We are delighted to see the sun shining out of our window today, and hopefully we’re in for something of a heatwave if the forecasts are to be believed (which we do…cautiously) so today we are calling in the return of the Great British picnic with our range of country gifts for outdoor dining.
The Diamond Jubilee, Wimbledon, Ascot, even the Olympics – there’s plenty of opportunities this summer for us to get outside with family and friends to enjoy quality food in the sunshine. If you are heading to any special event we’d love to hear where you’re off to – drop us a line on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
To take full advantage of the variable and often unpredictable British summer, a well made and water resistant picnic rug is a must-have item. We have three quality picnic rugs available on our website that are fantastic for rolling up and taking with your to all manner of events and days out. The Random Rug Roll from Tweedmill Textiles is a quality rug that is durable enough for the whole family to enjoy. It is made from recycled material and benefits from a waxed waterproof backing layer which is very quick to dry – perfect for enjoying those sunny spells between showers!
If you know someone who always likes to be prepared with everything needed for a complete picnic, our Insulated Picnic Backpack for two or four people is a perfect gift. The backpacks are made using a high-density insulating material and are designed to keep food and drinks cool for up to four hours. They include plates, cutlery, wine glasses, a cheeseboard, bottle opener and even salt and pepper pots – all you will need to add is some delicious food! Even filled with a luxury picnic these backpacks are comfortable to wear, and can be a great accompaniment to a hike, bike ride or day trip.
All of our outdoor dining products make fantastic country gifts for those who like to get outside and make the most of the warm weather. Stylish and practical, they are made from the very best materials to offer years of service and really can be items the whole family can enjoy.
