Rain, rain go away... Well, we can hope, but we don't think it's going to happen. So better to be safe than sorry and always keep an umbrella handy. But who wants to have a normal one when you can have this samurai sword handle umbrella?! You can play ninja for a night (or weekend it seems, according to the weather report) with this "water warrior" that not only will protect you by the torrential downpour Hurricane Danny is supposedly bringing upon us, but can also double as a protection weapon.

So you might think there would be no need for a survival kit in the Hamptons. After-all, what would you possibly need to survive here? But we beg to differ. This handy-dandy kit has everything you need to make it through a weekend of events, parties, and late nights out. It has a compass if you have no idea where you wake up in the morning after a rough night at Pink Elephant (staying in Southampton and end up in Hampton Bays the next morning? Problem solved)...

The GofGHamptons crew was finally introduced to the Flip Video Camcorder over the weekend and honestly, we don't know how we survived the summer so far without this palm-sized recording gadget. The easy-to-use camcorder fits in any purse or pocket and is the perfect tech accessory for capturing your beach-going, party-crashing, club-crawling adventures across the East End. More»
[Photo via Hammacher] Ever go into the kitchen to grab a cold beverage only to discover that the beverage you wanted is actually warm? You are then forced to either wait for your beverage to get chilly in the refrigerator or take that warm beverage and put it over ice, likely watering down your drink to a poorly tasting mess. However, this hot-cold issue will never be a problem again with the One-Minute Drink Chiller. Yes, it does exactly what you would think, it cools your drink is a swift sixty seconds... More»
[Photo via Blue&Cream]The East Hampton retail hot-spot Blue & Cream has done it again. One of the newest additions to their very popular "Lamptons" collection, are these Purple Lamptons Sweatpants. With a nice little tribute to the beach, the faded white to pink logo is accentuated with seagull prints and will perfectly match your (most likely already owned) Lamptons hoody. Seriously, who doesn't love "Lampin' in the Hamptons". We certainly do and have been pining over the Lamptons collection all summer. You can be sure that giving these cozy sweats as a gift will make your host very happy and possibly secure yourself a second invite back... More»
[Photo via Hammacher] Around since 1848, the people at Hammacher Schlemmer have done it again. This time they have created one of the coolest gadgets called The Intelligent Grill. At a somewhat reasonable price of $799.95 for a high-end grill, the intelligent grill is truly one of the coolest outdoor gadgets to own or give as a nice gift this summer. The grill esentially automatically cooks your food to your preferred "doneness".
Less was more for Plum TV's gift bag up for grabs at the "It Might Get Loud" Hamptons Screening after-party at Blue Parrot Saturday night. This bag of goodies might not have been over flowing with loot, but no one seemed to mind. Finding a bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc, delicious Tate's chocolate chip cookies, and a free of Sperrys thrown into an L.L. Bean tote, is certainly nothing to complain about. Full list of goodies below... More»
[Photo by OlympusAmerica] This digital camera is the Lou Ferrigno of all digital cameras.

[Photo via Hammacher] Who said the act of treasure hunting was forever a pirate pastime? You too can be part of the treasure hunting club. The Hamptons is certainly not immune to the economic woes facing the nation, and therefore a few extra gems and rubies can never hurt.

We are sure you have heard of a swim up bar, but have you ever seen a bar that swims up to you!? At a quick glance, this picture looks like an ordinary floating drink holder...Think again. This pool toy is not only a drink and food holder, but it is remote control operated. For a mere $50, you can have your own Remote Control Snack And Drink Pool Float and be able to serve your guests in the pool without ever getting up from your lounge chair.
