Now that you have purchased the perfect swimsuit and beach accessories, the only thing left to do is create a personalized bag to tote all of your gear! Enter: Makaboo, THE site for personalized gifts. Their line of summer tote bags is spot-on for summer fun since they are able to withstand all of the rough and tumble activities that the season brings. You can choose plain with contrast-color handles or a selection of fun prints. From adorable pink dogs sporting green collars to bright yellow bees, these sturdy canvas totes provide a classic way to get your gear from point A to B.

The bags are moderately priced at $40 for a medium and $50 for a large, which includes personalization. I was amazed at how easy it was to personalize the bag since it even shows you a mock-up as you go along! You can customize the font and thread color as well, but they make sure to give you selections that will coordinate with the design you choose.

Gift wrapping is also included in the price, and I was pleasantly surprised at how adorable the finished product looked when it arrived! It was wrapped in a clear bag (folded just right so the personalization was showcased) and topped with a gift card and coordinating ribbon. I adore the fact that I can send a gift directly to a friend without having to intercept the shipment to wrap and pop in a card.

I took the bag for a test run at the pool last weekend and it was a hit! In the large tote, I was able to pack a couple of towels, sunscreen, bathing suits, and a small clutch in with room to spare. Multiple people complimented me on the chic bag, noting the distinctly nautical, east coast vibe and sturdy construction. Enjoy a bag that will last for years to come, and one your children will beg to borrow!
