The best beach-themed gifts for beach lovers

Beach-themed gifts for large budgets

#1 Portable beach umbrella

Beach umbrella

Beach lovers love chilling and sunbathing at the beach. But we all know that too much sun can harm your skin. So if you care about the person you are getting this gift for and you want them to stay safe, then this portable beach umbrella is the perfect gift for you.

And what’s great about this umbrella is that it’s specifically designed to fit in a suitcase. So beach lovers can take it with them on each beach vacation.


#2 Sandproof speakers

JBL Go 3 speaker

A day at the beach is always a good day. But with music, it’s even better!

But with the ocean and sand all around, most people don’t dare to take their precious speakers to the beach. And that is exactly what makes JBL speakers the best gifts for beach lovers who love music.

All portable speakers by JBL are sand- and waterproof, so they can easily be taken to the beach.

JBL Go is the smallest design and is perfect for people who don’t have much space in their beach bags.


#3 Sandproof beach blanket

Large beach blanket

Wekapo’s beach blankets are one of the most essential gifts for beach lovers.

Don’t you just hate it when everything is covered in sand after a beach day? And when you’re wrapping up and packing your towel, it’s still covered in sand, even though you brushed it off?

Well, say goodbye to those annoyances, because the beach blanket by Wekapo is specifically designed for sand to fall off easily.

They come in three different sizes; for 1-3 people, for 1-5 people, and for 1-8 people. So you can have a family day at the beach with just one blanket. And what’s also great about them is that they are incredibly light (14 oz/about 400 grams) and can easily be packed in a beach bag.


#4 Beach-themed gifts for her: necklace

Ocean necklace

Do you need beach-themed gifts for a woman who loves jewelry and the ocean? Then this cute ocean wave pendant is the perfect gift!

#5 Fatboy air lounger

Fatboy air lounger

Fatboy’s air loungers are great gifts for beach lovers.

In case you have no idea what a Fatboy or an air lounger is, let me explain.

Essentially, it’s a large bag made from nylon material. All you have to do is fill this bag with air (usually by waving it around and “scooping” air), then quickly wrap it up and click it together. And your large air lounger is made.

The best thing is the fact that it’s incredibly small (if it’s uninflated) and lightweight, yet it can be converted to a comfortable sofa in no time.


#6 Bikini

Bikini

What’s a day at the beach without swimwear?

If you are looking for cute beach gifts for women, then a bikini or bathing suit is the perfect gift.

I loved this yellow one from Amazon, but obviously, you should find one that the recipient will love.

If you are looking for beach gifts for men, check out #16.


#7 Beach-themed earrings

Are you looking for unique beach-themed gifts for her?

Then these heart-shaped studs made with sand are the perfect gift.

What makes them truly unique is the fact that you can choose sand from 1800 different shores to be used for this gift. Or if you have access to the recipient’s favorite beach, you can also send sand from that beach to be used in these earrings.


#8 Foldable chair

Foldable chair

Foldable chairs may not be one of the most unique gifts for beach lovers, they are one of the most practical.

This chair is not only foldable (so easy to take to the beach) but also convertible into a comfortable lounge.


#9 Beach-themed gifts for the home

Are you looking for beach-themed gifts for someone’s home? Then wall art is always a good idea.

You can find all sorts of beach-related wall art on Amazon, so check that one out for different options.

If you are looking for beach-themed gifts for a family that loves the beach, go for the personalized beach print from Uncommon Goods. You can customize the number of people on the print, what they wear and how they look to match the recipient’s family.


#10 Floating sunglasses

Rheos sunglasses

Rheos sunglasses are super practical gifts for beach lovers and water lovers. Their sunglasses are not only fashionable and of high quality, but they are also specifically designed to stay afloat on water. So people who spend a lot of time on or near water don’t have to worry about dropping their sunglasses.


#11 Water bottles

This water bottle with a special storage part at the bottom is also one of the best practical beach gifts.

The water bottle is made from stainless steel and has double walls, so whether you add hot or cold water, it stays at that temperature for a long time. And the storage part is large enough for keys, money, or small items, so they don’t have to worry about where to keep the keys in a safe place.


Beach-themed gifts for mid budgets

#12 Portable safe lock

Portable safe

Are you looking for more practical gifts for beach lovers? Then this portable safe for their personal belongings is the gift you need.

It’s made from a strong ABS plastic, that’s very tightly sealed, and waterproof (which is very important at the beach).

There is a 3 digit code that the recipients can choose themselves. And what I liked most about the safe is that it comes with a steel cable, so the recipient can lock it to something fixed such as a fence.

The safe measures 6.2 x 2.5 x 7.5 inches ( 15.75 x 6.35 x 19.05 cm). So it’s small enough to be taken in a beach bag but large enough to fit a wallet, passport, and phone. Unfortunately, cameras probably won’t fit in this safe, unless it’s a very compact one.


#13 Books about beaches

Bliss beaches

Bliss beaches

Are you looking for beach-themed gifts for someone who loves beautiful photography? Then this book with beautiful photos of blissful beaches is what you need.


Beaches

Beaches by Gray Malin

Beaches is a beautiful coffee table book for people who love to glance through photographs of beaches.


#14 Beach-themed passport cover

Are you looking for beach-themed gifts for people who travel frequently? Then a passport cover with a beach theme is perfect!

I quite liked the one with “Beach Please”. But check out Zazzle for more options.


#15 Reef-friendly sunscreen

Sun Bum skincare

Are you looking for more beach gifts to keep the recipient safe?

Then this skincare gift set by Sun Bum is perfect. It includes a daily cleanser, sunscreen moisturizer, and a restoring facemask. It’s not only a great gift to protect the recipient’s skin, but Sun Bum’s sunscreens also protect the coral reef.

There are two ingredients (oxybenzone and octinoxate) that are often used in sunscreen. But which actually have a toxic effect on plants, algae, and coral.

So Sun Bum’s sunscreen is produced without these two ingredients to help protect the ocean.


#16 Men’s swim shorts

Swim shorts

If you are looking for fun and practical beach gifts for men, swim shorts are the perfect gift.

Again, try to find one the recipient will love. Perhaps he is more into speedos instead of shorts. Or perhaps he prefers less colorful shorts.

Or maybe he just loves the same shorts as I do, in that case, you should definitely go for this one with arrows and bows.


#17 Swimsuit cover-up

White beach cover-up

Beach cover-ups are super practical gifts for beach lovers. Especially for women (but I’m sure you already guessed that).

It’s a very simple but elegant way for women to cover up their bathing suits if they want to grab a bite somewhere.


#18 Beach bag with cooler

White beach bag

This beach bag with a specific part at the bottom than can be used as a cooler is one of the most practical gifts for beach lovers who hate carrying bags. From now on they only have to carry one bag.

The cooler part is separated with a zipper and has a special leak-proof design, so the rest of your items are safely stored in the upper part.


#19 Changing poncho

Changing poncho

Changing ponchos are another one of those life-changing beach gifts.

Beach lovers no longer have to try and change while also holding a towel around their waist, and balancing on one foot.

It’s made from microfiber material so it dries quickly and weighs barely anything. Which makes it easy for beach lovers to bring to the beach.

And what I loved about this specific poncho is the fact that it can also be used as a beach towel. And of course, the cute pink design. But I can imagine that’s not for everyone. Luckily, you can find plenty of changing ponchos on Amazon. Or check out my surfer’s gifts guide where I included a surf-changing poncho.


#20 Beach storage pillow

This storage pillow is probably one of my favorite beach gear.

First of all, pillows are super practical and comfortable to have at the beach. But the inflatable ones blow away on windy days, and other larger ones just take up a lot of space.

But these ones also have a special compartment to store items such as your keys or phone. It’s the perfect way to keep your items from being stolen, from heating in the sun, and from getting covered with sand.


#21 Foldable hat

Foldable hat

This foldable sunhat is one of the best beach gifts for women. Most hats will be ruined if you fold them and put them in your beach bag or suitcase. But these ones are specifically designed to get right back into their regular shape, once you take them out of your bags!


Beach-themed gifts for small budgets

#22 Beach cup holder

Two beach cup holders

These beach cup holders are super practical gifts for beach lovers who also love a drink (or two). They can keep their cups in these holders, so they are not covered with sand and more importantly, their cups are not as easily tipped over.


#23 Beach games

Beach tennis

Beach games are definitely one of my favorite gifts for beach lovers. But I guess that’s because I love games.

Two of the most popular beach games include beach tennis and frisbee. They are small and easy to take to the beach, and it’s a fun activity at the beach.


#24 Water shoes

Water shoes

Water shoes are also one of the great practical beach gifts. They may not be the most exciting or unique gifts. Though, I think these colorful ones definitely add some uniqueness to this gift.

But don’t worry if these are a bit too bright for the recipient, they are available in different colors and prints.


#25 More beach-themed gifts: luggage tags
