5 Must-Have Summer Items

My favorite season is here! Summer officially begins this Sunday, June 20, and I’m kicking off the season with a three day weekend in Lexington, MI. It will be so nice to get away and celebrate my hubby’s June 21 birthday. Seems crazy that he will be 51 and I’m going to be 50 next year! As they say, time flies when you are having fun.

This summer maybe unlike others for many of us who have cancelled trips due to COVID. Many people are finding ways to staycation or travel close to home. After cancelling our trip to the Grand Canyon, we’ve decided to take a few long weekends within driving distance. No matter what you’re plans, I hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer.

To help you kick off summer, I’ve come up with a list of 5 must-have summer items. I think you will find this list valuable for home or travel.

5 Must-Have Summer Items 

  • Zero Gravity Chairs – When it comes to comfort, zero gravity chairs cradle your spine in a stress-free position. These chairs can be enjoyed at home or easy folded for camping, the beach, pool, or anywhere else. This duel set is a great deal and each chair comes with a cup holder.
  • Water Toys – Water toys have already been a big hit this spring! People are buying pools, sprinklers, and other fun items to entertain the kids while keeping them cool. Amazon is a great source for finding these items. My advice…if you find an item in stock, grab it right away (they are going quick).

  • Fire Pit – Many of my friends have invested in a fire pit to enjoy while staying at home. I’ll have to admit, my hubby and I are also considering one. Bonfires provide warmth on a chilly night, but what I enjoy most is the relaxation I feel when sitting around it. Roast some marshmallows, gather with friends, or just enjoy some good old family time around your own fire pit. 
  • Sun Hats – As you enjoy summer, be sure to protect your skin and eyes. A sun hat provides protection for both and many are very fashionable. Check out Amazon for sun hats for the entire family! My favorite sun hats are the ones that roll-up because they store easy and are good for travel.

  • Flip Flops – A good pair of comfortable flip flops is a must (in my opinion). I have two pairs of these CROC flip flops and they were comfortable from day one. Find these and other flip flops on Amazon.

  • Great list! I got some excellent new flip flops for my birthday. My daughter said they found them at Sam’s Club. And thanks for the reminder for fire supplies – our fire pit is cleaned out and ready to go, but we need some marshmallow sticks! I saw some at Meijer last time I was out…hope there are still some left! Enjoy your weekend getaway 🙂
