When I was growing up, every year at Christmas we’d get new swimmers and at least one new beach towel. There’s nothing better than a colourful new speedo when you spend at least 6 hours a day in the pool or at the beach as a kid. And how quickly your towel resembles a piece of cardboard from all the sea salt!
Beach gear can make a great present for both kids and adults. Check out Kmart, Target and Big W’s beach gear ranges for great deals or head to Country Road, Cotton On and Rebel Sport for even more beach goodies at a range of prices. From soccer beach balls to beautiful beach towels, sun shades and surfing magazine subscriptions, today’s moodboards include a selection of gift ideas for a summer Christmas.
