Ah, the sun’s out, the surf’s up and the kids are out of school -— it’s just how summer should be in Hawaii. With all the perks of summer shining bright, make the most of it by planning a picnic right in your own backyard. Check out some of the great items we picked up around the island and get fun ideas for your next family picnic! 

1. RIO Folding Beach Chairs

These portable folding chairs are an excellent addition to any picnic outing. The aluminum frame cuts weight while still providing solid support. When not in use, they fold down and pack easily into the trunk of a car or against the side of a closet. What’s more, they can be adjusted to five different reclining positions, even lying flat. The aluminum support bar works double-duty as a handle for transportation or a place to hang your towels while you relax. Available at Hardware Hawaii, find more at hardwarehawaii.com

2. Lyfted Hammocks

There’s nothing quite like relaxing under the shade, while gentle breezes rock you to sleep. And there’s nothing quite like these hammocks either. The new product, by Lyfted, is one that’s guaranteed to be a hit at your next outing. Weighing in at less than a pound, these lightweight hammocks can be stuffed into a built-in pouch when on the go. Setup is simple and easy and the parachute nylon is extremely durable. Every aspect in its design is carefully considered and has a purpose. Available at select local stores, find more at lyftedhammock.com.

3. Weber Original Kettle Grill

Picnics just aren’t quite the same without the smoky aroma of a charcoal grill and lots of delicious food to go around. Whether you’re grilling savory steaks or barbecuing saucy ribs, this Weber charcoal grill can handle whatever you throw at it. Vents around the grill’s design allow for ideal air circulation and heat distribution. It’s also coated in a glossy porcelain-enamel to resist corrosion and wear, so you can keep on cooking in style for many years to come. Available at Hardware Hawaii, find more at hardwarehawaii.com.

4. String Lights 

Don’t let the sun stop you. Enjoy your picnic well into the night with outdoor string lighting. The soft light creates an inviting ambience to enjoy the evening with loved ones. Be sure to look for ones that are designed for outdoor use. Available at Target, find more at target.com.
