1.A Takeya cold brew maker so you can drink your favorite caffeinated beverage whenever you please without the $5+ charge (NYC coffee = so damn expensive). This is cleverly designed with an airtight lid and stainless-steel filter to keep coffee fresh for up to two weeks.
2.Sanuk flip flops with a cushioning that mimics yoga mat material, aka these babies are really 👏 darn 👏 comfy 👏. Plus, reviewers swear that they last forever — even with constant wear.
3.A retro-inspired halter one-piece so fabulous, it's inspired 4,000 glowing reviews. World, say hello to a swimsuit worthy of its own Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants spinoff. This thing is truly loved by everyone.
4.An OXO cocktail shaker to ~shake up~ your at-home mixologist game. This design, with its jigger lid and double-walled insulation, makes it easy to master your favorite summer cocktails. *immediately envisions a margarita*
5.A stainless-steel slicer so that you can cut up your 🍉 favorite fruit 🍉 without googling "how to properly cut a watermelon." This one tool cuts up perfectly symmetrical watermelon cubes every use, saving you tons of time and several tears shed.
6.A portable Kodak projector to turn any blank wall into a personal home theater. This little gadget lets you watch shows, films, and YouTube videos with integrated Airplay (and a USB slot and HDMI cable for connecting), plus it can be connected to an external speaker *and* has its own built-in speaker.
7.A game of cornhole to turn up the competition at your family's next backyard shindig. This set is fab if you have limited storage space: both "boards" are collapsible and fit easily into the provided storage bag.
8.Outdoor string lights that can zhuzh up any setting and make it romantic. Simply throw this on above your gross outdoor seating area and you've got yourself a patio worthy of Instagram posts and Pinterest saves. Joanna Gaines, I hear you're hiring?
9.A pair of anti-chafing bands to prevent the painful rubbing together of your thighs — the dreaded result of wearing summer dresses and skirts. These bands are comfortable, stay put, are available in solid and lace designs (#meow), and can even be worn during your morning run.
10.A Coleman pressure-activated mat that stays up to 10° cooler than room temperature. This prevents your pup from feeling overheated (cue panting), keeps 'em extra comfy on hot summer days, and can even be used outdoors.
11.A V-neck wrap dress meant for great things. And when I say "meant for great things," I mean this will officially become your new go-to article of clothing when you don't know what else to wear this summer.
12.A daily SPF 35 sunscreen bound to become your skincare holy grail. This water-gel formula is hypoallergenic, cruelty-free, vegan, works well under makeup, doesn't leave your forehead looking like a vat of grease, *and* it won't leave behind a white cast.
13.A cool-to-the-touch comforter that deserves a standing ovation from hot sleepers. Temp-regulating technology and a 100% eucalyptus shell means you *won't* wake up drenched in sweat, plus you can wave those 3 a.m. "If I have one leg outside of the comforter...." thoughts goodbye. No more overheating.
14.A Garnier gel-cream moisturizer with a favorite four-letter word: COOL. Pop this refreshing formula (it's packed with vitamin C and a fruit water antioxidant complex) into the fridge before applying and prepare to feel as if you've just bitten into a York Peppermint Pattie.
15.A sheer kimono you can drape on over a bathing suit or wear as a lightweight cardigan. Your wardrobe (and all the outfit possibilities that lie ahead) will know no bounds.
16.A leak-proof champagne stopper to keep your favorite beverage as fizzy as the day it was popped. This built-in pressure pump preserves bubbles and therefore preserves champagne, meaning it won't go to waste if you don't finish an entire bottle the day it's opened. Now without further ado, can I get an ice cold mimosa please?
17.A BPA-free Nalgene water bottle with a screw-top lid, dishwasher-safe plastic, and etched-in measurements that let you keep track of exactly how much water you've sipped. This acts as a subtle reminder to stay hydrated, folks.
18.A swing chair that turns any backyard into a vacation-like oasis. Picture it: a good book, your morning coffee, and a citronella candle burning to ward off the mosquitoes. Bliss, am I right?
19.A V-neck maxi dress for an easy, breezy, ~doesn't require pants~ outfit you'll want to slip on for and and every occasion. This is comfy enough to lounge in, stylish enough to picnic in. Cue Hannah Montana because 'tis the best of both worlds.
20.A jar of Gran's Remedy odor eliminator, because sweaty feet (and *ahem* the delicious smells they cause) are the bane of my existence come summer. Sprinkle this peppermint oil cooling powder into your shoes for seven consecutive days and it'll leave your feet, socks, and shoes smelling fresh for up to six months.
21.A stainless-steel corer that turns cutting up pineapple into a much less intimidating experience. It's foolproof: Cut off the top of the fruit, twist the corer inside, then pull it out. Delicious, spiral-cut pineapple is yours — minimal effort required, several frustrated tears saved.
22.A Vanicream lip balm to keep your pout protected from the ☀️. This contains broad spectrum SPF30 and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, meaning sunburnt lips? A problem of the past.
23.A Sun Bum leave-in spray that enlists the hydrating benefits of coconut and sunflower seed oil to give hair what it needs this right this second: MOISTURE. Not only will this counteract the drying effects of sun and chlorine, but it even works as a lightweight de-tangler to help your brush glide right through each thin strand.
24.A machine-washable mat towel, because nothing says "I'm never doing yoga again" quite like your sweaty hands sliding down your sweaty mat to ruin what little stability you have in downward dog. If you know, you know.
25.A handmade candle that is basically summer in soy form. This coconut and lime combo will remind you of beach days, salty hair, and the feel of being outdoors — even if you're stuck in your home office attending a meeting that could have been an email.
26.Charcoal oil blotters for quickly and conveniently removing the grease that's taken residence on your T-zone. These inexpensive sheets are safe for acne-prone complexions, plus they don't ruin your makeup in the process.
27.A plant-derived BodyGlide anti-blister balm to stop blisters from forming (#duh), as well preventing back-of-heel chafing that would otherwise turn your new sandals into a painful, bloody mess.

30.A SodaStream that makes it easy to DIY your own refreshing carbonated beverage. This turns flat water fizzy in just a few seconds, saving you a) *all* the money you'd typically spend on seltzer, and b) prevents you from wasting a ton of plastic. All in all, a total win.
31.Non-toxic Each & Every deodorant free of aluminum *and* baking soda. Instead, essential oil blends are used to combat BO with a vengeance: think scents like coconut and lime, lavender and lemon, rose and vanilla, and more.
32.A cooling towel that does exactly what the name implies — it cools you down. Simply soak this in cold water (it feels delightful post-workout), wring out the excess H2O, drape it around your neck, and voila! *sweat immediately begins to subside*
33.Unisex aviator and cat-eye sunglasses — both of which block the shade, add trendiness to any outfit, and (most importantly) don't cost a small fortune. Lose them? Break them? Scratch them? The loss won't feel quite as significant.
34.A steel-belted, 54-quart Coleman cooler that holds up to 85 cans, ice will *remain* ice for up to four days in 90-degree temps, there's a built-in bottle opener, plus this is designed with rust-resistant hardware. This, my friends, is le cream of the cooler crop.
35.Tend solution because ingrown hairs and razor bumps are truly the ~pits~. Simply spread this lotion on before waxing or shaving (and yes, it's safe for the bikini area — I know that's the question haunting your pretty little mind) and POOF! No skin irritation or bumps.
36.Paul Mitchell shampoo to reverse the havoc that swimming pools have on your hair. This removes chlorine remnants and other build-up from your tresses, but doesn't leave it scraggly and dried-out in the process — in fact, it strengthens each strand.
