The Basket

Make the gift of a picnic easy for your friends and family with a picnic hamper. These baskets have everything your loved ones need for an alfresco feast, including delicious gourmet food, wine, and desserts. They also come with a blanket and picnic accessories, making them the perfect way to enjoy a day in nature.

You’ll find a wide selection of picnic hampers on Hotfrog, so you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. Some even include a picnic table and chairs to make dining alfresco even easier. The best part is that you can buy them online, so they’re a great option for last-minute gifts.

The Adelaide natural oval wicker picnic basket is a beautiful choice that will show your loved ones how much you care. It can comfortably seat four people and features a premium wicker construction that’s lightweight and durable. It also comes with a glass top to keep the food and drinks protected from the elements.

The Picnic in the Park is a community event featuring music, comedy, and food. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with your family and friends, while supporting a local business. Tickets are available online, and proceeds benefit the Urban Design Trust’s advocacy for open streets.

If you want to make your next picnic extra special, consider giving a gift from Adelaide’s specialised picnic food and beverage businesses. These companies offer a range of personalised picnic hampers, including wine tastings, cheese and meat platters, or even a romantic picnic for two. These hampers are perfect for impressing a loved one on a date or for celebrating a special occasion.

Another great option is the Mystery Picnic. This self-guided food adventure is hosted by AmazingCo and allows guests to explore a local region while solving clues on their smartphone. They’ll collect various items to fill their picnic basket at different stops along the trail, then visit a stunning secret picnic spot to enjoy all of the local artisan foods acquired throughout the experience.

The Blanket

Whether it’s for a date night, a family picnic or just an afternoon of relaxing with the kids in your backyard, a blanket is essential for alfresco dining. Luckily, Adelaide has plenty of options to choose from.

A blanket is a large cloth or sheet used for covering the body or a seat. It is usually woven of soft materials such as wool or cotton, and can be used for sleeping, sitting, or simply lying down. Originally, blankets were used by men and women to protect themselves from the elements. In modern times, blankets are used for comfort, warmth and decorative purposes.

If you want to enjoy a gourmet picnic with the kids, you should definitely consider purchasing a large blanket that is suitable for outdoor use. This will make your picnic more comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. It is important to look for a high-quality blanket that will withstand the test of time and be resistant to the elements.

A blanket should also be comfortable enough to lay on for long periods of time, especially if you are spending the day outside. It should be made of a soft material that will not irritate the skin or make you feel itchy. It should also be easy to clean and maintain.

Chopping Board has everything you need to enjoy a picnic in style. They have a great range of local and imported produce all bundled into their Grazing Boxes and Picnic Baskets. These hampers are perfect for picnics and can be purchased online. The Grazing Boxes are designed to feed 2-3 people while the larger Picnic Baskets are ideal for 3-5 people.

If you’re looking for an even more fun and exciting way to spend a day in the Adelaide Hills, you should try a Mystery Picnic. This experience is the perfect combination of a food trail and a treasure hunt through a local region. It’s planned and booked by AmazingCo, and it begins with a clue sent to your phone that will lead you to different stops to collect your picnic food.

The Food

The key to any great picnic is the food, and fortunately for you Adelaide has plenty of delicious local produce to choose from. There is everything from fresh seafood to gourmet cheeses, cured meats and of course wines. There are also plenty of restaurants and cafes to pick from too. The famous Central Market is home to a number of cafes and restaurants selling everything from savoury bites to sweet desserts, plus there are fresh seafood stalls where you can grab the day’s catch.

Grazing boxes and platters are a must-have for any al fresco dining experience. These are the ideal way to share food with friends or loved ones and can be customised to cater for individual dietary requirements. Adelaide-based company Chopping Board have a wide range of options for you to chose from including a variety of locally sourced ingredients that are bundled up into gorgeous grazing boxes and hampers.

Another option for a gourmet picnic is the d’Arenberg Cube, which is set amongst the vineyards in McLaren Vale, one of South Australia’s premier wine regions. As well as a restaurant and cellar door, the d’Arenberg team offer a number of exciting events and workshops. These include a wine blending experience and a guided tasting, which is perfect for any budding oenophiles out there.

If you prefer to be pampered, there are also some great options to be found at the local markets and boutique cafes. Rundle Street is the best place to head for a brunch at a trendy cafe or lunch and dinner at one of the many historic pubs. There are also a few winery tour options for those who would like to get out and about.

Adelaide has a host of Amazed dining experiences on offer, which can be booked and paid for online. They include all the essentials of a delicious gourmet picnic hamper, including a hamper, blanket and glassware. A great gift idea for any foodie in your life.

The Drinks

A good picnic is all about food and drink, which is why a well-stocked hamper is essential for outdoor summer events. Whether you’re heading to the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Bondi Openair Cinema or one of the many music festivals around the country this year, pack your own gourmet picnic to enjoy with family and friends. Tomato tarts with pesto, prawn cocktails, eggs with curried stuffing, mini chicken schnitzels with roasted garlic aioli and rocket served on a dinner roll or a watermelon salad with red onion, chilli and feta are perfect for alfresco snacking.

A hamper is also the best way to avoid having to spend money on overpriced food and drinks at outdoor summer events. For example, the Australia Day celebrations at Parramatta Park will have food stalls and a rooftop bar, but patrons are encouraged to bring their own picnics. The same goes for the Bondi Openair Cinema, where visitors can bring their own alcoholic beverages but only in sealed bottles.

If you don’t want to make the effort of packing your own picnic, buy a hamper from a local market or online retailer. You’ll find a great range of options from supermarkets, gourmet food stores and wineries. Choose from a variety of sizes and designs, including hampers with a wine cooler bag for two.

Alternatively, you can book a Mystery Picnic experience from AmazingCo, which combines a self-guided food trail and treasure hunt through a local region. The company will send you a series of clues via app to help you find hidden gems at each location. The final clue will lead you to a stunning picnic spot for a delicious lunch.

The company has a wide selection of food and beverage experiences, including brunch, lunch or dinner vouchers for Adelaide’s top restaurants, hole-in-the-wall favourites and artisan producers. ‘Be in the Good Books’ also offers personalized gift boxes that can be used as a romantic gift for couples or to celebrate special occasions.

The ‘Micro Cider Co Adelaide Hills Gourmet Picnic Basket’ includes a mixed six pack of Micro Cider Co’s vintage ciders, $80 of small goods/ charcuterie from Skara Smallgoods Mt Barker and a $50 chocolate voucher from Red Cacao Chocolatier Stirling. It’s the perfect gift for someone special, or a fun and creative way to celebrate a holiday.
