Even better, it provides UPF 50+ protection. So you can count on it as a safe shelter from the sun when you’re not in the water. Lightweight and easy to carry, the tent assembles in just 3 minutes.

3. A sleek and modern cold plunge bath

Stop carrying everyone’s surfboards, sand toys, coolers, etc., to the beach and pull them in the e-Beach Wagon motorized multi-terrain cart. An electric motorized multi-terrain vehicle, it runs at a variable speed and operates with a throttle and hand grip.

This one’s going to change the game for my family. Instead of lugging our beach essentials all the way from our condo to the beach, we can just pull them in this handy wagon.

6. A 24″ gas-powered pizza oven for gatherings

Treat your friends and family to summer pizza nights in the backyard when you have the Ooni Koda 2 Max gas-powered pizza oven. It flaunts a 24″ cooking area and is suitable for baking large pizzas or cooking foods side-by-side.

I appreciate the dual-zone cooking feature. It lets you cook pizzas or meat to your preferred level of doneness—so whether you prefer crisp or soft pies, you can have your pizza the way you like it.

7. Light-responsive prescription glasses

Get instant tint adjustment with the Ampere Dusk Rx light-responsive prescription glasses. Outfitted with electronic tint control, the lenses automatically adjust their tint in 0.1 seconds.

So you can have the ideal tent level, no matter the light. I also like the touch-control feature. To use it, press force sensors on the outside of the frame. It’ll toggle among preset tints.

Create frozen treats all summer long with the Ninja CREAMi Deluxe 11-in-1 ice cream & frozen treat maker. It churns out CREAMi Classics like ice cream, sorbet, and gelato. Plus, its new functionality includes Slushi, Creamiccino, Frozen Yogurt, and Frozen Drinks.
