Novelty pool floats are fun and add a festive touch to any poolside party. This colorful and bright Avocado Pool Float is made of thick and durable raft-grade material, comes with an inflatable ball that fits in the floatie like an avocado pit, and easily inflates with a hairdryer or toy air pump. 

"This is by far the most popular float in our pool thus far! It is a decent size so it will hold a full adult. It was easy to inflate thanks to the multiple option/large inflate tube that other floats don’t have!" says Miramar Systems in their five-star review. 

Beach Towels $10

Multi-Stripe Beach Towel

Even if your guests bring their own towels, it's a great idea to have extras on hand so guests feel free to take multiple dips in the pool or have a comfy place to lie back and soak up the sun. The Big One Striped Beach Towels from Kohl's are our favorites because they're thick, reversible, quick drying and available in a variety of bright colors.  

"Washes well and feels great. Bright colors!" says SpaceNerd in his five-star review.

It wirelessly connects up to 2 smartphones or tablets, supports 12 hours of play time, and can be connected to additional JBL connect+ enabled speakers to amplify the party mood!

In their Amazon review, JCW says "I am so fascinated how extremely great this speaker is for only a whopping 100$ dollars. I would buy this speaker for 300$. An absolute steal!"
