Ho, ho, ho! It's that time of the year again to get festive and shop for your loved ones, are you cracking your head on yet another year of Christmas shopping list?

When it comes to beach fashion apparel, there’s no such thing as abundance especially when you get to gear up for your next holiday getaway. Be it for Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, lover or friends, get tropical with this year's X'mas presents and here are our top suggestions for you:

1) Merry Sarongs
Bora Bora Floral Sarong in Lime Green
Embroidered Tie Dye Sarong in Red/Green
Embroidered Tie Dye Mens Sarong "Dark Green"
Abstract Top Quality Sarong in Red
Abstract Leaf Sarong in Green
We all know that the color red and green reminds us of that warm and loving Christmas season. Take your pick between our collection of red sarong or green sarong. These one piece fabrics are cool and practical because they are not only used for fashion style (dress,top,head wrap,skirt,etc) but also for home decoration (table cloth, blanket, curtain,etc)! PS: Don’t let the boys feel left out, do check out our men’s sarong collection.

2) Dresses for the Sun (and Moon?)
Womens Lined Long Dress - Halter - Bamboo White
Tropical Summer Sundress with Hand Painted Batik
Womens Hot Pink Long V-Neck Dress with Floral Design
Green Womens Sundress With Hand Painted Orchid Design
A reliable and comfortable dress is every woman’s need, wear it casually during the day or get fancy at night. Pick your favorite design from our dress collection and make sure your present is a right fit by referring to our size chart measurements!

3) Small and Meaningful Jewelry
Abstract Painted Wood Bangle in Burgundy
Beaded Ring in Mixed
Triple Bead String Necklace with Triple Round Wooden Pendant in White
They say that accessorizing is a way of expressing one's individuality and this is very true in the world of fashion. If you're thinking to get economical with little gifts, browse through our jewelry collection of earrings, necklaces, bangles, belts, rings, bracelet and more. And if you’re considering to get something unique, check out our Sarong ties.

4) Sparkle with Scarfs
Scarves with Gold Thread
Two Toned Silky Scarf in Blue
Elegant Silky Scarf in Purple
Solid Colored Gauze Scarves
Our all time favorite choice for both men or women because you can rarely go wrong with it! Be it for a cold winter or to jazz up your style, scarfs or shawls are probably one of the most traditional gifts that has been given for generations.

5) Mambo in a Poncho
Abstract Tiki Tunic Poncho Cover-Up with V-Neck in Browns
Purple Embroidered Tunic Poncho Cover-Up
Who says that ponchos can’t be cool? These babies are super comfy for everyday use and we're convinced that anyone who wears this would feel happy. Find something else that you might like from our beach cover up collection.

Be it at the beach or in the city, we hope that you have an amazing holiday season! Have fun shopping and don't forget to enjoy our Christmas Sale while you're at it!
