    3. These freezer sticks will keep your beers drool-worthily cool for you – just place them in the freezer for 30 minutes before you use 'em.

    4. I'm not saying you would get caught off-guard by a heatwave and end up sunburned. I'm just saying that if you did, this soothing aftersun solution from Malibu would have your back (literally).

    26. This ice cream maker will give you a sweet treat to eat when it's hot outside.

    27. The only part of this (low-key genius) pool you'll have to inflate is the top ring – the rest assembles itself when you add water.

    38. This cooling neck wrap is incredibly refreshing.

    39. These satin pillowcases are much more refreshing than their cotton counterparts (and it doesn't hurt that they're kinder to your skin and hair, too).
