Price: from Â£20.93, Amazon
What's to love: They're somewhere between a towel, a blanket and a sarong, and can be used as all three.
MNers say: "I use them on holiday instead of beach towels. They really free up space and they dry quickly." uggmum
"I bought one after reading about them on Mumsnet, and it's brilliant. Huge, folds up tiny, and dries quickly." CMOTDibbler

towels never dry in the summer. I love them for camping as well!"

MNers say: "We have a Vango. Very easy to put up!" youngestisapsycho
"We're well impressed with ours. We camped in the winds at the tail of the hurricane last year, and it stood up very well with no damage. Pretty easy to put up with two people - and we have a six-person tent." ThatBloodyWoman
"I have a Vango Icarus, and we love it. We invested in a carpet
which makes it so cosy." puffylovett
Contigo travel mug
Price: from Â£11.95, Amazon
What's to love: Holds enough tea to last the whole day, and won't let you down with leakages.
MNers say: "My Contigo travel mug fits two small mugs worth in and keeps them piping hot. It doesn't leak either." NannyR

Price: Â£20.80, LookFantastic
What's to love: The combined magic of BB and CC cream formulas mean you get superior, even coverage with no danger of it looking 'caked on'.
