Celebrations' Staff Picks: Colorful Totes, Creative Tanks & More Summer Essentials

After a long, harsh winter with biting cold wind and short days, we seriously cannot wait for summer here in New York. High temps, long days and hours spent outside are just what the doctor ordered.

To gear up for the fun summer months, the Celebrations team has found some of their favorite creative summer essentials. A colorful tote bag to hold all of our beach essentials, a fun summer tank for those warm daytime outings and a colorful water jug to keep us hydrated are all some of the creatively designed finds we are obsessing over right now.

So check out some of our staff's favorite picks, and get inspired to stock up for summer! Just don't forget the sunblock and cold cocktail
