Summer time has always been one of my favorite times of year. I love everything about it (minus the bugs and humidity) and always try to enjoy every minute of it. Whether it’s going to the beach, hanging out by the pool, listening to music in the park or enjoying family and friends at a barbeque, there’s so much to love about the Summer.

Ever just want to lay out in your backyard with a good book on a nice day?

It would also make a great gift for someone else that enjoys the outdoors.
6. Personal Mosquito Repeller

As much as I love Summer, it’s the annoying mosquitos that can ruin all the fun. The Mosquito Repeller Bite Shield emits a geranium scent to drive those pesky biting insects away. You just clip this on your belt and turn it on when you are outside. It can also be used indoors to keep your immediate area bug-free.
7. Beach Ergo Lounger
Beach Ergo Lounger
One of my favorite beach activities is reading and resting while sunning. The Beach Ergo Lounger uses the massage chair concept of actually letting you lie face down, with its padded peek-thru face hole. It is specially engineered to alleviate stress on your neck or your back and has six reclining positions for fun at the beach, pool, or in your own backyard.
8. King Kai Pool Float
King Kai Pool Float
Here’s a swimming pool float that is comfortable enough to be used in or out of the water. It’s also large enough to accommodate up to two people. Unlike regular pool floats, the King Kai Pool Float is made with foam beads. Because of that, it doesn’t sit stiff like other floats; it adjusts to fit your form.
9. Convection Cooling Cantilever Umbrella

Now you can entertain outdoors in the Summer heat with the added comfort of shade to combat the scorching sun. The cantilever umbrella is made of breathable fabric that allows heat and humidity to escape through the canopy while blocking the sun and rain.
10. The Off Road Cooler Cart
Off Road Cooler Cart
Just getting to the beach can be a major ordeal when you have to lug all of the essentials like a beach umbrella, cooler, towels and beach chair. The Off Road Cooler Cart is a must-have item that easily transports all your beach gear across the sand. Just pile everything on and away you go. Despite its high hauling capacity, the cart weighs only 15 lbs. for convenient storage or transport in the trunk of a car. Love it!
