Whether you enjoy spending time at the pool or the beach, have a bag ready with the essentials so you can enjoy the summer sun quicker and easier. Consider a large size carryall or tote to store everything needed to maximize your time in the sun. A mesh or canvas material is also a great, durable choice for time spent outdoors. From sunscreen to snacks, there can be a range of items to keep handy for wherever the day in the sun takes you.
Pick your preference of sunscreen (spray or lotion) and keep it handy in a pocket of your bag. Consider buying extra as it can quickly run out. For more active days in the sun, check out a Sport version of your favorite sunscreen.
Don’t forget the towel! Pack a few towels to quickly dry off with or lay out on near the water. Choose bright colors to get in the spirit of summer.
Keep cool in the sun with a stylish reusable cup. A reusable cup is a great way to save as it allows for easy refilling. Plus, reusable cups can be a great way to reduce waste!
Store a few low-maintenance (and melt-proof) snacks for when hunger strikes. Nuts, fruit snacks, pretzels and wafers are all great additions for easy snacking. Easy-seal bags are another option to keep food fresh and safe from outdoor debris.
Fun in the Sun:
If spending the day with children or trying to make the most being water-side, pack a handful of small toys. These can be great to keep the kids busy while reading and relaxing. Try a beach play set that takes the guesswork out of which toys to pack.
