Christmas is only a couple weeks away! Have you gotten all your gifts yet? If you need a last minute gift or an idea for a future special occasion, we have some suggestions that are sure to make someone’s day. Things are nice but you can’t keep them forever. We are going to go over some great Bald Head Island activities that anyone can enjoy because the memories are what really last.
Many of us love sea turtles and it’s always a treat to see them in the wild. But sea turtles are at risk from many factors. Did you know you can adopt a nest through Bald Head Island Conservancy? You can also do this as a gift for someone else! The adoptive parent’s name will be on the nest cage and they can be inside the ropes for the excavation when hatchlings make it to sea. You can also adopt a mom where you get to be part of ALL the next excavations by your adopted turtle mom. How exciting is that!
The Sail Shop offers sailing experiences for any skill level. Obviously, it’s a little chilly for this now but you can give the gift for a later (warmer) time. Sailing around the gorgeous Bald Head Island would be an unforgettable experience. Instructors can take you for a tour of the Cape Fear River and along South Beach for beautiful island views. For the more adventurous person, kiteboarding lessons are available with Coastal Urge. Learn board skills and riding techniques with customized coaching.
We know the most important part of giving is the thought behind it so you don’t have to be extravagant to be a good giver. Why not take your partner or whole family to the beach for a nice picnic by the shore? Maritime Market can customize take-out meals or you can grab some snacks and a blanket and head out. Spending some time in nature without the whole crew on their phones or in their own world is such a simple but pleasant thing to do together.
Of course, a Bald Head Island vacation would be an ideal gift for anyone on your list. You get to enjoy it with them, too! Beautiful beach homes with expansive decks and breathtaking views are just a few clicks away. If you have been to the island before, turn those memories into a great gift with a DIY project of pictures or souvenirs. Get some ideas from our blog on “How to Preserve your Bald Head Island Vacation Memories”.
The holiday season does come with gift-giving but it’s also about enjoying your time with friends and family. So try not to stress and make sure to appreciate the little things as well. Maybe we’ll see you soon on Bald Head Island!
