You shouldn't have to sully a textile every time you spend an afternoon in the park. But between the delicious snacks you bring with you and whatever grossness is on the ground below your butt, that's what always ends up happening. Neither dewy grass nor Milk Duds will sour your day if you've got this handy tote in tow.
This blanket from Fruitsuper Design ain't your ordinary checkered ground cloth. It's got water-resistant fabric on both sides that'll keep things from soaking in, and it rolls up easily like a yoga mat so that it's always just seconds from being as ready to go as you are. A $100 is a small price to pay to save your grandmother's quilt. [Fruitsuper Design via Designgush]
