With intermittent heat waves pending and restrictions still in a bit of limbo, a picnic in the park is a stress-free way to catch up with friends. As well as being aesthetically pleasing, a picnic blanket should be waterproof, easy to clean (either by hand or in the washing machine), and easy to roll, fold, or pack away.
So, we’ve done some sleuthing to compile a list of blankets that suit every taste whilst ticking all of those boxes. If you’re looking to make an afternoon of it, make sure to take a look at our stories on the best coolers, portable barbecues, and lawn games to round off your set up. But firstly, read on for our picks of the most handsome, durable, and waterproof picnic blankets on Amazon.
This blanket comes in three equally simple but stylish designs. We particularly like this striped option. It’s extra large (78 by 54 inches when unfolded), and its strap with a built-in handle makes it easily portable.
