With holiday shopping chaos in full effect, it’s time to start narrowing down the search for your True Beach Lover’s perfect gift. If you’re running short on time to browse in-store or, let’s be honest, you just don’t want to stand in line for hours, we’ve found the perfect gifts on to give the beach lover in your life. The best part? These gifts are all travel-friendly, so any TBL can easily bring these along on their next all-inclusive beach vacation.

Reusable water bottle

All of that beach-going can make a traveler thirsty! Having a water bottle that’s cute, reusable and functional is always necessary throughout your travels and even when you’re in-destination. This collapsible water bottle is the perfect gift for the beach lover in your life because it’s easy to travel with, durable and good for the environment, which is always a plus! For a more personal touch, this customizable, stainless steel tumbler would also be the perfect reusable water bottle to gift.

Snorkel mask

For the adventurous beach lover, we know they’d appreciate not having to use those masks given out on group snorkel outings. Help them feel prepared for their vacation with the perfect snorkel mask to take along so they can enjoy a little underwater action without having to worry about sharing germs or getting salt water in their eyes. To really impress your TBL, you could even snag one of these more advanced full-face snorkel masks with a built-in air filter.

Carry-on cocktail kit (21+)

Don’t worry TBLs, there isn’t a holiday gift guide where we wouldn’t include this genius carry-on cocktail kit. Don’t even try to argue this one with us… Everyone (21+) could use one of these. It’s small enough to travel with in a carry-on and the perfect amount of goodness to help get your beach vacay started a little early!

Durable luggage

Can one go to the beach (or travel in general) without cute and practical luggage? This affordable carry-on luggage is the perfect gift for the frequent traveler in your life. We always recommend a durable, but cute carry-on to accompany you on your dream all-inclusive beach getaway to the Caribbean or Mexico! Most can fit everything you need for a week at the beach.

If you want to score some major brownie points from your beach lover, then this GoPro just might be the perfect gift. GoPros are great for adventure junkies and photography enthusiasts who always want to get the best shots on their outings. Your TBL can take their GoPro on a snorkeling adventure, zip lining excursion, parasailing outing–anywhere! To say this gift would be put to good is use is an understatement, for sure.

Soy wax candle

Since you can’t spend every day on the beach (sigh), why not bring the beach to the comfort of your home? In the season of cozy mornings or evenings avoiding the cold weather, give someone the gift of the beach with this beautifully scented soy wax candle that reminds of them of warmer days by the ocean. Gifting nontoxic, soy wax candles is also a great way to stay eco-friendly this holiday season!

Another hot ticket for beach lovers is a quality pair of sunglasses. Whether it’s as a stocking stuffer or a present under the tree, these Raybans are always a TBL favorite. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, we always recommend these mirrored aviators and vintage round sunglasses!

Selfie stick/tripod

Whether your beach lover is single or tied down, taking photos of themselves can be hard. We recommend sending them off to the beach with this selfie tripod. It’s small, bendable and travels easily. Trust us, they will thank you quicker than they’ll be taking their next selfie! This mini tripod is the perfect gift.


What beach lover wouldn’t want a giant hat to shield the sun? Everyone loves a good dose of Vitamin D but, sometimes, even we can get a little too much. A giant, floppy sunhat is the perfect way to shield your face and shoulders from the sun, making one the perfect gift for a beach lover!

Floating phone case

Every True Beach Lover needs to get the perfect shot to show everyone back home just how splendid their beach vacay was…. But things can get a little messy when it comes to technology and water. Gift your beach lover this floating phone case and they’ll have endless photos to share with you when they return.

Cute beach blanket/towel

For the True Beach Lover who likes to stand out when they’re on the beach, this adorable, oversized beach towel is the perfect gift for them. A beach lover can honestly never have too many beach towels or blankets! Plus, the more unique their towel is, the easier it is to find their spot after taking a walk or swim in the ocean.
