A quick trip to the beach always ends up being an involved trip to the beach, because somebody is always forgetting the sunscreen, a water bottle, the current issue of Vogue... So what's one more thing? Although the Cotton Sun Shade ($298) is pretty sizable at six feet high, the frame is lightweight and it all rolls up into a tote bag for carrying. And if you live by a beach without any natural shade, you're soon going to find this thing as essential as sunscreen or fashion mags.
