10 Memorial Day Weekend Must-Haves

Memorial Day Weekend is fast approaching! The glorious 3-day weekend where we remember all who have served and pay our respects. Many families, like mine, spend the weekend outside – grilling, swimming, camping, hosting dinner parties, and spending quality time with family. If you’re like me, you like to plan ahead for the busy weekend to come.

10 memorial day weekend must-haves

Here are a few things that may come in handy for your outdoor adventures this Memorial Day Weekend.

  1. Sun Bum Sunscreen Family Pack

We love that it’s great for travel and comes in a reusable bag!

2. Liquid IV Hydration Multiplier 

A must-have for hydrating when you’re outside all day!

3. Crossbody Sling Backpack

Super cute, lightweight, and functional!

4. Super Absorbent Microfiber Towels

I love this 4-pack of towels in a convenient carrying case!

5. Portable Cot with Fitted Sheet

Perfect for tent camping with your little one(s)!

6. Large Insulated Grill Caddy 

The motherload of organization – everything you’ll need to grill out!

7. Quick Dry Aqua Socks

Perfect for walks on the beach or around the campground.

8. Screened Camping Tent Canopy

It keeps bugs out without suffocating you inside a hot tent!

Kids (and adults) will love these! So fun!
