Question: Are you ready for Fourth of July weekend? Answer: Even if you said yes, you’re absolutely not. We’ll bet our stash of contraband fireworks that no matter if you’re hosting friends or visiting family, catching fireworks irl or tuning in on the flatscreen, there’s something you’ve forgotten to snag for the big day (and much bigger weekend).

No need to fear. Lest you forget, our fair nation is home to a little retailer by the name of Amazon. (Yay, America!) The online giant has everything you could have possibly forgotten, or didn’t realize you needed in the first place. From upgraded tech to backyard basics to entertainment for the whole family, Amazon truly has — rather scarily, too — everything you can legally buy online, all in one place. Even better, much of it will arrive well in time for the holiday weekend, granted that you place your order soon.

In the spirit of the holiday, we’ve scoured Amazon for everything and anything you could possibly need to nail this Independence Day weekend. Below, our top picks for your last-minute Fourth of July needs.
