Spending time outdoors this weekend? You’ll need these must-haves

2 min

It’s been a long week, and as the weekend edges ever closer, you might be looking forward to spending some time relaxing in the sun at the beach, the lake or in your own backyard. The weather is improving, which means plenty of sunshine to boost your vitamin D intake, your mood and your outlook. Is there a better way to spend your free time?

If you’re planning on spending time outdoors this weekend, you’ll need these must-haves! Read on to find out more.

Reading sunglasses

There’s nothing better than spending your free time in the sunshine with a good book, e-reader or even streaming your favourite shows on your digital device. You might think that you have to forgo your sunglasses and clear vision in order to enjoy a book or device outside in the sun. However, that’s simply not the case. With this range of reading sunglasses from EyeBuyDirect.com you can enjoy protection from UVB rays, glare, and still see clearly without having to carry a second pair of frames with you. These stylish frames are available in a wide range of shapes, colours, and materials, so whatever sunglasses style suits you best, you’re sure to find them on the EyeBuyDirect website.


No one should be out in the sunshine without the right skin protection. A factor 50 sunscreen will keep you and your family protected from harmful UV rays, reducing the risk of skin cancers, sunburn and other sun damage issues. Consider a spray option if your children won’t stand still long enough to apply it throughout the day!


As much as you’re planning to enjoy the fresh air and pleasant weather, it’s important that you take regular breaks from the intense sun and heat. Setting up shaded areas where you can get a drink and relax is essential on warmer days, especially from 12 pm-3 pm when the sun is at its most intense. So, put up that new parasol, or head indoors every so often for respite.

Somewhere comfortable

Whether you’re sunbathing in your backyard or watching the kids play in the paddling pool, you’ll need somewhere comfortable to relax in the heat. When was the last time you updated your garden furniture? You could give it a lick of paint or splash out on a new set to welcome the warm weather. From sun loungers to outdoor sofas and footstools, maybe even a hammock for the kids to enjoy, keeping yourself comfortable will help you to keep cool in the heat.

A cover-up

Cover-ups are the perfect accessory for those hot days when you don’t want to change out of your swimwear or you just want something light and cool to wear that will protect you from the sun. Make sure you find one made of natural fibres and a cool, classic white colour.

Final thoughts…

Enjoying the warm weather this weekend doesn’t have to be a challenge. Ensuring you have everything you need will help you make the most of your free time.
