Since the days are already getting shorter, we need to harness that dog-day summer sun to illuminate our outdoor evening festivities. What better way to do that than with these modern Solar Light Balls from Poketo. Their robotic, futuristic looks and neon hues are a welcome departure from the typical brushed nickel and bronze of those other solar lights. At $35 each, they are a touch pricier than what I’d typically spend, but even just one waterproof light would give high impact and a year-round shot of fun to any yard. Heck, I think they’re cool enough to use indoors, too! — Megan B.
