So far this week I have shared our family’s favorite sunscreens, our beach vacation packing list, as well as my mom hacks for family vacationing, but today’s post is the one that will get your family ready for summer. I am sharing so many of my favorite products and essentials, including some new ones you may not know about!
First, I want to tell you about our sponsor, My Beachmate. I came across their genius stackable system a few years ago on Instagram and knew it would be a perfect thing to share on DoSayGive. This all-in-one, lightweight family beach organizer transports toys, snacks, sunscreen and other essentials in a seamless way that makes it so easy on parents of young children. Even better, it’s a cooler and tote in one – beach toys and shovels are included!
We took ours to 30A a few week ago and I had so many moms stop and ask me where they could get one for themselves. There are so many clever things about the Beachmate like how the sand toys can flip over to become drink holders. And they have lots of towels and accessories to go with My Beachmate. So clever!
And My Beachmate makes the perfect gift for a teacher, mom, or a friend with a lake house as we head into summer because it can be personalized! Adorable!
Another great find are these super affordable monogrammed hats from The Plaid Pig for women and children. My girls and I wore them everyday at the beach along with my favorite summer steal: these children’s white terry coverups on Amazon that would be so cute monogrammed. (Note: the run super small so go up at least one size!).
Oh and see those white Native shoes my daughter is wearing? She wore them to the beach, biking, to dinner with Lilly dresses. So versatile and just hose off to rinse! I like the Mary Jane version for girls better than the normal style (which is cute for boys!).
I’ve talked about my love for this SCOUT pool bag before but it is still one of my favorites for a family pool or beach bag because it is so big and comes is so many cute patterns! I can fit 5-6 towels plus pool toys and sunscreen. I use Roberta Rabbit toiletry bags or Lolo bags for sunscreen and goggles and stick inside the SCOUT bag.
As for towels, Turkish towels are so popular right now because they are lightweight and wick away moisture so quickly. I love the feel of this particular towel and it ships free! These also make great graduation presents and teacher gifts when tied up with some raffia. The fringe circle towels are also so popular right now and The Plaid Pig has so many cute styles! See below for our favorite children’s towels and more accessories, games, activities, and treats for fun all summer long!
