Memorial Day is quickly approaching, which means the weekends will soon be packed with bonfires, sunbathing, and barbecues. So, first things first – head to the closest coast. Next? Outfit your abode with all things nautical, practical, and essential. Here, our Rue Living experts share their top picks.

Beach-House Essentials

Collapsible Basket Cooler: Insulated and sturdy, use this to transport food for the whole family. Rainy day? Leave it open in the entryway for storing beach reads and towels.

Malibu Cheese Set: Think instant summer with every slice of Brie. All that’s missing? Homemade red sangria and a slew of friends.

Beach Towel for 2: Sure, you could invite a friend to share. Or you could sprawl out, magazine and all, without sticking to the sand.
