Looking to step up your picnic game? Keep the beer cold, the jams playin’, and that tush comfy with these 8 summer picnic essentials.
8 Summer Picnic Essentials
1. Drink Tank Stainless Steel Growler
Whether you want some delicious microbrew or homemade kombucha, this insulated Drink Tank growler keeps your favorite frothy beverages carbonated for days. Combine it with Drink Tank’s Keg Cap system, and it’s like having a mini portable keg.
2. Stanley Classic Vacuum Pint Glass
Stay classy. Don’t drink that delicious beverage out of a red solo cup. Instead, grab one of these insulated pint glasses made by Stanley. It will keep your drink cold for hours, and the lid – which has a built-in bottle opener – prevents accidental spillage.

3. Alite Meadow Mat
This Alite Meadow Mat is a compact waterproof blanket that is super easy to clean and fits up to four people. Then when you are all done, it rolls up into itself and has a built in handle making it easy to carry.
4. FUGOO Sport Bluetooth Speaker
No picnic is complete without some tunes. And I hate to sound like a broken record, but I seriously love my FUGOO speaker. It comes almost everywhere with me, and a picnic party is no exception. It’s waterproof, has a 40 hour battery life, and the sound quality is far better than any other bluetooth speaker I’ve tried. Read my full FUGOO review here
5. Crazy Creek Camp Chair
6. Ascot Eco Picnic Cooler for Two
This handy Ascot picnic basket has place settings for two, including silverware, plates, and plastic wine glasses. It also has an insulated cooler to hold all of your food and a separate compartment that is big enough to hold two wine bottles.
7. Snow Peak Chopping Board Set
This Snow Peak Chopping Board Set comes with a super sharp knife that is conveniently (and safely) stored inside the folding cutting board. And it’s just big enough for that cheese and charcuterie spread.
8. Glow in the Dark Frisbee
Once you are done snacking, stretch out those legs with a game of frisbee. While any old frisbee will do, this glow in the dark Nite Ize Flashflight Disc-O frisbee lets you keep the party rolling into the evening on those warm summer nights.
