Trunk Blanket2 597x430

Blanket

L.A.-made Campover ($165) is two layers of cotton sandwiched between flannel batting, so it’s soft and durable yet still lightweight.

Trunk Basket 597x430

Picnic Basket

Keep a couple Ziploc baggies inside a collapsible tote basket ($14) to fill with ice from any random soda machine, and you’ll definitely be chill. It's big enough to fit sandwiches, a salad and even a bottle of wine.

Dog Bowl

Because wherever you go in this heat, Fluffy will be thirsty. This collapsible dish ($10) is her version of a water bottle.
