    7. A durable, water-resistant outdoor blanket sure to make your beach visits comfy. And because it's made with a woven acrylic, your visits will also be a tad more sand-free. Easily shake sand off of it before throwing it in the back of your car.

    8. Or a sand-proof beach blanket because worrying about sand going in places sand shouldn't be going always ruins the serenity you're trying to find while lounging at the beach.
