Build sand castles at your desk
Your boss may not like it, but this miniature desktop sandbox delivers all the fun of a day at the beach . . . without actually spending a day the beach. Sunshine, fresh air, and swimming in the ocean are so overrated anyway. And if all you want to do is sit on the shore building sand castles, then there's no sense in using up your vacation time when you can just build to your heart's content right there in your enclosed, air-conditioned office.
This $10 beach-in-a-box kit contains sand that is somehow "always wet" (ew!), two plastic castle molds and sand tools, artificial shells, a tiny sailboat, and even one of those wooden spoon things that I thought were only supposed to be used for ice cream. I think that blue gel-looking stuff is just dyed water or something because there's no packet of "always wet ocean" included.
