Bug Repellant Wipes

Bug spray is great until you realize you've missed a huge section of your leg that's now covered in bites. Get better coverage with these bug repellant wipes. They're easy to pack and smell even better thanks to Indonesian citronella (a little bit of citrus and vanilla). Throw them in your bag for a hike, a day in the park, or even just an afternoon enjoying the summer sun in the backyard.

LED Golf Balls

Who says the golf game has to stop when the sun goes down? These LED balls ensure your game can continue well into the night; their light stays active for eight minutes after impact, as well as re-triggering with each hit. They are weather resistant, have 40 hours of battery life, and mimic the aerodynamics, control, accuracy, feel, and distance you'd get from a professional golf ball. Except, well, professional golf balls don't glow in the dark.

Reusable Air Fryer Liner

Try silicone air fryer liners if you're looking for an eco-friendly step up from the parchment paper you've been using (it isn't recyclable). Just wash these after each use and watch as they keep their shape and remain durable no matter how high the temperature gets! Best of all, they've been designed with concave and convex lines, which ensure whatever you decide to put in the air fryer gets cooked evenly.
