Whether it’s the holiday season, a special occasion, or just a quick gift for the fellow beach lover in your life, there are plenty of fabulous gifts out there for you to choose from that are quick and easy to buy. The beach-inspired gifts listed below are just a few of our favorite things. Not only do they make great gifts for others, but they’re also perfect gifts for yourself before your Indian Rocks Beach vacation on the Florida Gulf Coast. Make your list and check it twice!
Bamboo Floating Polarized Sunglasses
Polarized sunglasses are a must for any Florida beach vacation. What makes them even better? If they can float! These classic-style bamboo sunglasses work for both men and women. Because of the porous nature of bamboo, these sunglasses will float in water making it so much easier to retrieve them if they get away from you in the Gulf of Mexico or in the pool. Because they’re made with real bamboo, each pair is unique—but they all are flexible, durable, and come with scratch-resistant coatings on the lenses. Buy it on Amazon.
Sand and Water Resistant Beach Blanket
No one likes sand in all the wrong places. This sand-free beach mat has a soft, smooth inner liner that repels sand and water, and wipes clean of any dirt or stains. It is machine washable, too. It can also double as an indoor/outdoor playmat for the kids and as a dog seat cover. This blanket easily folds into a lightweight, compact zippered tote with pocket and shoulder carrying strap for easy transport. As the writer of this blog, I was gifted this style of beach blanket and use it every single time I go to the beach. Click here to buy it on Amazon.
Sport-Brella Vented SPF 50+ Beach Canopy
The Sport-Brella makes a great gift for families who prefer to have some protection from the elements during their beach vacation without sacrificing any of the views. It’s an all-in-one beach umbrella, sun tent, rain shelter and more. This 8-foot canopy is easy to setup and carry, plus it has zippered windows to allow for air flow making it the perfect beach companion for your family vacation. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, too. It’s a colorful and functional gift for all types of beach goers. Click here to buy it on Amazon.

Bring it to the beach and share it with your friends, or use it for a date night with the one you love. It’s roomy enough and has extra storage for all your other beach essentials like your towel, devices, keys, wallet and more in the separate main storage compartment. We can all agree that this is a fashionable and functional beach gift! Click here to buy it on Amazon.

Not all beach bags are created equal. This very spacious mesh bag is designed for family use at the beach or pool, and the insulated cooler bag is fully detachable and allows you to bring drinks, fruits and snacks for the family. The bag has tons of pockets and space for your towels, swim suits, flip flops, water bottles, glasses, sunblock, toys and other items plus a zippered interior pocket to place keys, wallet, phone and other valuables. Mesh is easy to clean, dry and let your wet items breathe. Just shake out any sand when the bag is empty. Buy it on Amazon.
High Speed, High Capacity Portable Device Charger
We’ve all been at the beach or pool all day long when we realize that our devices are getting low on power and need charging ASAP. That’s where a portable power charger comes in real handy. This travel-friendly portable charger offers high-speed charging to virtually any mobile device and thanks to the huge 20 000mAh capacity you can keep your devices charged for days no matter where you are. It fits easily into a beach bag, and you can connect the included wall charger to fully recharge it in less than 7 hours. Click here to buy it on Amazon.
Universal Waterproof Case (Fits iPhone 12 & 12 Pro Max)
Speaking of devices, most of us use them at the beach, at the pool—and well, just about everywhere. Most of the latest phones are water resistant, but with the hefty price tag do you really want to risk it? For a little extra protection from the water and sand, a waterproof case is a nice safety net to have. It’s also helpful to keep your cash, cards, keys and other valuables dry and nearby. The convenient strap makes it easy to carry and use for swimming, surfing, fishing, rafting and jet skiing. And it’s a 2 pack for a really reasonable price! Buy it on Amazon here.
