Summer Picnic




We found four picnic accessories available for under $50 and asked staff members which one they'd be the happiest to receive.

And the winner is...

1. Classic Picnic Basket

This traditional picnic basket is made by New Hampshire's own Peterboro Basket Company and has smooth swing handles for easy one-hand carrying and a split hinged wooden lid. The hand-woven basket also comes with a 36-inch table cloth that matches the liner. Available in natural, cherry or honey.

What to do with dirty dishes when the picnic is over? The easy - and eco-friendly - solution is Bambu Veneerware. These paper plate alternatives are certified organic and made from 100 percent bamboo, so when you toss them when you're done you can go home guilt-free.

Prices vary. Plates range from $5.95 to $10.95.
