LED Lighted Patio Umbrella

Available in 11 shades, this patio umbrella provides a cool, shaded area on hot summer days and offers extra lighting once the sun goes down. Its 24 solar-powered LED light bulbs glow for up to six hours, and we like how the crank handle allows you to set the umbrella up or fold it down in seconds. Place it near your outdoor dining table or conversation set so the party can continue into the night. ($65; walmart.com)
