Coastal Summer Vibes

Summer is upon us and there is nothing like getting in the mood! Think breton stripes, salty sea air, lollies, surfing, sand between your toes and fish and chips. All you need now is the conch to your ear and you will be able to hear the sea!!

To help you get in the mood and achieve your own coastal vibe we have just a few things on our site that might help.

Carry away all your troubles and be stylish and practical with one of our gorgeous recyleced sail cloth bags. They really are f a b u l o u s.  Very durable and perfect for the beach, travel, gym, shops etc.   Sporty types both young and old love them for there capacity to hold so much.  Personal favourite of mine and with teenagers too is the holdall!  Just add adventure!

5 Things We Love This Summer

Don’t want to hex it, but who hasn’t been loving the sun we have been having! It has propelled us forward, thinking of lazy beach days, long warm evenings and outdoor antics!

Here at presentlocker.com we have kicked off our flip flops and lazed back on our sumptuous hammock and picked 5 things we love this summer from our collection.

1. Union Stripe Hammock

This hammock is divine, so comfy,  and what better way to relax in the glorious sunshine.  Its in a patriotic red white and blue with an empire feel.   Infact, I will go so far as to say that it will probably be the most popular thing you buy this summer!
