The holidays are right around the corner, and that means that we all have to start gift shopping! Luckily, we're here to make that a little less stressful. Whether you're from Hawaii, sunny California, or the Florida Keys, we all have at least one beach bum in our life. Here's a gift guide to make shopping for them easy!
Island Fin Design is a brand that specializes in fins for surfboards and is based in Oahu. With their handmade fins, you can customize your board with a personal flare! They also have apparel for those who appreciate easy, minimal styles that can be worn on a beach day (or anywhere, really).
Float Naked is a California-based pool float brand that's been floating around a lot of people's Instagrams (pun intended). Whether you're at the beach or pool, these floats are a blast. They make perfect gifts and retail for $30--grab one for yourself, too!
Beach Road is a brand that eliminates the need for the average beach towel. They specialize in beach "sheets" that are not eyesores, like most towels. They come in a lot of different colors and prints, so you're bound to find something for anyone and everyone!
For the more adventurous type, Venture Hawaii makes cool bags, apparel, and accessories. They cater to those that love nature, being outdoors, and a good adventure. You'll find products for men, women, and youth, making it a great one-stop-shop this holiday season!
Everyone needs a beach hat! Our favorite brand, Hemlock Hat Co., makes awesome hats that actually protect your face from the sun. They have a "FUNctional" approach to their hats, making them ideal for those who love different colors, prints, and adventure!
Lastly, Waiakea makes a great gift! Give a case of our water to your family or friends! It'll keep them hydrated in the dryer winter months, and it's something everyone needs. Don't forget about Waiakea apparel too--they're the perfect complement with a giveback component; 1 tee equals 5 trees planted! Apparel is currently available to pre-order here and is definitely a post-beach day must have!
Hopefully, holiday shopping is a little easier now! Mele Kalikimaka, ohana!
