The forecast for this Summer is Sizzling. That means you by a pool, at the beach, or indoors with the A/C. From beach accessories to beach necessities and more, here are The Gift Chick’s picks to keep you cool, happy and entertained throughout the Summer!

Cool yourself off in the hot weather with Cool Jazz Ice Cube Trays or bling out your beverage with Cool Jewels Ice Cube Trays.

You’ll love this portable waterproof iPod Speaker. Now you can have tunes wherever you go.

Whether you can swim like a fish or not, the SeaDoo SeaScooter is a fun water toy for all.

This Summer, let your feet have some “peace” with comfy Tie-Dyed Flip Flops. Keep your dogs from barking. They no longer need to be stuffed, suffocating, and sweating in those sneakers.

Tossing a Geyser Football or kicking around a Geyser Soccer Ball is a surefire way to get yourself outside and exercising this Summer, while guaranteeing to keep you cool. That’s a hard activity to resist.

Of course, you wanna stay fashionable this Summer so toss your Summer essentials in a I Am Peace, I Am Love tote bag.

Solise has the world’s first and only Body Wash with SPF 15 sunscreen for UVA/UVB protection built in! Your skin feels clean and soft without any greasy residue, while protecting your skin from the dangers of the sun.

These fantastically designed Marcus UV Rings are stylish and functional! Put one on and measure just how much UV radiation you are getting this Summer. Never get sunburned again!

Whether you are indoors or out, drinking enough water is so important. Our Klean Kanteen PBA-free waterbottle is rated tops in its category.

Hot Summer = Sweaty Pits. Get so fresh and so clean with Peace Soap.

Tote it to the beach, the pool showers, the camp showers…The waterproof Shower Caddy with mesh bottom keeps your toiletries organized and dry in a stylish way.

The Summer’s so bright, you gotta wear shades. Don a unique pair of Flashy Sunglasses to shine right back at the sun. In the steps of Beyonce’s and Lady GaGa’s hip and over-the-top style, try something like Raffaella Montalban’s Arm-Free Sunglasses or a pair of Chandelier Sunglasses or Hello Kitty Bejeweled Sunglasses.

Make your own refreshingly delicious treat with Zoku’s Quick Popsicle Maker. And whether it’s a healthy fruit treat or a high fructose/ corn syrup indulgence, it’s your prerogative. We don’t judge.

If you can’t pull yourself away from the A/C and are going to hang indoors, here are some fun games for you, your family, and friends.

  • A colorful style of the classic Dominos, Qwirkle will keep your brain in check over the Summer. Strategically match tiles by shapes or colors to win.
  • Incorporate your Summer reading and spelling assignments while playing Zip-It, the newest word game from Bananagrams.
