"I'll pack my allergy meds and inhalers—I'm allergic to everything—my BlackBerry Bold, Kiehl's Lip Balm SPF 15, a huge beach towel, Havaianas, and a Gap hat.

My 5-year-old son, Wyeth, will need his Anakin Skywalker and R2-D2 action figures, along with an iPod Touch and Bose headphones so that he can watch The Clone Wars.

And Virginia, my wife, will be sure to throw in sunscreen (usually a Patricia Wexler M.D. cream) and Close, the new Gap women's fragrance I helped create. Its salty-citrus scent is light enough for the beach; I plan to wear it myself."

In the bag: Patrick fits his Gap hat, Havaianas, and Pottery Barn towel into this giant Gap tote. Also island bound: Gap Close, Wexler Universal Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 30, and Clarins Sunscreen for Children SPF 30.
