Ah, warm days at the park. There’s nothing quite like gathering the family — or simply yourself — and enjoying a peaceful day outdoors. Shop some of the essentials we like to bring along:

Is there anything quite like sitting in the shade and enjoying a good book? For an ereader option, the Kindle Paperwhite is a lightweight e-reader option that stands up to bright sunlight.

A good water bottle keeps you hydrated — we’re big fans of the best-selling Owala FreeSip + this insulated stackable tumbler from Asheville NC-based retailer Pirani.

Don’t forget the travel-size bug spray and sunscreen.

These sunglasses from Nordstrom Rack are available at discount prices + have a style for everyone.

Keep it all together in a handy tote bag — these adorable tote bags are all crafted by small businesses and local makers.
