Summer is the best time of the year for us island girls! I love going to the beach to swim, but only when the water’s warm, so winters in Australia are for beach walks ONLY … I guess cause I lived in the Caribbean so long, my body just can't do COLD water.
Not sure where you are, but today is going to be a stinker here in Coffs Harbour NSW..... 32 degrees by the sea, but 34 degrees in my little valley. Needless to say, I got my outside jobs done early, and have now retreated to the office AC.
In the spirit of 2020, its best to brighten up Christmas for your beach girl friends and family members by giving them a blast of island color.
Give a little "island-girl-groove" to your loved ones with these fun beach-themed gift ideas!
Here are my Top 6 suggested gifts for Beach Girls.... and they are mostly under $50.
Our number one suggested gift for your favourite beach girl is one of our pure cotton sarongs. You don't need to worry about what size they wear, as these sarongs are a generous one-size-fits-all, and the come adorably packaged for gift giving, with a bonus seaglass bracelet/anklet. Best part of all is that they double as a scarf for the winter months, keeping your neck surprisingly warm, and adding that touch of island color to your winter wardrobe. For only $25 this is a great stocking stuffer idea.

The number 2 best gift for an island girl who is unable to visit the island of their dreams this summer, is our deluxe jute bag. This natural fabric is super strong and durable and the bag is bigger than your average beach bag making it handy for other everyday uses.... not just beach days.
The bag is lined with the same cotton as our sarongs, so its a great item to match back to the sarongs too.
These foldable cotton beach bags are a great beach girl gift because they take up small space, and are easy to post. They have sturdy leather handles so are great for shopping all year round and they have a small coin purse attached.... SO handy for ensuring your keys or phone are not lost in the bottom of the bag, and once island travel resumes, its the perfect spot for safe keeping of your room key.
