3 — Romcom read

Read a good book by the pool or in the garden

It wouldn’t be a holiday without getting stuck into a funny, romantic novel – and Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart Hawaii is perfect for the beach.

4 — Metal straws

Save money by using reusable straws

Only the devil still uses plastic straws. Keep metal straws in your bag in case of cocktail-related emergencies, or pop them in G&Ts at a summer barbecue.

5 — Prosecco walls

These are perfect for a special occasion

It doesn’t matter if it’s a wedding, a baby shower, or a barbie, no al-fresco event is complete without a wall of Prosecco-filled glasses. Floral walls are so over.

6 — Flamingo ringo

Enjoy some games in the garden

The tropical-themed ring-toss game comes with three metal flamingos and six metal rings that will have you and your friends embracing your competitive spirit in no time.

7 — Avocado pinata

This pinata is fun for all the family

It sounds very “millennial” but one of these hanging from the tree is guaranteed to get the fun going at any summer soiree. The kids can join in, too.

8 — Meat-free bbq

Halloumi burgers will hit the spot this summer

Halloumi burgers and grilled corn on the cob will make up for a lack of burgers.

  • Fresh Veggie BBQ recipes, by Charlotte and David Bailey, £14.99 from

9 — Milkshake beer

These pale ales have a slightly milky taste

No, not a fruity milkshake with beer. These are India pale ales brewed with lactose to give a fuller body and slightly milky taste. Sounds gross, tastes delicious.

10 — Orange wine

Sip orange wine to cool down

Rosé has ruled summer for a while, but pink needs to make way for orange. Orange wines, made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the juice, are popping up on menus and supermarket shelves.

11 — Simple swimwear

Simple swimwear is bang on trend

When it comes to your swimwear this season, simplicity is key. Clean lines and plain designs to create a defined silhouette are a must-have – and the one-piece is bigger than ever.

12 — Old-school ices

All-time favourite ice lollu

Rather than dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, fun-free ice creams, everyone is going retro with their icy choices this summer.

  •  Nestle’s Nobbly ­Bobbly Ice Lollies, £2.20 from Tesco

13 — Drinks holder

A drinks holder is perfect for lazy days by the pool

From banana boats for your floats to a tropical island for your cocktail, an inflatable drinks holder is the must-have pool accessory.

14 — Hair clips

This 90s trend is back in

If you want to be a-head of the rest this summer, wear as many hair clips as you can get your hands on.

  • Set of hair clips, £15.99 from Zara

15 — Barely-there sandals

Sandals can be teamed with jeans or a skirt

A fave in the Nineties and this season’s “it” footwear. Think Rachel from Friends. Team with a pair of jeans or silk skirt.

16 — Prairie dress

This dress can be dressed up or dressed down

The Western-inspired trend is huge this season. A square neckline paired with a midi length makes for the perfect prairie dress and is our summer go-to.

17 — Festival chair

These loungers can be taken anywhere

The Fat Boy lounger “inflates” in seconds and doubles up as a sofa and lounger.

  • Fatboy Lamzac lounger, £74.50 from Selfridges or

18 — Outdoor chilling

These rugs will bring the indoors outdoors
Stuart Vinter

We all want to get cosy when the evenings get chilly. Rugs like this one help to bring the indoors outdoors.

19 — Slider workouts

Don’t forget to stay fit and healthy this summer

Possibly the cheapest full-body workout, Sliders are also light, so they can be taken on holiday.

20 — One for the kids

These are perfect for the kids

They’ve been a firm favourite for a while, and this year Trunki has two new designs – Flossi the Flamingo and Percy the Police Car.
