We’ve been waiting all years and it’s finally here: Summer. And with the season change, comes some needed seasonal items to keep cool, protect your skin from harmful rays, learn a new hobby or hang by the pool. Or whatever else you get up to.
Amazon’s Prime Day is approaching — from July 12-13, 2022 — and you can expect to snag some great deals on all the summer items you need. If you’re new to Prime Day, it is Amazon’s annual two-day-long sale held exclusively for Prime members. During the 48-hour event, prices are dramatically slashed across the site in various categories. Including summer items.
If you’re looking for some summer must-haves, make sure to make your wishlist now, before the sale. Gimme has got you covered with these eight summer items from Amazon that our editors swear by.
Have Fun In The Sun With Summer Items From Amazon
1. A Portable Speaker
You’ll thank us later. Whether you’re looking for something small and compact or something with a bit more power, a portable speaker by the pool or at the beach is always a good idea.
The DOSS Wireless Portable is our favorite. Affordable, and it comes in fun colors.
2. A Fun Pool Float
There is nothing more fun than a pool float shaped like a flamingo, an ice cream cone or a unicorn. In our personal opinion, something outrageous and over-the-top just adds to the summer fun.
3. A Great Beach Towel.
There is no denying that a summer beach towel is a must. And luckily, Amazon has a wide selection of beach towels available.
Whether you’re looking for something absorbent or something with a fun design, there’s sure to be a towel that’s perfect for you.
This nautical set caught our eye.
4. A Good Book (or two).
Whether you’re on a staycation, or on a beach somewhere, a book is always a good idea.
If you’re looking for something empowering, try Untamed by Glennon Doyle. If you’re into a thriller that will keep you on your toes, you’re sure to lose yourself in Dead Drift by Kelly Romo. For the poetry lover, Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur is an oldie but a goodie.
5. A Great Pair of Sunglasses
What is summer without a great pair of shades? Luckily, Amazon has a ton of great options to choose from, and you can find them at a range of price points. Whether you’re looking for a splurge or something more budget-friendly, there’s sure to be a pair that’s perfect for you.
Our favorites? Spotted Brown Havana Ray Bans.
6. A Comfy Pair of Sandals
When it comes to summer shoes, you’ll want something that’s easy to slip on and off, but also provides good support.
Take your time to find the perfect pair for you, but these are our favorite pair we’ve found. They’re super cute, and affordable, too.
7. A Fantastic Sunscreen
No matter what time of year, sunscreen should be your best friend. We swear by this La Roche-Posay Sunscreen. It’s a bit expensive for sunscreen, but it doesn’t streak, smell or feel oily. It’s actually great for your skin. As it should be.
And you can use it on your face and body.
8. A Cute Sundress.
Amazon has a ton of great sundresses to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for you.
