Shopkeeper Sound Off: Top Five Beach House Must-Haves

Is the summer house looking a little bare? The Elegant Setting's Stephanie Finkelstein runs through the top five items every beach house needs.

Embroidered Beach Towels— No beach house is complete without fabulous beach towels. These embroidered striped "beach" towels are 100% cotton terry and come in six colors.

Zip Code Pads—It's all about which Hamptons zip code your beach house is in, so these notepads are the perfect accessory for your beach house. Leave them by the phone or on the counter to jot down the details for that last minute invite for a happening Hamptons party.

Embroidered Linen Cocktail Napkins—Impress your guests with these custom embroidered cocktail napkins for your next dinner party. Have them embroidered with your beach house name, "beach house" or one of the cool summery icons such as a lobster, crab or starfish for an elegant and summery touch to your table.

Sunblock Travel Bag—Since a lot of your time at your beach house is spent enjoying the summer sun at Hamptons beaches, stock up on sunblock to avoid those nasty summer sunburns. This great sunblock bag offers a stylish and practical way to store your different SPFs. Throw the bag in your beach bag and never be left unprotected in the sun.

Peace Sign Tote— Keep it green at your beach house with this peace tote which offers several uses from beach bag to shopping bag. Show off your affection for the planet, while heading out to the beach or picking up some dinner ingredients at Citarella.

All beach house must-haves are available online at or at The Elegant Setting in Southampton.
