If you can't go on vacation, then bring the vacation to you… Our secret summer hack? A swingy, stretchy, let-the-stress-melt-away hammock. It's the ultimate must-have for instant island lift, whether you're landlocked in a studio apartment with a fire-escape view or looking to upgrade the backyard to a five-star destination. It's great for indoors, outdoors, on a trip to the park, or your new transportive #WFH office. Pro tip: Round out the experience with a Caribbean cocktail and steel-drum soundtrack.
