With the summer seeming like a distance memory, we’re racing towards Christmas and whilst many of you may have started, finished and wrapped your Christmas shopping, you may be more like me and just started on that difficult task of choosing the perfect gifts for your friends and family!!!
Having hunted high and low for unique and handmade gifts for all three of our beach huts and having received some amazing gifts from friends and family which are in the huts or at home, its been a great excuse to combine my love of Christmas and Beach Huts into the below gift guide. If you do know someone who is a beach hut fan or lucky enough to own one, they will be counting down to spring days and being able to get down to their beach hut for a spring clean and the first signs of spring! That unique and personal gift will help get them through winter and start planning their décor for 2016 or a great addition to nautical/beach hut themed room.
We all know that those hints don’t always work so why not share the post with that ‘forgetful’ other half who is planning his Christmas Eve shopping dash, tag him on every social media site possible, and leave your browser open on this page (maybe even a post it note highlighting the ones you love!)…. they do need all the help they can get! Ok .. maybe share it a few times in the run up to Christmas… you can guarantee that way you won’t need to ask for the receipt.
Failing that.. pop back in January and you may have some luck in the sales (and leave some bigger hints for your next celebration!)
Gifts for Beach Hut Fans 2015
Perfect for a cloakroom or hallway for a beach hut fan who is looking to bring in some subtle hints into their home décor. Can be hung individually or perhaps purchase more than one to hang collectively (inspired by some previous guest pictures of their cloakroom – I have one now proudly hanging in our own downstairs cloakroom).
In a gorgeous range of colours, Sunjellies baskets are available in this retro basket style or totes (and in two sizes!). Just have a look at their Pinterest page to see that these baskets aren’t just brilliant to hold all your goodies for a day at the beach… they look just as good in the home too! Can I have Daisy please?
Perfect for children or those big kids in your life, you can rebuild this design into a summer shack with pool or summer cottage by the sea. Hours of fun.
The Jewellery Hut based on Mersea Island have a wonderful range of beach themed jewellery – we love this charm bracelet featuring a beach hut, starfish and crab.
Specialising in Eco Friendly Candles and Reed Diffusers lovingly and individually hand poured here on the Sussex coast, Billy’s Beach Hut diffusers and candles come in a wide range of scents and the presentation is stunning! You can order via their facebook page (whilst enviously checking out their stunning campervan too!).
If you have a holiday planned in Cornwall or need an excuse to plan one, Lusty Glaze Gift Vouchers come in £10, £20 and £50 denominations. Having stayed at their beach front cottage in October, I can’t rate highly enough. Valid for 12 months and you may find yourself dancing barefoot at a Sundowner Session to dinner overlooking the ocean – one of the best beach fixes you can buy.
Ace Illustrations is a unique collection of lively limited edition prints with each print numbered and signed by the artist Angus Crook. With many seaside based options, this is one of our favourites and you’ll spot this around our own home. You can personalise all prints with quotes and have them mounted and framed.
By Tinysilver Jewellery, this beach hut bangle is solid sterling silver and hand cut. Great for those who prefer a simpler but sophisticated style of jewellery.
From another of our favourite small businesses, Spotty Dog Design creates a wide range of ceramics. Her hanging plaques would be a great stocking filler and can be ordered in a range of colours and diff phrases.
Essex Soap Box handmade this Dead Sea salt foot scrub, enriched with jojoba and sweet almond oil. Fragranced with coconut and peppermint tea, perfect for those days when you can’t make it to the beach.
This statement light is a recent addition to my sewing room and can be propped on a shelf or mounted on a wall. I loved the fact you an power this via batteries or main connection (adaptor provided). Also available with colour lights and other metal colours available.
