I know bars, restaurants, and dance floors are officially back in business — and thank goodness for it, amirite? But, please, I beg all of you not to let that banish the humble picnic from our social calendars. I mean, just think: you get that ripper hot summer night park ambience, endless charcuterie boards and quality time with friends. I don’t see any of that in a sweaty nightclub, hey? So, pack your picnic basket and, of course, a picnic blanket, and plan your next park celebration now before winter rears its ugly head.

What’s that? You don’t have one? Thankfully, that’s no excuse because we’ve rounded up a range of different blankets and rugs, from your classic patchwork rugs and quilted blankets right through to ones that can be pegged into the ground for a day at the beach. The best part? They’re all under $90, which means you can spend more dimes on your snacks and booze instead. Thank us later.
