Put the Oregon Coast Beneath Your Christmas Tree

Published 11//25/2011

(Oregon Coast) – Black Friday is now a brutal blood sport. Cyber Monday is so 2010. Luckily, for those who live in Oregon, the coast is available for a relaxed, laidback shopping experience. Few things beat that feeling of picking out gifts with the faint roar of the ocean not too far away, perusing the charming indie shops at spots like Cannon Beach, Newport's Nye Beach, Yachats, Seaside, Lincoln City, Depoe Bay or Manzanita.

But for those not necessarily able to get to the beaches, a really innovative gift idea would be actually giving the Oregon coast. Just about every shop, restaurant and lodging on the coast offers gift certificates, and these can be ordered from their websites or over the phone. Beyond that, many of the attractions also offer these as well, meaning you can get your special someone a trip to the Seaside Aquarium or a helicopter ride above the beaches.

The Oregon Coast Gift Certificate Guide (click here or look below) offers plenty of options to these, and to links that provide even more possibilities. After all, finding a gift certificate for some prime coastal experience in your holiday stocking beats finding a handful of sand any day.
