    Prime Day 2021 has come at the best possible time for those of us who booked vacations in the blind hope that such things would now be allowed. (When I say we, of course I mean myself.)

    Yep, I had already bought a guidebook, a swimsuit, and three disposable cameras, only to find last week that the furthest I’m likely to get this summer is a sun lounger facing the garden fence. So I take action and redeem the serotonin from the canceled trip would have provided by going full in on the Amazon Prime Day sale.

    From beauty deals to discounted Kindles, this year’s savings are truly impressive. (And they’re only until midnight tonight. So if you haven’t done your shopping already, really, what’s holding you back ?!)

    And while I’ve racked up a lot of skincare products and housewares over the past couple of days – thanks to CeraVe and Le Creuset – there’s a Prime Day bargain I’m especially proud of. Enter: this amazing Aperol Spritz offer.

    I mean, it’s practically a vacation in a drink. Here’s all you need to know.

    Duo Aperol Spritz – was £ 24.99, now £ 18.79 (save 25%) | Amazon.com
    Who needs the sunny Italian coast when you taste it in a summer cocktail? In this practical duo, you will get a 70cl bottle of Aperol, as well as a 75cl bottle of fresh, Cinzano Prosecco – everything you need for a perfect evening in the open air. (Even if that only means your back garden.) Now £ 6.20 off for the rest of the day I think it would be just rude not to do that and buy five.

    Aperol Spritz gift box – was £ 25.00, now £ 19.49 (save 22%) | Amazon.com
    I buy this one in the name of personal care. With two adorable Aperol glasses (no, before you ask you can’t have it in just any old glass) and a 70cl bottle of the classic Italian aperitif, this is the ultimate gift for yourself. Just add Prosecco and ice cream, and voila: you might as well be in Tuscany.

    So if you need me, I’ll just drown my sorrows in front of a solar lamp with a glass of Aperol in my hand and Greater splash screaming from my laptop. Which is basically the same thing. Right?
