It’s officially midsummer and not just that but Amazon Prime Day, too. What better way to celebrate both than by snapping up all the essentials you’ll need for the sunny (we hope!) months ahead – and at a fraction of the price.

We’re talking sun cream and flip flops, we’re talking picnic blankets and cooler bags. Whether you’re a happy camper who can’t wait to put up your tent or you’re planning on moving no further than your own back yard, we’ve scoured the best Prime Day deals to get your summer going the way it should.

Our round-up ranges from some brilliantly discounted fun for the kids to some boozier bargains for grown-ups – because it’s not summer unless everyone’s having a good time.

Now, if someone could just arrange for the weather to hold out, too...

To take advantage of Prime Day deals, you’ll need an Amazon Prime membership. Sign up for a free 30-day trial today if you’re not already a member.
