25 Most Loved Summer Finds from Amazon

We’ve been in full summer mode over here… knocking out house projects on weekends, landscaping, enjoying seasonal foods, gardening, hosting & entertaining on the patio, and spending time outdoors, camping and boating… before it becomes unbearably hot here in Utah. Recently, some of my local friends have asked me to share where a handful of my summer things came from. I thought a list of my must-haves and most loved summer items may also be a fun read for the blog. All of these are my tried & true home, outdoor, and summer essentials I own and love from Amazon. I can vouch for these and say they’ll be lasting summer favorites you can enjoy year after year. Click through for my top 25!

Honestly, one of my favorite things is sorting through a sea of junk to find the really good stuff. It’s a little like thrifting. I think that’s why I thoroughly enjoy curating my Amazon storefront. You might also want to check out my 50 Classic Kitchen Essentials from Amazon, or my Outdoor Living & Decor Finds from Amazon. I hope these type of quick scroll posts are both interesting and helpful! I’ve also created review videos for many of these… so I’ll share those, too.

1. Striped Beach Towels

These are the beach towels I landed on for pool and boat days. They’re 100% ring spun cotton, are super soft, absorbent, affordable, and they’ve been really durable. These have also held up well in the washing machine.

2. Outdoor Area Rug

Our patio rug is my favorite! It has a subtle diamond pattern, is durable for outdoor use and full weather exposure, and it has a timeless look. See more of it in my al fresco summer tablescape post recently.

3. Cordless Outdoor Lamps

I just ordered these cordless outdoor lamps and we’ve really been loving them! I use them on our outdoor dining table. They’re more affordable than the designer options and they come in multiple colors!

4. Packable Beach or Concert Chairs

These are our favorite concert chairs. Our go-to outdoor venue requires a low back / beach style chair, so we got these. We’ve been using them for years. They’re lightweight, have storage, and are easy to carry. Obviously great for the beach, too!

5. Packable Sun Hat

I’ve been wearing this hat for almost five summers now. It’s packable, has UVF 50+ protection, a wide brim, and the size is adjustable. I’ve also lost it on the water many times, and it floats for easy retrieval.

6. Garden Hose Storage

I ordered this last summer and it still functions well for us. If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing garden hose storage solution, this is it! We drilled extra holes in the bottom for excess drainage, but it has yet to fade. It’s still a rich black color.

7. Nude Nail Polish

I stopped going to the salon because of this nail polish. It’s the perfect nude for summer (and year round, really). It’s non damaging, allergy-friendly, durable, and so pretty.

8. Ribbed Navy Swimsuit

This $30 swimsuit has quickly become the favorite in my closet. It’s comfortable, fits well (has a nice modest, yet flattering cut), is ribbed, fully lined (including bra cups), and comes in a lot of great colors. I got the navy and often wear it as a bodysuit, too.

9. White Outdoor String Lights

Our string lights are over five years old and they perfectly blend with our patio pergola. They’re affordable, durable, and give a simple, yet charming look.

10. Yeti Tundra Cooler

Our Yeti Tundra cooler is over eight years old and has yet to let us down on any adventure or camping trip. Why do I prefer this to other less expensive brands? If you camp, this is bear-rated by NPS / IGBC, so you can use it in place of a bear box (without getting a park citation or ticket).

11. Airhead Life Jacket

When buying life jackets for our boat, we did a lot of research and landed on these neolite Airhead PFDs. So far, they’ve been fantastic… comfortable and easy to clean.

12. Navy Ball Cap

I have two go-to summer ball caps and this is one of them. It’s under $15, comes in lots of colors, and is 100% cotton for a casual, easy summer look. It’s adjustable, too.

13. Monogram Doormat

I bought this after our back patio doormat deteriorated, and I have to say- it rivals our far more expensive similar mats from Pottery Barn- and seems more durable with the rubber edge.

14. Yeti Tumbler

My preferred summer cup… I like that it fits in all of our cupholders, stays cold, and has a lid closure to keep it from spilling while driving or boating. It’s another one of those things I’ve had for years!

15. Solar Stair Lights

Last week, I shared Where to Install Outdoor DIY Solar Landscape Lighting and these have been a game changer. Stair lights have made my life so much easier (and probably safer).

16. Packable Picnic Mat

This packable picnic mat is nice because it’s waterproof (and easy to clean), thanks to a durable backing. We keep it in our car for food truck Fridays, outdoor concerts, and summer festivities. It rolls up with a handle.

17. Porch Light Lantern

I love when friends ask me about our porch light lanterns, and are pleasantly surprised. They were such a good and aesthetically pleasing budget find!

18. Sea Salt Texture Spray

My dermatologist recommended this. It’s allergy friendly, I use it daily on wet hair for texture & volume, it smells like summer in a bottle, works super well (on many hair types), and I never travel without it.

19. Loveseat Camp Chair

The last camping trip we ventured on, there were nine of these circled around the campfire. All of our friends have them, we’ve had ours for almost a decade, and it really is the best camp chair… for couples, kids, or families with dogs!

20. Lounge Set Summer Pajamas

This budget friendly set is under $20, is super soft, and has been my go-to summer pajamas for a couple years now. I made a video for this set, if you want a closer look!

21. Summer Boat Tote

If you’re looking for a budget friendly version of the LL Bean boat tote, this is it. I gave a few of these as gifts last summer… it’s also easy to customize & embroider- and very similar to my beloved Tuesday Made tote, which goes everywhere with me.

22. Juliska Glassware

I recently upgraded our glassware in the kitchen, and while we use these year round… I think this set looks especially charming during the summer season! They’re heavy, high-quality, and dishwasher safe.

23. Garden Obelisk

This is probably my most asked about outdoor item… our garden obelisks really are beautiful. I’ve used them as tomato cages the past few years and they’re still rust-free.

24. Woven Coasters

Woven coasters are an easy summer styling switch, and these are my favorite! They’re low profile, have protective felt on the bottom, and add warmth & texture to any table.

25. Ice Cream Maker

Our ice cream maker is 13 years old and still runs great! Every summer, it gets quite a workout, as we’re constantly making homemade ice cream (my favorite summer treat). This extra dark chocolate ice cream is a go-to.

  1. Good morning! Your Amazon recs are always SO wonderful and appreciated. Although we are the opposite of adventurous, I love sharing those picks with my camping friends. I’m always interested in your gardening and landscape finds. Definitely need to make my outdoor lighting choices soon. I may need to replace my patio umbrellas too because they got thrashed in an unexpected storm the other night. Boo. What I really need to peruse are your travel essentials! We are heading to Maine and Boston next week. Nothing like last minute shopping, right? BTW, I especially value product videos when you include them, so thanks for going the extra mile! Cheers to a sunny, productive week! Have a good one, Sarah!💜

      Thanks, Peggi! And thank you so much for sharing picks with your camping pals. Appreciate that! We’re actually about to head out on a camping trip… totally roughing it- backpacking & paddling, so no camper, ha! I’m looking forward to being in nature though (despite the lack of amenities). Let me know if you need patio umbrella shopping help. The outdoor stuff is my favorite at the moment. Sorry to hear the storm trashed yours though. That’s a bummer! I am most excited to hear about your Maine & Boston trip next week! YAY!! I’ll be living variously through you, so please post often. Hope you’re having the best week as you gear up for your trip! xo

  2. Hey there! We’re in Summer Blast mode this week (our church’s version of VBS); the later post was a welcome break after a very full morning! I love your summer picks- many of these are items I have been thinking about getting or upgrading. I can’t wait to dive into more of your review videos; such a helpful tool. We are finally getting summer weather just in time for us setting up the pool- and this year I may be investing in extra pool towels. I particularly like the striped ones you recommended. I hope you had a wonderful weekend! By the way: love the sneak peek of the stair runner you posted. Looking top notch! Have a fantastic Monday! Xoxo

      I love that- hope y’all enjoy VBS this week to kick off summer! Pool time sounds amazing. It has definitely been super hot here this week. I’m working on a stair runner installation post right now! :) Thanks Lauren!
