Omar Seluj Sunglasses

There are parts of Australia where cloud sightings are a rare occurrence, so it's little wonder that when it comes to anything ray-related, the Aussies really know their stuff. That's why we're so psyched that these rad sunglasses by Oz brand Omar Seluj have arrived on our shores.

Two friends from Down Under spent five years developing their line of unisex shades. The spring-hinge design enables the acetate frames to mold to your face, and with nylon UV 400 lenses, they provide legit eye protection. The frames have luxury touches like gold, wood, or leather detailing. Style and substance? Mate, they're just what we've been looking for.

Black + Blum Hot-Pot BBQ

What's that hiding beneath that handsome herb garden of yours? Oh, you know, just a super-secret undercover charcoal grill.

The Black + Blum Hot-Pot BBQ ($124) is a genius contribution to the world of space-saving appliances. Pulling the top off this terra-cotta pot reveals a stainless steel grill underneath. At about 15 inches wide and 11 inches high, it's big enough to cook up kebabs for friends but compact enough to transport to a vacation home, campsite, or (very grown-up) tailgate. How's that for multipurpose?

The combo of sea and sand can play havoc with a fancy camera, so it's little wonder that many of us don't pack that pricey piece of gear for a day at the beach. But things are looking up, sunseeker: The new Underwater Digi Cam is about to become as essential to your summer as a high-SPF sunscreen.

The shock-resistant casing lets you throw this camera into your beach bag with abandon (it has a plastic lens, it can take it). Plus, it's waterproof down to 100 feet. It's as simple (point, shoot, done) as it is affordable ($35), and there's enough memory for 75 photos--or two minutes of video--to capture the mellow bliss of your day by the sea...and in it.

Paper Boat Lighthouse Schnapps Set

You've scored an invite to a friend's beach house, but you can't show up empty-handed. It's time to do like your mama taught you and find a hostess gift. We suggest avoiding the tired old bottle of wine and instead opting for this nautical schnapps set ($29.95).

The mod stoneware carafe--designed like a New England lighthouse--is perfect for holding the chilled liquor of your choice. And the handblown glasses that stack on top gleam as blue as the sea. When it comes to getting invited back next year, we're pretty sure you'll find this little beacon to be a lifesaver.

LAYERxlayer Wayfarer Bag

In an increasingly complex world, it's good to hold onto the simpler things in life. Which is why we like the natural materials and timeless design of the LAYERxlayer Wayfarer backpack ($199). It's handmade with heavy-duty cotton denim to stand the test of time, stainless-steel strap adjusters, and rope ends dipped in beeswax to prevent fraying.

This little workhorse has a rope system perfect for lashing on a sweater when you fly over the pond or for toting a picnic blanket just for sitting by one. Inside, you've got multiple pockets and dedicated space for a journal and pen (forget your iPad, we're going old-school).
