To prove it, today I’ll be showing you ideas for 101 Seashell Gifts for Beach Lovers. Yes, you heard that right, one hundred one seashell gifts!

So, let’s jump into it!


1. Inflatable Seashell Oyster Raft

Okay, just how neat is this? Talk about your beach themes. This Inflatable Seashell Oyster Raft can take you floating out in the surf on a giant seashell! (or if you prefer to stick to the swimming pool, you can definitely use your imagination to envision that you are in the ocean). Also, the sparkling “hologram” finish looks a whole lot like the inside of a sparkly shell. Float away!

3. Sea Shell & Sea Horse iPhone Case

A true friend would never let you have a boring cell phone cover. After all, since the cell phone has become the center of modern life, the cell phone cover has become the foremost spot for self-expression. And if you have a friend who hasn’t figured that one out yet, you owe it to them to get them something as fantastic as this Sea Shell & Sea Horse iPhone Case.

I absolutely love the blue and gold theme to this artwork and really, how can you go wrong with sea horses? You can’t. If you’re looking for practical gifts for beach lovers, well, you can’t do better than this!

5. Sea Shell Wine Glasses (as gifts for beach lovers)

Sea Shell Wine Glasses

Who doesn’t like beautifully decorated wine glasses? And this set of Sea Shell Wine Glasses is definitely beautiful — a fantastic design of seashells resting on a layer of pale blue sand. I love the aqua-marine color theme there, which I think would work well with either reds or whites. Hmm. I’m picturing a nice Italian Pinot Grigio in there right now…

10. Sea Shells & Rope

Sea Shells & Rope

I’ve always liked seashell art that incorporates things that look fish-netty. Especially when it also incorporates a lot of shells! And I think that Sea Shells & Rope would make a great gift for anyone whose decorating taste has a nautical flair! Artist Laurette has used real palm fronds and real seashells collected from Panama City Beach in Florida and strung them all together with hemp string to create an awesome looking wall hanging that brings to mind a fishing net which has just landed a colorfol catch.

11. Seashell Dog Collar

These days everyone takes their dogs to the beach. So doesn’t Fido deserve his own beach-themed apparel? Of course he does. And even at those times when he can’t make it to the beach, he still deserves to be reminded of it with a Seashell Dog Collar, doesn’t he? Of course he does. He’s a good dog, after all.

12. Starfish and Seashell Tropical Beach Theme Bath Towel

Wow, check out the starfish on that towel! Everyone needs towels, so why not give the gift of towels… especially when those towels evoke the kind of reaction that you’re likely to get from Starfish and Seashell Tropical Beach Theme Bath Towel. I know that it amazes me that such fantastic artwork can be put on a towel, so I’m pretty sure it will impress others as well — one of those great gifts for beach lovers!

Remind them that when their day off comes, the beach will be waiting for them.

14. Seashell License Plate Frame

Honk if you love the beach! Okay, this Seashell License Plate Frame doesn’t technically say that, but it most definitely says that. I love the artwork they’ve used here. It’s such a nice, peaceful little mural of purple shells. I may have to go buy another car just so that I have another place to put this frame!

15. Mermaid Seashell Bikini T-Shirt

Most of us are a little too modest for a seashell bikini. But a Mermaid Seashell Bikini T-shirt? Bring it on! I love the cut of this shirt and having those shells there makes for a great fashion statement. And purple! I think I mentioned once or twice that I’m a fan of purple. So, a purple mermaid bikini is just aces with me!

(I’ve got a whole page on this site that can help you embrace your inner mermaid)

16. Sandy Beach Mesh Cap

Your friends can take the beach with them everywhere they go if you give them each one of these Sandy Beach Mesh Caps. I love that they’ve got this great little scene of sand, shells and starfish printed right on the front. How much fun is that?

Seashell Chocolate Lollipop

We all have a chocoholic or two in our lives, don’t we? (My husband is definitely one) and I can think of no better gift for the chocolate lover than these Seashell Chocolate Lollipops.

19. Starfish Journal

Starfish Journal

Dear Diary: today my best friend got me a Starfish Journal that was personalized with my name on the cover. I love my new little journal and I plan to use it to write down all of our fun beach adventures. Sure, I’ll still post my photos on Instagram, but all of the really good stuff will just go in here, in my new favorite journal given to me by my new favorite friend!

20. Seashell Beach Night Light

Seashell Beach Night Light

Let’s face it: everybody needs a night light every now and then, right? We’ve all got that certain room, or corner or dark top of the staircase that needs some illumination late at night. Artist Sara has gathered shells from the beaches of Florida and New England and hand-makes these night light frames which are then glazed and fired (which means that they won’t yellow of fade). So instead of a boring, generic night light, your friends and family can have a one-of-a-kind piece of art lighting their way as they stumble for the bathroom in the middle of the night.

21. Starfish Fleece Throw Blanket

Starfish Fleece Throw Blanket

Remind them of their time at the beach even when they’ve come back from their time at the beach with this wonderful Starfish Fleece Throw Blanket. I love that not only does this one feature a really amazing scene of starfish and shells, the blanket itself is super soft! That way, even when they’re far away from the beach, the owner of this blanket could snuggle up with a loved one before the fireplace and remember the beach.

22. Sea Shells with Heart

Sea Shells with Heart

Giving someone your heart will always be the ultimate gift. After you do that, give them something heart-shaped so they know it! I love the clever use of the rope to make the outline of the heart (and I can think of a few people who would love to receive this one). Artist Stephanie fills that heart-shaped space with some amazing shells. And the really unique part that I see is the sand! I love how she’s used the sand in the background. What a perfect way to tell someone they have your heart!

23. Seashell Flip-Flop Socks

Until I saw these Seashell Flip-Flop Socks I wasn’t even aware that there were such things as flip-flop socks. I always thought that the point of wearing flip-flops was to set your feet free. But then I remembered that in many areas, including the West Coast where we live, the temperature drops quite a bit when the sun goes down, and if you happened to be caught wearing your flip-flops at that time, then a pair of socks with a little indentation for your big toe would come in mighty handy. And if you were using those handy flip-flop socks, then of course they should have a seashell theme. Of course!

24. Sea Shell Cellars 2017 Wine Collection

It should come as no surprise that there would be a winery that would use shells as their motif. After all, the beach and wine go together like… well… I can’t think of anything that goes together better than the beach and wine. So grab yourself something from the Sea Shell Cellars 2017 Wine Collection and be prepared for that next beach outing with friends!

25. Sea Shell Magnets

Sea Shell Magnets

I don’t care who you are, where you live, what you do for a living — everyone sticks things to the refrigerator. Therefore everyone needs fridge magnets. Help your friends and family lend a beach them to their kitchens with these Sea Shell Magnets.

26. Under the Sea Birthday Cookies

Under the Sea Birthday Cookies

Yummy! These Under the Sea Birthday Cookies make great gifts for any occasion. Not just birthdays (although, what an awesome addition to any birthday party these would be!). I love that they’ve colored these chocolate-covered pretzels this great aquatic color (really, how do you get chocolate to be blue???) and then they top it off with a great chocolate seashell. A perfect addition to any beach-themed gathering!

27. Sea-Themed Face Mask

Sea-Themed Face Mask

Obviously the demand for face masks has skyrocketed of late. But why give someone a plain, boring face mask? Not when you can give them a beautiful Sea-Themed Face Mask. Hailing from the seaside town of Santa Barbara, artist Cari Summer is a seasoned sea glass artist. During the pandemic, she’s turned her artistic eye and love of the beach to making these beautiful face masks. Surprise your beach lover with one!

28. Mini Seashells Bottle Necklace

Mini Seashells Bottle Necklace

What a cute little gift a Mini Seashells Bottle Necklace would make. I can easily see this as being one of the bridesmaid’s gifts for a beach-themed wedding. Can’t you? I love the tiny little bottles filled with tiny little shells. These are just the cutest. And the perfect thing to remember some time at the beach, whether we’re talking a wedding, or we’re talking a romance, or… just a beautiful day!

29. Purple Starfish Tote Bag

Purple Starfish Tote Bag

If you’ve got a friend or family member who lugs all of their beach stuff out to the sand in a big plastic Walmart bag, do them a favor and get them this Purple Starfish Tote Bag. This is an absolutely perfect item for carrying those beach items like beach-read books, or sunscreen… or maybe even a little wine in a sippy cup (I won’t tell!). The starfish theme really makes this bag great, and if you’ve read any of the other pages here on Seashell Madness it’s a pretty good bet that you’ve heard me say how much I like purple. So purple starfish? Yes, please!

30. Seashell Coasters

Seashell Coasters

These beautiful coasters are handmade and they definitely make for great gifts. Artist Sarah Watts actually specializes in coasters. Each set that she handmakes takes her about 2 days. And that attention to quality and detail really makes a difference. Just look at these things. So beautiful, but also water-resistant so that you absolutely can place your drinks on them (though you may also end up holding your drink in your hand as you admire these beautiful pieces of art). Either way: terrific gift!

31. Sea Glass & Shells Suncatcher Window

Sea Glass & Shells Suncatcher Window

Who doesn’t like a sparkly present? Really, who? I can’t think of anyone. And this Sea Glass & Shell Shells Suncatcher Window is pretty darned sparkly (which makes it a great gift for beach lovers). Artist Cathy Michael achieves that sparkliness by the addition of crushed glass to the seashells, then it is all sealed in resin. This is great not only because it keeps whoever you give this to from getting cut on glass, it also gives this piece a feeling of liquidity. It’s like when the receding waves leave a thin layer of water on the sand — and that water is full of shells and sparkles. I know I would love to receive this as a gift!

32. Driftwood & Barnacles Picture Frame

Driftwood & Barnacles Picture Frame

There’s something about art made from driftwood that makes a great statement — and a great gift! Driftwood has been tossed around by the sea for a while, curving off the sharp edges and giving each twig and branch character. Which makes driftwood art a perfect present for someone who also has character!. Each of these picture frames is handmade by artist Lynette with small driftwood pieces and shells. Each one is unique… and perfect for that unique person in your life.

33. Starfish Flower Girl Hair Clip

These just have to be the cutest things that you could find for a flower girl. Especially at a beach wedding (though, heck, they’d be great for any wedding, wouldn’t they?). Not only do they look great, they help to keep that “wedding hair” from coming uncoiled before she has the chance to coat the aisle in rose petals.
