Top 5 Picnic Blankets


Hi! I'm Jennifer and I'm the subject matter expert for picnic blankets! What makes me an expert in picnic blankets? Well, I go on picnics! I also have a baby.

Picnics are a great way for me to get some fresh air with the baby, but picnic blankets are useful for so much more than just picnicking! For one thing, we have carpet in the living room, really soft and easy on the baby's knees once he starts crawling, but have you ever dealt with a diaper explosion that got ground into a beige carpet? So yes, I need something washable between the baby and the floor.

So I went through blankets with the intention of finding one that is great as both a picnic blanket and a play mat.

And though I haven't taken my dear son to the beach yet (I hear all they do is eat sand at that age!) I know the blanket I choose will be perfect at the beach too!

Summer time means outdoors and picnic and beach fun, and the best way to enjoy the outdoors is to have a great place to sit, lay down, or eat.

So I compiled a top 5 picnic blanket list that are not only stylish and comfortable, but will also keep you dry and protected from the often damp grass or sand. I was also interested in blankets that can double as baby play mats!

JJ Cole Outdoor Blanket


This blanket is so stylish and comes in quite a few patterns and designs. It's well-loved by reviewers and I can totally see why! The design is bright and fun and the blankets itself is easy to carry because it folds up into its own carrier. I love the water-resistant material and  it is apparently comfortable to sit on.

This blanket was my runner up, and I really don't think I would have been disappointed with it!





I loved this one too because it was a very similar concept to the previous one (To be honest I like the patterns on the first blanket better, which is why that one is my runner up) . This is a nice large blanket that apparently folds up small and compact to make it easy for you to carry around (so useful when you are going anywhere with a small child! I want something I can fit in my diaper bag!). The design is bright and modern, but might not scream "picnic" as much to me...




So this blanket was my first choice and I love it so much! I love, love, love multi-purpose items, so this blanket was just the best for me. The pattern is so funky and nice and the company has other products in the same pattern.

This transformer of picnic blankets is also a small insulated cooler bag (perfect for milk bottles) and a small shoulder bag depending on the configuration!

So practical!




I had a feeling this blanket was totally my husband's style and he agreed with me. It's definitely his favorite and he thinks we should get it for our next camping trip (once the baby is old enough for camping).

Plaid is really in style this year, but this blanket has the look of a timeless classic! It is extra large blanket and should comfortably sit your family (unless you are the Brady Bunch or something), It has a waterproof backing (a must have in my books!) but the surface you get to sit on is soft and cozy!

Roebury Picnic Blanket & Beach Blanket

This blanket is available in such fun designs that are very different from the previous options! I love the one pictured in this post! The flowers are so bright an fun and a turquoise blue background!

It folds up into a cute tote bag which could also double as a cushion for you to sit on (I love multi-purpose items!)
