A tie-dye lounge set, because it seems like everyone on your IG feed has one. This one is under 30 bucks and features shorts, not sweats, so it’s perf for staying cool for the summer.
Fine-tip flamingo gel pens that have the ~write~ stuff to bring a tropical touch to your work-from-home setup, even though you’re stuck typing at your kitchen table instead of on an island getaway.
A ginormous and hilarious cat face pool float ready to ~whisker~ you away to a tropical paradise.
Or an amazing avocado float that comes with a removable pit that doubles as a beach ball. ~Guac~ about combining form and function.
Chic, under-$15 sunglasses with over 2,000 5-star reviews that some folks say are comparable to a certain brand that rhymes with Shmay-Span.
A large glittery hair clip to make even your messiest summer ‘do Zoom call-ready and easily accessorize a breezy sundress.
Throw Throw Burrito, a card game you can play indoors or out that, yes, involves throwing squishy burritos at each other. It also feels like a healthy way to relieve some of the frustrations your fam has after being cooped up with each other for the past four months.
A giant squishy whale shark plush for anyone who knows that the world’s largest fish is also the world’s cutest. Like, it’s krilling me how adorable it is.

Bold bow slide sandals that are approximately 1,247 times more stylish but just as easy as your go-to flip-flops.
A velvety soft Pusheen blanket so you can curl up in your overly air conditioned house and still feel cute and summery.
A truly genius corn on the cob-buttering knife that’ll make enjoying the single best summer food (don’t @ me) way less of a mess. Also, imperfect butter-to-corn ratio is one of my biggest BBQ pet peeves, so I’d be very glad to kiss that goodbye.
A whimsical panda water blaster both kiddos and adults will enjoy using to create pool or backyard panda-monium.
Clever and adorable fold-up fish grocery totes that can be rolled up into pocket-size guppies for a bit of nautical nonsense on errand runs long after Labor Day.
