Of course, the word 'essential' means different things to different people.
For some, a Kindle is an essential part of their summer, for others, it's a new BBQ to host balmy evening dinner parties, and some of us couldn't imagine the warmer season passing without endless garden games and copious snacks.
But, whatever you deem essential, it's likely that you'll find it within the two million deals that are part of Amazon Prime Day 2021.
Taking place a little earlier this year, between 21 and 22 June, this huge shopping event will see all sorts of brilliant bargains and items across all categories go to happy (and, yes, rather smug) new homes.
So don't miss out, we've rounded up a whole selection of summer essentials that you can nab via Amazon for less than ever.
Save your extra money for all those evenings at the beer garden - or for a summer holiday in 2022, without missing out on much-needed goodies for this year.
In order to shop the sale, you do need to be an Amazon Prime member. However, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial starting today if you just want to make the most of the Prime Day deals.
