10 things that should not be missing at your next picnic

1. picnic blanket

You want to have a picnic and have already found the perfect place? Then spread out your picnic blanket and make yourself comfortable. A blanket that is coated on one side is best for this. Then everything is guaranteed to stay dry.

2. picnic basket, backpack or bag.

Everyone is a different picnic type. So you have to decide for yourself which transport option you prefer for your picnic: a picnic basket with cutlery, cups and plates already integrated? Or do you simply carry everything on your back or quickly and easily in your hand in a carrier bag? The choice is yours!

3. food

No picnic should be without food, otherwise it wouldn't be a picnic. Let your imagination run wild! But remember to adapt the food to the weather conditions. By the way, you can find great picnic recipes to make yourself here!

4. drinks

Delicious drinks are also part of a perfect picnic. Something cold from the cooler in high summer or warm cocoa from the thermos flask in winter? There is a suitable drink for every season.

5. napkins

In case something goes wrong, you can use napkins. Simple towels or similar are also suitable. The main thing is that it makes everything clean and can be washed out and reused.

6. bottle opener/corkscrew

Wine or a cold beer goes well with a picnic. To enjoy this, you should always have a corkscrew or bottle opener with you. But even if these useful helpers are missing, there are endless ways to open bottles. Just put your dexterity to the test!

7. sharp knife

For bread, fruit, vegetables or whatever: a sharp knife is an extremely useful tool for a picnic. After all, you want to enjoy the food in bite-sized pieces. In a pinch, your bare hands or teeth will do.

8. container for waste

The most important thing after the picnic is to leave the place as you found it. Rubbish or food leftovers belong in the rubbish bin. As this may not be available in some places, rubbish bags should also be on the packing list or other containers in which you can take the waste with you and easily dispose of it at home.

9. tableware, cutlery & cups

Of course, everything can be eaten with your hands or drunk from bottles. But to ensure that the picnic is also aesthetically pleasing, simply take crockery, cutlery and cups or glasses with you. But here too: reusable is worth more.

10. camera

A picnic is a moment of peace, of joy, a moment for friends and family. Everyone likes to think back on such moments. To capture such moments for times to come, remember to take a camera with you if you don't always have a mobile phone anyway.
