Tanji is always asked for her recommendations, whether it’s for cooking tips and recipes or the tools and travel must-haves she relies on each day. And we’re answering the call!
With the weather warming up, it’s time to dust off your picnic basket for an alfresco adventure! Roll out the red carpet—or, in this case, colorful blanket—to match the bright spring season, like this one from The Somewhere Co. that’s made of fleece, with a waterproof lining underneath to keep things nice and dry. ($100)
Keep your bottle of wine chilled for hours and the glass protected with this sleek model from Vinglacé. Made of stainless steel, double-walled, and vacuum-insulated, the lightweight design comes in a variety of colors to complement your outdoor vibe. ($90)
Reduce and reuse with these cleverly designed melamine plates from Crate and Barrel. Divided into three sections, it’ll keep your sides and mains from running into each other and getting all soggy. ($7 each)
We’ll go ahead and say it: A drawback of picnicking is having to eat off your lap and inevitably dropping your food on the ground. This game-changing tray from Bee & Willow is portable and lightweight—perfect for steadily holding your plates, snacks, wineglasses, and even your bottle! ($30)
We love multi-use tools, and this one from W&P is outfitted with a bottle opener, corkscrew, and knife, all in one Swiss Army Knife–styled design. Made of water-resistant hardwood, brass, and stainless steel, it’s a “must-pack” for your on-the-go activities. ($35)
