Last year I published a gift guide for travellers to help those looking to buy the special traveller in their life something they would love and appreciate. This year I knew I wanted to do something of the same nature again, but I’ve found that the same items appear on every single gift guide for travellers out there.
Inspired by the current lack of warmth and sunshine in Canada, I decided to change it up a little bit and publish a gift guide dedicated to that special beach bum in your life. If you’re looking for a perfect gift for that someone in your life who loves the ocean (maybe more than they love you) then look no further! I’m happy to present my 2016 Christmas Gift Guide: Beach Bum Edition.

There’s nothing that beach bums love more than maintaining their sun kissed glow year round. Give the gift of bronzed skin this year with my favourite self tanning mouse: Loving Tan. This Australian brand trumps any other self tanning product I’ve ever used. There formula is by far the easiest to blend and has the nicest colour pay off. My favourite product is the 2 hour express in dark.

Beachy Waves in an Instant
The only good thing about getting out of the ocean is what the ocean salt does to your hair after it dries. If you’re like me and not lucky enough to live near an ocean, achieving these authentic beauty waves is incredibly difficult. However, after a lot of searching a lot of wasted money, I’ve finally found the perfect product to give me the best beauty waves. Ouai wave spray creates the most long lasting, crunch free waves in my hair that look like I just came from the beach!
A statement beach towel
While I’m all for sandy cheeks, sometimes a girl needs a soft place to tan on (and to take cute insta pics with!) Sand Cloud beach towels are not only incredibly cute, but they support an amazing cause that Airplanes and Avocados is very passionate about. 10% of all Sand Cloud sales go towards protecting marine life.

Pineapple Piggy Bank
I am a sucker for anything pineapple related and for home decor, so this is one of my favourite items on this list. Pick up this little guy to spruce up a room and help your beach bum save for their next tropical getaway in style!

Beach Fragrance Set
Bobbi Brown’s “beach” is my absolute favourite scent of all time. The light and fresh fragrance smells exactly like the beach and with a couple of spritz I’m transported right back to my favourite place. This set is exclusive for the holidays and comes with the perfume, body scrub, body lotion, and shower gel.
