Poppin' Popsicles

Popsicles are the perfect summer sweet treat! Whether you love a classic fruity pop, a creamy Fudgsicle, or a lip puckering pickle pop (whaaat?!), these popsicle molds are the perfect way to customize your favorite cool flavors! We're working on some popsicle recipes right now with this stainless steel popsicle mold. If you're not into the stainless, you can try these BPA Free - Plastic Popsicle Molds or Silicone Ice Pop Molds (perfect for kiddos!)


Cool Caffeine Buzz

We are definitely Team Iced Coffee in this house. Even when the weather is frigid, it's hard to pass on a refreshing, iced cold coffee. So, when the air is hot and steamy, an iced cold espresso & cream is oh so refreshing. If you only dabble in hot coffee, now's the time to dive into the cool coffee pool! These essentials will have you sipping cold brew in no time! Get your coffee going the night before with this Cold Brew Pitcher. If you're a fan of mason jars, you'll love this Mesh Mason Jar Filter. The mesh tube fits right into any wide mouth 16 oz., 32 oz., or 64 oz. mason jar. 



Keep Your (Drinks) Cool!

If you're out and about with your favorite iced drink, you know you want to keep it cold for as long as you can! These insulated mugs will keep your cold drinks cold. There are a lot of styles to choose from, but we love the insulated water bottle style and these stainless steel tumblers with a reusable straw


Ice, Ice Baby!

Silicone ice trays have been all the rage the last few years and I still happen to love them! These guys save me from struggling with stiff plastic ice trays. With a gentle nudge, they slide out of their silicone spaces with ease! But my favorite use for silicone ice trays doesn't involve turning water to ice. Fill the slots with whatever fresh herbs you have on hand (like basil, cilantro or parsley) and olive oil. Freeze for a flavor packed cube that you can throw into a pan when you need some herby goodness in your dish! Or freeze your favorite blended fruits (with a little booze if ya like!) for a frozen sweet treat.  


Pack It Up!

Sometimes, sweating it out is unavoidable. For those days when you're out in the sun at your kids game or hanging by the pool, one of these insulated cooler bags would be perfect! Heading to an outdoor potluck or beach party? Check out the double layer thermal casserole holder or insulated wine bag to keep your dips & drinks cold!

Dive In!

Don't leave your drink behind when you jump in the pool this summer! These inflatable drink holders are a fun way to keep your bevs floating close by. Check out the funky flamingo & pretty pineapple drink holder with a sneaky little ice chest inside! 


Float On!

Rule the deep end with these funky floaties! Lounge around Mermaid style or  keep yourself 'octopied' with this jumbo inflatable!
