Holiday Gift Guide

The festive season is here, and while the weather has us wrapping up in layers instead of stripping down to our swimsuits, we’re already thinking about our next tropical escape, and planning next summer’s lake trips. 

When it’s snowing outside you might not think of gifting someone swimwear for Christmas (or asking for it!), but whether you’ve got a beach break coming up or you’re just dreaming on the summer, take a look through our gift guide for ideas or yourself, or your favourite #aquababeforever

We get it, gifting swimwear can be tricky, but with our easy to use size guide, and our expert knowledge just a call or an email away, you can buy with confidence. 

The gift of dressing it up

Versatile to wear and easy to pack, our bamboo maxi dresses make the perfect gift for friends who are never not on vacation. Made from wrinkle-free rayon bamboo, they’ve got beach chic covered, or fold down into a skirt and pair with a simple top for warm summer evenings in the city.

For the beach bum

Mix and match colours and styles from our collections of bikini tops and bottoms, for a fun and unique swimsuit combo. You’ll get top marks for innovative gift giving, and they’ll be beach ready for your next trip! 

The best towel you’ll ever gift

We love stocking local brand Tofino Towels, and they make a great gift for even the most difficult of friends to buy for. Their colours and patterns are bold yet sophisticated, and can be used for the beach or at home, all year round. 

If in doubt, accessorize

It’s hard to go wrong with gifting beach accessories, especially if your loved one has a vacation coming up. Choose from a huge range of Malvados Playa sandals in colours for every mood, or pick a pair of fun frames from Quay Australia - perfect for the style queen in your life. 

For a lifelong friendship

Still not sure what to get that extra special #aquababe this Christmas? BC locals can book a special private fitting session with us at our base on Vancouver Island. Take it next level by adding bubbly and snacks to your day, and treat yourselves to some perfectly fitting swimwear that you’ll want to wear all year round.
