Summertime just makes me want to relax by the pool and not worry about a thing. In stores I keep seeing outfits and activities for summer, which means it is time to stock up on summer essentials! I am always one of the first people to get cute colorful towels, sunglasses, and flip flops. In Phoenix we start getting ready for summer early because it feels like summer in March. My latest summer obsession is those adorable drink pool floats that look like swans and flamingos. How great is it that now you can have your Coca-Cola™ or Diet Coke® floating along with you in the pool to cool you off in the heat of summer! I thought why keep all of the summer fun to myself? This year I am spreading some summer fun with the friends I can’t wait to share the summer with by giving them a beach towel gift bag. Since summer is all about relaxing I didn’t want to make anything difficult but I wanted to think of a fun way to give a simple summer gift. I had the idea to make a beach towel into a gift basket. It was easier than I expected and works perfect for summer. With a few simple steps you will have an easy summer gift on the go and be at the pool before you know it!

It was located conveniently right when I came into the store towards the front of the store in the middle, a few steps from the register. Right next to what you need for summer fun! I also found them in the beverage section. Somehow I passed by the cute display up front and didn’t see it until I was getting my other summer fun items. I must be getting a little too relaxed for summer! I picked up a couple Share an Ice Cold Coca-Colas, flip flops, sunglasses, and other fun stuff for the pool in seconds. I had to stock up for my own summer supply and got some for friend’s gift bags.
Then I was ready to make my simple towel beach bag!

- Fold the bottom third up towards the top.
- Roll the towel around towards the right.
- When you get to the last roll unfold the bottom third piece.
