Words: Amy Newson

Whether you’re hitting the park or simply enjoying the sun from your garden, our Home buyers are here to help you make the most of this summer.

1 Whip up some homemade pizzas

Ooni Pizza Oven

Nothing beats the smoky goodness of wood-fired pizzas – especially when they’re handmade by you. Versatile and fun, outdoor pizza ovens are made for low-key entertaining. We love this portable one from Ooni, which cooks a delicious, authentic Neapolitan pizza in just one minute. Add your favourite friends and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for a great day/night.

2 Host a barbecue

Tramontina Charcoal Barbecue

Imagine a balmy day and the smell of barbecues wafting through the air – isn’t that the perfect summer’s day? From ceramic charcoal grills to smokeless barbecues, our buyers have picked their favourites to suit all tastes and spaces. This Tramontina carbon-steel charcoal barbecue is deceptively lightweight, easy to use and compact, making it the perfect choice for smaller outdoor areas.

3 Adventure to territories unknown

Wave Spa Inflatable Paddleboard

From hitting the water with this Wave Spa inflatable paddleboard that neatly packs into a rucksack, to setting off on a camping trip with Yeti’s range of essentials, our outdoors kit caters to all adventurous spirits. Prefer your summers a little more sedate? From Connect 4 to table tennis, get your game on from the comfort of home.

4 Experiment with new cocktail recipes

&Klevering Glasses

Sun-filled days are made for cocktails. Whip up drinks worthy of Club Tropicana with our mix of bold glasses – we love these ones from &Klevering – shakers and the all-important spirits. We can’t think of a better way to shake, stir and muddle your way through the summer months.

5 Throw a pool party to remember

Sunnylife Underwater Camera

OK, so the pool party might involve an inflatable paddling pool or hot tub, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go all out on the kit. Sunnylife underwater camera? Check. Pool floats? Check. Sun loungers? Check. Our pool accessories are guaranteed to kick your party off in style.

6 Organise the ultimate picnic

Sunnylife Cooler

Who doesn’t love the relaxed spontaneity of a picnic? Grab your blanket and stock up your cooler, and you’re ready to go. This Sunnylife cooler doubles as a Bluetooth speaker, making picnic packing even easier. 

7 Take a day to lounge

Seletti deckchair

Summer is as much about recharging as partying. The key is finding the perfect spot to while away an afternoon. Enter our range of the comfiest and most stylish lounging furniture – from hammocks to deckchairs, outdoor chairs (with plenty of cushions) and daybeds. Here’s to enjoying a day of doing absolutely nothing.

8 Head to the beach in style

Sunnylife Beach Bat Set

The sea beckons. Make the most of your beach day with our seaside-ready favourites that bring a touch of style to the sand. From family games like Sunnylife’s beach bat set, to relaxing loungers, super-soft towels, sun tents and the all-important coolers – start ticking off your checklist now.

9 Dine alfresco

Popolo Plates

The main ingredient to hosting an alfresco dinner party under the stars? A table scaped to the max. For an Insta-worthy table display, opt for beautifully decorated tableware (we love Popolo’s designs), a summery tablecloth, colourful glasses, twirly candles and freshly cut flowers. Need more inspo? Take a look at some of our Home buyers’ favourites. 

10 Kit out your balcony

Normann Recycled LDPE Stool

No garden? No problem. Host a select gathering using furniture that can be doubled up as storage or a display piece, like this recycled stool by Normann, and mini electric grills for balcony-friendly cookouts. The question is, who will make the cut?
