With this summer being like a continuous heatwave, it’s fitting that July is National Picnic Month! When the weather is so warm, there’s nothing better than sitting outside to eat a refreshing salad and cooling down with a fruity drink. Whether you’re a sunshine person or you prefer sitting under the shade of a parasol, a picnic is one of those quintessentially British activities that just sums up summer. If you’re having any picnics this July (or August), take a look at our top products to make snacking in the sunshine even more perfect.
One of the most important parts of a picnic (after the food of course) is a picnic blanket. To get that vintage summer look, a classic check pattern is perfect for your picnic, with soft wool for extra comfort. Our luxury wool blankets come in a range of bright colours, which are ideal for summer!
Keeping your food safe and secure whilst en route to your picnic can be made easy with a handy dial storage container. This stylish container from JosephJoseph even enables you to set the date on the lid to when the food needs to be eaten by — perfect for serving up leftovers.
If you’re wanting to have some fun and games on your picnic, a game of boccia can be enjoyed by everyone. Similar to boules, the aim of the game is simple; to get the coloured boccia balls as close to the white target ball as possible! Perfect for playing in teams of any numbers, boccia is a simple yet fun game for all the family.
It’s important to stay refreshed and hydrated during this warm weather, with the help of a sure grip mug. The range of bright and attractive colours make these mugs great for summer, whilst the secure lid helps to reduce spills even if the mug is on uneven grass. They’re easier to hold securely, helping you to enjoy a cooling drink on your picnic!
A book is a perfect picnic companion, so why not bring along a handy reading light? These camping-inspired lights are great for placing around the blanket in those warm summer evenings, and even better if you’re camping out after your picnic.
To keep cool whilst picnicking, a rechargeable battery-powered fan can provide a refreshing breeze for hours. Despite being small, the fan creates a strong solution to humidity, making it the perfect product to take out with you on a summer’s day. The fan recharges easily with a USB charger, with enough energy to keep you cool for the whole picnic.
