Summer Beach Essentials at Thingz!

Thingz has all that you need to make the most of Summer 2023! With these summer essentials, hitting the beach will be easier than ever. You’ll be ready for those beautiful, long hot days in the sand, or a lovely evening watching a glorious WA sunset. All at very friendly prices.

So, let’s take a look at some of the awesome summer items that Thingz gifts has on offer…

Tropical & Rainbow Print Beach Bags

We all need an adorable beach bag, that we can pile everything into and keep all of our beach essentials in one place. At the start of summer, pack in a tube of sunscreen and a hat for sun protection, a refillable water bottle, a few of the kid’s favourite toys, and a romance novel – then your beach bag is always ready to grab and go! Our beach bags are available in the bright prints of rainbow and tropical designs.

Sand Proof Towel

Thingz Gifts has a wide selection of sand proof towels and beach mats. What makes a towel sand proof? Our sand proof towels are made with special microfiber material, that means sand cannot stick to the towels, even if they have been used to lie on all day. Unlike ordinary towels, you won’t find them bringing sand into your car or back to your house. We have sand proof towels available in a variety of different sizes and prints, so everyone can find one that suits their style!

2 in 1 Cooler Bag

When you’re in for a long day at the beach, under the summer sun, it can be very handy to have a cooler bag in tow. Keep your water bottles cold and snacks for your kids fresh. Alternatively, brings some drinks down to the coast to enjoy a romantic sunset picnic. This 2 in 1 cooler bag is fitted with a mesh bag on top of the cooler section. This way, you can bring all of the other fundamentals (your sand proof towel, maybe?), and of course, never forget your trusty sunscreen.

The Thingz Gifts Team Wishes You a Safe Summer!  

With all these summer essentials sorted, there is a couple of other essential things to keep in mind.

The first being, stay safe in the sun. Dig out those beach tents and umbrellas to create a little shelter for your group. Invest in a gorgeous hat (the bigger, the better). Most importantly, never forget to slip, slop, slap! SPF 50 is a minimum requirement these days.

The second is to always remember to swim between the flags, and always keep an eye on your friends and family in the ocean.  Stay within the eye line of the lifeguards, and ask them any questions if you are unsure if the beach is safe for you to swim today. Also, avoid swimming at night time, no matter the weather.
