Over the weekend, I gifted my mom with the greatest find - a portable hammock. Is there anything better than laying in a hammock on a beautiful summer day? Most hammocks are big, bulky and heavy. This one, however, has a bag with wheels and folds up to a good size that would fit in anyone's trunk. I found it at Costco for $60. It has it's own awning/sunshade too. It's the perfect beach or backyard hammock.

Unfortunately, Minnesota summers have their downsides - mosquitoes! Leave it to Amazon to find that solution.


Introducing the foldable outdoor hammock with mosquito net. Tell me this isn't the coolest thing you've ever seen?! It's only $29.99 on Amazon. I want one!

Right now it has a 4.2 star out 5 rating with people saying it's very comfortable, and a great way to enjoy the outdoors.
