20 Gorgeous Gifts for a Beach Hut fan


Gift GuideWith 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!)
