The food that you bring on your picnic is the most important factor to a good, relaxing time. Whether you’re taking a break in your own backyard or enjoying a sunset on the beach, the food you pack can make the experience even more memorable. There are a few ways to bring food for a picnic, which include:\n\n Pack Your Own Food\n\nEating outdoors can take a lot of prep work so starting with the right picnic setup is key. To make things simple, take food options you can pick up easily such as chip and dip, cheese and crackers, or cut up fruit. Anything fun, colourful, and easy to pack will get the job done. Don’t forget to pack a cooler to keep all your food cold, or if you are needing to keep food warm, pack it in a pot with the lid on to keep the contents warmer for longer.\n\n Pre-made Platters\n\nRunning late or can’t be bothered packing your own picnic basket? There are plenty of places you can order pre-made platters that are perfect for a picnic. Woolworths and Coles both offer made-up platters. Simply head to the deli section and pick your favourite items for the staff to pack together. Many local grocers may create their own versions of pre-made platters, so make sure you check your local, independent grocery stores, too.\nAlternatively, you can try some of these other premade platters that can be ordered online and get delivered straight to your door. For delicious and mouth-watering options, you can try:\n\nThe Deli Platter\nPlatter Up Co\nColes Platter\nSpring Street Grocer\n\n \nWhat to Bring to a Picnic?\nOnce you have your food sorted, the next thing to consider for your picnic is the items to bring. Keeping comfortable will be our main focus, so always make sure to pack a picnic blanket and throw pillows to lean on. Elevate your comfort by packing small fold-out chairs and an umbrella for shade.\nIf you have a large group, it's important that everyone has enough room to relax and enjoy themselves, so packing extra picnic blankets and chairs will help keep everyone having a good time. You could also consider packing some games or toys, like a frisbee, football, badminton set, cards or any other picnic game perfect for big groups.\n \n\nWhat to Wear to a Picnic?\nWhen it comes to choosing what to wear to your picnic, again, comfort is key. Picking items of clothing that look stylish but that can be comfortably worn while relaxing is a must for an enjoyable picnic.\n\n Linen Shirt\n\nLight, breezy and easy to wear, our linen shirt collection offers an array of colours perfect for any picnic outing. Wear unbuttoned with a basic t-shirt or buttoned up and paired with classic shorts, linen is a great option for any outdoor event.\n \n\n Polo Shirt\n\nA classic in any man's wardrobe, our GAZMAN polo shirts are an easy choice all year round. Soft and breathable with a huge display of colour options, our polos are a great choice for a picnic in any location. Style with a pair of shorts and casual shoes or dress it up with a pair of comfortable chinos, great for when the weather is a little cooler.\n \n\n\n Pants\n\nWhile picnicking, you will most likely be sitting for long periods of time, so being comfortable without any restriction is a must. Go for our comfort chinos or twill shorts for ease of wear no matter where you are sitting. When choosing your pants, make sure to go for darker colours, to help avoid any grass stains.\n\n Rugby Jumper\n\nFor cooler days or for when your picnic is in the evenings or late afternoon, having an extra layer will help you stay warm and comfortable.
