This Holiday Season, as we do every year, we like to celebrate all the unique gifts that bring smiles to faces and makes it very easy to bring joy to many people! Here are some of our suggestions, thought we’d have difficulty coming up with a Top 10 of sorts….once we got started, it was incredibly difficult to stop!
Shop local, support local!
1) Rossignol Surf Shop
For the Surfer, or want to be surfer, Jeff Norman has boards, suits, winter mitts and boots, winter wax, leashes and more available from the Shop - think I even saw some skateboard gear too! All are great Xmas ideas.

3) Ocean Spa – temporary location
Give the gift of relaxation and pampering…a massage! Our Massage Therapists who have been displaced since our fire, are in the process of setting up a temporary Spa at Lane’s Privateer Inn. More details are coming, but Kristine, Dorthea and the others are looking forward to seeing bookings from some old friends and new ones in 2012.
