    You can never have too many cosmetic bags, and the marine life theme printed on this one will please your favorite beachcomber. This bag has a zipper closure and measures 10″ x 5″ x 6″. It’s roomy enough to use for cosmetics, toiletries, prescriptions or medications, manicure tools, and lots of other small items you take on trips. On working trips I’ve even used one for office supplies such as pens, clips, scratch pads and sticky notes. See it on Amazon

    These natural tone seashell coasters would make a nice choice for everything from a stocking stuffer to a hostess gift. Each coaster in this set of four measures 4.5 by 4.5 inches. The top is thirsty to absorb condensation, and the underside is cork to protect furniture from scratches. You can count on good quality because they’re made by CoasterStone. Any avid beach goer or shell collector will love the designs, and the colors are in the neutral tones of nature that will blend well with a variety of decorating schemes. See it on Amazon

  4. Personalized Visor for Sun Lovers

    Personalized Visor for Sun Lovers - Zazzle

    Here’s a personalized visor that looks great and offers protection at the same time. The art is designed by logotees, and this is from Zazzle so you can customize it any way you like. You’re also getting more than just a great looking face shade. It’s lightweight, comfortable, and has a terry sweatband, and the quick dry fabric helps keep you cool. It even has a black “undervisor” to help reduce glare from sun and sand. The quality of this is so nice that it’s a favorite in triathlons as well as for golfers, tennis players and other athletes. No matter how much you love the sunshine, these days everyone of every age is concerned about what those harmful might be doing to our skin. Hats are great and really cute, but the rim gets in the way when you’re sitting in a lounge chair. That’s when I enjoy having a visor to protect my face, and I can always use sunscreen to protect my ears and neck. See it on Zazzle

  5. Rimobul Sand Away Beach Treasures Seashell Pocket Mesh Bags

    click to see it on Amazon

    Do all your beach loving friends and family a favor – give them these mesh bags for beachcombers so they’ll stop strolling on the shore carrying a Wally World sack. You get a set of 4, so there are enough for a family or divide them up to use as stocking stuffers. Each sack measures 11 inches by 13.5 inches, and the shoulder strap is adjustable. They’re good for all the little treasures picked up along the shore or for just a handy way to tote a pair of flip flops. And really, considering the time and money spent on finding just the right swimsuit, sunshades, hat, etc., shouldn’t every beach goer have a decent collecting bag to carry? See it on Amazon

  6. Icy Cools Reusable Ice Cubes for Coolers

    click to see it on Amazon

    With these eco friendly reusable ice cubes, nature lovers can keep drinks cool without wasting water. In this 3-pack set you get 45 cubes that measure 2″ x 2″, which adds up to about the same as ten pounds of ice. The environmentally conscious will appreciate having a way to conserve water instead of dumping it out of their cooler at the end of the day. Anyone will appreciate the convenience and savings since they can use these over and over instead of having to run to the store to pick up a bag of ice. That sandwich you packed for a beach afternoon won’t end up floating in water, and your beach towel won’t get soaked by water draining from your cooler! See it on Amazon

On the practical side, it comes in youth sizes from XS to XL, and the fabric is pre-shrunk 100% cotton. White might be tough to keep clean on young children, but not to worry.

    click to see it on Amazon

    This is a really nice choice because this all-in-one sand chair is not only attractive but also very handy! First, it gives you 5 position options from lying flat to sitting up, stretching your legs to enjoy the sand or surf on your toes. For convenience it’s got an insulated cup holder on the chair arm and a towel holder on the back. Also on the back of the chair are a small mesh storage pouch and a mini insulated cooler. Finally, there’s a little pouch on the chair arm for keys and small items, and the zipper pull is a bottle opener. All that, and it still weighs only 7 1/2 pounds. It’s made of quality aluminum, which makes it rustproof but also sturdy and durable, and backpack straps make it easy to carry. This little sand lounger must have been designed by someone who spends a lot of time on the beach because they thought of everything. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and includes all you need to totally relax with all your necessities right at your fingertips. See it on Amazon

It measures 9 inches square so it’s not too large for a coffee table at home or the beach, or even for a kid’s bedroom. It’s also small enough to easily take with you on vacation. The board is made of wood, and the playing pieces are resin so it’s very durable whether you travel with it, drop it, or just enjoy years of playing with it. See it on Amazon

    Smart Phone Case for the Flip Flop Freak - Zazzle

  16. I’d Rather Be Shelling Beach Tote

    Cute Beach Tote

    Yes, one more beach tote, but I could resist because this one is just so cute and original – created by DancingPelican at Zazzle. This tote comes in eight different colors and is a really nice size, 18.5 inches wide by 13.5 inches tall. It’s just right for loading up with books, cell phone, sunscreen, and everything else you need for a seaside outing. It has an outside pocket and straps long enough to let you carry it as a shoulder bag if you like, and personally I find that especially helpful at the beach. The fabric is cotton canvas that will hold up to being over-stuffed and can be washed when it has seen a few too many days in the sand. This is pretty much a “can’t go wrong” gift choice because seriously, a girl can always use another bag. I know that when I pack for a week long trip to the shore it never fails that just when every bag is full I remember a few more must-have items. That’s when those extra totes sure are handy, or dare I say essential. See it at Zazzle

    click to see it on Amazon

    Another very nice piece of jewelry, this 14K Gold Sand Dollar Necklace makes a wonderful gift because it is such a big step up from the usual beach bling. I’m not ashamed to say I love my ultra inexpensive costume jewelry from souvenir shops. It’s cute and fun to wear while it lasts, and it’s perfectly suitable for most any occasion at the beach – really, being elegant at home and at the beach are two entirely different things. However, the piece pictured above is beach jewelry on a whole other level. The beautiful sand dollar starfish pendant is authentic 14K gold – not gold plated or gold filled. It’s on an 18″ chain with a spring ring clasp, and it comes in a gift box. This is a quality piece of jewelry that you’ll be proud to give as a gift, or to wear anywhere no matter how dressy the occasion. See it on Amazon
