No gatekeeping going on here! As self-proclaimed party planning pros, we never want our guests to celebrate without the ultimate BATCH approved vacay essentials. We’ve got your back with our summer bachelorette must-haves so you can spend less time worrying about what to pack and more time making memories.
1) Sunscreen and sun protection
Picture this: you’re lazing by the pool, immersing yourself in those chill summer vibes. Sunscreen is your BFF and you’ve got an arsenal of options — from SPF superheroes to gentle sun-kissed protectors. Everyone’s covered, quite literally. And don’t forget your fashion forward sun gear either! Rock some wide-brimmed hats and sassy sunglasses that’ll make you feel like a celeb hiding from the paparazzi. Breezy cover-ups are another trendy summer must — not only do they keep you both cool, but you’ll look chic while comfortably shielded from the sun’s relentless gaze.

3) Refreshing Beverages and Coolers
The secret to rallying? Hydration, hydration, hydration! It starts with a cooler filled to the brim with liquid delights: we’re talking chilled water, juices and mocktails that taste like liquid rainbows, and of course, your fave summer-style cocktails. Just have your reusable water bottle handy if you’re going full booze-marathon. You can also take your drink game up a notch with personalized cups and koozies, colorful straws and cocktail umbrellas that’ll transport you to a tropical paradise with every sip. We’re basically turning hydration into an art form at this point.
Our hydration-focused picks have all the space for your must-have bevs:
4) Beach or picnic essentials
Get ready to pack your beach bags to the brim with essentials! Lounge like beach royalty with fluffy beach towels and folding chairs (especially for all our pale girls who are looking to get their tan on). If you’re a sun-protection pro, opt for beach umbrellas and shade tents to make sure the sun is no match for your party planning preparedness. Bring the cooler with you and pack classic summer lunch options like fruit and sandwiches that your guests are sure to love. The kicker for a successful beach day? Lots and lot’s of games! Beach volleyball, frisbee, and paddleball ALWAYS provide epic showdowns.
This vacation gear will have you and your guests beaching comfortably:
5) Decorations and Party Props
First things first, make your guest of honor feel extra special with colorful banners and festive balloons decked out at your vacay rental. If you wanna lean into the beachiness of the BATCH party, make the vibes a little more on-theme with decor like seashells, palm leaves and tropical flowers. Looking for insta-worthy photo-ops? The trick is ALWAYS party props. Boas, hats, and silly sunglasses are the secret to snap-happy moments with your besties.
