You did it. You made it through the winter, the slush, the snow, and the accompanying midterms. Now it’s time to enjoy some sun and relax with friends. Whether you are partying on the beach or in search of somewhere a little more tranquil we want to be sure you have the tools to make the most of your well-deserved vacay. Gear up for your best spring break yet with our absolute must-haves!

Spring Break Essentials:

1. A Hammock (of, course):

There is no better way to catch some zzz’s or nurse a hangover than swinging between two trees with the ocean breeze overhead. With enough room for a friend and a stuff sack that conveniently holds your corona at arm’s length, you can’t go wrong bringing it with you everywhere.

2. Trunk Straps:

You may have your favorite hang spot at home, but on vacation it’s hard to know when the tree situation might be. Take no chances and prepare to #hanganywhere with these super versatile, super strong straps. In 6 colors you are sure to stand out in the crowd.

3. Native Eyewear Sunglasses:

Don’t sacrifice quality for style when you don’t have to. Native Eyewear makes premium quality sunglasses, with polarized lenses, in fresh designs you will love. Protect your eyes from the sun’s rays and look good doing it.

4. Parasheet Beach Blanket:

The best beach blanket in the world, no joke. This beach blanket is a game-changer. Not only does it dry super quick, shake sand off instantly, but it has corner pockets that when packed with sand will keep in place even in windy conditions (trust us, we are from the Windy City). No more shaking out wet sandy towels, or getting sand in your food and purses.

5. Freakers:

Avoid slippery bottles, and wet handshakes with these American made party staples. With tons of designs from a dinosaur on a bike, to your university’s mascot, you are sure to stand out from the sea of foam beer can koozies, and start a convo with these one size fits all bottle sleeves.

6. Bamboo Blend Towel & Cover Up:

Stay dry and comfortable with this super soft and super absorbent bamboo-blend towel. With adjustable button closures that let you wear the towel comfortable while you walk around or change, this towel is a necessity for the adventurer on the move.
