When the weather is great outside it seems a little strange to visit some far off country. It’s sometimes nice to relax out in your own garden. Not everyone needs to jump on an airplane and travel to the other side of the world to have fun. But your garden maybe isn’t the best place you can spend your vacation. Not yet anyway, but it could be once you add these gadgets to your collection.

Igloo Glide Pro Cooler

When you’re lying outside you want to stay out there all day. That means not running into the house every 2 minutes to grab a nice cold drink from the fridge. With the Igloo Glide Pro Cooler it makes your life a whole lot easier. Just wheel it outside and you can fill it with all your favorite drinks. If you want to get the maximum benefit from it, you can fill it to the brim with ice and your drinks will stay ice-cold all day.

You can’t have a holiday without lovely snaps and you’ll need a nice camera. But the Canon Powershot D20 isn’t like most you’ll find. You can take great photos under the water, so if you have a swimming pool in the garden you can have fun with the kids taking pictures as you play around. It’s pretty obvious there’s some moments you’ll never capture without a waterproof camera, so make sure you capture them all.

Ikea Solvinden Outdoor Lamps


These little lamps are great and you can pick them up from Ikea for pretty cheap. They charge throughout the day and as soon as the light disappears they will automatically come on. Just hang them around the garden from trees and anything else you can think of. Your garden will brighten up when the sun says goodbye and you can remain outside until it gets too cold.

Renetto Zero-Gravity Hammock

You want somewhere to lie down outside and nothing will ever come close to a hammock. The Renetto Zero-Gravity Hammock doesn’t even need any trees. It’s a stand-alone contraption that will sit anywhere in the garden. You then get to jump in and spend the rest of the day in ultimate relaxation.

Thermacell Mosquito Lantern

Mosquitoes be gone!

The one thing that can be annoying when you lie in the garden is all the mosquitoes flying around. You don’t want them biting you and leaving marks up and down your arms. It’s easy enough to buy a mosquito zapper, but then it gets a bit annoying when you’re trying to relax. This gadget will spray out a huge cloud of allethrin which will stop the mosquitoes in their tracks.

A Kindle Fire

There isn’t really any need to buy physical books again. They are slowly becoming old news, especially with all the wonderful eReaders being invented these days. None come close to the Kindle Fire at the moment. The screen is large enough to read easily and you have instant access to the biggest library in the world. You can spend all day reading books from the comfort of your hammock.
