Best beach gear gift ideas

As sun-worshipping Floridians, we are always on the lookout for ways to improve our beach experience. There is no end to the quest, as this list of our favorites for best beach gear gift ideas will attest.

Sun Ninja Pop Up Beach Shelter

This Sun Ninja Pop-up canopy/shelter may be best idea yet for sheltering out of the hot Florida sun, a lightweight combination of beach umbrella and canopy. Though not 100% windproof, it goes with the flow. Easy set-up, and the corners anchor with beach sand. We agree with this Amazon reviewer: “Its very light and easy to carry to the beach, and exceeded my expectations for ease of set up and how it held up in windy conditions.” Comes in four colors and two sizes: 7.7 feet by 7.7 feet; 10 feet by 10 feet.
