5 Gift Sets That Make Picnic Planning a Cinch

There's no need to add extra stress to your relaxing afternoon.

July has a lot going for it, including Independance Day, sunshine and warm weather. But the steamy month also has the distinction of being the official month of outdoor dining. That's right, July is Picnic Month. AKA, now's the time to plan that perfect summer picnic!

And while picnics are supposed to be a relaxing excursion, they can end up feeling surprisingly stressful — expecially if you don't have the right products to throw together a picnic basket. So to make the process a little smoother, we rounded up a few gift sets that make planning a picnic unbelievably easy.

1: Napa Botanica Picnic Basket Set

This handy basket comes stocked with wine glasses, a corkscrew, a food container, a cutting board and cheese knife. Best of all? It also comes with a blanket. So all you have to do is throw some leftovers in the food container and grab your favorite bottle of vino.

2: Gourmet Picnic Pack

If your picnic concern is more about the food than the basket, this little gift set will be right up your alley. It comes with a gourmet cheese (with truffles!), salami and mixed olives. Yum!

3: Joie de Vin Set

This stocked gift bag is perfect for planning a wine-heavy picnic — joie de vin does mean the joy of wine, after all. The reusable tote includes paper plates and napkins, paper placemats, coasters, two stemless wine glasses and even a bottle of Chardonnay. There's also a notepad and set of bottle tags that will help you remember your picnic after the fact.

4: Picnic Adventure for Two Set

This gift set comes chock full of tasty snacks that are sure to keep you and your guest full and happy throughout the day. We're talking several sausages, pistachios, dried fruit and three different cheeses.
