" Babies don't need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach... it pisses me off! I'll go over to a little baby and say 'What are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life! "
― Steven Wright

I grew up in Goa. It’s the smallest state in India and is known for its tourist friendly beaches, spectacular nightlife and casinos. It’s like the Miami plus Las Vegas of the country. We get tourists from all over the world.

I’m not much of a gambler and I seldom go to these parties anymore but I do find myself going to the beach every now and then to enjoy the peace and the natural beauty of the places where the land meets the sea. For me the sound of water playing pull and push with the land is soothing and even comforting. It’s like nature’s own melody.

Following is a list of the best gifts for people who love beaches. Pick one that suits your recipient.


Beach Themed Wall Clock

It’s better to give gifts that are aesthetically pleasing. Recipients prefer those over the ones that are more practical. This beautiful clock with a aerial view of a beach will be perfect for a recipient who loves beaches.

It makes for a nice decorative piece too. The frame is made out of bamboo wood and it comes with a built-in hook. And once they put it up on their wall they’ll get to see the stunning sight of the beach every time they look to see the time.


Beach Art Backpack

A gift should be practical enough so that the recipients can put them to use, although inefficient gifts are better for certain situations. This gorgeous beach themed backpack will be a great gift for anyone who is fond of beaches. It’s useful as well as pretty.

The design is inspired by beach photos and watercolor artwork that imitates waves. It’s made from premium quality material so it’ll last long. Ideal for students or anyone who uses a backpack regularly.


Deep Sea Moving Sand Art

Many beach lovers enjoy the view of waves coming to the shore before they go back to the sea, only to come back again. They find the rhythm soothing. I guess it is because it provides a break from the usual hectic nature of modern life filled with chaos and uncertain situations.

This moving sand art is no match for the real thing, but your recipient will appreciate having something around that replicates it and reminds them of their favorite place to be.


Seahorse Wall Decor

It’s good practice to consider your recipient’s interests when picking a gift for them, but you don’t always need to be too specific. Unless you’re a literal mind reader or know your recipient too well, there’s always going to be a mismatch between what they want and what you think they do.

You’re better off picking something that matches their general interests or relates to them. It also helps if they can put it use, even if the utility is looking nice on a wall. This exquisite seahorse wall decor is a fine gift idea for someone who like beaches.

Sunglasses designed to float on water is what I call a necessary innovation. I guess some guy was fed up with having to go scavenge the pool every time he accidentally dropped it in water.

Beach Themed Shell Holder

Shell collection is an important hobby. Who knows, one day you’re collecting shells off the beach and end up discovering the secrets of the ocean that lead to amazing discoveries that change the modern world. Well, it’s a possibility. Charles Darwing used to do the same.

Beaches Photo Book

If you want to help with the survival of the overgrowing population of a species called “photographers” you can consider buying and gifting this to your recipient. No one reads anymore so photobooks are the new books. I’m sure the literature in the future will be 50% emojis and 50% savvy tweets.

This is a good choice of gift for any beach lover and a great choice if they’re into photography.


Beach Themed Dish Towel

We live in the age where we value equality so how can regular towels get to be printed on and you can leave out dish towels? After all, even dish towels deserve a shot at having a creative design makes them stand out from the crowd of boring plain dish towels. And so we have this product.

The Beach - Movie by Danny Boyle

The Beach directed by Danny Boyle and starring Lionardo Decaprio is the kind of a movie that someone who loves beaches will be interested in watching. Give them this DVD so they can have something to watch whenever they miss going to the beach.


Beach Themed Phone Purse

Remember the times when mobile phones used to be too big to fit in our pockets? Yeah, those times have returned and people need something to carry their 20 inch screen smartphones phones.

You can gift this beach themed purse to any woman who owns a phone, which makes it pretty universal. Only aliens don’t own phones. That’s because they use telepathy to communicate. And their world is too politically correct to have entertainment. Don’t gift this to an alien. And if you know one, just tell us. People need to know. All those UFO conspiracy theorists are going crazy not knowing. Save them.


Beach Sand Coasters

They say invention is born out of necessity. I imagine some guy sitting at the beach, he digs his bottle into the sand to keep it standing while he checks how many likes he got for the overexposed beach selfie he just posted with a caption inspired by a tumblr post about nature. After he’s done dealing with the disappointment of the lower than expected number of likes he turns around to find a bigger tragedy. The hole wasn’t big enough and the bottle is toppled, his beer consumed by the sand. He says to himself. “I wish there was some way to prevent this.”

He’s an optimist and figures he should make something out of a bad situation. Suddenly he hears the wind talking to him. There’s is whisper, “Beach sand coasters!” And thus a new product idea is born. I don’t know if it happened that way, but whatever the origin story we now have this gift from god to the beach loving, beer drinking mortals. This is clever gift idea that is hard to be not impressed by.


Beach Towel

May be you’re wondering why there are multiple towels in this list. Well, it’s a list of beach themed gifts. People go swimming. You need towels. I’m just giving you choices. America likes its freedom. And having twenty four billion choices for everything represents that.

This one is a lightweight, easy to pack and carry towel that is very popular. I like the design too. It will make a fine gift for any beach going person.


Starfish Plaque For Beach Lovers

This is a kind of thing you can gift someone knowing that while they won’t really be impressed yet not hate it either. It’s like having your first date with someone in a restaurant–you could do something more interesting but it’s better than having it in your parents’ basement. This is a safe gift that’ll do its job as a gift.

This is an Ideal present for someone you don’t really know that well.


The Essential Goa Cookbook

If you skipped the intro, which you probably did, you social media induced impatience suffering person, you should know that I’m from Goa which is known for its awesome beaches and delicious seafood. It used to be Portuguese colony so it has its own unique food culture which is a fusion of the native Konkani style and the portuguese mix added to it.

The recipes are a must try. Not many vegan recipes in it though, mostly seafood. So don’t gift this book to a vegan. I won’t be held responsible if they attempt to lecture you out of existence about the evils of seafood.


Beach Flip Flop Wall Ornament

In case you’re the DIY gift types I recommend you do not attempt to make this out of your old flip flops. That will be a very weird gift and they won’t care about the efforts you put into it. Unless they’re weirder, in which case they might just find it to be the best gift ever.
