MANZANITA OREGON IN A JAR! Blue mason jars filled with REAL local sand and a few REAL local sea pieces -shells and rocks- then topped with a cap. (Even get a small vial to seal sea water inside and drop inside).
Seashell Sand Jars: Shells work wonders for plain jars. Fill jars with sand, then wrap raffia or twine around the jar tops. Tuck in starfish and tie on sand dollars, shells, and other various beach treasures.
