As the weather shows no signs of improving, we’ve rounded up our favourite wet weather options so you can still make the most of this wet British summer

It looks like it is going to rain for the entire month, so you might as well get on board with it and make the most of these next few weeks. From funky raincoats to sunshine supplements, our favourite wet weather picks will ensure you stay healthy, glam, and sustainable during this wet British summer.

Firstly, wet weather doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy the outdoors

Rectangle outdoor heater glowing orange

Radiant Heater, £89

This outdoor heater provides instant warmth on these long (but cold!) summer evenings and allows you to enjoy the outdoor areas of your home all year long.

Round portable BBQ grilling sausages and chicken

Portable Smokefree BBQ, £119

Best Direct UK is also selling a portable smoke-free BBQ that heats up fast, grills meat and veggies odour-free, and is easy to clean. Enjoy great-tasting food wherever and whenever you like, rain or shine.

Black, red and blue umbrellas

Wonderdry Umbrella, £9.99


And for when you have no choice but to face the rain, this Wonderdry umbrella has reverse open and fold technology that pulls the wet side in, unlike the traditional umbrella. It is the easiest and driest way to get in and out of the pouring rain.

But how about this lovely little rain mac parka thing from M&S. This pale pink M&S rubber-hooded raincoat is on sale right now at £39, down from £55. It’s a steal.

Wooden summer house with decorations outside

7′ x 5′ summerhouse, £549.99

To continue with this outdoorsy theme, Buy Sheds Direct have some great offers for sheds and summerhouses. If it is time for an upgrade or all your ‘stuff’ seems to be multiplying, they have a variety of sheds in wood, plastic or metal, for a high-quality solution. Now, a shed may be a practical choice, but have you ever thought about a summer house? Not only can they be used for storage (or to hide from your significant other!) they can be a space to decorate and relax in to watch the world go by. Especially during this dreary weather, a summer house can be a cosy space that still feels like you are outside.

We just wanna have fun (indoors!)
