15 Cool Things to Buy on Amazon for Summer NOW!

1. Burt's Bees Lip Balm with SPF

There is literally nothing worse than sunburned lips, and yet, every single summer, my lips get burned at least once! It's usually because I am lip balm obsessed but forget to grab the one with SPF. This Burt's Bees one has me covered and it's not tinted, or anything weird. Plus it comes in a 2 pack so you can share one with a kid or have one for your purse and one for your beach bag.

2. Cute 2-piece PJ shorts set

You are going to need something to keep you cool on those hot summer nights, and these are cute enough that you could even run out of the house in them if you wanted to!

3. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

I love music, and travel with a bluetooth speaker on most vacations. This one is under $10 and it's a heck of a deal! Plus it's super portable for the beach, pool or backyard!

4. Cold Cup Tumbler

I love a good cold drink and have personalized my cold cup tumblers {one of my most popular posts!}. I'm always impressed at how well they actually work {even the knock-off brands!} at keeping drinks cold. This cup is $15 and it's cute!

5. Unbreakable Wine Glasses

These unbreakable wine glasses come in a set of two for under $15. They are perfect for the backyard or for poolside when you see signs that say no glass allowed.

6.  Waterproof Phone Pouch

I was actually really surprised at how easy this waterproof phone pouch was to use last year on our trip to Hawaii. I used it underwater, on snorkeling trips, kayaking and in the pool. It's under $7 so it's a real steal!

7. Waterproof Beach Bag with Zipper

I like a good beach bag that can double as a carry on if I'm traveling to the beach. I want it to have a zipper so it can keep my contents inside cool and contained and double bonus points if it's waterproof. This one is around $20 and has all those things plus more!

8. Popsicle Molds

My mom used to make us homemade popsicles when I was a kid in these Tupperware molds, so nothing screams summer like a homemade juice pop for me. The possibilities are endless, but I like to freeze the extra smoothie that I make for the kids, and juice for myself. These molds make it easy.

Keep the sun out of your eyes and the rays off of your face with this cute beach hat! It's only $15!

10. Sea Salt Spray

I got this in a subscription box once and I love it! It's one of those things I'd totally buy again! It smells good and creates fun beach hair even if you aren't at the beach!

11. Oversized Beach Towel

Don't bring your bath towel to the beach or pool. Grab these oversized beach towels instead!

Is it even summer in 2019 if you don't have an animal-shaped pool float? Is it? This unicorn one will make all your friends jealous!

14. Soft-Sided Cooler with Strap

There is a lot to haul when you are spending time outside with your family. And people get hungry, it doesn't matter if you are staying for an hour or all day, this soft-sided cooler has you covered! It's big enough for a day's worth of meals for the family or for snacks for the morning. Plus it has a strap for easy carrying.

15. Hammock

This hammock is one of the best things we own! It packs up into a small bag and hangs easily between two trees. It was the perfect thing to take with us to Hawaii and it's been a lifesaver when we head out to the beach or the woods for the day. It's got everything you need for around $15!
