Say hello to fireworks, BBQ, and lawn games! With so many summer vacations canceled due to current events, it’s more important than ever to make your at-home holidays just as exciting. We’ve compiled a list of all the must-haves to celebrate America’s birthday in style.

Nothing says summer like biting into an ice cream cake. Take your cake to the next level by making your own. You can customize the flavors and the decorations, and add extra fudge and crunch (we all know that’s the best part). This cookbook breaks it down for you, and includes a ton of recipes and suggestions. 

Fido deserves a treat too. This bomb pop dog toy is the perfect toy for any patriotic pooch. 

Let the games begin! With the Olympics canceled this year, you can have your very own backyard competition. Celebrate the fourth of July with a rousing game of Kan Jam, and try not to get too competitive. Remember, they’re still your family, even if they beat you at Kan Jam. 

It’s never too early to introduce the kiddos to American history, and this book breaks it down in a way that’s easily understandable. The fourth can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember why we celebrate this holiday, and why we aren’t all speaking with British accents. 

Make your summer barbeque a little easier by using this vegetable basket. Instead of losing veggies to your grill and fumbling to get them off the heat in time, just load all your produce into this basket for a much easier time. Grilling vegetables is one of the easiest ways to up your barbeque, and will convince even the most dedicated carnivores to add some green to their plate. 

It wouldn’t really be a summer holiday without a little s’mores action. If you can never find the perfect stick to use for roasting marshmallows, these skewers make it a little easier. They’re also color-coded, so there will be no more trying to remember whose stick is whose.

What says America more than a cowboy hat? Or the Star-spangled banner? How about a red, white, and blue cowboy hat? Keep the sun out of your eyes and off your face with this Western-inspired chapeau, sure to be the perfect accessory 

Maybe you’re spending this holiday at the beach, or are one of the lucky ones to have a pool. Either way, there is no bigger party foul than getting the speaker wet and breaking it. Eliminate all chances of this happening with a waterproof speaker from JBL. 

Stock up on all supplies needed for a barbeque to remember with this value pack of cups, plates, napkins, silverware, and straws. 

Have a great holiday weekend from all of us at Girls Nite In Online!
