Picnic Must-Haves For The Summer


A good picnic blanket is a must. Look for one that is machine washable, water- or sand-resistant, and easy to clean.

This large picnic blanket has numerous size options and rolls up easily with a convenient carry handle. It can also double as a sleeping bag or poncho in case of rainy weather. These insulated tumblers will keep your drinks chilled while you’re picnicking.


A hammock is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the summer breeze. Hammocks come in a variety of styles and colors, so find the one that fits your personal style and environment.

Spread out in your hammock to get your tan on. Remember to reapply your sunscreen and drink plenty of water. You can also use your hammock to stargaze at night.

Bluetooth Speaker

Large picnics and family gatherings call for a high-quality Bluetooth speaker. The mighty Drumfire from Tribit doesn’t have the name recognition of some of the big-brand players but has enough features and a beefy sound to handle large crowds.

Bottle Opener

Whether you’re packing a salad, a pasta dish or even a bottle of wine, it’s best to have utensils on hand. This set features forks, spoons and knives, plus plastic plates and a chopping board that won’t break.

Instead of a pitcher, bring this water bottle to keep cold drinks chilled until it’s time to drink. Reusable and insulated, it also comes with a small cool bag that’s wipe-clean.
