This may be the most important item to pack! With different styles for both girls and boys, check out the options at Kicks and Giggles. With trending patterns and durable fabrics, these will be the greatest purchase this season.

Sunglasses and Sunhats

Protection from the sun comes in many forms. In addition to sunscreen, sunhats and sunglasses are essential to protect kids’ faces and eyes. And since their a beach must-have, why not add some style to the outfit of the day? From solids to patterns, the options are plentiful.

Multi-Use Covers

You never know when you’re going to need to feed, push the stroller around, or just let your baby take a nap in a shaded spot. The multi-use covers at Kicks & Giggles are handy to have for any summer activity but can also serve as protection against the sun at the beach or on a walk.


Easy on-and-off shoes for the kids is a definite must when you’re heading to the beach or the pool. Protect their feet from the hot surfaces by having them wear sandals. Although it may be new for them to not be wearing tied shoes and socks, it will make cleaning dirt and sand a breeze before getting back into your car.

Other essentials to remember for your beach day include: sunscreen, beach towels, beach balls and other beach toys, flotation devices or life jackets, and your family’s favorite snacks and water in a cooler.
