Living somewhere the sand is already too hot to touch by May, I can’t tell you just how useful these aqua socks are. Available in a huge variety of patterns and colours, aqua socks will protect feet from sharp objects, heat and gives a non-slip surface.

A stylish beach cover-up in her favourite color can be the perfect beach gift for mom. Rayon material is perfect for the heat, and with a button-up design, a simple pair of shorts mom can also wear this one when you hitting the beachside shops or heading home maintaining modesty.

Kobo Forma eReader

Because mama loves some reading time on the beach this summer, right? RIGHT! When that day comes that mom can sit back and relax on the beach once more, a waterproof E Ink touchscreen is a must. I’ll admit we converted to Kindle for a few years for all the additional features, but if you simply love your books in something super lightweight that works equally well with bright sun as in bed with blue light, you MUST invest in a great Reader, this one is my personal favorite I’d recommend for all mamas who love a good rad outside.
