This holiday season, I’m creating all the classic gift guides y’all want to see like my Gift Guide: For Her and my Under $50 Gift Guide: For the Hostess but I’m also excited to share more unique gift guides with y’all. Enter today’s gift guide, my Gift Guide: for the Girl Heading to the Beach for the Holidays! I find that during the holidays, people do one of three things: enjoy a cozy holiday at home, travel to the snow, or travel to the beach.
So, I’m sharing all my top gift ideas for those jet setting to the sun, surf, and sand starting with my favorite dresses to wear and gift + a guide to everything I’d style with the dresses. Not only is my little white dress perfect for a winter beach getaway but it fits right into Charleston or any other non-freezing city on a 70 degree winter day!
Edwin and I are off to Los Angeles for part of our Christmas trip to celebrate with his family, which is part of the inspiration for this post! I still want to dress festive even though the weather in LA will be quite pleasant so I thought a chic winter white dress was just the ticket! I’ll be packing this adorable dress in my suitcase… it also comes in pink and white gingham and navy and white dots. In addition to California, this gift guide applies to everyone shopping for someone heading to the Caribbean, Florida, Mexico, or Hawaii.
Wouldn’t this dress be the perfect present for those lucky travelers!?
It’s designed by my go-to dress brand, Persifor! I rounded up all my other favorite resort ready dresses (+ a few tops) for y’all below. Most are so versatile that they don’t even require a beach (like my dress!).
I accessorized my dress with a straw tote (sold out – similar), espadrilles, and statement earrings (old – similar). This is my go-to recipe for a perfect resort or warm weather look! I rounded up these must-haves for your special beach-bound someone for you here (+ lots more below!):
Here’s my advice:
If you’re hoping to create the perfect gift for someone off to the beach or if you yourself are looking for a knockout outfit for a warm-weather trip of your own, then snag a resort ready Persifor dress and pair it with my top beachy accessories. Yup, keep reading for a full Gift Guide: for the Girl Heading to the Beach for the Holidays roundup!

Now that I’ve shared with y’all what I would be packing this holiday season for a beach vacation (aka what I’m bringing to Los Angeles!) and shared the dresses I am gifting to the ladies in my life who are off to the beach for Christmas and/or New Years, it’s time to share the rest of my Gift Guide: for the Girl Heading to the Beach for the Holidays.
Below, you’ll find everything I recommend styling with a Persifor dress! If you’re like me and gifting Persifor pieces this season, then you’ll love all of the below items because they make a great addition to the gift! I love a great themed gift because 1) it’s fun to put together 2) it shows you put thought into your present 3) it shows you know the person you are gifting well! Dive in and enjoy your beach vacations if you’re going on one this winter!
But wait, there’s more:
