Summer is well underway and with independence day creeping up, we've got some great deals for you this season. With all the early Prime Day sales going on at the moment, we're taking stock of what tools might truly elevate those sunny, daydreamy days on the beach and beyond. This magic carpet is one of them.

$16 $27 at Amazon

Keep sand out of your bags, away from your personal nooks and crannies, and off your lounging space once and for all with the Isopho Beach Blanket, now on sale for $16 with the on-page coupon at Amazon. This oversized towel is designed to repel sand, so that you're not constantly wiping it off when you want to lie down and catch some rays, and it'll stay unsullied when you're ready to wrap it up and call it a day. It's sand-proof and water-resistant, plus it doesn't get picked up by the wind.

It's made of 210 polyester, which repels water even better than an umbrella, and easily shakes off any sand that gets on it. It's spacious too; big enough to fit three to five people. Not a beach bum? The Isopho will also be your best friend at a picnic, or as an anytime waterproof cover whenever and wherever rain threatens.

This amazing blanket comes with four anchors to keep it from flying off on windy days, plus a drawstring bag for easy carrying. It's so low-maintenance, too: It folds up really small, so you don't have to lug around a large blanket with you, and you can just chuck it in a washing machine after your al fresco adventure.

"Love this blanket!" shared a shopper. "We have taken it hiking, on a picnic, and to the beach. It is everything that it says it is. Lightweight, folds small, water-resistant, and easy to clean! Would definitely purchase again."

"A must-have for the beach," says a reviewer who gave the blanket 5 stars. "This is a nice size for a few people and their stuff. It keeps things off the sand, is easy to pack in a beach bag, dries quickly."

A third chimed in: "These are hands-down the best beach blankets available. They’re big, lightweight, fold small, stay put, easy to brush off...perfect!!"
