10 Must-Have Picnic Gear Items You Have to Get!
Check these must-have picnic gear items off your list and take any picnic from "meh" to memorable.
Picnics, by nature and almost by definition, are inherently easy. You’ve heard the expression applied on occasion that something is “no picnic” insinuating that picnics have set the bar for how simple something can be. It’s not untrue. However, a poorly planned picnic can be a complete disaster. Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of grass stains and ant bites to prove it. A successful picnic involves more than just food and location, so I’ve compiled a list of picnic gear items guaranteed to make your next picnic excursion simply perfect.
Camping Picnic Caddy
For starters, every picnic planner needs a picnic caddy. Carrying snacks, condiments, plates, and more is a much easier task when using a caddy to corral it all. You’ll thank yourself later for choosing one with a moisture-resistant PVC coating for easy cleanup and for the strap handles that allow you to carry it over your shoulder to keep your hands free for waving everyone over. You’ll thank yourself now for the price.
Sand-Free SandLite Picnic Mat
Every avid RV enthusiast knows the value a sand free mat brings to the table… or rather the ground. A place to stand, sit, or dance without having to worry about dirt or sand ruining the party is enough to add several of these mats to your list of on-the-road must-haves. Made from a soft, lightweight, and quick-dry material, this picnic mat will keep sand away and folds small for maximum convenience when not in use.
Igloo 20-Quart Sportsman Cooler
If you’re anything like me, you like your music loud and your drinks cold. For the latter, rely on the Sportsman Cooler from Igloo. Virtually indestructible as a result of its rotational-molded construction, this cooler will last you through your next picnic and beyond. The heavy-duty 3-point grab handle has a comfort grip for easy transport. What more could you ask for? A drink? Right. With a volume of 20-Quarts, everyone gets a nice, cold, refreshing beverage. Guaranteed.
TOKK Reactor XL Bluetooth Speakers
Back to the music; play your favorite tunes using this rugged, waterproof set of speakers that run the risk of dominating every conversation. Sound extreme? Just look at them! Two magnetized hemispheres are combined to create a compact ball for a modern look. Separate them and have twice the listening power. Offering eight hours of playing time and a connection range of up to 30 feet, you’ll have to add MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” to your playlist because everyone is going to be tempted to turn up the volume.
Seina Compact Folding Outdoor Utility Cart
Assuming you’re not having a picnic on your RV steps, there might be a short walk involved to reach the perfect picnic destination. No worries though! Thanks to the Compact Folding Utility Cart, carrying everything all at once is easier than ever before. Lighten your load and let the cart do all the heavy lifting (up to 150 lbs. in fact). External pockets offer the perfect solution for storing smaller items without losing them along the way. Not only will this picnic gear item prove itself a valuable member of the picnic preparation, but it folds almost in half for easy storage. That’s called a win/win!
Portable Picnic Table with Benches
Let’s face it, sometimes the perfect picnic spot doesn’t have a picnic table set up and waiting. No hard feelings, of course, especially when you have a portable picnic table to remedy the situation. Lightweight enough to transport but constructed of strong aluminum to support you and your meal without fail. Convenient and practical, It’s the best of both worlds. The benches and table fold into themselves creating a sleek carrying case that includes a handle, so you can be serious about having fun.
Char-Broil Grill2Go X200 Portable Gas Grill
Level up your picnic menu options by taking advantage of the Char-Broil portable gas grill. Impress everyone at the table, and those within scent-range, by grilling your food using TRU-Infrared cooking that prevents flare-ups and eliminates hot/cold spots for an evenly cooked delicacy every time. A high-impact frame and a heat-resistant handle keep transport and storage easy, while the push-button ignition provides quick lighting so you can fire it up at a moment’s notice.
Hershey’s S’mores Caddy
Since we’re bringing the heat with the portable grill, we might as well talk about dessert. Keep your S’mores necessities organized and safe on the way to the picnic by storing them in a convenient caddy. A carrying handle and a lift out tray make this the perfect addition to every picnic plan and the sweetest picnic gear item on this list.
Triumph Tumbler Junior
The fun doesn’t have to stop just because all the food has been eaten. Picnics don’t have time limits, so continue the party with a game or two. The Triumph Tumbler reaches 18 levels high when all 54 wooden blocks are stacked. Take turns removing one block at a time until the tower collapses. The loser must rebuild! I’m kidding, that’s not part of the instructions but it should be.
Adventure Wine Tote
Finish off the perfect picnic with the perfect glass of wine. This insulated tote has enough room for two wine bottles, two wine glasses, a corkscrew, a bottle stopper, and a mini acacia table for cheese. In other words, it’s custom created for those who love an adventure. Cheers.
Pack up the RV and hit the road with your eyes open for an outdoor dining spot courtesy of these great picnic gear items. Initiate a date with someone special or spark up a family game night, whatever the reason for getting out and setting up a picnic, you won’t regret it. With all this picnic preparation, your next picnic will adjust where that proverbial bar is set. The next time someone says life isn’t a picnic, tell them it can be.
