It’s finally holiday time at Nourish HQ and we’ve got our 6 top picks for our holiday packing! With
staycations being the order of the day (none of us could cope with getting organised enough to get on a plane, soooo confusing at the moment) we’ve all been camping and self catering in some of the gorgeous spots around the UK. But what are the little luxuries and must haves that we always take with us to make our holidays feel just that little bit more holiday-ish? Taking just those few things that make you feel at home is essential to holiday success, we definitely don’t want to wake and not smell the coffee for a start!
Our road trip essentials include high currency snacking! You know, the snacks that you’d fight over normally, we make sure we pack plenty when we’re going to be in the car for a while. Obviously our Coconut Macaroons in their super sharing packs are a perennial favourite, once we can agree on what flavour to take! But, we also love the crunchy peanut from our friends at Superfoodio, it’s gone in 60 seconds but is worth every nibble. Fancy trying it for yourself? Just use the code - Roadtrip20 - for 20% off across the Superfoodio site.
Rise and shine sunshine
Nothing can be worse on the first morning of your holiday than realising that there is just a dusty old jar of instant, or maybe a single herbal teabag at the back of the cupboard and your peaceful morning, warm drink, aspirations have been shattered. Okay there are worse things, like a leaking tent, but a good, hot drink will make that feel better too. We always pack our Rave Coffee, ground and ready, Coco Loco chocolate flakes for amazing hot chocolate, or the Sonnentor Golden Latte powder. Use the code -ESSENTIALRAVE- at Rave Coffee for a 10% discount this month (excludes subscriptions and gift cards).
Smelling good, feeling great
Especially when the British weather has not been kind there is nothing quite like a warm shower after being caught in a downpour! While the camp showers aren’t always the most alluring place to be some deliciously scented shampoo bars and soap will definitely help to improve it! We love the refreshing citrus scent of Kushboo’s Shampoo bar, it’s the perfect wake up tonic after a night under the stars. Lucky enough to be away with a bath at your disposal, then their geranium and rose bath soak is a must have to soak away that final bit of pre-holiday tension. Use the code - holiday20 - for 20% across the Kushboo range for the rest of the month.
Wrap up warm
The great British beach can be a wonderful spot if you’ve gone prepared, but how many of us forget the most essential bit of kit when we stop off for a sandy stomp? We don’t know about you but until we came across Dock & Bay we always forgot a towel, cue damp children and soggy feet. Their travel towels pack away into a handy little pouch, which means that it fits into a handbag or rucksack. Super absorbent and made from 100% recycled materials they’ve become and essential part of our summer days out kit! Use the code -NOURISH15 - 15% off orders above £20, valid until 19th September.
As much as while we are away we love to shop small and support local, it’s always good to have a few essentials on board before you go so that a quick supper can be knocked up if you’ve had a late arrival. Getting our Abel & Cole delivery the day before we travel and not even unpacking the box has been the simplest way to take what we need with us. With their range of pantry essentials, including Nourish Macaroons, grab what you need for your favourite meal, or try out their brilliant recipe boxes for a simple supper. Check out their sign up offer of a free 4th box and take advantage of all their other wonderful produce from people like us!
With camping, picnics and outdoor living at the top of our list at the moment we've kitted up with some super bamboo cutlery from those clever people at Jungle Culture! Presented in an easy to pack jute fabric roll inside there is everything you might need, including a straw and straw cleaning brush (they have thought of everything!). As you know we are totally crazy about coconuts here too and so the Jungle Culture Coconut bowls are right up our street as well, perfect for a little campfire bowl food! Use the code - NOURISH15 - and receive 15% off any order on their site, Jungle Culture.
