Everything We’re Buying for Summer from Wayfair's Way Day Sale
From a blow-up hot tub for our back yard to a portable party game that no one in your family has probably ever tried before, summer fun is coming at us hard, thanks to Wayfair's 48-hour Way Day sale today and tomorrow, ending at 3 a.m. ET. Here are 20 sale items (at the lowest prices they will be all year) that we are scooping up (including the cushiest pool float) to guarantee this is Best. Summer. Ever.
1. Giant Pool Float
Big Joe Pool Float
It has built-in handles and a raised pillow, so everything's cushy on this one, starting the minute you carry it from the car.
2. Portable Hot Tub
MSPA USA Delight Tekapo 6-Person 132-Jet Inflatable Bubble Hot Tub
Heavy-duty vinyl blows right up, then heats up to a maximum of 104 degrees. The bottom is padded, too, and it comes with a cover to keep the water free of debris while you're waiting for it to get comfortably steamy.
3. Beach Canopy
OMFG UPF50+ Sun Shade Protection 10 Ft. W x 10 Ft. D Aluminum Pop-Up Canopy
You'll wonder how you ever endured those beating rays beachside before you carted along this simple shade that blocks harmful UV rays but lets the breezes sweep through.
4. Fire Pit
Latitude Run Druzella Stainless steel Propane Gas Fire Pit
Weather-resistant steel cleverly conceals the propane tank you supply as fuel for this tabletop fire pit. It pumps out 50,000 BTU without any messy ashes or flying sparks to concern yourself with.
5. Privacy Screen
Veradek ft. H x 4 ft. W Screen Series Metal Privacy Screen
You don't have to peek into your neighbor's back yard or balcony any more with this groovy, globally influenced screen made of laser-cut galvanized steel. (And if you train a vine to climb up it, so much the prettier.)
6. Lawn Bowling Set
Hey! Play! Bowling Set
Want to be the best guest ever? Gift this handsome lawn bowling set when you arrive for the weekend. No one will notice you're having the most fun playing with it.
8. Set of Matched Chairs
George Oliver Gayden Woven Basket Patio Chair (Set of 2)
In a design based on woven furniture that was popular in Central America in the '50s and '60s, this set of chairs warms up an austere modern garden while it is appreciated for its sleekness in a traditional outdoors area.
9. Inflatable Lawn Toys
Big Sky Warrior Jousting Challenge Inflatables
Work through some of that quarantine aggression with this set of jousting batons and podiums where each participant tries to knock her opponent off their perch. It's more laugh-inducing than bruise-resulting, which is the kind of blowing off steam we're looking forward to in our neighborhood park and back yard.
10. Easy Chair With a Footrest
Coastal Farmhouse Norris Patio Chair with Cushion and Ottoman
Plush grey pillows to sink into, natural acacia wood body and a footstool to prop your legs up to better support that book you are reading. Summer, we are ready.
11. Outdoor Ceiling Fan
52" Kateri 5 - Blade Outdoor Leaf Blade Ceiling Fan with Pull Chain
The palm leaf blades are a subtle nod to tropical living; this three-speed fan with manual reverse switch will turn your porch or patio into a breezy relaxation room.
12. Swing Chair
World Menagerie Gemmenne Swing Chair with Stand
Every outdoor space needs a focal point, and this free-floating curved chair would do any patio proud. Guests will line up to ease back into the powder-coated steel and woven wicker rattan, set with a poly-upholstered cushion.
13. Pet Playpen
Jespet Soft Pet Pen
All the best dog parents wouldn't think of going to the park or the shore without a protective little pen for their dog to nestle into. This one has a convenient carrying case, so it's nbd to pack.
World Menagerie Resin Floor Fountain
It's like we've already had our evening glass of wine in the garden, even before we've actually drunk anything, when we walk outside and hear the burbling of this sleek 34-inch fountain.
Millwood Pines Houk Cast Iron Wood-Burning Chiminea
There's nothing like a freshly cooked smore over an open wood-burning fire, and this 15-inch-tall little cast iron oven lets you safely stick your marshmallow up in there for toasty goodness. Come fall, you'll be surprised how this will keep your toes warm, too.
16. Outdoor Rug
Langley Street Geometric Beige Indoor / Outdoor Area Rug
Kids, dogs, guests—they can all trail across this polypropylene rug that resists staining, fading and mildew. And the woven pattern will hide any debris that falls on it better than a solid-colored carpet.
17. Bright Throw Pillows
Latitude Run Arleatha Outdoor Square Pillow Cover and Insert
A pair of vivid new pillows in orange, yellow, green or even neutral tones will perk up last year's outdoor decor scheme the same way it livens up your indoor couch. And these are Sunbrella fabric, so you know they are going to stay colorfast and resist fading all season long.
18. Croquet Set
Hey! Play! 6 Player Croquet Set with Carrying Case
Be sure to hear "She gets an invite to the barbecue!" about yourself when you're packing this portable set of mallets, wickets and balls. It looks way civilized, but a few Pimm's Cups in, you will be playing for blood.
19. Ladder Toss
Hey! Play! Ladder Toss Set Ladder Ball
In this game, you fling red and blue bolos at a ladder a few feet away, attempting to wrap them around the same colored section of the painted rung. It's just the kind of finessing and pretty much completely nonsensical game that drives us crazy with frustration (and, okay, fun) with our families.
