12 Days of Christmas | Days 1-4 By Yours Truly

12 Days of Christmas | Days 1-4 By Yours Truly

Santa Baby, I forgot to mention one little thing… I’m going to need some bathing suits. Yes, really. 


Better yet, this year I’m going to gift some bathing suits. Because even in a winter wonderland, we can still daydream about sunshine and surf (and hot tubs).


This holiday season, don’t shy away from giving the gift of a good time at the beach. You’ve probably already seen each of these items on our 12 Days of Christmas Instagram posts, but it bears repeating because each one of these pieces offers the fit, function, and style that is sure to bring joy this holiday season. 

Duck Dive Onesie - Steamboat Stripes

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... (Just kidding, he did not. My husband has officially never gotten me any kind of swimwear for Christmas, which I think is a real miss on his part. Hopefully this year he can remedy his previous missteps)... anyway, on the first day of Christmas, my true love should have given me the Duckdive Onesie in Steamboat Stripe. This long-sleeve one piece is the perfect midpoint between a one-piece bathing suit and spring suit wetsuit. Wear it over your swimsuit for warmth and comfort. Our Land-to-Sea fabric will keep you warm when the water is chilly. This gift pairs perfectly with a stand-up paddleboard (just an FYI).

Dahlia One Piece - Strata Stripe

Once you take a look at the Dahlia Onepiece in Strata Stripe, you’ll understand why I think your true love should be gifting swimwear. The V-neck styling in the front coupled with the t-back and adjustable crisscross straps in the back make this suit not only flattering and functional, but also a little sexy.

Cruz Rashguard - Winslow

Now, my husband can rest easy on this third item because it’s already one of my go-to favorites: The Cruz Rashguard. However, I’m definitely putting this one on my list shopping list for a Secret Santa because it’s practical, comfortable, and super cute! This rashguard offers lightweight sun protection, while the long sleeves and zip neck provide an extra layer of warmth on a cool or windy day. This pairs really well over top the Dahlia one piece or even as a long sleeve layer over a tank and leggings.

Sanitas Top, Sanitas Bottom - Water Shimmer

Finally, if you’re looking to get or give a two-piece bathing suit this year, look no further than the Sanitas Top and Bottom in Morgan Water Shimmer (sold separately). Previously, I’ve confessed that I’m somewhat of a clothing maximalist, and it probably goes without saying that I have many Sanitas Reversible Tops (Five. Okay, I have five), but they really are one of the most comfortable, flattering, functional bathing suit tops out there. Wear the Sanitas Top to the pool, the beach, hot yoga, or even a spin class. This medium support top is a go-to for so many activities and because it’s reversible you’re basically getting two tops in one. The medium-rise Sanitas Bottom is one of our best-sellers for a reason - I love it, you’ll love it, and you can count on it to be a great gift.
