Picnics are an iconic summer activity. Take advantage of good weather and get your feast on outdoors with these essential picnic supplies. You’ll love these helpful picks for the perfect picnic. All you have to do is add food!
Instead of a picnic basket, use a large picnic tote. The PackIt Freezable Picnic Tote, Fiesta has freezeable gel walls so the bag doubles as a cooler! The comfy straps make this tote easy to carry. A dry storage compartment on top is perfect for napkins and utensils.
We love eco-friendly options for your picnic pack! Preserve Everyday Tableware Set, Midnight Blue includes reusable plates, bowls, and cups. Add a 24-pack of Preserve Cutlery (includes knives, forks, and spoons.) Everything is BPA-free and dishwasher safe! You can buy Preserve tableware sets in other fun colors like green and red, too.
No picnic would be complete without a soft picnic blanket. SONGMICS Outdoor Waterproof Picnic Blanket, Blue Stripe made of cozy fleece cover, waterproof EPE backing and selected foam, making it not only soft and cozy to sit or lay, but also keeps you away from moisture and sand. You’ll have plenty of room for your picnic spread. Plus, this picnic blanket easily folds up into an easy-to-carry tote with handles.
In addition to napkins or paper towels, I bring wet wipes to our picnics. These help us clean our hands before and after eating, and wipes make it easier to clean up any spills.
After you’ve enjoyed your picnic, be sure to clean up after yourself. Don’t leave any trash behind. I like to tuck a small garbage sack in with our picnic supplies so we have a way to carry our trash out.
