While combing through the internet’s sale bins today, we uncovered lots of seasonal gear to help you make the most of summer. There’s a comfy hammock for lazy afternoon lounging, some boat-ready white denim, and a barbecue tool set that’s suitable for grilling newbies and seasoned smokers alike.
If you’re still in search of the perfect Father’s Day gift, this Cuisinart set will definitely delight the dad who’s a cookout enthusiast. It contains 20 essential tools for grilling, including a spatula, grill tongs, temperature fork, and silicone basting brush, all contained within a durable aluminum carrying case.
Madewell’s Sale on Sale is still going strong. Use code SALEONSALE to snag an extra 20 percent off this picnic-ready plaid midi dress.
While you’re at it, pick up a pair of in-season white jeans as well — they’ll go nicely with a striped T-shirt for all your sailing adventures.
Made from a breathable cotton-linen blend and cut in an easy, loose-fitting silhouette, Uniqlo U’s climbing shorts can take you from hiking trails to bar patios all summer long.
Our friends over at the Cut have also vouched for Uniqlo’s linen button-downs. “If you throw them in the wash a few times, they get nice and soft, and I have no interest in paying a premium for what amounts to a napkin with buttons,” says Cut fashion writer Emilia Petrarca. “They also dry really quickly.”
Today’s the last day to take 20 percent off at Material Kitchen with the code FATHERSDAY. We suggest you pick up the eight-inch chef’s knife, which Food52 editor and recipe developer Rebecca Firkser has used nearly every day for the past three years. “I love everything about it,” she says. “I find that this one fits really nicely in my hand and feels balanced when I chop. It’s not heavy, but also not too light.”
If you find that your plastic slides tend to get a bit musty, fear not: Freedom Moses sandals are infused with essential oils, giving them a gentle milk-and-honey scent.
Perfect for park, camping, or beach outings, this fade-resistant nylon hammock is a summer staple — and, like a lot of home goods at Target right now, it’s on sale.
