Just past 6:30 last evening, the sun reached its northernmost point of the year, making today the first full day of summer.
While warm weather has been with us for weeks now, the hottest is yet to come. Statistically, the third week of July presents the warmest temperatures of the season. Some folks love hot weather, but others try their best to stay cool. If you’re in the latter group, these unique gifts will help you chill out, even when it’s blazing hot.
This low-profile window fan earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it produced the highest air velocity and pushed the most air volume. Plus, with only 57.1 decibels of noise, this is one of the quietest fans around. The Best model’s dual fans are reversible and operate independently, allowing one fan to draw cool air in while the other pushes warm air out for optimal circulation. It has a remote control, too, so you don’t even have to break a sweat to turn it on.
Using patented fabric developed for NASA to help keep astronauts comfortable in space, this unique pillow provides a comfortably cool sleeping surface. Available only from Hammacher Schlemmer, inside this pillow millions of invisible microcapsules absorb excess heat and move the warmth away from your head and neck until the pillow reaches the ambient temperature. As you shift positions during sleep, the vacated area of the pillow recovers its cooling properties.
Little else provides the unique gift of feeling cool than floating gently in a pool. This floating hammock supports your head and feet while your core remains partially submerged in water. A Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, this float’s unique design offers a blend of support and buoyancy that gives you the sensation of swinging in a favorite hammock. It requires no inflation, just get in the water and while away the afternoon.
For most people, little else beats the feeling of summer and memories of long, carefree days. Take time to enjoy the unique gifts this season brings…but if you can’t take the heat, we are here to help you keep your cool.
