    1. A heavy-duty cooler so your drinks and snacks always stay cold, no matter how sweltering it is outside. It doubles as a nice place to sit, and let's face it, chilled drinks and sitting down are two of the greatest things about being alive.

    2. A lightweight cornhole set, because cornhole really has become America's true pastime. The people love it, yourself included, just admit it.

    3. A 5-gallon camp shower if the part of longer camping trips you tend to dread is being stinky. This solar bag may not hold a candle to your jets back home, but it's worth it for a few more days in the great outdoors!

    4. An inflatable kayak so you can enjoy the calm of open waters without all the heavy lugging and intense commitment of a traditional kayak.

    5. A good ole soccer ball — ya know — for kicking. Get out there and practice your rainbow, I think this is the year you're finally gonna get it!

    6. And a backyard soccer net — ya know — for kicking things into. I know you're 27 and haven't played soccer since high school, but I don't think it's too late for you to make the National team!

    7. String lights so you can transform your patio space into a private outdoor bistro. Nothing will get your booty outside faster than the hilarious and casually chic promise of dining al fresco.

    13. A Louisville Slugger pitching machine to help you perfect your baseball swing. Practice makes perfect and perfect makes your friends mad they ever agreed to play against you in the first place because you're just too good.

    14. Some ridiculously strong spray-on sunscreen, because it's SO much easier to convince yourself to head into the great outdoors if you're 100% sure you won't return looking like a lobster.

    15. Or a tinted mineral facial sunscreen that's less intense but will be an essential part of your morning routine and is super wearable. Suncare is skincare!

    16. A mesh camping chair so you can post up anywhere outdoors that just looks right. See a dope tree? Sit the heck down. Stumble upon a rolling meadow? Plop your tush down and take it all in!

    19. A Spikeball set so you can absolutely own your friends in one of the 🔥hottest🔥 new yard games.

    20. A horseshoe set made of rubber so you can play the classic game without the clanking and potential for a broken foot. These are heavy enough to throw well, but, unlike the regular sets, not SO heavy you have to be a professional weightlifter to play more than one game.

    28. A hammock chair so even without a wealth of trees around you can still get that sweet, swingy hammock feeling. It also folds down and comes with a bag, making it the perfect plus-one for sports games, park hangs, and other outdoor fun!

    29. A set of adjustable trekking poles that can seriously help you when it comes to steep hikes. I used to be doubtful, but I'm here to testify that both going up and coming back down inclines is made SO much easier with a pair of trekking poles — especially ones with cork handles, which are definitely more comfortable than plastic when your hands inevitably get sweaty.

    30. A 12-piece cooking set with a stove to give you all the tools you need to make a super tasty camp meal at your disposal in an easily packable pouch.

    31. And a first aid kit, because adventuring in the outdoors is all the more fun when you have the peace of mind that you have all the tools you need in case of injury.
