Next time you’re packing for your journey of a thousand steps, include a few items that are intended to increase the fun factor of an already pleasurable undertaking.
It’s always five o’clock somewhere, which is why you need the Drink Purse ($45) from Primeware. Fashionable in faux leather or sustainable cork with faux leather handles, these eco-friendly bags have a secret: An included disposable beverage bag with VITOP tap (nozzle dispenser) lines up with a cleverly concealed opening on the bag’s exterior so you can pour your favorite adult beverage right from your bag – and no one will be the wiser.
The bag has a fully lined thermal-insulated interior and the dispenser spout features a leak-proof and air-locked valve. Fill up the baggie and tuck it inside Drink Bag, zip it closed and adjust the included shoulder strap to your comfort. You’re ready to party. Refillable Baggies, sold two per set, can be reused with a thorough washing in hot soapy water, then rinsed and hung upside-down to dry.
Whether planning a day on your favorite beach in Mexico (margaritas, anyone?) or an evening of stargazing while camping in the wilds (nightcaps on tap), the Drink Purse adds beverage bravado to the occasion. www.primewareinc.com
In anticipation of life’s little annoyances that get in the way of a good time – i.e. what could possibly go wrong on an outing to the beach? – AAACK! Packs has the answers.
These super handy packs come preloaded with an assortment of items typically forgotten but generally needed. In the case of the Beach Pack ($54.35), that means eye drops, lip balm, sunscreen, aloe, pain reliever, bandage/antibiotic and more. Best of all, beach-goers and other travelers have the option of customizing their packs by replacing/adding other items before heading to AAACK! Packs’ online checkout.
For instance, among the necessities included in the Honeymoon Pack ($73.10) are ear plugs, breath mints, vitamins and condoms. But you have the option of adding sundries like a bottle opener or 5-hour ENERGY shot. The Executive Travel Pack ($51.95) comes equipped with Tide To Go Stain Remover Pen, Downy Wrinkle Releaser, Airborne Tablets and Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer, among other essentials, but you can also opt for a Kleenex Go Pack. www.aaackpacks.com
