Although it might not quite look like it yet, the official start of Spring is just around the corner and here at Littlewoods Blog HQ we’re getting a little bit excited about the warm weather! Picnics, days out to the beach or just lazing about in the garden with a book will soon fill our weekends, so we like to make sure that you’re prepared!
For those trips to the beach, the countryside or family picnics in the park, it pays to have the right tools for the job. After all, soggy sandwiches on wet grass don’t always make for fond memories! Get things all wrapped up with a colourful picnic kit; this bright stripe picnic hamper comes complete with plates, cutlery and even napkins! Handy for transporting your lunch wherever you wish to go.
If you need both hands though then opting for a picnic backpack is also a modern option, this Epicurean one come with a handy keep-cool drink holder, so there will be no more warm lemonade with your lunch!
If you’re heading to the beach, the park or on a day out then the most important thing you willneed is the all important picnic blanket, otherwise you face insects, dirt, not to mention damp clothing if the ground is still a little wet. A picnic blanket, like this Epicurean one, should have a damp proof backing that keeps away the wet ground and is also easy to brush clean!
When the sun comes out though, we don’t always fancy venturing out – instead preferring to catch some rays at home in the garden. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee or catch up with friends around a table in the sunshine – we love this Amalfi wicker style garden furniture set for a simple outdoor dining experience or check out our garden furniture department for inspiration.
If sitting at a table isn’t what you want for your garden, and you just want to stretch out and lounge around, then Big Hugs have got the perfect thing for you – a giant indoor/outdoor beanbag! This beanbag makes for comfy lounging, indoor and out and is dirt resistant. It comes in a variety of colours too – so whether you want to go au natural with a green or brown, or stand out in a vivid red or purple, you can pick your favourite! Or for a space you don’t have to share, you can enjoy the sunshine in style with this retro style cocoon hanging chair.
Whatever you’re planning for this summer, make sure you’re prepared for at home and days away!
