Packing Essentials for the Beach 2020

Summer is in full swing, and with the extra stressors of the year, everyone is in need of a getaway. Whether you are planning a family staycation or a day at the lake or beach, we all need to take a moment to treat ourselves to some extra care.

The beach is my happy place.  I love to listen to the waves crash along the beach, soak up the sun with the cool ocean breeze on my face, and just slow down a bit.

I am incredibly grateful to be able to take a trip this summer. Sure, I have known about my much-needed beach vacation for a while, but between the hustle of work and finishing the school year at home, I was not quite as prepared as I wanted to be. If you are in the same boat, and about to throw everything into a suitcase in a hurry, I made this pack list of beach essentials to help you remember a few key items

Everyday Travel Essentials

This travel bag is one of the best I’ve seen. I bring it on every adventure I take. There are multiple mesh pockets on the inside to keep everything in place, and large enough it allows you to bring full-size products. Even better, it has a hook on the inside so you can hang it on a hook or the door handle and not take up counter space.

I like to accessorize while on vacation. I don’t recommend bringing anything too expensive, but I am out to have fun and feel flirty. This Jewelry Roll made an appearance in the March 2020 Monogram Box because it is a perfect size to slip inside a suitcase and will keep everything in place and accounted for.

We all love a cute coverup for the beach, but when I am trying to pack quick and keep things to a minimum, an oversize tee is what I grab.

Cute and comfortable, they are perfect to lounge around in at your Airbnb, sip your coffee on your balcony, and are the ideal thing to slip on after playing in the water when you need just a little extra protection for your shoulders from the sun. Check out all our super soft tees HERE! Size up if you wan the oversize look.

Beach Day Essentials

Make sure to have an extra bag to carry all the things to and from the beach. Our tote bags are the perfect mix of function and style. They are lightweight and won’t take up much space in your suitcase. Check out all the style and color options!

Depending on where you stay, they may not offer extra towels for your beach adventure. Make sure to call ahead and ask, but I don’t think you can have too many towels at the beach. These come in multiple colorful patterns, are large enough to stretch out on, and can be customized!

Staying hydrated is essential in keeping everyone happy and having fun all day long. Keep drinks for the whole crew cool all day in an easy-to-carry cooler tote! If you are one of my Monogram Box Subscribers, you got an awesome monogrammed cooler tote large enough for a whole day of fun. If you missed out, I have a few of these teal striped cooler totes still available and ready to monogram.

If it’s just a few of you, and you want to pack small this skinny can cooler will keep a single drink cool for 12 hours!! It is sized to fit any of those tall and thin cans you have and the perfect way to take your favorite drink with you wherever you go.

If you are lucky and have a secluded area at the beach, a waterproof Bluetooth speaker is the perfect addition to your beach essential pack list. Toss a football and listen to your favorite playlist!

Protection from the sun is a must-have for the whole family. I personally love a cute trucker hat. They will fit into any bag without a problem. I LOVE this colorful tie-dye hat for the beach! If you aren’t the biggest fan of caps, check out this adorable wide brim Fedora sun hat that is foldable so you don’t have to worry about it getting ruined in your suitcase.

Packing for a beach trip can be a bit tricky. Make sure everyone has what they need and grab some of these beach essentials for your next trip.
