9 Tips for Packing the Perfect Beach Bag

Spring is almost here! Now is the time to search for the perfect beach bag so that you can get it packed and ready to go for vacations and warmer months. Whether you're going to the beach with some friends or you're going with your family and need to pack for everyone, we have a personalized beach bag for you! Our monogrammed beach bag options range from smaller sizes to extra large sizes with tons of pockets. We even have a waterproof beach bag that is easy to spray down and clean!

1) Sunglasses

The first must-have item to pack in your beach bag is a pair of sunglasses. We recommend leaving your name-brand sunglasses at home so that they don't get dirty. Be sure to bring a pair that filters out UVA and UVB light to protect your eyes from the sun.

2) Visor or Hat

Whether it's a visor, wide brim hat, or baseball hat, a hat for the beach is a must! This will help keep the sun out of your face, as well as protect your scalp. We have so many monogrammed visors, baseball hats, and sun hats to choose from at Marleylilly.

3) Flip Flops

You can't head out for a day in the sun without a pair of flip-flops. You'll want to make sure you have a comfortable pair since you will likely be wearing these to and from the beach.

4) Sunscreen

When packing your beach bag, you must not forget the sunscreen! It's important to use a sunscreen with broad-spectrum protection to fight against UVA and UVB rays. We recommend using sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and applying it at least every two hours. If swimming or sweating, you should apply it every hour.

5) SPF Lip Balm

Not only does your skin need protection from the sun, but so do your lips! Toss some sunscreen lip balm in your bag to keep your lips protected from harmful sun rays.

6) Beach Towel

No matter if you're taking a beach chair or not, a beach towel is a necessity for a beach day. We have multiple options to choose from at Marleylilly, including Monogrammed Chair Covers, Monogrammed Beach Towels, and Monogrammed Round Towels. We even have a new Monogrammed Microfiber Towel coming soon that is sand resistant, folds up in a small packable size, and dries quickly.

7) Sand Buddy

Keep your drink, phone, and/or snacks from getting sandy with our handy Monogrammed Sand Buddy. Once you start using one of these, you'll never know how you went without one!

8) Phone Pouch

When you are at the beach, there is nothing worse than your phone getting wet and sandy. This water-resistant pouch is perfect for holding your phone, keys, and anything else you want to protect!

9) Bluetooth Speaker

Everyone knows a good time at the beach is always accompanied by some good music. Be sure to pack a small Bluetooth speaker so that you can all relax to your favorite tunes.
