Summer is here which means we will hopefully see some fantastic weather over the next few months. So it's definitely time to start planning your summer activities!
Armed with your tent and camping chairs it's time to pack the car up, grab some shopping, get the kids and set off on a weekend camping adventure. With hot spots up and down the UK, there are an endless amount of stunning places you can pitch up for the weekend.
Packing for camping can be one of the hardest challenges. The last thing you want is to realise you’ve left all the toiletries at home when you are in 30 miles from civilisation and have no phone signal. Here at Quince we love adventure and spending time with loved ones. We want to make this as easy as possible for you, so we’ve compiled a guide of camping accessories for your trip. All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the view!
1. Happy campers are full campers!
You'll be needing a cooler filled to the brim with food, snacks & drinks. There’s always something quite exciting about eating out in the wild.
You’ll probably need something to cook your food on as well! Disposable BBQs are easy to pick up but if you plan on camping regularly then a travel BBQ will be perfect!
This gorgeous Kadai Bowl is the perfect size for taking with you when you go camping and comes with a cookware set. The Cookware Set has a Dome Lid for roasting, a pair of hand-forged Skewers for kebabs and a Grill Tray for cooking meats, vegetables, fish and halloumi. It all packs away neatly into its own cotton Duffle Bag for carrying.
Ditch the disposables and invest in endless amounts of full-tummy camping nights!
2. Remember to keep hydrated out in the wild...
Pack up lots of water, juice and maybe a bottle of wine for when the kids are tucked into their sleeping bags. If you’re off on a walk as well you will need extra water to keep you hydrated!
Whilst remembering to pack food and juice, you’ll also need to remember to pack cups, plates and utensils!
These enamel cups are perfect for camping, and they look good too! They are quick to hand wash and if you want the whole set you can add in a matching tray and jug. Camping in style has never been so easy...
These gorgeous Meri Meri lemon cups are perfect to pack up for the kids! This pack of 8 will do you the whole weekend and are suitable for both hot and cold drinks.
3. Stay fresh whilst out camping...
Just because you’re off camping doesn’t mean you can’t stay fresh. Pack some toiletries up including toothbrushes, baby wipes and remember a few hair bobbles (they have so many uses they will definitely come in handy!).
A pack of three toothbrushes ready for your travels, we think these are gorgeous and the perfect camping travel accessory!
Then pack it all up in one of our handy zig-zag wash bags, big enough to fit your toiletries in to and still look stylish.
4. Camping with little ones
If you plan on going camping with the whole family, it can be quite daunting. Remembering to pack a few goodies for the kids will keep them happy whilst you wrestle with the tent!
Dress Up Lion Mane
How cute is this?! The young ones will be ready to roar in the great outdoors in this adorable dress up mane. You’ll never be able to get them back indoors! Let the wee ones run wild and make the most of their outdoor getaway.
We’ve also got this cute-as-a-button alligator scarf. Now we hope you won’t need to use it because it will be so warm you'll feel like you’re in the Bahamas. However, just in case the evenings are slightly chilly this alligator scarf will keep the kids warm!
Now you’re armed with your food, you’re hydrated, you’ve got your toiletries and the kids are happy. You’re all set for a weekend away in the gorgeous countryside, the only thing left to do is relax and enjoy.
