Picture it. Saturday morning rolls around, the weather is perfect, you’ve got an entire day free. Summer is winding down and you’ve got one thing on your mind: one last relaxing day at the beach.
Which is why we’re here to remind you to (always) wear sunscreen. If you’re looking for just the right amount of shade and things to make the day a breeze, we also got you covered. After all, a stress-free day can only happen if you pack the right things. Life’s a beach and we want you to play in the sand. (Just make sure to stay six feet from other beachgoers. And check your local CDC guidelines on how to stay safe.)

Use a pillow. One that’s built for the beach, of course. This one is padded, weather-resistant, and compact. It can fold into its own carrying case and can be weighed down by adding a bit of sand. So it won’t fly away on windy days. Nap time awaits.* ($35, Ballast Gear)
Pick a new bag. This one filters out sand, dust, and water. So you can place it down without your belongings getting dirty. It also features inside pockets for your phone and wallet. Plus a magnetic snap closure. You’re welcome. ($49.95, Hammacher Schlemmer)
