3 Must-Have Beach Bags

From spontaneous days at the shore to week-long adventures at the lake house, there’s a perfect bag for every kind of beach getaway. Here are a few promotional beach bag styles that your customers are sure to reach for again and again this summer.

Cotton canvas is a classic summertime fabric—for a beach bag, choose one that has a closure to keep the sand out, and a comfortable strap for easy transport. And don’t forget that the perfect promotional beach bag should be roomy enough to hold a beach towel, sunscreen, and other sunny-day essentials.  

2. A Tote-able Cooler

For longer days at the beach, your customers will likely be toting some beverages and snacks with them. So, make sure their refreshments stay chilled with an insulated, easy-to-carry promotional beach cooler bag or tote.  

3. Nautical Boat Bags

Want to give customers something they can tote onto their boat? While you can’t go wrong with a standard cotton tote, take it up a notch by choosing a summer tote bag with nautical details. From classic stripes to rope details, a nautically-inspired boat bag is sure to bring a smile to their face…and keep your brand top-of-mind.  

3 Best Summer Travel Bags

It’s one of the busiest times of years for travel, from family vacations to destination weddings. Wherever your customers are going, send them on their way with a practical bag for summer—and a reminder of your brand.  

1. Promotional Fanny Packs

3. Camping Coolers

Summer is also a prime time of year for camping…so make sure your customers’ provisions stay cool in an adventure-ready cooler. Go for a backpack style for easy transport, or choose one that has a dual purpose—like built-in speaker, camp chair, or even a grill.

Even if your customers don’t have any big plans for the summer, they can still embrace the warm weather with a seasonal bag.  

1. Jute Tote Bags

Something about jute tote bags just says “summer.” Jute is a natural fiber that has an organic texture, and branded jute totes are super trendy right now. Customers will use these summer tote bags all season, whether they’re headed to the farmers’ market or an outdoor concert. 

2. Golf Cooler Bags

If your clients love to golf, upgrade their refreshment situation on the course with a cooler. Can cooler bags are great for golf because they’re compact, and come in sizes that hold anywhere from 6 to 40 cans.
