Finding the perfect gift for your ocean adoring loved ones can be hard. Don't panic, we've got your backs with this selection of surf goodies, sure to please every surfer woman.

Salt Gypsy Longboard - The Dusty

The quickest way to a surfer girls heart is to gift her a surfboard. It's the ultimate present and we think the Salt Gypsy 'Dusty' longboard is a pretty decent offering. Check out the board's stats and we are sure you will agree that this board would be an epic present:

Size Options: 8'0 | 8'6 | 9'0

The Dusty is by no means a performance Longboard, this board is about getting onto waves really early, setting the line, and then feeling the trim as you cruise down the line.

Optimum conditions are small to medium size waves, and it will really feel at home on a long point wave.

What girl doesn't like receiving jewellery?

If you want to gift jewellery it can't be any old thing.

Trust us when we tell you that water women will appreciate your eye for detail in selecting Océan Bohème jewelry.

This is because these gems aren't your average ocean jewels. They are made from sterling silver that can be worn in the ocean.

The handmade small batch jewellery is of high quality and made to last.

They combine gorgeous semi precious gemstones, the hues of the ocean and combine the gems with seaglass and upcycled shells.

Not only do you get beautiful adornments but the silver is recycled, the shells are from post consumer goods, they come in plastic free packaging and a coral is planted for every purchase.

Beach Rinse - Seaglass Mini Soaps

seaglass mini surf soaps

It wouldn't be Christmas without receiving some toiletries. However these are a definite step up from your Great Aunt Maud's lavender hand cream. These hair, body & bath products make you feel fresh out the ocean. Designed by Arica, a mom of 4, born and raised in San Diego, and now living at the foot of the mountains in Utah. She made Beach Rinse to recreate that feeling the ocean gives you on your skin, and what it does for hair turned into a total bonus!

Beach Rinse is a soak, scrub, and rinse for your hair, body, and bath. It's made using only 100% natural and organic ingredients.

It's a combo of the very things we love about the ocean.. salt, kelp, and oils.

Alongside her Beach Rinse range we fell in love with her Tropical Mandarin & Almond Mini Soaps.

A perfect Christmas gift for beachcombers. They are sea glass, mini soaps. The cutest soaps resembling seaglass found on the beach! Each batch is made with all-natural ingredients, handmade and they smell like paradise too. 

Grab a shell dish, and stash a little pile next to your sink.

$16.50 for their small jar of the sea glass soaps. Go browse their seaglass soaps and other ocean ranges here: Beach Rinse
