With the May Long Weekend slowly approaching, and the sun beginning to shine, with warmer weather on the horizon we can begin to crave that country air with Cottage Season on the way! As Canadians, May Two-Four weekend marks the start of the up-north living where individuals head to camp and cottage. Since we know this is where the REAL summer party begins, we decided to put together a list of essentials to help you prep and pack for the long weekend festivities ahead.
Whether you are planning a picnic in the city, a fire at the campsite, or lounging dockside at cottage – we have the right products for you! Keep in mind that these amazing products can be used throughout the summer season, since outdoor season rolls right into Fall. If you’re looking for the best promo to give away in the months to come, considering camping and cottaging is an amazing fit for any Canadian demographic.
Here are our top picks for Long Weekend Essentials:
1. A Great Duffel Bag
This organized duffel bag allows you to hang your clothing selection on the nearest hook or hanger, giving you full access to everything you brought. Not only does this keep you organized throughout your weekend getaway, but it also lets you keep yourself packed the entire stay so you don’t have to rush when it’s time to leave. Over-packing is typical of us Canadians who have learned that with unpredictable weather, you must be prepared for every scenario. This bag ensures you bring just the right amount and in an organized manner.
2. Some Lazy Clothing
Whether you are camping or at the cottage, comfy attire is key. Keeping warm and comfortable is necessary for any given scenario. Lazypants is a company that dedicates itself to the pursuit of comfort. With apparel for both men and women (female products showcased below), this brand is one everyone will be sure to love. Cozy up next to the fire or in your tent with the most luxurious lazy clothes you could ever imagine.
3. A Lantern & Bluetooth Speaker
Whether it’s by the lake, by the fire, or on the road to your destination – music is essential at all times. Of course while in the great outdoors, lighting can be limited so it is also necessary to carry a lantern or flashlight while enjoying nature in the dark. This product offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to light the night while jamming out to your favourite tunes.
4. A Sleek Cooler For Your Drinks
We all know that long weekend and a two-four go hand in hand. Having a cooler close by to keep your drinks cold is key at all times. This cooler also converts into a seat so that you can sit by the lake or by the fire, with your refreshments right beneath you. We love the multi-functional ability of this product, which also allows for some cool customization (pun intended).
5. A Trendy Container For Your Cool/Hot Drinks
This insulated mug makes for a trendy piece that keeps your drinks either super hot or cold, depending on what you’re in the mood for. So whether you’re having a cold one by the dock or warming up beside the fire with some hot chocolate, this is the perfect product for you.
6. A S’mores Kit
If you’re by the fire, then s’mores are a Canadian essential. Ensure you have all the right ingredients ready with this custom s’mores kit. Giving this out to your clients and employees will have them thanking you after their getaway. They’ll be more than pleased to talk about how perfect your gift was when they are back at work.
7. A Warm Blanket
Having a warm blanket at night when it gets cold is a must. This blanket folds conveniently and is great for travel. Not only is it very practical for carrying around, but it also has the softest material to keep you snuggled up throughout the night. Putting your brand on this one is a great idea.
8. Some BBQ and Kitchen Accessories
If you’re camping, picnic-ing, or at a cottage, chances are you will probably be BBQ-ing as well. Ensure you are well prepared in any scenario with this 3 piece set. As well, these are the perfect utensils to ensure you toss the perfect salad. The Salad Fingers are not only fun to use, but are extremely mess-free and will ensure everyone is happy with a healthy side.
