Regardless of whether your backyard (or balcony, or patio) is your place to sunbathe and swim laps or to simply enjoy a good glass of rosé, there’s no doubt that it could benefit from the season’s hottest outdoor accessory: a patio umbrella with lights. These furnishings vary in price, but they’re certainly worth the spend, if you ask us—they’re the pièce de résistance of any outdoor setting. Not only will they provide cool shade throughout the day, their warm solar or LED lights, like the ones this Best Choice Products patio umbrella, $80, features, will offer the perfect ambiance come evening time.
