What every mom truly deserves this Mother’s Day is a day or two (or three weeks) at the beach. But if an all-expenses-paid tropical vacation is just a little out of your budget, there are plenty of other R&R-related options that still hold water.
Maybe she’d appreciate a cute swim cover-up that protects her skin from the sun or a chic beach tote that brings that seaside spirit to her everyday errands. No matter what floats her boat, these picks ensure the travel-loving mom in your life enjoys her day in the sun.

Clare V. Sandy Beach Bag
With its roomy size and crochet fabric, this tote was designed for sandy situations. But with sleek leather handles, this stylish piece—available in black, yellow or this natural hue—goes way beyond the beach.
Feminist Book Club Membership
Does she love stretching out with a thought-provoking book? Hook her up with this subscription and book club in one. Every month, members suggest and vote on which feminist book they’ll consume—then, post-read, they dissect it via Slack, Facebook, and the monthly Zoom book club. But Mom will have more than just a page-turner to flip through. Each subscription box comes with three to five products from women-owned businesses (think: tasty treats, notebooks, candles) and the warm-hearted feeling that comes from knowing 5 percent of your purchase is donated to social justice organizations.
San Diego Hat Ultrabraid XL Brim Sun Hat
Another out of office hat? She can never have enough. This delightfully floppy topper with an extra-wide brim for maximum sun-shielding is a must-have for vacation and, well, everywhere else she goes this summer. Bonus: It provides UPF 50 protection so she won’t bring home a sunburn as a souvenir.
COOLA Classic Face Organic Sunscreen SPF 50
Take the heat off Mom by gifting her this vacation must. Crafted from red raspberry seed oil, prickly pear extract, and calming neroli flower extract, this dermatologist-tested hydrating lotion feels lightweight, but it offers heavy protection—some 80 minutes of water-resistant SPF 50.
Mott50 Freda Short Tie Waist Cover Up – Golden Hour
She can lounge without getting sun damage thanks to this brand’s lightweight woven UPF50+ fabric. In a standout print, the breathable polyester reads like silk—except it’s quick-drying, machine washable, and able to be tossed in a tote without fear of wrinkles.
Tesalate Between Two Palms Sand-Free Beach Towel
Leave it to an Aussie brand to have cracked the code to hassle-free beach days. The patent-pending AbsorbLite fabric is designed to stop sand from sticking (even the wet stuff!) and cut drying time in half. And with its own pouch, it’s easy to store in any carry-on.
While the ability to keep her water (or, let’s be real, cocktail) cold for up to 12 hours is clutch, that’s not the coolest feature of this stainless steel, double-wall vacuum-insulated thermos. Thanks to a roomy storage container in the bottom, it’s easy to stash keys, headphones, jewelry, credit cards, or anything else she wouldn’t want lost at sea.
Beachly Women’s Subscription Box
Can’t get away?

Mouth Sunshine In A Glass Cocktail Kit
Help keep that paper umbrella cocktail feeling flowing all year long. The brand’s Sunshine in a Glass assortment is filled with craft mixers like their classic Bloody Mary blend, cucumber mint syrup, and grapefruit basil limeade, plus cute napkins and shatterproof old fashioned glasses. Just add alcohol and vacation jams.
Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ Beach Walk
Tans fade, but this salty air-inspired scent will let her hang onto those vacation vibes indefinitely. Infused with notes of bergamot, pink pepper, and coconut milk, the warm fragrance is sure to become her new go-to scent.
