Last-Minute Holiday Gifts from the Beach
It may not be possible to wrap Alabama's white-sand beaches and leave it under the Christmas tree, but if you have a beach lover in your life we have some fun ideas for giving the gift of beach this holiday season.
1. Send your gift recipient a t-shirt from their favorite Gulf Shores or Orange Beach restaurant. Many restaurants sell their shirts on their websites, so it's easy to click or tap your way to a big “thank you” from your giftee.
3. An Orange Beach charter fishing trip for the angler in your life will score you points that'll last all year. If a winter fishing trip isn't for them, you can purchase a gift certificate from their favorite charter boat captain.
4. Give a gift that'll remind your recipient of the beach all year long. Coastal artisans offer an array of hand-made creations, including blown glass ornaments at The Hot Shop and other custom pieces at studios throughout Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
Of course, the best gift of all is a beach vacation. Get creative and fill a sand bucket with all the essentials like attraction gift cards, sunscreen, beach towels, condo reservation confirmation and other items that shout “We're Going on Vacation!”
