It's all in the extra touches....which is why we think they are summer essentials. Nothing says cozy summer nights more than a outdoor firepit. Whether it's a sleek stone-like bowl that easily lights with ethanol fuel or a large copper fire bowl that you can fill with real wood, it's all in the romance and coziness of the flickering flame. Some of our favorite summer memories are the days of jumping into a hammock with a pillow and a blanket...the perfect place to read or take a nap.
