What's not to love about this awesome beach tent? It provides 97.5% UV protection and has three windows for venting and beach views. When open and set up completely, it measures 47.2 inches center height, 49.2 inches wide and 86.6 inches deep. The tent can easily fit two regular size beach chairs. It's a perfect beach tent to shield your whole family from harmful rays. The Ylovetoys Instant Beach Tent won't easily blow away, either. You can fill up the five sand pockets, and or utilize the four tent stakes that allow you to secure all four corners.
I just recently discovered the Coolibar brand. They call it their brand of sun protective clothing “unrelenting UPF 50+ protection, in or out of the water.” I love this Sun Blanket because I often cover my legs and feet during the scorching hot summer days at the beach and still can feel the hot rays burning my skin! The blankets come in multiple colors and patterns.
The Scala hat is popular brand on Amazon, and was highly recommended by one of my friends. The hat comes in tons of colors and is also UPF 50+ protective. I like that it also has a drawstring so you can hang it around your neck or pull it tighter as needed.
I did an informal Facebook poll and asked my friends about their favorite things to take to the beach to make their day more fun and comfortable. The Travelon Floating Waterproof Camera Pouch was a friend's top pick. This is a great accessory if you are boating or just want to protect your phone from the water and sand.
Sunscreen. It's always on the list to take the beach, right? But this one, Pacifica's All Mineral Continuous Spray, is different according to my friend, Ciaran Bluemenfeld, founder of Momfluential Media. “It is mineral based and makes you look tan and glammy, smells great and no streaky/white mess,” she said. Typically us moms will buy the supersize sunscreen bottles and make sure it fits everyone in the family but ourselves! I love this addition to the gift list because it's not just an ordinary sun protectant – it's a little glam on the go!
The Tommy Bahama Backpack chairs are a staple in our family. They fold up easily, and have cooler pockets that zip up on the back! They have drink pockets on the sides and this duo comes with a medium tote cooler bag. The chairs (and matching umbrellas) come in assorted fun festive patterns that make it easy to spot your beach set up from a distance.
How cool is this little gadget? I despise sandy, soaked beach towels, especially at the end of the day when they weigh ten more pounds than they did in the morning! This handy little hook is the perfect quick fix for wet clothing and towels.
I wear these flip-flops almost every day, 365 days of the year. (No lie!) I order them in multiple pairs and colors and then rotate them as needed with outfits. They are super comfy, and they have a nice lift for arch support. I should own stock in this company as a I am a true super fan and recommend these flip-flips highly!
This item may seem a little out of place on a list of gifts for moms who love the beach, but trust me, it's not. It's one of my all-time favorite things that I've owned. This hair dryer is truly a feat of engineering. It's fast, light and works wonders on my beach hair. It's pricy, but worth every cent because I spend about ten minutes less a day now drying my hair. If you buy this as a gift, you will be a HUGE hero! (Or Shero!)
