Practical Beach Gifts

In this first section of the best gifts for beach lovers, we’ll have a look at some more practical gifts which make a day at the beach both safe and comfortable.

1. Sunscreen

Sunscreen is an essential item and therefore an always welcome gift for beach-lovers, especially if they want to protect their skin from sunburn, wrinkles, and cancer.

When choosing the right sunscreen, it’s important to select a formula with an SPF of at least 30 and UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection.

Ideally you also want something that’s waterproof and long lasting so you get the best protection possible when spending time in the sun.

Here’s the sunscreen I recommend;

2. SBF Lip Balm

I don’t know about you, but my lips are super sensitive to the sun and if I don’t wear factor 50 lip balm they regularly get burned. (Which is really sore and uncomfortable, especially if you then try to eat spicy food!).

I have tried every lip balm under the sun (excuse the pun) and this is by far the best! I buy it by the boatload!

Clearly not something a digital nomad wants to lug around the world, but a great gift for a beach lover, portable beach chairs are lightweight, durable and easy to fold up, making them the ideal choice for beachgoers.

Here are some of the best options for beach lovers:

The Picnic Time Portable Beach Chair is a great option for ultimate beach comfort. It features a sturdy steel frame and an adjustable backrest, so it can conform to your preferences. The included insulated pocket and straps make it easy to carry, and this chair is perfect for long days in the sand and sun.

The Bestway floating cooler is definitely one of the best items to bring along to a beach day since it holds up to 24 cans and keeps them cold as you swim and play.

Thanks to the insulation and thicker walls, no matter how hot the day gets, your drinks and treats will stay cool and refreshing. Plus, you won’t need to worry about sand or dirt entering the cooler.

5. Beach Umbrella

If traveling the globe, most places you’ll be able to rent a beach umbrella, however for a more localized gift, a beach umbrella is an excellent gift for any beach-goer.

A beach umbrella shades you from the sun and provides some protection if it’s raining. Beach umbrellas come in a variety of sizes and colors to fit any taste.

When shopping for a beach umbrella, look for one that’s easy to set up. Many umbrellas come with a telescopic pole so you don’t have to bend over to open it up.

Consider one that incorporates a sand anchor to keep it stable in windy conditions. If you’re buying for a person who regularly camps, look into beach umbrellas that double as a shelter, most pop open and come with a carry bag for easy storage and transport.

6. Beach Bag

Beach bags are crucial for storing your beach essentials and keeping all your items together. We love our beach bag and picking the right one is essential. It needs to be big enough to store a couple of towels plus, sunscreen and other nik-naks, but not so big, it becomes unwieldy and too heavy to carry.

If you really want to go the extra mile, consider buying a beach bag and filling it with special items such as towels, sunscreen, beach clips etc.

Here are my top recommendations for beach bags for beach lovers.

The Scout BJ Beach Bag offers a convenience that no other beach bag does. It has plenty of pockets on the outside and inside so you don’t have dig through your bag. The water resistant fabric helps to keep moisture away from your items and it’s big enough to fit a towel and ample beach supplies.

8. Snorkeling Set

For beach lovers looking to explore the sea’s natural beauty, a snorkeling set is an essential tool. Snorkeling sets typically contain goggles, a snorkel tube and fins, and are perfect for swimmers of all ages and abilities.

Whether you’re eyeing a basic snorkeling gear for children or a professional adult set, it’s important to make sure the material is durable and of good quality.

Look for masks that offer good visibility and are comfortable and lightweight, snorkels with no holes and adjustable straps, and fins that fit the contour of your feet.

If you’re gifting a snorkeling set to a beginner, it’s a nice touch to include a tutorial guide or video about snorkeling techniques and safety tips for the recipient.

9. Sand-Proof Beach Towel

A beach towel is essential for those who love to spend time at the beach. Whether it’s used to dry off after a dip in the water, or to provide a comfortable spot to relax and eat lunch, no day at the beach is complete without one.

But regular towels and beach blankets can get sandy and wet, making them uncomfortable to lay on. Enter the sand resistant beach towel.

The perfect gift for beach lovers, this towel will keep them comfortable and clean so they can enjoy their day at the beach without worrying about carrying damp and sandy blankets home.

This sand-proof beach blanket by Wekapo is made from durable ripstrong nylon that not only repels water but also prevents sand from sticking. It’s machine washable for easy cleaning. This blanket comes in fun colors and prints, and is large enough for two or more people.

Measuring 7 foot” x 7 foot”, this sand-proof blanket will easily fit into any beach bag or tote. Also, it’s lightweight and comes with a convenient storage bag, so you can take it along wherever your beach adventures take you.

10. Sunglasses

No beach lover’s outfit is complete without a pair of stylish sunglasses. Whether it’s sitting in the sand, taking a dip in the surf, or venturing for a long walk along the beach, sunglasses are essential for any beach lover.

For sun-soaked days and extra protection, opt for polarized lenses. Polarized lenses reduce glare, making it easier to enjoy the sights of the beach without having to squint.

Not only that, mirrored sunglasses are an eye-catching alternative to conventional lenses and make a bold statement on the beach.

Pick a wide brimmed hat, a cap with a wide brim, or what I call a jungle hat with a flap that protects the neck. Each will give ample protection when staying out in the sun for long hours.

Here’s some recommendations;

Water shoes are designed to be lightweight and breathable, making them a comfortable and supportive piece of footwear suitable for wearing in and around the water. They feature a sole made of thick rubbery material which ensures excellent traction on slippery surfaces and a secure grip to help swimming. They also come with mesh material which allows for maximum breathability and quick drying.

Surfboard wax is an essential accessory for surfing beach lovers as it helps to increase the traction of their surfboard so they can ride with confidence. The wax helps to form a tight bond between the surfer and the board, allowing for finer control and a better riding experience.

Surfboard wax ranges from soft to hard depending on the temperature of the water and the conditions in which you will be surfing. Soft wax is best suited for warmer waters, while a harder wax may be necessary for colder conditions. Some waxes may even help to reduce the drag created by the surfboard, further increasing the ability to maneuver and control the board.

Whether you choose a wax that is organic, biodegradable, or made from recycled materials, you are sure to find something that meets your beach-loving loved one’s needs. Many of these waxes come in an array of colors and scents, giving them an even more unique and personal touch.

39. Fly Fishing Rod

If you know someone who loves the beach and loves to fish, a fly fishing rod could be the perfect gift. A fly fishing rod will allow them to take their favorite hobby even further and explore the true wonders of the coastline. They can use the rod to catch a variety of fish species in shallow, sandy waters, where fish tend to hide and feed.

Fly fishing may seem intimidating and complex to those who are unfamiliar, but once a person gets the hang of it, it can be incredibly rewarding and challenging, as well! A quality fly fishing rod and some basic supplies, such as flies and a reel, will provide your beach-loving loved one with countless hours of fun and adventure.

A fly fishing rod can cost anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the type, brand, and model you choose. Selecting the right one, though, can be tricky.

Look for an option that fits the individual’s skill level and experience. Some rods are more suitable for beginners, while others are more advanced. Additionally, consider the materials—do you want something light and durable, like fiberglass? Or something heavier and more powerful, like graphite?

Finally, be sure to choose the right length and weight based on the type of waters the recipient will be fishing in. A heavier rod will work best in fast-flowing bodies of water, while a lighter one is best for slower, calmer waters. Fishing gifts will be one of the great gifts for Beach Lovers.

40. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Best Gifts for Beach Loving Digital Nomads

Digital Nomads don’t need much as they’re usually trying to travel light and so don’t need any bulky gifts weighing them down.

Here are some suggestions for the beach loving digital nomad in your life;

69. Backpack

Best purchased with the nomad by your side. If they’re trekking around the world, they will want a backpack that fits them well and molds into the shape of their back. This depends on their height and weight etc. It’s best if they can try them on first.

Also backpacks come in varying weights so you’ll want to check with your nomadic pal precisely how much they want to carry on their back.

70. A Mirrorless or DSLR Camera

Perhaps your beach loving nomad friend is a photography enthusiast and loves to take photos of the ocean, sunsets and white powdery sand on their travels.

If so, you might want to consider buying them a powerful mirrorless or DSLR camera to complement their adventures.

My recommendation particularly for beginners or long term travelers is the Sony Alpha a6400.

This is a mirrorless camera and features a 24.2 MP Exmor CMOS sensor, which is capable of capturing photos and videos of extremely high quality. It also features a 180° tiltable LCD touch screen, making it easy for you to take stunning selfies for your blog and get creative with your shots. It comes equipped with a lot of powerful features, such as 4K Movie Mode, Eye AF, Interval Shooting and 4K HDR.

To summarize all the acronyms, it’s a pretty awesome camera that takes really good pictures! 🙂

In addition to its powerful features, the Alpha a6400 is lightweight, making it one of the most user-friendly cameras out there (and great for backpack travel).

71. Camera Accessories

If your budget doesn’t stretch quite as far as a camera, consider some camera accessories to go with the camera they already have.

Perhaps a small camera bag or protective case. Some extra batteries, a tripod, filters, SD cards etc.

72. Microfibre Quick Dry Towel

The last thing a digital nomad wants to be carrying is a big fluffy towel which takes up all the space and weight of their backpack.

These fast drying, lightweight, foldable microfiber towels come in a handy carry case which can slip into the side of a backpack and add no bulk to a traveler’s gear.

73. Sarong

For the female digital nomads in your life, a beach sarong can double as a towel, skirt, blanket, dress, sun dress, scarf, head scarf and more!

These versatile pieces of decorative cloth are the ideal gift for a beach loving digital nomad, and with no weight at all, fit perfectly in their backpack.

74. Travel Journal

What better way for a digital nomad to record their travels than via a lightweight easy to use travel journal.

A travel journal can help your beach loving friends, plan their trip, diarize their bookings, keep a track of budgets and record special events and memories.

Buy them unlimited access to a travel app, or purchase a beautiful personalized travel journal they can treasure forever.
