5 Summer Backyard Essentials You Didn't Know You Needed

Having a good time doesn't always mean making a trip out. With these 5 backyard essentials, you can make the most of your time at home.

Before you invite your friends over, you will need to add some backyard necessities to give your get-together an edge. And don't worry, this isn't a list of items that is going to break the bank, nor is it filled with stuff you are going to have to find a space in the garage to store them until next year.

Let's dive in.

5 Summer Backyard Essentials You Didn't Know You Needed

1. BrüMate Hopsulator Trio

Keeping your drinks in the fridge is great for your unopened beverages, but what about the one you're currently sipping on? Unfortunately, in most cases that first freshly cracked ice-cold sip may be the only ice-cold sip you get when temperatures are soaring outside. Even the most chilled drinks lose their punch when outdoors for long. Luckily, there's a solution. The BruMate Hopsulator Trio is our favourite outdoor drink accessory to keep your cans ice cold. All you need to do is place your beer can in the Hopuslator and enjoy your chilled drink for as long as you want. You may be wondering, "well, if that's all it does, why is it called the trio?" That's because it can fit a standard beer can, as well as a tall beer can. It also comes with a tumbler lid so that you can use it for your hot or cold beverage of choice.


2. The Hygge Game

Have you ever been to a party with one too many awkward silences? We all have. Break away from the regular boring party and include some games in your summer backyard staycation. The Hygge Game creates conversations that will make mingling amongst all your groups easy. It is truly a great conversation starter. Additionally, it can help you create a cozy and pleasant atmosphere when meeting your friends after a long time. It has 300+ questions to choose from and can be played with any number of people.


3. Goodbyn Small Meal Container

When the gathering is in your backyard, there may be too many instances of carrying food back and forth from the kitchen. The best way to avoid this to get a smart meal container that is functional and aesthetically pleasing. The Goodbyn Small Meal Container is the perfect and sustainable solution as it lets you serve small portions of different food items in separate compartments. It is spillage-free and easy to use for kids as well.



This backyard essential is a no-brainer and an absolute must-have. Since you will be outdoors, you will need protection from the suns harmful UV rays. Although there is no shortage of sunscreens out there, we recommend the Sun Bum SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion 177g with broad spectrum SPF 30. It is water-resistant and great for sensitive skin 


5. Dr. Bronner's Hand sanitizer

Last but not least, it's always important to keep a hand sanitizer around at all times. Especially during outdoor gatherings where finger food is the norm. The Dr. Bronner's Hand Sanitizer does not have any of the nasty chemicals like other brands but it is equally effective. The smell of lavender will leave you feeling refreshed and clean.


So go ahead and call up your closest friends for the much-awaited get-together of this summer.

Summing Up

Backyard gatherings are one of the best things to do when the weather is nice, but it is important to have everything you need for everyone to have a fun time. Having plenty of games, drink coolers, sunscreen, containers, and hand sanitizer will help your backyard gathering go on without a hitch
