Spring Picnic and Travel Essentials
Get my 6 Must Have Spring Picnic & Travel Essentials!
I love having an outing at Allerton Park, taking a trip to the beach, heading to a music festival or exploring sites abroad… So as we start to see the sun coming through the clouds with the hope of sunnier days ahead, I thought it would be the perfect time to round-up a few of my spring essentials!
When planning what to eat and drink for my outing, I enjoy getting local fruits, nuts and snacks. Often if I find myself abroad, I will go to a market to stock up on fresh eats. One tip to give you is to consider if the warm weather will wilt your food.
For example brie cheese doesn’t hold up well in the spring sun, so try more hard cheeses. Well enough talking about food, let’s get to packing with the go-to essentials you’ll finding my picnic & travel basket with spring just around the corner.
The Picnic Basket & Bag

It pairs perfectly with my picnic basket that has all the dining essentials. Their products are made by makers who have benchmarks of ethical supply, quality products and minimal impacts to the environment.
