My beach bag before kiddos was packed very differently than my beach tote these days. There are several items that I deem mom must haves when it comes to hitting the beach this summer.
Sipsee® Portable Bottle Stopper
Founded in 2015, Sipsee’s parent company, GHI, has a purpose to create and deliver products and services with a socially conscious perspective. They strive to think beyond themselves and operate with the highest of integrity to be a company that’s objective is to be a force for good!
Sipsee® solves several problems. First, it is a bottle stopper that fits a myriad of drinks such as water bottles, sports drink bottles, beer bottles, etc. Put a Sipsee® on your drink and come back to it later! The customizable design makes it perfect for claiming your drink among a group of other drinks, saving money and reducing waste by finding and finishing your drink before opening another bottle. I personally love that it keeps the sand out of my beach beverage while enjoying the sun.
Sipsee’s carrying case comes with a split ring for your keychain, or optional carabiner clip to attach to your beach bag, purse or belt loop for easy access. This company makes their products in the USA and ensures that it is free of BPAs, BPSs, Phthalates, PVC, and Antimony.

No one wants to lug their nice handbag out to the beach but often times when we throw our phone or lipstick in a basic clutch we run the risk of overheating our devices and melting our cosmetics. I love using the Cool-It Caddy in my beach bag to keep my makeup, snacks, and electronics safe. The fully insulated interior with ‘freeze and go’ removable coolant packs keep cosmetics and perishables fresh and cool for up to 7 hours! The exterior is waterproof and features one zippered pouch and one pocket for carrying credit cards and cash.
This product would also make for the perfect gift for guys on the golf course or for the kiddo that plays sports. Pop a drink and snack in the Cool-It Caddy and let him take it into the dugout for a mid-game snack!
Stylish Flats | La Mar Mules
Every mom needs stylish flats for the mid-day lunch breaks. My favorite shoe to do the trick are the La Mar mules. I love that they are super cute and made with soft lamb skin leather and a durable leather sole. They come with a drawstring bag so you can keep them together in your beach tote.
I just love the story behind the La Mar Lifestyle brand. Created by Clara Castillo. Clara grew up surrounded by the sea and she describes this place as always filling her with energy and peace. The beach takes Clara into her mind, to the deepest reflections and her best moments of relaxation. The influences of the sea are shown in Clara’s designs.
Deo Doc Intimate Wipes
The worst is when you get sand in your pants, especially if you have lady bits. I always carry my Deo Doc Intimate Wipes for a quick freshen up after surfing the waves. These pH-balanced deodorant wipes help neutralize odor and are also cleansing at the same time. This makes them perfect when you are on the go and in need of a quick freshening up. I love that they are individually wrapped to provide convenient use and concealment.
My favorite SPF while at the beach is Sun blocz 50 SPF. Sunblocz Tinted, is a 100% all-natural, mineral sunscreen. The formula contains the highest percent of Zinc Oxide (non-nano) in a base of natural and anti-oxidant ingredients; The result is a safe, natural formula that offers superior sunburn protection for the whole family. Naturally Tinted and Reef Safe.
