Packing Checklist

Our iVillage members share some of their favorite things to bring for a fun and fabulous picnic.

"A few essentials are:

  • Cooler fully stocked with ice or ice packs
  • Picnic basket
  • Food storage containers
  • Picnic blanket or tablecloth
  • Antibacterial gel
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunscreen
  • Utensils/plates/cups
  • Napkins/paper towels
  • Condiments
  • Plenty of water/beverages
  • Towelettes/paper towels
  • Trash bags


Don't litter. Take along a trash bag or other receptacle for collecting your trash so that you can deposit it in the proper trash receptacle." —
