4. Portable Wine Chillers
If you’re in the market for cheap gifts that will seriously upgrade your next picnic experience, then we suggest picking up a portable wine chiller.
Now, you and your friends will be able to enjoy your favorite chardonnay in the park, on the beach, or anywhere else you love to picnic!
In most cases, all you need to do to make these work is pop them in your freezer for about four to six hours before your picnic. Then, you can take them out and wrap them around the wine bottle of your choice.
You’ll then be able to enjoy a chilled glass of wine for the rest of the day!
To really take the experience to the next level, you could also invest in a game of cornhole or a bocce ball set. Especially if your friends have sometimes been known to get a little competitive with each other, this is the perfect way to determine who is the ultimate champion.
It’s time to start planning your next potluck picnic thanks to these fabulous and affordable gifts.

This will certainly make buttering toast a lot more interesting in the morning.
The toasters can safely burn any image into bread for sandwiches, snacks, or pretty much anything else. Perfect for your friend who isn’t afraid to always be over-the-top.
