Summer is now well underway, but many of us have already been feeling the heat for a while now.
If you want to cool off, cook out or chill out, here are nine great products to help you make the most of the summer season!
This water bottle will definitely inspire you to stay hydrated this summer. Check it out: It makes fruit- or herb-infused water, and keeps it cold for up to 24 hours. (Also worth mentioning: It will keep your drink hot for up to 12 hours -- so even though that might sound less than appealing through these hot summer months, just keep in mind that you won’t have to retire the bottle come winter). We love the look, feel and easy-sip lid.
Summertime goes hand in hand with grilling, does it not? There’s nothing better on a hot day than knowing you can toss some chicken or burgers on the grill, which will let you avoid the oven, and sometimes, your kitchen entirely. Barbecuing is fun and easy -- and it usually starts with a little meal preparation; slicing and dicing vegetables for kabobs or breaking down ribs to slather in sticky sauce. Why not invest in some truly quality knives, which will make your life THAT much easier this summer? We love this bundle from Pacific67.
There are a million reasons why you’d want lots of ice on hand this summer -- for your soft drinks, your hard drinks, perhaps to keep seafood cold if you’re having people over, not to mention for making smoothies and ice cream. Maybe you feel like you can never keep up when it comes to your ice trays. Maybe you still don’t have a fridge that can make it for you. Or perhaps you’d like a convenient system for camping or when you’re out in the RV. Enter this ice-maker machine. A batch of nine bullet-shaped ice cubes will be ready in as little as 7-13 minutes. So cool, right?
If all this nice weather makes you want to get out there and hit the golf course, then you’ll want to make sure your game is sharp and ready to go. This putting simulator should help; it’s pretty high-tech. It comes with practice and play modes, and can read all sorts of metrics. You’ll be sinking putts and impressing your friends in no time.
If all that grilling talk earlier made you think about the messes that can sometimes accompany a barbecue, then we have the perfect product for you: A two-pack of these grilling sheets, which can also be used for the oven, and they’ll keep your food and scraps contained. Designed with a nonstick, heat-resistant finish, this sheet saves you the hassle of scraping and scouring burnt-on grease and other grill messes when you cook. Never see another piece of meat slip through the grill -- and avoid those nasty fire flare-ups from when your sauces drip over. Game-changer!
This thing speaks for itself: A personal AC unit? Say no more.
If you’ve ever hesitated to buy a tent, or wondered which would be right for you, then we’ve got you covered. For a small family or couple, this one comes with the works: two doors for easy entrance, two mesh windows for good air ventilation, four sides with meshes, which will prevent mosquitoes from coming in, and it’s durable. Once you snag this tent, camping can officially go onto your summer to-do list, and you can thank us later.
Whether you’re entertaining company this summer or just want somewhere to lounge with your immediate family, we love this six-piece outdoor furniture set. It looks stylish, sleek and minimalistic -- while still remaining modern and cool. It would match most backyards, and you get a lot of bang for your buck on this one (we’re talking two loveseats, one corner sofa, one table and two ottomans).
One final cooking/BBQ item, we promise! This wireless meat thermometer will guarantee your food turns out perfectly, every time.
Listen to this sorcery: “(It’s) equipped with sophisticated algorithms to calculate the remaining time until the meat is perfectly ready to eat. Its dual temperature sensors monitor both the ambient and internal temperature of the meat. Monitor your cook on the go, using a smartphone or tablet with access to the MeatStick app. The built-in Bluetooth signal repeater extends the wireless range of up to 260 feet.”
