San Diego Magazine|Sun-worshipping is practically a lifestyle in San Diego, but to keep yourself protected from harmful UV rays, Australian company Lovin’ Summer has created a stylish way to stay shaded. Unlike cumbersome umbrellas, its compact beach tents—just nine pounds each—can be assembled by one person, and offer up to 10 square feet of shade. The lightweight fabric, a cotton-canvas material with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 40, comes in four patterns, with summery names like “South Beach” and “Santorini.” Best of all, the open design means those fresh-air breezes at the beach or park can come and go. $169 each; available at Cody’s Home + Gift in San Diego and Studio Fiore in Oceanside
