Autumn is over! Winter, with its frosty mornings and darker nights is upon us.
Are you planning on hibernating for the next six months till the temperatures get over 20 deg again? Should we close up the picnic hampers and store our bbqs?
I sure hope you are yelling NO WAY to this idea!
And you would be right there – I happen to love hitting the trials and enjoying Winter Picnics as often as possible. As a family we will also go on our annual blackberry picking Picnic and fill our Picnic Hamper full of warm sausage rolls and cheese pie! What are your favourite Winterl Picnic foods?
Whilst we all love our traditional Picnic Hampers, I have to be honest and say we see far more Picnic Backpacks and Cool bag Backpacks being bought from around December till Late March. Oh and lets not forget that waterproof backed travel rugs and blankets are totally a MUST for the comfort!
Our Picnic Fans are also adding in Thermos Flasks and Vacuum Sealed Food Storage to take hot food and soup with them. I also see a lot of new picnic sets being sold…perhaps that’s with people wanting to freshen up their picnic baskets after summer/autumn.
Also we have some great ideas for still getting out at home during Winter. Since covid struck and we were lockdown so many friends have joined us in building outdoor areas at home. Indoor outdoor living is thriving. Do it on the cheap with a pop up gazebo with sides and add in a hot tub lazy spa and fairy lights for some romance and fun. Or get a fire pit bbq and seating for the perfect winter warmer on chilly nights (I love cook outs around our firepit!).
To help you make the most of the beautiful Great British and Irish countryside this winter we have launched our new walking and hiking products guides as well. We review the things we had to buy when we started to get outdoors more and we include all those kids things as walking can be brilliant family fun. From walking boots to hiking jackets, hats for all occasions (and weathers) and socks that wont blister your feet or break the bank we have you covered.
