Picnics symbolize romance, good food and nature on an ideal summer day. However, the disappointment is often great when the romanticized picnic, as exemplified by Pinterest or Instagram, cannot live up to expectations. So as not to dampen the mood, here are the 10 pieces you should pack for your summer picnic.
10 must-haves for a picnic
1. Picnic blanket
The blanket turns your picnic into a picnic. It’s the base. Models with a coated surface on the underside are often a good choice. Especially when the grass is still slightly wet from the morning dew, the entire blanket will not get wet. A simple blanket or even a carpet can also be used. These are ideal on dry surfaces, such as stone floors, pebbles or wooden walkways.
2. Picnic basket
An ideal picnic basket contains dishes, cutlery and glasses. So everything is quickly to hand. A picnic basket that also contains a cooling section is ideal for keeping snacks cool in the summer heat.
If the picnic basket does not have an integrated cooler, a cool box should definitely be taken along for the picnic. This way you can enjoy outdoor food even after a long bike tour or a day of swimming without having to eat anything that is not edible.
4. Wooden board
A good surface to eat on is also important for summer picnics. With a good wooden board you can also cut and arrange your food on grass.
5. Swiss pocket knife
The pocket knife is an all-rounder – especially practical if you don’t want to take too much with you. To cut the cheese, pull the wine cork or smear the bread.
6. Snack box
Preparation is essential for picnics. Fruit, cheese, sausage and other snacks can be packed in practical boxes, already cut.
Especially when it gets darker in the evening, some candles or outdoor lamps light up the darkness and make it cosy. This way you don’t have to leave early and you can still spend warm summer nights in nature.
8. Thermos bottle
A good thermos bottle keeps drinks not only warm but also cool. This offers the ideal refreshment in summer.
Cosiness is the top priority. Pillows not only make the picnic “instagramable” but also comfortable.
