10 Reasons Why a Picnic Rug makes a Great Fathers Day Gift.

Posted by Adam McDonald on

When it comes to gifting a picnic rug, one would normally consider that it is more of a female gift idea than a guys gift idea (me included).

It was only the other day I had a though around this, when Emma and I went for a hike while travelling around Oz and while her mum had come to visit us in W.A (kinda made it a date hike).

We were sitting on a secluded rock edge in a national park overlooking some Western Australian awesomeness, when it hit me that I really enjoy the places a picnic takes me to eat a meal.

I get to go places I can do some fishing, kick a footy around, play some cricket ... it usually means we are catching up with friends and maybe enjoying a couple of beers.

All good things in my books, and why a picnic rug is the perfect gift for that hard to buy for Dad ... As I bet he has never been bought one before.

Anyways, as usual I have to turn my thoughts into an excuse to write a blog post, as I look for any excuses to keep my SEO agency off my back.

Here are my TOP 10 reasons why a picnic rug is a cracking Father's Day gift.

  1. Quality Family Time: A picnic rug encourages spending quality time outdoors with family. It provides an opportunity for dads to bond with their kids and create lasting memories together.                                                             Dad enjoying a family picnic.
