7 Unique Products That Make You Feel The Summer

Most products are not weather or season dependent. The ones below aren’t essential, but they each excel at promoting summer activities. Because of the longer sunshine in the evening, there is more time to be out on the water or to play catch in the park. Summertime products are those that take advantage of the season and what it has to offer.

Sunglasses that are hard to break and lose will help you spend more time outside enjoying the fresh air. A ball that you don’t need gloves to catch and a blanket specifically designed to keep bugs away will do as well. These are some of the products that are perfectly suited for hot, humid days. As always, listed prices may fluctuate over time.

Homesick MLB Collection

With Homesick’s new MLB collection, you can add the scent of select MLB stadiums to your home.
unhappy being out of the house

Homesick candles began as a way to tap into the scent of cities and states. They can provide a familiar scent when you can’t be in the place you want to be. Homesick’s new MLB collection expands on the experience and could get you into the ballpark. Currently, the company is offering scented candles like Dodger Stadium, Busch Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Oracle Park and Wrigley Field, at its estimation.

In case you’re curious, Homesick lists its Yankee Stadium candle as smelling like milkshake, churro, cement, brown sugar, tonka beans, leather clay, and red clay. Its candle scent can be a great way to amplify a radio broadcast when you can’t make it to a game.

Yardball is like baseball that you don’t need gloves to catch.

The reason behind the creation of the yardball was to have a baseball that you don’t need gloves to catch with. To that end, its size, weight and material have all been adjusted from traditional hardballs so that the yardball can be used anywhere and whenever.

I’ve used yardball with my son to play catch in the park, and it’s been great. It has a soft top layer so it doesn’t hurt to hold it in your bare hands. It has been a ball that we have been able to pick up and use at the moment. Pack the yardball for picnics, use it in the backyard or simply toss it (carefully) around the living room.

Outdoor Bug Shield Throw Blanket

Outdoor Bug Blanket
The Outer Bug Shield Throw Blanket wards off insects and keeps you warm at the same time.

Outer’s Bud Shield Throw Blanket just might be one of the best ways to stay warm on a late summer night. The blanket is treated with the company’s Insect Shield technology to repel things like mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, flies, and ants, among other pests. So, the blanket you were going to use on the patio can now be your savior against bugs. Outer says the repellent technology “has the lowest risk rating by the EPA, and has been approved for use by pregnant women, children, and pets.”

The Bug Shield Throw Blanket’s style is eye-catching and should be big enough to share. The throw comes in a 50-inch by 60-inch version or a 60-inch x 80-inch version with a slightly different pattern of each.

oppop pickle monster popcorn

Oppop Pickle Monster
Oppop’s new Pickle Monster popcorn flavor has a subtle dill flavor.

Looking for a unique summer breakfast? OPOPOP’s new Pickle Monster Popcorn is a delicious treat. I love pickles, but the first time I made a batch in Ooppop’s microwavable bowls I was a little hesitant. The smell was strong upon opening the bag, but the taste was much more subtle. Even if pickles aren’t usually a part of your cravings, as long as you like dill, I’d recommend giving it a chance. The flavor is listed as a limited edition, so if you’re curious you might want to try it out as soon as possible.

Distill Noiset sunglasses have a magnet in the stems to lock them securely onto shirts and hats.

Distill’s Noiset sunglasses don’t seem noticeable. In fact, his classic immaculate style is one of the things I love most about him. Beneath their approachable design are a few neat tricks to make them more useful than other similar glasses. For one, they incorporate magnets hidden in the stems so they lock securely when you hang them from a shirt or hat. The sunglasses are also fully bendable and flexible—enough to avoid snapping or breaking.

I specifically took the Distill Nosette sunglasses with me on vacation because I didn’t want to worry about breaking or losing them. However, the distillery does not seem to be held responsible for theft by a member of your family. My wife liked them so much that she took them and has been wearing them ever since.

yeti roadie 48

Yeti Roadie 48
The Yeti Roadie 48 is the company’s latest cooler. It has wheels and a telescoping handle for easy maneuverability.

Keeping a cooler full of drinks and food benefits a trip to the beach or national parks. While Yeti makes great coolers, my current favorite is the new Yeti Roadie 48. Its special feature is its wheels and telescoping handle. I really like the size and shape of the cooler, which gives it plenty of capacity, but even better is the smooth rolling wheel. Once the Yeti is filled with ice and drank, it becomes heavy. But it doesn’t require many people to carry the Roadie 48 around.

Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0

Solo Stove Bonfire Fire Pita
The new Solo Stove Fire Pit 2.0 includes a removable ashtray for easy cleaning.
single stove

The solo stove rose to prominence due to its smokeless fire pit. You get all the benefits of a wood-burning pit, but without all the smoke because of its 360-degree airflow technology. Roasting marshmallows, cooking or simply chatting around a fire is more enjoyable without the bilberry haze.

Now, the company is releasing Bonfire 2.0. The new product is similar to the first generation Bonfire, but with one major upgrade: a removable ashtray. Instead of needing to take over the entire firepit to take out the ash, it is now collected in a small removable tray that is much easier to manage. The new Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 also comes in the smaller Ranger size and the larger Yukon size. All existing accessories will also fit on the new model.
