Sheila's holiday gift guide: Summer's best picks

Posted on Tuesday, December 19, 2023

Your go-to guide for summer gift-giving & finding their next favourite fit.

As the festive season kicks into high gear, so does the quest for the perfect gifts. We get it; it can be stressful running through all the standard questions: 'What do they need? What will they like? What should I get?' But this summer, we’ve got you—and your gals—sorted for swimwear. Because this season, it’s all about gifts that delight, empower, and of course, last!

Our handy swimwear guide is here to give you a friendly nudge with the right questions, making sure your gift is spot-on. Here's what to think about before you hit 'add to cart’.

Nellie Scoop Bikini Top - Sheila

1. What’s their body type?

We’re all deliciously different: It’s what makes us such powerful Sheilas. However, comfort and fit are key to nailing your gifts this season. For example, if you're buying for a bestie with a fuller bust, we recommend the Nellie Women’s Scoop Bikini Top. Featuring integrated foam cups, adjustable straps, and a fully lined design, it's the quintessential summer gift. Pair it with the Miranda Long Swim Short for a supportive, stylish ensemble. Knowing their size, (perhaps by asking someone close to them), can help you buy the perfect fit.

2. Colour-lover or neutral fanatic?

Think hard: Does your giftee revel in bold colours or gravitate towards neutral classics? Whatever their preference, our colours are here to get you on their Nice List. For the neutral-lover, our Mina One-Piece in Black Sand is a go-to. Its sleek design, coupled with a waist-defining seam, strikes a balance between sophistication and practicality. And for those who love making bold statements? Our Mina One Piece returns, this time in Golden Hour hues, to create an unmissable and eye-catching look.

3. Now, let’s take a look at lifestyle. 

Know someone who cherishes their Strava account as much as their post-run stretch? First off, hats off to them. Secondly, we've got the perfect match. Our Ash Cropped Rash Vest is designed for ultimate comfort during those intense sweat sessions, and it's also equipped to shield from harmful UV rays. Featuring a shelf bra, integrated foam cups, and handy thumb holes, this piece is a sweat-lover’s dream. And, keeping in mind the importance of understanding body types, here's a heads-up: Our beloved Ash Cropped Rash Vest is perfectly suited for smaller bust sizes, ranging from A to D cup.

4. The ‘Impossible to Shop For’ guide

Everyone has that one friend who seems to 'need nothing' or is famously labelled as 'impossible to shop for.' Fear not, for we have just the solution. Our Sheila Logo Tee is a fail-safe option for even the pickiest of friends. Crafted from 100% cotton, it promises ultimate comfort with a relaxed fit, making it versatile for a variety of occasions. Whether it's for a leisurely brunch, a casual day at the beach, or their favourite workout session, this tee is bound to become their go-to garment. So, don’t be surprised if it quickly becomes their new staple.

Now that you’ve checked everything off your list, you're set to excel in the art of present-giving (it's not a competition, but if it were...). Whether they're sunbathing, sweating it out, chilling out, or racing around, these are the gifts that will leave them all wondering how you got so good at this?!
