It's the season for relaxation, and what better time to enjoy the weather by taking a load off. Relaxing can be serious business, and we're here to help, with these six suggestions to make the most of your downtime.

Ohuhu Double Hammock with Stand

Double hammock economical


Let’s start with that classic symbol of summer sloth: a comfy hammock to lounge in. This option from Ohuhu is one we really liked. With three designs to choose from, its 100 per cent cotton folds will envelop you nicely, and it is moderately priced, with a 450-pound carrying capacity.

What else to know:

  • Includes 10-foot all-weather resin steel stand
  • Includes carrying case
  • Rated 4.5 out of 5 on, based on 1,400 reviews

Goplus Zero Gravity Chairs

Zero G chair Amazon


Whoever invented the zero-gravity chair, it is my most fervent wish that they retired wealthy beyond the dreams of any mortal. For outdoor leisure, nothing beats this portable design, and there are a lot of options out there to choose from. We picked this one because of its affordability, and the fact it comes with its own side tray included – together, this package is more affordable than getting a basic chair and a separate side tray. If you’ve a bit more to spend and wouldn’t mind a second chair, here’s a two-pack option from FDW that offers even more bang for your buck.

What else to know:

  • 30-pound total weight
  • Headrest included
  • Rated 4.3 out of 5 on, based on more than 500 reviews

HoMedics Sound Spa Relaxation Machine

Sound Machine Amazon


White noise machines are often suggested to help infants sleep, but they can benefit adults as well, whether it’s for a snooze or just to help clear your head a bit. They’re surprisingly affordable as well, and we went with this one from HoMedics not only for its variety of sounds, but for its immense popularity on – 45,000 reviewers can’t be wrong!

What else to know:

  • Six sound options
  • 15, 30 and 60-minute auto-off timer
  • Rated 4.6 out of 5 on, based on 45,000 reviews, one of the highest we’ve seen on that platform

RENPHO Back Massager with Heat

Back massager


Everyone loves a good massage, but when the nearest spa isn’t near enough, a massage pillow like this one will work a treat. It’s billed as a back massager, but it’s just as useful for your neck, shoulders, arms and legs when used correctly. Add in an optional heating function, and the deal is sealed.

What else to know:

  • Handheld remote control allows you to adjust the functions without having to adjust your position
  • Two speed modes available
  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 on, based on more than 4,800 reviews

Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless 3D Eye Mask

22-05-04 Sleep Mask Amazon


If you do plan on shutting your eyes for a bit at the height of the day, a sleep mask can really help get you in the zone, and we’re drawn to this one. Wildly popular among users who bought it from, it blocks out 100 per cent of light, while also allowing you to play soothing music using Bluetooth.

What else to know:

  • Breathable memory foam allows you to mould the mask comfortably to your face
  • Electronic components can be removed to allow for hand washing
  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 on, based on more than 15,000 reviews

Everlasting Comfort Memory Foam Travel Pillow

22-03-18 Travel pillow


When you want to kick back in your favourite chair, but want something a bit more custom than a simple cushion, we humbly submit that a travel pillow can do wonders. We like this memory foam option from Everlasting. Rather than one-size-fits-all, it adapts to your own shoulders and neck to support your upper body, and comes with a few great accessories to sweeten the pot.

What else to know:

  • Comes with memory foam earplugs, sleeping mask, and carrying bag
  • Side storage pocket lets you stow glasses or keys while snoozing
  • Rated 4.4 out of 5 on, based on more than 6,400 reviews
