When you're planning a backyard hangout or beach day, you'll need to have a fun pool float to lounge on and something Insta-ready that'll keep your drinks chilled. If you don't already have the latter, do yourself a favor and add one of the best inflatable coolers for summer 2020 to your shopping cart ASAP.

You've seen the giant floats and mini pools, but the next inflatable necessity is a cooler. They really come in handy when you want to grab a soda or spiked seltzer (for those who are 21 or up) without having to dry off and make a trip back inside. You can even serve an entire veggie tray for your house mates to snack on, depending on which cooler you get. Not only are they essential to your summertime hangouts, but these coolers are also easy to deflate and store when you're done chilling outside.

Let's not forget that these coolers are beyond Insta-worthy, sporting summer-themed designs. All you have to do is choose which cooler fits your vibe. Go with a giant popsicle-shaped cooler if you plan on being "cool for the summer," or get a mini cooler to match your mini pool. Whatever inflatable you pick, you'll be in your very own backyard oasis, because everything you need will be right there floating on with you.
