Top 5 Summer Things to Buy Now

Note: This is a sponsored guest post. 

With summer winding down, and the dwindling possibility of long afternoons spent relaxing in a beautiful garden at the forefront of everyone’s minds, it’s time consider which summer items you need to buy now.

Whether it’s the latest home gadget or a new set of garden furniture, there’s always a wide variety of shopping needs that crop up as you enjoy the summer weather. To help you take the first steps in compiling your must-buy list, we’ve put together this guide to the top five summer buys.


There’s nothing worse than an overgrown lawn that has been neglected for far too long, except maybe a lawnmower that requires an hour of tinkering before it starts. Perhaps it’s time to pick up a new machine?  

If you’re in the market for a new mower but haven’t got a clue where to start, take a look at the K&Co Flymo lawnmower range available online. Renowned as high quality and durable machines, these lawnmowers will definitely get you through the summer months and beyond.


No summer is complete without the smell of grilled sausages and burgers wafting on the gentle breeze. You’ll keep your house cool when you move your cooking outside if you have BBQ that meets your needs. Think about what type of fuel you want to use and how large it needs to be before you shop.

Swing Seat

The ultimate in comfortable garden furniture, the swing seat is perfect for those warm afternoons when all you need is a cold drink, a good book and a cozy chair that will rock you gently, back and forth. Available in a variety of styles and designs, there’s a swing seat to suit every kind of garden.

Paddling pool

A paddling pool is the ideal way to keep the kids – and maybe even the adults – cool in the heat right in your own yard. Make sure you purchase a pool that is easy to care for, both for your sanity and your budget.

Short break away

Who doesn’t find the need for a little summer relaxation time? Book a short trip away with friends or family. The best ones don’t have to break the bank! 

Enjoy your shopping and enjoy your summer! 


  1. Yup, this list sounds about right. What we want the most is a BBQ. We've just never gotten around to getting one...and now the summer is almost over. Oh well, maybe next year! ;)

  2. This might be a good one to find one at an end-of-season clearance sale. Good luck! I couldn't live without my grill in the summer!
