The Beach Essentials They NEED!
You’ve booked the flights, downloaded an app to count the days left until paradise, (still.so.many) and you’ve been stocking up on sun cream since last summer. As the queens of packing and prepping, we know you mums have got this. But just in case you’re in need of a little inspo, or something to get you in the sunshine spirit, we’ve pulled together some of our must-have beach buys that your little ‘un can’t go without!
Whether you’re heading for Bali, Barcelona, or Bognor Regis, the truest of holiday essentials remains the same…swimwear! Forget to pack their cozzy and not only will you never hear the end of it, (‘you ruin everything muuuum’) you’ll probably be accused of stopping the little babe’s dreams of becoming a mermaid. Avoid the drama and pick theirs up from just €3.50!
A personal holiday fave…buffet-ready get up. Lightweight, jersey playsuits and dresses that allows them to make the most of the delicious all-inclusive goodness that’s up for grabs. Forget anything that restricts their ability to go up for a third round of ice-cream…this is a holiday and they deserve all the dreamy desserts.
Dragging round the whole fam’s books, games, towels and water in 30 degree heat? No thank you. Grab the little one’s a beach bag of their own and you never have to carry their stuff again – genius! Somewhere to stash their shades and keep their collection of shells, this is definitely an essential for you both!
There are two types of footwear that they need in their case. A pair they can run along the sand in and splash about round the pool, and the other for when the sun goes down…a.k.a the dancing shoe! With flip-flops from €1.50, does it really matter if the shoes don’t make it home? And for the latter, there’s nothing quite like a glittery, neon sandal to glam up their evening outfit and hit the dance floor in!
It couldn’t be easier or more affordable to get your beach babes ready for this summer’s tropical escapades…so what are you waiting for?! Head down to your local Primark and start getting excited!
