Summer Must-Haves for the Beach


It’s mid-July and chances are if you haven’t already taken a few beach trips, you’re getting ready to! While it’s relaxing to lie out in the sun with your feet in the sand listening to the waves, sometimes packing for a beach vacation, (or even a day trip), can be stressful, especially when packing for an entire family!

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite beach products that we always have at the ready in our reusable Wedderspoon canvas tote. Keep scrolling for a list of products you’re sure to love over and over again this summer!

1. A Backpack Beach Chair

When you’re already lugging towels, coolers, umbrellas and a multitude of other necessities to the beach, this backpack chair simplifies your beach trek.

2. Organic Manuka Honey Lip Balm

You’ll want to lather this on your lips after a day in the sun. The intensely moisturizing, all natural formula keeps lips soft and supple. Stock up on all three delicious flavors for the entire family here. 

3. Badger SPF 25 Unscented Sunscreen Lotion

Nothing puts more of a damper on a beach vacation than going home more burnt than a freshly caught lobster. Not only is sunburn painful,  but it can also cause wrinkles and skin cancer. We love this cruelty free, Non-GMO mineral version from Badger. Looking for more information on how to be safe in the sun? Check out the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to Safer Sunscreen here!

4. Manuka Honey Artisanal Soap

This hydrating and sweet smelling soap will help wash all the sunblock off your skin after a day soaking up the sun. And, good news! This soap is on sale (buy one get one free) right now so stock up!

5. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

If you’re going to spend the day on the beach, you’ll want to pump your favorite tunes. The key word here is waterproof!

6. Honey On The Go

These convenient individual sachets of Manuka honey hardly take up any room in your beach bag but will provide an instant boost of energy during a day in the sun. Bonus: kids love ’em!
