    PackIt Freezable Backpack Cooler

    To keep your picnic cold during transport, just freeze this cooler backpack the night before, fill it, and go. It’s comfy to carry and easy to clean; plus, the outer material boasts radiant-shield technology, which deflects the sun’s heat.

    Manna Insulated Wine Carafes

The insulated carafe keeps the wine chilled for up to 24 hours. The twist-and-pull acacia-wood lid acts as a cork, so you can skip packing a corkscrew too.
