I’d like to think that summer isn’t over until October, so here are more gadgets and gizmos that are useful anytime, but particularly in warmer seasons.
I don’t advise getting a set of 12 of these calorie-counting wine glasses, but one might be the perfect thing to put a lid on summertime guzzling of sangria or rosé. This ordinary looking wine glass has wine calories marked off on one side. I think it’s a great idea! $19.95.
Zoku Single Quick Pop Maker turns fruit juice or yogurt into a pop in less than 7 minutes! It is 4.5” x 4.5” and comes in blue, purple, orange, yellow or red. $24.99.
This little Hamilton Beach battery powered ice cream maker is cordless and portable. It makes homemade ice cream and sorbet in 6 – 12 minutes. It does best with sorbet. It comes in green, blue and pink. Makes 3 servings.
I love this tall skinny blender that is also a sport bottle to go! In the Oster MyBlend blender whip up your smoothie, detach the container and take it with you. It is strong enough to crush ice, is dishwasher-safe and reusable. $30 in blue, yellow, green or pink.
These expandable go-cups are BPA-free accordion plastic containers that extend to hold snacks then flatten for storage. They look so useful!
These Copco Hydra water-bottle look-alikes twist apart in the middle so you can add ice or lemon slices. BPA-free. 16.9 oz, They come in 4 different colors. $9 each.
Packing for a summer trip? In case a thunderstorm brings a power outage, this cordless iron is easy to use and you won’t be ironing the cord all the time like I do! It heats up very quickly, has an automatic shut-off and is multi-directional. It is 11” x 6” x 8” and weighs 4 lbs. $76.00.
