This gear is a must for any coastal getaway, be it a nightlife-filled jaunt to Mykonos or a relaxing escape to Maui.
We all have loved ones who are constantly scouring the globe in search of sun and shore.
And they have a good reason. Not only is a trip to the coast sure to be filled with beautiful over-ocean sunsets and a poolside cocktail or two, it’s actually been scientifically proven to be beneficial to our health. Just gazing out over blue water is enough to boost your mental health; though, did we really need research to tell us that?
When the holiday season rolls around, beach-themed gifts are the perfect pick-me-up, because they remind us of the warmer, more carefree days of summer. This year, we’ve compiled the most unique beach gift ideas for every sun-and-sand-seeker on your list — from the business traveler to the sports enthusiast, and from your best friend to the introvert in your life.
The ideal beach-inspired gift is practical, but it's got a little something extra, too. Take, for example, a silky after-sun body oil or an eye-catching surfboard from high-fashion French brand Hermès. Both are perfect examples of beach day necessities that are anything but average.
