A Mermaid’s Guide To Holiday Gift Giving

Holiday shopping can be exhausting and I must admit it is NOT high on my list of enjoyable experiences.  Crowded malls and running around like a chicken with my head cut off for hours on end just overstimulates and wears me out. I’ve turned to online shopping for that very reason, as I can browse in the comfort of my own home without the stress, while supporting small businesses and saving loads of time.  Read on for my picks of some unique and affordable gifts for the mermaids in our lives.

Sand + Sol Candles – @sandansol_ on Instagram

My daughter and I are huge candle lovers and we are always looking for new scents to enjoy. They evoke such a relaxing, dreamy mood and these Sand + Sol Candles are made of all-natural soy wax and come in luscious aromas, such as Tequila + Lime, Fresh Melon, Island Getaway, and Sea Breeze.  Bring the scent of the islands home this holiday season, no matter what the weather.  At $9.99 per 6 0z candle, I plan on snagging a few for stocking stuffers.

Spinning Glory Pottery – @spinning.glory on instagram

Looking for a truly unique gift for the mermaid in your life?  Spinning Glory mugs are stunning works of art crafted with materials such as 22k gold, shells, and hand-painted designs. They are personalized for each client so be assured no one else will ever have the same piece.  Prices vary depending on the individual embellishments you choose. I fell in love with the one below.

Cheers Beaches Products  – @cheersbeaches on Instagram

Think floppy sun hats, tropical sunnies, tees, and tumblers, all embellished with the Cheers Beaches logo.  They are all the rage and will ensure you are the most fashionable, “beachin” babe out there.

Rock And Sea Designs Jewelry – @rockandseadesigns on Instagram or www.rockandseadesigns.com Etsy shop

Looking for the perfect gift for the Boho babe in your life? Look no further than these “Caribbean Sunset ” earrings.  Priced at $24, these lovely dangles are a steal and will transform anyone into an island girl.  I plan on buying them for myself this Christmas (self care baby!).  Check out this Atlanta jewelry designer’s other beachy jewels too!

Kenny Flowers Clothing – @kennyflowers_ on Instagram

Want to embrace that vacation feeling everyday? Kenny Flowers beach wraps, kimonos, and unisex shirts in funky tropical prints will have you smiling all the way to the beach.  He’s having his biggest sale of the year right now, with 20% off orders of $75, so check him out on instagram and channel your inner beach!  My wrap below was $35 and it’s great for paddle boarding, ocean strolls, or cocktails by the bay.

Ocean Minded Jewelry – @oceanmindedjewelry on Instagram or oceanmindedjewelry.etsy.com

The artist behind Ocean Minded Jewelry was born in California and lives in Florida. She creates all the pieces herself, encouraging the wearer to live in an ocean state of mind …every single day. Many of the pieces are made with shells and inscribed with affirming messages.  I purchased the Mandala Bracelet below and love it!

Grecian Sandals – @greciansandals on Instagram 

I love Greek sandals…they add bohemian flair to every outfit, they’re comfortable, and they come in a variety of styles and colors. You must check out these handmade sandals that ship straight from Athens….and I don’t mean NY. They are stunning and so versatile. If a mermaid must wear shoes these are the ticket…and they’re on sale!

D U S H I Apparel & Clothing – @dushidesigns on Instagram

Featuring beach-themed tropical prints and gorgeous beach towels designed to stand out, Aruba-based Dushi Designs will whisk you away to the islands in style.  I’ve got my mind on the colorful roundie below and it’s 50% off today so I’m off to shop!
