Happy June 1st! We’ve been ready to kick summer into high gear, and to celebrate the start of Camping Month and Great Outdoors Month® we are featuring five camping essentials to bring with you on your great outdoor excursions.
Whether you’re sleeping in a tent, camper or in a camp with four sturdy walls, an indoor/outdoor rug is a must. This adventurous Camping Dog is perfect for laying down on an outdoor porch or the ground to keep your sleeping quarters or indoor spaces free of dirt. With mountains in the distance and wheels on the road, you may find similarities in your own surroundings that enhance the woodsy charm.
Summer campfires have to be the unofficial mascot of summer. Start warming up or making s’mores with a well-built fire, and if you need a little help to get the flames going, our fire starters will do the trick! With four scents to choose from, you can even make your event or trip a little more cozy.
To go along with the fire starters, our Scented Camping Mug Candles are perfect for placing on picnic tables or campground stumps for extra lighting and again, a little extra coziness. When the candle is done burning, you have a 10 ounce mug to drink from! Both the Scented Firestarters and Mug Candles are eco-friendly and biodegradable, so you don’t have to worry about leaving to big of a footprint at your camping site or forest cabin.
When you start packing snacks and food for the trip, think about using sealed tin containers for saving space and keeping your goodies fresh throughout your excursion. Our Kitchen Storage Tins come as a set of three, and while they look great in your kitchen at home, they are also ideal containers to bring along this summer.
Finally, make camping cleanup easy with Paper Placemats featuring woodland imagery to complement your natural surroundings. Printed on recycled paper with eco-friendly inks, you won’t have to worry about contributing an environmental mess on your weekend away.
