Each summer our family buys a few new items for our home to make it more inviting or fun. Last year we bought our fire pit at the end of the summer. We brought it out for the first time this season last night to have a cook-out with our neighbors. It was nice to sit and talk while we sat around our fire pit to roast our dinner and make s'mores. 

This summer we have our eyes on a few items. I would love to buy a few decor items as well as a new grill for my husband. He has been using a half working grill for 3 years without complaining and I think it's time to get a new one for him.

Must Have Summer Items For Your Home

  1. The color of the Kate Aspen Vintage Lantern is one of my favorites. It would be great as an indoor or outdoor decor piece.
  2. Throw pillows are a good way to add a little color to your room. This linen pillow cover has wonderful colors for summertime.
  3. Have you seen this glassware by The Pioneer Woman? Her whole line is beautiful. Some of her pieces were on this post and people kept commenting on how much they liked the look of the glassware.
  4. A potting bench makes gardening a little easier so you don't have to lean over while organizing your plants in their pots.
  5. This Char-broil 4-burner gas grill is a great purchase for backyard grilling. After checking out different brands and models at many stores, this is the one that my husband says is the best.
  6. Having a 100% Cotton tablecloth makes your dining area look so nice and it's easy to throw in the washer after a family meal. We generally change our pattern for the different seasons and holidays.
  7. Cornhole Backyard Games will keep the kiddos occupied while you relax in the backyard or chat with a friend.
  8. Boochie is a new yard game for the whole family! The fun of bocce ball, but easy for kids to play too.
  9. This Appetizer Serving Tray has a section underneath you can fill with ice to keep your dip, veggies, or fruit chilled.
  10. If you are a fan of mason jars, this Circleware Glass Drink Dispenser will be perfect for you.
  11. Need a space to relax in the yard? This Double Size Hammock will be just right for taking a nap or reading a book.
  12. Cool down on those hot summer days in an Inflatable Pool by Intax. They have many shapes and sizes to choose from.
  13. The Mullier Watermelon Slicer makes it so easy to slice and serve watermelon. One of the reviewers on Amazon said it's useful for slicing cake too.
  14. The Sunnydaze Portable Folding Fire Pit is great to use and then tuck away until the next time you need it.
  15. Need some water balloons quickly? The Bunch O' Balloons fills 100 balloons in one minute.
  16. Bring some of the beach to your home with this Beachy Plank Board Sign.
There are the must have summer items for your home. Which item is your favorite?
