Summer Gadgets with Steve Greenberg

1. The Flower Bed Perfect Hole Digging Bit

Make gardening easier than ever with this drill bit. Attach the powder-coated steel bit to a standard 3/8-inch drill and get going. Similar tools might just till the ground, which means you have to shovel out loose dirt, but this nifty attachment uses angled blades to extract the soil, leaving behind a perfectly round, flat-bottomed hole.

2. WFan Wearable Hands-Free Fan

Stay cool on the go with this portable, wearable fan. The band comfortable sits on your neck and won't constrict your movements. The flexible arms on the device can be moved in any direction, so you can control where the cool air hits and the long-lasting battery life will keep the fan operating all day long.

3. Misty Mate MistPro 3 Personal Mister

This reusable, non-aerosol mister is battery-free, eco-friendly, and is a must when you're outdoors. Bring it anywhere to give yourself a spritz of cool water, and since it operates off air pressure and water, there are no worries about it ever running out of power.

4. The Brighter BBQ Light

Get ready to grill all day — and night — long with this light, exclusively available from Hammacher Schlemmer. The LED light attaches easily to the top of any grill and illuminates your cooking area with 200 lumens worth of light. With a six-minute auto-shutoff, you never have to worry about accidentally leaving it on.

5. Thermacell Shield Mosquito Repellent Metal Edition

Create a mosquito-free zone with no chemicals or sprays. This patio shield will create a 15-by-15-foot "zone of protection" against the airborne pests, and its cordless, compact form makes it a great complement to any outdoor setting.

6. WineGrasp - Set of 2

This neat little gadget ensures that you'll never spill a drink again. The patented clamping system and rubber grips easily attach to just about any chair, table, porch railing, pontoon boat and more, creating a cupholder wherever you go. Perfect for stemmed wine, martini, margarita and champagne glasses, they're great for any setting.
