Celebrate post-lockdown in style with these online picnic goodies, including 60% off picnic blankets, cheese boards, plastic glasses and portable barbecues.

COVID restrictions are finally easing in parts of New South Wales. Up to 5 fully-vaccinated people can gather outdoors. Better yet, children under 12 years of age don't count.

In other words, you can now enjoy a picnic with vaccinated friends and their pre-teen kids without breaking the rules.

With that in mind, we've gathered some of our favourite picnic essentials into one handy guide. If you're planning a picnic this weekend, be sure to snap up some of these products to make it that extra bit special.
