Sizzling Summer Essentials For The School Holidays

Sizzling Summer Essentials For The School Holidays

Yippee! School’s finally out for the summer. Although, we must admit that with the Great British weather it doesn’t feel like it sometimes! Don’t let the rain get you down, instead think about all the fun to be had over the next six weeks. We’ve chosen some sizzling summer essentials for you and your family to enjoy during the school holidays. Our picks will be sure to keep the kids entertained and you looking stylish if you’re lucky enough to be jetting off somewhere with a less temperamental climate this summer. Although, you can also improvise back here in Blighty too!

Brilliant bags

Beach bags are a holiday packing essential. We’ve got a great collection of SOI 55 Lifestyle beach bags and pouches for all your beachside paraphernalia. And we know that’s often vast when it comes to taking kids to the beach! Made from durable canvas and fully-lined, these beach bags will keep your kit safe. We especially love the bright ‘Tropical’ canvas pouch bag. This has been hand-painted by a local artisan in Thailand, meaning that it’s completely unique and one-of-a-kind.

As it’s not just the adults that need somewhere to stash their stuff during the summer holidays, we’ve got the kids covered too. The summer break is made for adventures and exploring which is why we love this fruity pineapple backpack from Disaster Designs. Made to form a pineapple shape when closed, this happy, fun-loving bag ticks all the right boxes, especially as there’s a space for your child to write their name in the ‘I belong to’ box…

Summery scarves

Our summer scarves are the perfect summer gift for friends, or yourself. We have lots of designs available from different but equally fantastic designers. Continuing with the tropical theme, the pineapple print scarves from Becksöndergaard are the perfect choice for summer and come in range of colours. The lightweight fabric means they’re perfect to use as beach cover-up, too.

Poolside partners

No summer holiday is complete without these poolside partners. We’re talking towels and inflatables, of course! When it comes to swimming in style, you need look no further than ban.do. This fun LA-born brand combines fun design with bright, statement colours and funny slogans. You’ll definitely make a splash with their pool party beach towel and giant stripe beach float.
