Just because we’re all still stuck at home this summer, doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the fresh air and warm weather. Whether your idea of a fun time is relaxing with a well-crafted drink in hand or playing games with family, we’ve come up with some of our favorite ways to enjoy a stay-home summer!
>>> Games >>> Heat Wave 3′ Mega Jumbling Tower
We’re all familiar with jumbling tower games, but we love this one for its colorful twist! Not only is it bright and rainbow, but it’s also made with mega-sized blocks for an even better tumble at the end!

>>> Music >>> TYKHO Bluetooth Speaker + FM Radio
What’s a great summer without some music? That’s where the TYKHO Bluetooth Speaker comes in. It’s easy to use, making it great to grab and take outside. Plus, its minimalist aesthetic looks great sitting between your patio chairs.
> Sun Protection >>> SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion
You’ve gotta stay protected when you’re out in the sun — that means everything from sunglasses to sunscreen. SALT & STONE’s lotion is our go-to this summer. It blocks UVA + UVB rays, it’s water resistant, and it’s not greasy, which is a huge bonus!

>>> Outdoor Furniture >>> Drum Table
Bend Goods has a creative, eye-catching collection of outdoor furniture. This table is just one of our favorites from it. An intricate wire pattern makes it into a simple shape that’s perfect for holding drinks, books, and a speaker.
>>> Lighting >>> Carrie Portable LED Lamp
One of our favorite parts of summer are late nights spent outside having good conversation. A portable lamp, like this LED one, is designed to go anywhere with you. That way you don’t have to go inside when the sun goes down.

>>> Drinks >>> Porter 15oz Glass
One essential for a stay-at-home summer is delicious drinks. W&P is always one of our go-tos for this because their products are portable, functional, and well designed. This 15oz Glass is perfect for a cocktail on a hot day — especially when you throw some ice from one of their molds in it.
>>> Barbecue Essentials >>> Essential BBQ Tool
When we think of a perfect summer day, one of the first things that comes to mind is barbecue. Izola’s Essential BBQ Tool is designed to be multi-functional, which is why it works as a spatula, fork, brush, corkscrew, and wine opener. You want this on hand whenever you’re standing at the grill.
