Bonfires are one of my favourite summer activities. There is something so blissful about gathering around a fire with your closest friends and family and enjoying the calmness of nature, good music, and making memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are also into campfires, you need to check out these essentials listed below that will elevate your experience:
1.) A moderately loud Bluetooth speaker
Some good music can be the exact edition you need to go with your night. If you don't own a Bluetooth speaker, you don't need to spend a ton of money on one because it really only needs to be at a somewhat decent volume for a few reasons:
- If it's too loud you can't enjoy the fire crackling and sounds of nature
- You want to still be able to hear the conversation around you
- It will likely be later at night that you're having the fire and won't want to risk disrupting neighbours.
I use the Marley Get Together speaker which lasts up to eight hours.e
2.) Rome's Marshmallow Tree Fork
I found this amazing tool when I was glamping last year at Whispering Springs. It's shaped like a tree branch and can roast up to ten marshmallows at a time! I've had it for over a year and it's still in great shape.
Grab yours here.
3.) Celebration Cookies
These are an amazing life hack because these include both the chocolate AND the cracker! All you need to buy is marshmallows because you get two in one with these, and they are delicious.
Pick them up at your local grocery or convenience store.
4.) This Playlist
The ideal mixture of oldies and new songs complements a calm atmosphere and sense of togetherness.
5.) City Bonfires
Living in the city? No problem - City Campfires can make all of your dreams come true!
This portable fire tin is perfect for park dates, balconies, and small backyard hangs. It's easy to light, extinguish, and store. Place it on a hard surface like a brick or stone, light it, and you're good to go.
All you need to do is cover the lit to put out the fire. Let it cool, then place it wherever you'd like.
Grab yours here.
6.) Blissed Chocolate Truffles
These chocolate truffles from Blissed are ganache-filled dark chocolate and a smoke-free way to enjoy cannabis around the fire. Each piece has 5 mg of THC and 5 mg of CBD creating the ultimate feeling of relaxation.
They are also fair trade!
