Picnics can be a fantastic option for a date. They give you time to bond with your significant other, usually while in beautiful surroundings. If you are planning an upcoming romantic picnic, then this is the blog post for you. We will discuss the key things you need to think  about before the day as well as recommending our hampers which will make the perfect accompaniment to any al fresco date night.

Location, Location, Location

Where you choose to have your romantic picnic is incredibly important. You want to make sure that both you and your date can fully relax and enjoy each other's company. To try and avoid having to halt your date due to a sudden deluge, always check the weather forecast before and on the day of your date. You could go to your local beach and enjoy a view of the setting sun. Another option is a scenic park or your favourite rustic spot in the countryside. To set the right mood for your picnic we would suggest bringing along some freshly cut flowers and flickering flameless candles.

If the great outdoors isn’t an option, or the weather decides to be inclement on the day of your choosing, having a picnic indoors can also be very romantic. Settle down in front of your fireplace, surrounded by candles and flowers to up the romantic vibes. 

Tantalising Tipples

We have a fantastic selection of pre-made gin and rum hampers here at the Tipple Hamper Company. Handpicked from some of the very best brands, our specially prepared hampers come with a choice of packaging options to suit your budget and personal preferences. Our delightful Barbican Botanics Picnic Hamper is perfect for those who like their gin 'classic' and their drinking experience 'unforgettable'. Two branded glasses are included as well as two Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Waters.

The Plymouth Gin & Tonic Hamper features the classic taste of Plymouth Gin. This hamper also includes two bottles of Fever-Tree tonic water and two stunning glasses for you and your date.

In the Mood for Food?

No picnic is complete without some tasty nibbles. You can create a heavenly picnic with our Luxury Silent Pool Gin Hamper.

This unique hamper centres around award-winning Silent Pool Gin, made with fresh water from a spring-fed pool. The gin comes with stunning glassware and a series of irresistible treats including gin jam, boozy berries and chocolate. The boozy berries would work perfectly with some natural Greek yoghurt or velvety smooth vanilla ice cream. Pinkster’s gin jam is delicious on top of scones with lashings of clotted cream and the spiced rum truffles contain the delicious flavour of Barbican Botanics Spiced Rum.
