And with so. much. sun. in the UK atm, they're gonna be fully charged very fast. You can save 54% on these today.
An often undiscussed bonus of hot weather is that it gives people the confidence to wear a hat when they are not on holiday or at a wedding.

Be the envy of your colleagues and fellow commuters with a hand held fan you can whip out and use whenever you feel the, ahem, glow. This one folds down meaning it won't take up too much room in your bag, and with a bit of practise you can probably unfurl it in a dramatic, show-stopping fashion.

Get busy on the grill with a BBQ big enough for burgers, corn on the cobs, sausages and veggie kebabs... and then some!

There's a special sort of smugness that comes from knowing you have some home made ice lollies waiting for you in the freezer at home. Use up left over juice, or get adventurous with a frozen mojito twist.
