Picnic Blankets and Hampers. From The Bedroom To The Great Outdoors!

Picnic Blankets and Hampers. OK I know you don't usually have a picnic in the bedroom, but its summer and the sun is shining and I was reminded that we need to get out there and enjoy a picnic so please forgive this slight departure from bedrooms to the great outdoors !

Here is a selection of picnic blankets and throws of varying budget and needs and a couple of wonderful hampers with everything you need for a picnic (except the food and drinks!).

A picnic is a lovely activity to do whether you are a family, couple or spending some quality me time. Some people may want a full on hamper, others a backpack or a simple blanket. Whichever is right for you just enjoy yourselves.

Picnic blankets and hampers are great at family picnics, visiting stately homes or hiking, in the countryside, beach or fields, watching sporting events, camping, at a music festival, or simply to have a practical blanket for use in the garden or park.

Happy Picnics Picnics past and present memories.

I do love a picnic! When I was a child I have very happy memories of me and my mum and Dad and our dog all piling in the car and driving off to somewhere beautiful in the countryside and getting out the picnic blankets and all the food! Of course our dog was a labrador and she really loved any food so you had to share it all with her too.

Then we would go for lovely walks and play games, maybe stop and do some strawberry picking and then return home tired but happy. Now I don't have my dad anymore and my Mum is too ill to go on picnics anymore I do really treasure those happy memories.

These days I get the food ready for the picnic too. I enjoy making the sandwiches and treats for the picnic. We have often gone on cottage holidays in the countryside or beach and this always involves quite a few picnics which is lovely.

Also during our summer time we do try to get out as much as we can to nice places to enjoy the outdoors. This year we really need a new blanket and I really want a proper hamper so I have been looking at what choices are out there.

Camco 42801 Picnic Blanket

 Very smart looking red and white picnic blanket suitable for outdoor events, camping and any outdoor occasions. I can see this being used at horse show events, for watching cricket and school spots games and for relaxing picnics.

It has a waterproof backing to save it and therefore you from getting damp which is often very important with changeable weather. It also comes with foam cushioning which is more comfortable. That way you will have a buffer between you and any little stones or uneven grass surfaces.

All in all it is a nice choice whenever eating outdoors or you need somewhere to sit with a little more comfort.

Fleece Stadium Picnic Blanket - Waterproof & Windproof  

Lovely traditional looking fleece blanket. The colours are very pleasing, suitable really for anyone of any age. It is very practical as with the checks and darker colours you would not so much notice any small stains and it wouldn't be a disaster if something were dropped or spilled on it.

If the ground is damp it will not get through this blanket which is important as it is not nice sitting on damp sufaces!Also very good for a windblocking stadium blanket, or would be useful for camping.

I think this stadium picnic blanket is also excellent to keep and carry in the car. It would be very useful if passengers need a little extra warmth or children need covering up if they fall asleep.

It would also be good for if you get bad weather and if the car breaks down and you are left without heating for a while and need covering and some protection until help arrives.
