Let’s be honest, 2020 has been the year we’d like to forget. Why not treat yourself to some game day splurges, because, hey, who knows what this year will bring next.

Check out these finds for the ultimate backyard tailgate.

The Chair

If you’re going to be sitting in the backyard for hours, a typical outdoor folding chair just won’t do. Be prepared to be in for the long haul and get yourself an outfit like this Folding Cooler Chair from The Sharper Image. It’s comfortable and it’s got plenty of room for refills.

The Tent

If you’re a pregame parking lot regular, you’ve probably already got protection from the elements. If you’re looking for something new or something that won’t be a complete eyesore when it’s set up in the backyard, consider this pop up tent with side walls from Amazon.

The Grill

The perfect grill may never be found, but we think this one from Weber comes pretty close. The Summit Grill Center is sure to please even the pickiest of grillers.

More of a smoker? Check out the Traeger Pro 575 Wood Pellet Grill.

And why not splurge on this Shade Trend steel grill gazebo from Wayfair?

The TV

This probably should’ve been at the top of the list. Your viewing vessel is the key to an excellent outdoor experience and you can’t underestimate the good times it will bring. Although pricey, an outdoor TV is the way to go and you can find them in a range of prices.

The Cooler

I mean, you’re not going to go into the house every time you need, ahem, a soda and an actual refrigerator in the garage might be too costly, but you can keeps things cold with the Yeti Tank 85 Ice Bucket. This 20 gallon baby will be your best friend. If you really want to go all in, then look no further than this powered portable cooler.

The Generator

Keep things running with this Dewalt Ultra Quiet portable generator. Not only great for tailgating, but this will come in handy for camping, power outages and more.

The Sound

No tailgate, home or away, would be complete without music. Hook up this bluetooth, waterproof, portable speaker from Sony for the ultimate outdoor sound.

The Games

When there’s some down time, offer your guests the chance to show off their corn hole skills. All ages enjoy this classic game and maybe it will keep the kids busy for awhile. Design a custom set of your own or even go for a travel set from Wicked Cornhole.
