Plan the Perfect Father's Day Picnic

Father's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the special man in your life than with a delightful picnic? At Regency Hampers, we believe that a well-planned Father's Day picnic is the perfect way to show your appreciation and create lasting memories. Check out our guide to organising an unforgettable Father's Day picnic, complete with mouth-watering food ideas, an ultimate checklist, and the ideal gift to surprise your dad.

Top Five Father's Day Picnic Food Ideas

  1. Gourmet Sandwiches: Prepare a selection of artisanal sandwiches with his favourite fillings, such as rare roast beef with horseradish cream, or smoked salmon with dill and cucumber.
  2. Charcuterie Board: Assemble a delectable charcuterie board featuring a variety of cured meats, cheeses, olives, and crackers for a sophisticated picnic spread. Our Cranfield Fitted Picnic Hamper With Alcohol Free Presses includes premium smoked salmon and a vintage mature cheddar waxed truckle that would be great additions to your charcuterie board.
  3. Scotch Eggs: A quintessential British picnic staple, Scotch eggs are sure to impress your father. Opt for a gourmet twist by using high-quality sausage meat and a perfectly runny yolk.
  4. Pork Pies: No British picnic is complete without traditional pork pies. Choose a well-made, flavourful variety that will tantalise your father's taste buds.
  5. Fresh Fruit Skewers: For a refreshing and healthy dessert option, thread a colourful assortment of seasonal fruits onto skewers and serve with a zesty lime and honey dip. The Badminton Picnic Hamper With Sparkling Wine comes with fresh apples and bunches of red and green grapes that would be ideal for your fruit skewers.
