Celebrate the Last Weekend of Summer With These 25 Picks For an Epic Labor Day

By Paige Alexus
Though the idea of summer coming to an end is a sad realization for many of us, there’s one good piece of news—Labor Day weekend festivities are approaching.

As the unofficial last weekend of summer, Labor Day has become the official time to take in the last long, warm days while celebrating with friends and family. On September 4, make sure to take the chance to spend as much time outdoors as possible and enjoy the people you want to surround yourself with. 

To make this happen, you’re going to need some tools—and we have you covered. Take a look below for our end-of-summer picks that will equip you for an epic weekend, whether that includes taking a group trip to the beach, organizing a picnic, or hosting a BBQ or dinner party at your home. 

If You're Heading to the Beach

Turkish T Carry Handle Striped Beach Throw
Beach day, handled. This big and easy striped throw is ready to drop everything and head to the beach at the drop of a straw hat.

If You're Throwing a Backyard BBQ

The Companion Group Grilling Grids (Set of 2)
Pop these handy grids on the grill for an instant cooking surface perfect for cooking smaller cuts of meat and delicate fish.
Crow Canyon Home White & Grey Enamel Drink Dispenser
There’s no better way to serve big-batch beverages to a crowd than by having guests serve themselves out of a big ol’ classic drink dispenser. This one comes in classic white with grey trim and looks great with a set of matching mugs or tumblers.
Terrain Low Cross Leg Fire Pit
Crafted from durable iron that ages beautifully over time, this fire pit makes a practical, modern addition to the backyard.

If You're Planning a Picnic

Dot and Army Outdoor Net Food Cover
Nothing spoils a great picnic or dinner outdoors faster than bugs and gnats. We collaborated with Dot and Army to design these lightweight net food covers, exclusive for us. We wanted something easy to fold up and carry with us, but also pretty to keep our picnics picturesque.
