3. Waterproof Phone Case
Where has this been all of my life? I absolutely love this idea for the water park, where otherwise it’s impossible to carry your phone around. It even has a strap to keep it safely around your wrist or attached to a loop in your pocket. It is also a universal size that’s made to fit just about every smart phone, even the iPhone 6 plus. But the best part– you can pick one up here on Amazon for less than $10! Sounds like a deal to me.
4. Slushy Maker
You can turn any liquid into a slushy in no time. Store the cup in your freezer until the gel inside the walls of the cup is frozen, pour any liquid into the cup, and stir it up. That’s it! The longer it’s in there, the slushier it gets. Great for making healthy summer snacks for the kids or refreshing frozen cocktails for adults.
5. Spiked Drink Holders
If you’re a beach bum, these spiked drink holders are a must-have! Simply poke them into the sand to hold your drinks and other items to keep the sand off. They come in a pack of 6 for about $35– not bad!
6. Inflatable Serving Bar
I’m pretty sure this idea started with a small inflatable pool that was used as a large ice chest (brilliant!), only this inflatable serving bar is made in the perfect shape to fit on top of a table, and is made with a convenient drain valve for when you’re finished.
7. Flip & Float Pool Lounger
The beauty behind this pool lounger is that it never needs inflating! I’ve gone through too many pool floats that only last one summer to ever buy those cheap blow-up floats ever again. I like how you can use this one to lay down, lounge, or sit up in the water.
8. BBQ S’mores Maker
Because everything tastes better on the grill! You can also use this BBQ S’mores Maker in the oven or even toaster oven. Now you don’t have to wait to have a campfire to enjoy the ooey gooey mess.
9. Floating Ping Pong Table
Just when you thought ping pong couldn’t get any better– now you can play it in the pool! The board seems quite a bit smaller than a traditional table, so it would take some time to get use to, but I’m up for the challenge. You can also use this floating ping pong table out of the water in the colder months.
10. Watermelon Keg Kit
A summer party isn’t complete without a watermelon keg! This kit makes it easy to turn a hollowed out watermelon or pumpkin into a drink dispenser for punch or cocktails. Now, all you have to do is find a watermelon with a flat enough bottom to stand on it’s own.
This is obviously the most amazing invention since the light bulb. I can think of at least a dozen times when this would have been a game changer– tailgating, camping, concerts, tubing, picnics, etc. It fits an entire bottle of wine, but works for other drinks, too. Pick up a few here on Amazon.
12. The Comfiest Way To Lounge
These patio lounge chairs are comfy, modern and made for the outdoors! They’re versatile enough to not only be the comfiest way to layout by pool all day, but you can also use them on the patio as extra seating during an evening barbeque, summer movie or summertime campfire. Check them out here.
