Summer is the best time of the year for us island girls! I love going to the beach to swim, but only when the water’s warm… I guess because I lived in the Caribbean so long, my body just can't do COLD water.
So going into winter in North America is a tough time for most of you beachy island girls.... but don't you worry, if you are a part of "Our Island Family" facebook group, you will love how there is always an island girl summer happening somewhere. Sort of like Jimmy Buffet's "It's 5 O'clock somewhere" song.
Since USA is in the northern hemisphere and Australia is in the southern hemisphere, it is just an endless summer round here! Us Australian island girls will keep you American island girls warm with our summer pics and hope that you will do the same for us when the seasons change again. Here are some photos of some of our island friends enjoying the sunshine.
As you start to plan for your holiday celebrations, I thought I would help you out and share the top 6 gifts we have for beach lovers. Give a little summer sunshine to your loved ones with these fun beach-themed gift ideas! (Even if they can’t use them right away ..... they sure will be happy when Spring rolls around)
Here are my Top 6 suggested gifts for Beach Girls.... and they are all under $50.
Our number one suggested gift for your favourite beach girl is one of our pure cotton sarongs. You don't need to worry about what size they wear, as these sarongs are a generous one-size-fits-all, and they come adorably packaged for gift giving, with a bonus seaglass bracelet/anklet. Best part of all is that they double as a scarf for the winter months, keeping your neck surprisingly warm, and adding that touch of island color to your winter wardrobe. For only $25 this is a great stocking stuffer idea.

The number 2 best gift for an island girl who is land-locked for the whole winter season, is our deluxe new cotton beach (or shopping) bag. Featuring a sturdy handle, durable cotton canvas, adorable new prints, and a sweet fringe detail. This bag will hold your loved ones water bottles, phone, sarong, towel, wallet and well, pretty much everything! Who doesn't love a practical gift !
Best part yet is that most of them have a matching sarong too!
Your beach girl friends are going to LOVE this pure cotton cap that fits like a dream, and gives them that sun smart protection we all need, and the best part yet is that the fabric is natural pure cotton that actually breaths.... no more sweatiness under there!
Finally a cap that is made especially for an "island girl" .... we have your friends covered.... literally. This is the finishing touch to all of their beachwear outfits.
Looking for well priced but classy items to buy as stocking stuffers, you cannot go by the pure cotton head bands and scrunchies in all the wonderful bright colors of the islands.
A great gift for the younger island girls in your world, this pure cotton hair scrunchie is a basic elasticated hair tie, featuring all the prints and colors of our island collection.
Of course, being pure cotton they wont cause damage to fine hair either. At only $4 for scrunchies, and $6 for headbands.... you simply can't go wrong.
