Shipt’s Beach Must-Haves!

Shipt HQ has caught a serious case of spring fever, and the countdown to summer is FINALLY upon us.

We launched in the Gulf Coast a few weeks ago, and we haven’t been able to get the beach off our minds. Luckily for all of you Shipters, you can take Shipt on vacation with you to all of our Florida coverage areas! We now have a vacation option in the app, where you can sign up for a week-long membership for just $19. This deal is perfect for our sun-soakers that don’t live in our coverage areas but love to get away to them!

With all of this beach buzz in the office, we came up with a list of beach bag must-haves for your next coastal vacation.



Fun in the sun can have a lot of benefits, BUT those UV rays can also be super harmful to your skin. Make sure to get a higher SPF, like the Neutrogena Sheer Body Mist (SPF 30), to protect skin from sun burns.  Don’t forget a lip balm with SPF; that’s in the app, too!


Whether you choose bottled water, cans of La Croix sparkling water, or reusable bottles, you can have it sent straight to your beach abode.

Staying hydrated is essential to enjoying a day at the beach!



Fresh fruits and veggies are always a favorite
 on the beach. Add some peanut butter and hummus for dipping, and you’re set! BACK TO NATURE trail mix, or KIND bars, we love them all. Explore the app for some old favorites. Relive beach memories past and plan for beach memories future.

Pro Tip: Freeze your fruit overnight for a refreshing beach treat!


Toys & Towels

When the kids are running back and forth from the pool to the beach to the hotel room, you’ll need two things: toys and towels. The towels can come in handy for a sunny, sweet beachside nap.

Beach Reading

Books or magazines, take your pick! Pick up that novel that has been collecting dust, waiting on you to pick it up off the night stand. If you forget a book, you can make a special request in the app for your shopper to pick up your favorite magazine at the check-out line!


This is the one you CAN’T forget! As long as you have your phone with you, you can order whatever you forgot, all while relaxing in a beach chair.

We, at HQ, can’t wait to make it down to beach this year, and we’re just as excited to go along with you! Be on the lookout for a category dedicated for your next beach trip in the app soon!
