1. Fly Away
Fragrant with a blend of oils such as sage, cinnamon, and cedar, this incense from the Floral Society uses essential oils to chase off insects. Smells so good you might want to burn it inside. $60 at www.food52.com.
2. Go Solo
The sleek, portable Solo Stove makes grilling (and cleanup) fun and easy, even for novice grill masters. Good for hungry cooks, too — it heats up in 15 minutes or less. $775 at www.solostove.com.
3. Glow on
Set the mood wherever you go with the Koble Neptune lantern and speaker. It will play your favorite music and light up the night in 10 different colors. $105 at www.food52.com.
4. Take a Tumble
Test the steadiness of your hand with these outdoor “tumbling timbers.” The towers can be as tall as 4 or 5 feet — depending on the size you choose. The blocks are crafted from sustainably sourced New Zealand pine. $50–$80 at www.food52.com.
5. Get comfy
Picnic blankets are fine for a little while, but a camp chair lets you enjoy the outdoors far longer. This exceptionally comfortable PT-XL camp chair from Oniva offers extra room for big and tall types. $124 at www.picnictime.com.
