Spontaneous camping weekends are the best kind, you can just pack up your car and hit the road, but having the right equipment it a must. With everything you'll need for a campervan roadtrip, a midsummer festival or simply a romantic camping weekend for two, let us help you plan your newlywed outdoor adventure.
Pick the perfect tent
Starting with the basics and choosing the right tent for you is a must. Whether you want compact and light-weight or spacious with a touch of luxury, carefully consider your needs and what will work best for your trip.
We love Kampa for their variety of modern, quick-erect, light-weight tents perfect for touring, festivals and weekend use.
Pack the essentials
Once you have your tent sorted, you'll need to fill it with all the essentials. And with Coleman’s range of sleeping bags, airbeds, tables, chairs, shelters and even outdoor lights you'll never want to leave your little home-from-home.
Prepare a feast
After a night spent in the great outdoors, you'll be ready for a hearty breakfast and much needed cup of coffee to set you up for the day.
Thanks to Victor’s delightfully simple range of enamel mugs, plates and bowls you can eat alfresco in style. Gentlemen’s Hardware has you covered with their hipster collection of travel mugs, coffee percolators and coffee presses. And who doesn’t love a breakfast BBQ? The Cookut Yaki BBQ is not only stylish, but portable too so breakfast, lunch and dinner can be on the go wherever you like. Outdoor dining never looked so good!
For a lovely outdoor picnic, turn to Willow Direct and their gorgeous array of picnic hampers designed to cover all of your outdoor dining needs, from china plates and wine glasses to napkins and that all-important bottle opener.
As the evening draws in, light a fire, toast some marshmallows and relax with some of your favourite tunes. Weber will keep you warm and toasty while Bose provides the ambience with their range of portable speakers. The perfect end to a perfect day!
Catch some zzzz's
For a great night's sleep look no further than Bundle Beds - the future of sleeping outside! A self-contained double bed consisting of a super comfy self-inflating mattress, a snug 15 tog duvet, pillows, fitted sheets, pillowcases and duvet cover - simply unclip, unroll, unzip and you are ready to go (or sleep!).
Just because you’re sleeping in the wilderness doesn’t mean you have to forgo your daily skincare routine. For the dapper gent, Gentlemen’s Hardware has you covered with their handy Travel Ready Grooming Kit so you can shampoo, wash and moisturise without taking up too much space in your bag. And for the girls who just want to zone out at the end of a long day Yes Studio’s kit will help set the mood. Simply pop on the sleeping mask, spritz on some pillow spray and...Zzzz.
Get your game face on
Now it’s time for some fun! No outdoor trip is complete without some good old-fashioned (friendly) competition. Uber Games has something for everyone with their Multi-Sports Set. The perfect accessory for a trip to the beach, it contains everything you need for a game of cricket, football, rounders, frisbee and beach tennis.
For those partial to a more extreme way to pass the time, Virgin Experience Days will definitely get the adrenaline pumping. Thrill seekers will love White Water Rafting but if you prefer to stay dry Hangloose at The Eden Project will take you to dizzying heights. Just don’t look down...
As the evening draws in, gather round a toasty campfire and make your camping trip one to remember with some entertaining card games courtesy of Gentlemen’s Hardware. Whether you prefer cheeky drinking games, hilarious honesty or classic poker you’ll be laughing the night away.
