When you’re a beach bum, Christmas presents are nothing but trouble. Giving them is out of the question, since your pockets — assuming your swim trunks have pockets — are empty. Receiving gifts is no easier. You have no address, so they can’t be sent to you. And given the unhygienic state of your person, meeting gift-givers in person is a less than congenial experience for all concerned.
But for those of you with spare change and soap, we’ve rounded up some gift-giving guides from reputable publications. By some odd coincidence, they all mention a book called Beachbum Berry Remixed. Barlife UK and the Houston Press seem favorably inclined toward this particular volume as well. It’s a Christmas miracle!
