Unique Beach Gifts for Mom that She’ll Absolutely Love

This post: Year-round gift ideas for beach lovers!

Are you team beach or team mountains? According to stats, most Americans prefer the beach but it’s a pretty close call! A few years ago, I would have sided with team mountains, but a trip to Hawaii + Micronesia in 2019 drastically changed my mind.

Two weeks in the beautiful Pacific made me fall in love with sunshine, gritty sand, and gusty ocean wind. And who knows? Perhaps a vacation to the Alps just might change my mind yet again; but for now, I’m team beach all the way.

Waikiki Beach is so amazing!

Sadly, I don’t live anywhere near the coast, which means I have to bring the beach to me. Anything that reminds me of the roar of the ocean, sand between my toes, or salty sea air is a win: clothing, jewelry, home decor, you name it!

I’m a huge fan of Jessica Carey swimsuits!

I scoured the internet for the best beach bags for moms. Here’s what I found:

This roomy straw tote by San Diego Hat Company, or this slightly more narrow version with lots of organizing compartments.

Beach-Inspired Jewelry

Coastal Home Accessories

When all else fails, bring the beach indoors, yes? Thoughtfully curated coastal home accessories literally usher in a breath of fresh air- very much like the seaside.

Sarah Flint’s breathtaking kitchen linens will brighten any breakfast or dining area. For a coastal look, opt for her “Maman Blue and White Ditsy Floral Cotton” print: table runner, 4-piece place mats, 4-piece dinner napkin set, and table cloths (round or rectangle).
