We’ve curated a collection of summer gift ideas for beach days and picnics. We handpicked this awesome cooler to be paired with summer essentials and goodies to make for the perfect summer gift!
The CleverMade Soft Cooler
Why We Love It: After researching soft coolers and actually considering the bulky, overpriced ($350?!) YETI cooler, we found the perfect soft cooler for our summer picnics, beach days and upcoming camping trip. The design is fun, simple and understated, not too many cumbersome pockets and attachments. It’s the perfect size – fits 50 cans, collapses so can be used year-round for groceries, and best of all, keeps your stuff cold for up to 36 hours, wow. And only costs $30, holy sticker shock!
Perfect for: A summer gift for the family, or housewarmings, weddings, anniversaries
Helpful review: “This cooler works so well! I gave it to my dad as a Christmas gift and he said that the ice stayed solid for 2 days. I will be ordering another one for myself now.” – Sarah, The Grommet Review
Product notes: This leak-proof collapsible cooler can hold up to 50 cans then fold down to a three-inch layer. Equipped with a built-in bottle opener, nifty outer pockets, and durable handles, this cooler keeps your drinks cold up to 36 hours. Snap to collapse it flat and avoid a bulky container when you return from a tailgate or camping trip.
