As we transition from winter to spring, the excitement of good weather and outdoor adventures begins. To start off the spring season, I picked out 5 items that I would love to have. There are many fun activities to do in the spring and summer seasons—even if your travel plans have been altered—and having these products would make the memories better!
The first item I chose was a 18 oz Takeya Insulated Water Bottle. I currently have a Yeti Rambler 26 oz Water Bottle, but sometimes it gets too heavy to carry. I wanted to invest in a smaller water bottle that would be easy for me to carry around in my bag or backpack. When the weather starts to permit activities like hiking and going to the beach, this bottle will also be great for keeping my drink cold. I love having multiple reusable water bottles, and have stopped using plastic water bottles ever since!
Next on my list was the JBL Flip 5 Portable Waterproof Speaker, a must-have item for summer get-togethers. There’s no better feeling than listening to some music outside. The main reason I wanted a portable bluetooth speaker was for the beach, and the great thing about this speaker is that it’s waterproof, so I’m more comfortable bringing it everywhere. This color is also very trendy and fits right up my alley, but the speaker does come in other fun colors like red, teal, and camouflage.The sizing of the speaker is also perfect. It’s not too big or bulky, so it’s something I can easily carry—which is what I was looking for when deciding these specific products.
When they were released in March 2019, the Apple Airpods were a hot commodity. A year later, they still uphold that reputation. Almost every iPhone user has Airpods, or has thought about getting some. I’m here to tell you they are worth it! While I do have a pair, these continue to be on my list because the Apple Airpods Pro came out. These are worth the investment. No more untangling my headphones from my bag, i just pop open the case. These bluetooth headphones do not fall out of your ear, and they are quite comfy. Not to mention this is probably a trendy product for millenials and Gen Z, so it’s a no brainer I would recommend these to anyone.
One of my most-wanted products is a GoPro camera. The GoPro HERO8 and the MAX 360 are the two newest models of the best-selling action camera brand. They are the perfect cameras to capture the endless memories you’ll make with friends. If you plan on any outdoor activities this spring, like skateboarding or surfing, either camera would be a product to take along with you. I would personally love to take a GoPro with me next time I go for a swim. And if you are trying to start a youtube channel for example, this would be a camera to choose.
The last item on my list was a Tumi Floral Everyday Tote, which was a must for me. I currently was in need of a tote-like bag to carry things like my water bottle, speaker, and makeup. This bag is perfect for traveling to faraway places or just to have when I’m exploring the city. Having a tote bag is definitely on my wishlist, and Tumi has made the perfect one.
