While you need to pack all the essentials for vacation, it's the extras that can really make downtime fun — like this retro-style beach radio. It comes in bright cherry red (plucked straight from a Slim Aarons photo) and its portable design makes it easy to grab and go — all you need to do is plug in your phone and you'll be the official poolside DJ. All that's left to do is make the perfect playlist.
