Quick, open up this frequency-shaped sea noise generator in a new tab. Not only is it soothing and fully customizable, it's perfect for drowning out everyday background noises and distractions. Close your eyes and let the gentle waves carry you away.

2. Wear a beach-scented perfume.


A fragrance that smells like you just came home from the beach? Who would've thought! This perfume blends notes of sunscreen with "a bit of Wet Sand, Seashell, Driftwood and just a hint of Boardwalk" for that fresh-from-the-ocean feeling.

You don't need swimming lessons to use a nail and hammer. These distressed metal signs are handcrafted using 20-gauge steel, with the words baked into the surface for a long-lasting finish. Goes well with those deep-sea trawl nets. What a catch!

4. Wear a shark tooth necklace.

Hey, not all shark tooth necklaces look like the one your brother wore 10 years ago. Some are surprisingly elegant, like this one — a small shark tooth gilded in gold and sterling silver and held by a gold chain. It's so pretty, you may want to wear it all year!

When you're not straining to hear the ocean through them, shells offer a fun and unique way to decorate a room. You can even make a garland like this yourself with just some rope and patience scouring the beach, but it's totally worth it.

6. Bring in the starfish.

Seashells aren't the only thing you'll find if you're a diligent beachcomber. These little guys, called sugar starfish, make a great addition to any sunroom, and they sure beat your mom's potpourri. A bunch of these are sure to lift the mood if you're landlocked.

Nothing hits the spot better than a couple of hot dogs on the boardwalk. Head to the grocery store to pick up all the fillings you passed on at the food truck and then go home to grill the perfect, overloaded coney you've been dreaming of all summer.

8. Kick your bare feet up.

One of the best parts about summer is going barefoot, especially at the beach. Take that feeling home by abstaining from the old socks-and-shoes combo. Kick your feet up on the couch while you surf the web — it's likely the best thing next to surfing IRL.

Beaches aren't the only places that have sand, you know. Pack up your book and sun hat, because you're going to where there are no tourists: the sandbox! Go on, build a sandcastle, we guarantee the tide won't destroy it. Now toddlers, on the other hand...

10. Make your own sea salt hair spray.
