Why Sun-Protective Clothing as a Gift
What's better than giving your loved ones the gift of sun protection? Your gift will keep them protected from UVA and UVB rays which cause skin aging and skin cancer. Plus, UPF clothing has come a long way and is stylish, fashionable, and very versatile now, making it the perfect birthday or Christmas gift.
Here are some of the other reasons we think it's a great idea to gift your loved ones UPF clothing/swimwear this season:
- Versatile (sun protection in clothing - what a combination!)
- High-quality (long-lasting)
Best Sun-Protective Clothing Gifts for Babies and Toddlers
This list is for your pregnant friend or the new mom to be in your family, friend group, or neighborhood. You want to make sure you get the best, most protective UPF clothing for babies as their skin is more sensitive.
We suggest clothing and swimwear that's rated UPF 50+, which The Skin Cancer Foundation calls "excellent coverage". We also recommend finding sun protective clothing and swimwear that's comfortable, easy to take on and off (especially when wet), and breathable.
Here are some of our favorite suggestions for sun-protective clothing and swimwear gifts for babies ages 3 months up to 2 years old:

Best Sun-Protective Clothing for Men
Keep the men you love protected from the sun all year round with UPF clothing and swimwear. Let's face it, the men in your life often forget to wear sunscreen or cover up while outside!
Gift them sun protective clothing so they don't even need to think twice about sun protection (although we still want them to wear sunscreen too!). Remember to find items of clothing that are comfortable, easy to layer with, and stylish too.
