Springtime—and, of course spring break for students—is right around the corner, and you can count on many families and vacationers of all sorts coming into town for some time off. For many visitors, this is their first taste of warmth, sun and sand since last summer—and they’ll want to enjoy the beach or pool as much as possible! As a gift shop owner, this means stocking up on the essentials they need to enjoy their springtime trip.
Below, we will be looking at a few of the must-have items every resort gift shop owner should have on hand in time for the springtime rush.
One of the number one things your customers will be looking for this season is sun protection. Be sure to stock up on the lotions, sprays and oils they’ll be asking for over the next few months. (Of course, here in Florida sunscreen is always a practical staple item—but it never hurts to check your inventory and add more when necessary!)
With our pristine beaches and crystal clear resort pools, your customers will need a great swimsuit or two to fully enjoy it all. Be sure to have some ready for them come spring break!
The right hat can instantly cool down an overheated beachgoer, so have a few options on hand for guests to choose from. In addition to the basic baseball cap, consider stocking up on visors and women’s sun hats, too.
Warm weather clothes
With the change of season, you can expect temperatures to warm up even more than they already have. This means offering a variety of cool and comfy warm weather clothes for your guests to enjoy during their stay both on and off the beach.
As we’ve mentioned above, warmer weather is upon us—so give your guests a chance to cool off with a few convenient items. Handheld, battery-powered fans (including some that spray a cool mist when in use) are perfect for cooling off after a long day at the beach.
In addition to cooling off their body in the Florida heat, your guests will want something to quench their thirst, too. Be sure to have plenty of water, juices and popular sodas on hand to keep guests hydrated during their stay.
Don’t forget about the actual gear your guests will want to use at the beach! In the hopes of packing light, many might elect to leave their beach bags, toys and thick towels at home—so be sure to carry these items and more, especially if you’re near the beach! Your customers will thank you.
