In Europe we’ve had many tropical days during Spring already. It was almost too hot to work, so now that Summer has officially started I want to be prepared. Luckily there are many simple and cute ways to keep cool.
Cool down with one of the cute character fans that you can find at AmiAmi including Hello Kitty, Pokemon and Sumikko Gurashi.
Hydrate and then hydrate some more ;). Bring (refrigerated) water along anywhere you go, with this sweet Rilakkuma water flask.
Bento&co also have a nice selection of cooling items with a polar bear theme that will help you enjoy a refreshing lunch.
Keep a small spray bottle filled with water in your bag, for a quick face mist.
Or make popsicles! These adorable Woodland bunnies lolly makers are available at several shops. You can fill them with fruit, yoghurt or juice and mix colours as well. I’m sure that Pinterest and Google will help you to some popsicle recipes.
Last but not least you can use ice packs or ice cubes to cool down. How about putting some Rilakkuma shaped ice cubes in your Summer drink?
