As far as I’m concerned, it is far better to give than to receive. And the only gifts worth giving are well thought out and come from the heart. They can be simple or grand, handmade or store bought, a card or a hug. The gift of an experience can create memories to last a lifetime. If you’re planning a trip to the tropics over the holidays or in the New Year, consider the gift of a Fury excursion for you and that special someone. While you’re at it, swing into the Surf Shack to find something for the beach bunnies and surfer dudes on your list. Here’s what’s hot for the holidays from the Fury Surf Shack:
As the first winter cold fronts blow through the Keys, temperatures have dipped into the mid-60s and lower 70s (I know, feel sorry for us!). The boys have been bundling up in soft, fleece-lined hoodies as toppers for their board shorts. Quiksilver and Hurley have some great selections in the Surf Shack perfect for wintertime at the beach.
For that special dude in your life, give the gift of time with a Freestyle wristwatch. There’s something for every personality, whether your guy is classic, funky, or looking to make a statement. These sporty timepieces are certain to turn heads on the boat or on the beach.
Nineties grunge is back in a major way with a modern twist on flirty plaids and flannels, and the Surf Shack is fully stocked. Check out this shimmering plaid cocktail dress by Roxy perfect for a punk rock chick’s holiday party. Wear your plaid like a boyfriend shirt in a RVCA button down for a tough, yet sweet winter look.
Glam up your girl’s flip-flop collection with some strappy Reefs. Their line of glittery and metallic sandals is the most laid back way to dress up for the holidays. Beach chic has never looked so chic!
For the Kiddies
Nothing says a family day at the beach like a bucket full of sand toys. Swing by the kid’s store to stock up on everything your family needs, from paddleball to floats to tools for the perfect sand castle. Warm up at night with adorable Reef house slippers made especially for your tiny tot.
