Labor Day Weekend marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. As climates in most cities remain the same, calendar happenings change as we shed the summer fun activities, and embrace to enter holiday season preparation. Most Labor Day outings consist of final beach visits for the weekend, or the blowout BBQ party leaving behind an unforgettable summer. Wherever your escape takes you, here are some of our favorite items to pack in your beach bag, picnic basket, or cooler.
The perfect Labor Day Weekend will need the proper bag. Brace yourselves, a rainbow tote bringing us happiness by Bando is also a cooler bag not only to keep your drinks fresh but also doubles as an insanely cute purse. Your beach game just keeps on getting more and more epic for only $35.
Fill this cooler with the perfect transportable drink with no hassles- Electric Sky Wine. In partnership with music powerhouse Interscope Records, Electric Sky is the first premium, consumer-friendly wine born out of music. The wine comes in convenient, single serve, stackable portions with four easy-to-sip varietals: French Rosé, Italian Pinot Grigio, California Moscato, and California Red Blend. Designed for an on-the-go lifestyle, Electric Sky comes in a unique 750mL bottle that snaps into four pre-filled, shatterproof glasses of wine, which are 100% recyclable and BPE free. Convenient and portable, Electric Sky allows consumers to enjoy their favorite wine at any given location. The single serve glasses are also perfect for occasions where only one glass of wine is desired, without having to open a whole bottle.
Pack the cooler with another drink that can get the conversation going with Budweiser’s new State packaging for summertime only, and will last until September. In celebration of over 140 years in business, the brand will swap its namesake on bottles and cans with each of the 11 states where the classic lager is proudly brewed. The brewery markets featured on-pack include California (home to two Budweiser breweries), Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, and Virginia. So, knock one back and start a fun state conversation with a LBDW friend with these fun brewskies.
Cocktails, please! The cooler cannot hold all your mixers, liquor, or other beverages, so space is limited, yet essential. However, for those non-beer and wine drinkers apparently, you need to be toting the Stainless Steel Shaker33 – Cocktail shaker made by Savino. Before you leave home pour your mixer and choice of liquor into this shatterproof BPA-free Tritan™ large enough for hefty cocktail batches to be mixed at once. It is leak proof and easy-to-open with a lockable lid that features a Dual Flow strainer for a slow or a quick pour.
Now that we are all prepared to be tipsy and not thirsty, pack up your favorite charcuterie necessities, crudité essentials, and must-have dips with the Container Stores picnic best sellers. Each of these containers serves a purpose, and once purchased you will be the picnic/ outing packing master. The stainless-steel tins are perfect for snacks and dips. The utensil carrier is essential. The cheese stays fresh container is ready to serve made easy. The cover flex silicone lids will make your life simple and satisfied with whatever you cooked and shoved into the dish to eat and go!
On one arm, you will have your cooler, and on the other, a tote that will turn into the most comfortable folding blanket. Made from nylon and polyester brought to us all by Vista Blankets. We love these blankets because the totes come in 7 stylish fabrics and at affordable prices. The blankets are padded and large enough to fit many people. The best part of this Labor Day must-have is it is machine washable. This blanket can serve as a landing pad for your party, or a heat saver when cold.
How are you going to drink or eat all this goodness? Would you believe me if I told you there is a flat item that could make your plate, bowl, or cup? Think Fozzil, the lightest, easiest way to carry tableware in the world! A Full-size Cup, Bowl, and Dish feature with an easy to use a snap system. Fresh colors and graphics let you eat in style anywhere. Fozzils are perfect for hikes, picnics, boating, traveling, a park BBQ, anywhere.
Let there be light and no bug bites. Sure you can bring a fancy, swanky, candle, but it will probably burn out in less than an hour, only attract bugs due to the fragrance, and not even light up the picnic. We recommend, Coghlan’s Citronella Candle to help illuminate your way on your next outdoor adventure. It features a pleasant aroma of citronella that does double duty, repelling insects while it burns. This product has a burn time of up to 18 hours. It is lightweight and easy to transport. This item is encased in convenient packaging that will keep its scent from leaking out and scenting your other items. You can stash this insect repellent candle in your backpack for light on the go whenever you need it.
