The last bank holiday of the year is almost upon us and the new school term starts soon, time to squeeze every last drop possible out of these last few days of the summer holidays.
If you are heading outdoors this bank holiday weekend we have we have everything you need to make the most of your picnics. We have stylish and sustainable ideas for eating on the go, with a range of re-usable items.
Take a look at our guide to picnic essentials:
1. A good blanket
Every great picnic starts with a good place to sit. Once you've found that perfect grassy bank under a shady tree, lay down a throw and enjoy lunch in style.
In store we have a great selection of throws and blankets that make that perfect picnic spot extra cosy - like this new green/natural cotton throw. With a woven texture, diamond stripe design, it's sturdy enough for outdoor use yet soft enough to be comfortable indoors and out.
2. Keep warm and stay cool
Make sure your cuppa is always hot and your sandwiches are always chilled with these check pattern cool bags and ceramic travel mugs. They make any picnic a stylish affair and are equally good for those days when you are back in the office or lunch is on the go.
3. Stay hydrated in style
Reduce your single use plastic waste and stay hydrated in style with theses double walled water bottles. The double wall is designed to keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for up to 6 hours.
With a natural bamboo finished screw top lid, and convenient carry handle, this consciously designed and manufactured drinks bottle is available in 500ml or 750ml size, in colours: black, rust, putty or green.
4. Cutlery & Straws
Reusable, stylish and functional - these bamboo cutlery sets are super lightweight, can be easily washed and reused. Each set comes with fork, knife and spoon + their own fabric carry bag. An essential accessory for your rucksack or picnic basket.
These re-usable silicone straws are another picnic basket essential - lightweight, easy to carry and they come in their own fabric bag. Each set contains four straws and a handy cleaning brush. They also colour co-ordinate perfectly to the water bottles above.
