Summer is finally here! Whether you’re heading to the beach, a water park, or a pool, you need to arm your kids with summer essentials and fun accessories so they can get the most out of the hot summer months. Grab a tube of sunscreen, an extra pair of sunglasses, and lots of water to keep your kids hydrated, and then browse through our collection of unique summer gifts for kids to find personalized items that will make summer even more fun and exciting.

Here are some summer must-haves for kids that will ensure your children get all the enjoyment they can out of the season.

Personalized beach towels

A good beach towel is a must for every kid, teen, and adult. A personalized beach towel offers one great advantage over all the rest: no towel mix-ups, ever.

By adding your kids’ names to be printed or embroidered on their beach towels, you can be sure they’ll grab the right one every time. No missing towels, no mix-ups, and no help needed from mom and dad to find their towel.

We even have personalized hooded towels for the tiniest of swimmers, with super fun designs such as sharks and mermaids!).

Whichever one you choose, these beach towels can all be personalized for the kids or whole family to make your next outing to the pool, water park, or beach hassle free.

Personalized water bottles

Whether it’s a backyard pool party or a day at the beach, staying hydrated is extremely important, especially for the kids who are too busy having fun. Customizing a stainless steel refillable water bottle with your kids’ names is a responsible, eco-friendly option that offers several added benefits.

By giving kids their own personalized water bottles, you can easily monitor how much water they’re drinking. And just like with personalized beach towels, you don’t have to worry about mix-ups when it comes to quickly finding a drink.

With plenty of fun kids designs to choose from, you can customize BPA- and lead-free stainless steel water bottles that kids will love. The insulated bottles will keep their drinks cool much better than ordinary plastic bottles, and you’ll be reducing waste by not relying on throw-away plastic bottles.

Customize a water bottle for everyone in the family to make sure everyone stays hydrated all summer long.

Summer hats, beach toys, and more

During the heat of summer, sunblock is essential, but a good wide-brimmed hat can also help protect your little ones from the sun’s searing rays.

This personalized hat is made from sun protective fabric that’s lightweight and water resistant. Available in two sizes (infant and toddler) and two colors (pink and blue), it can be personalized with any name or monogram in one of 33 color choices. The adorable bucket hat also includes a tie closure, so you can be sure it stays on while the kids play.

Another practical summer gift for kids is a folding chair they can use no matter where they are outdoors.

Choose from a beach chair with an umbrella combo that’s perfect for those sunny days, or personalize a folding chair that fits conveniently into a carry bag.

While not a summer essential, beach toys make playing in the sand that much more fun for kids. Our custom embroidered beach totes, filled with sand toys, are a perfect gift for kids heading to the beach.

The totes come in fish and shark designs, and can be personalized with any name. They’re a fun accessory for kids that encourages independence by having them take ownership of what they pack and bring along on their day of beach adventure.
