Now, no trip to the beach would go well without a good coverup. Coverups make for great gifts for a beach vacation.

Gifts for Someone Going to Hawaii

Not everyone who goes to the beach goes to Hawaii. But everyone who goes to Hawaii goes to the beach.

This paradise is like a magnet to beachgoers everywhere. And while your standard beach apparel would work, a special beach deserves special beach gear.

Here are some beach vacation gifts for beach lovers:

Sand Resistant Beach Towel

One of the most essential pieces of beach gear are good beach towels. And this Sand Resistant Beach Towel is more than good; it’s perfect.

Beach Pillow

So sand isn’t always the most comfortable thing to lay on. It’s mostly fine, but a good pillow is a necessity.

However, normal pillows are bulky, and air-filled ones tend to blow around.

Luckily, the Ballast Beach Pillow solves both of these issues. Inflatable, its design still allows it to stay put, even on a windy beach. 

This is one of the gifts for beach goers they will love to get! Check the latest prices.

Waterproof Phone Pouch

Now, of course, you’re bringing your phone to the beach. How else are you going to get one of those viral shark videos? The problem is, that both sand and water are terrible for phones.

That’s where the Universal Waterproof Case, Hiearcool Waterproof Phone Pouch comes into play.

This clear pouch allows full access to your phone while protecting it from harmful elements. Check the latest prices.

Beach Umbrella Sun Shade

Of course, the sun is a major part of why you head to the beach. But too much sun brings its own problems. That’s why a good umbrella or beach tent is crucial.

The Pop Up Umbrella/Shelter serves both functions. It can be just a sunshade or a full tent. It is a great foldable sun protector for when you next go to the beach! Check the latest prices.

Reef-Safe Sunscreen

Of course, you aren’t just going to hide out in a tent the whole time. But the sun will still be there. Which is why you need to invest in a good sunscreen.

Reef Repair SPF Sunscreen combines good coverage and protection with the convenience of liquid sunscreen. Check the latest prices.

Water Shoes

Finally, while walking on the beach can be very relaxing, stepping on lava rock generally isn’t.

So, a good pair of water shoes, like the Speedo Women’s Surf Strider Water Shoes are essential. They slip on and off for convenience but will offer protection during walks. Check the latest prices.

Practical Beach Bag

There are so many beach bag gifts, but most of them lock in sand, and aren’t fun when they get wet.

You will want a cute but practical beach bag to keep everything nice, neat, and safe from the water and sand.

This beach bag is made from mesh and has a detachable cooler, perfect for cool drinks when the sun is nice and hot.

It is another one of the great gifts for people who love the beach. Check the latest prices.
