For the United States, Independence Day is around the corner (It’s already July?!) and that means a day of food, friends, family and of course, Fourth of July fireworks. Take in the bright lights in style and enjoy the show with some of these stylish products.
Striped Picnic Blanket. Nothing says “Independence Day” more than a good ol’ American-style picnic. This lightweight blanket by The New Domestic is large enough that it will provide a perfect spot to sprawl out, enjoy some treats and wait for the show to kick off.
Negril Beach Chair. Whether you are watching the fireworks on a sandy beach or taking in the view on an urban deck, this folding chair is a perfect fit. Each frame is hand crafted in small batches out of North American White Oak, then stained with an eco-friendly oil for outstanding outdoor protection. As for the waxed cotton fabric, that comes from a 300-year-old company in France.
BKR Glass + Silicone Water Bottle. Between the early evening BBQ, hot summer temperatures and late-night fireworks, it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. But skip those wasteful plastic bottles and swing for this sexy 16-ounce glass bottle with its soft silicone cover. Being BPA and phthalate free, this bottle delivers pure, toxin-free H2O in a stylish silicone sleeve that protects the glass from breaking. So fill it up, sip away and enjoy.
Vostok Blanket. Wrap yourself up in one of Gallant and Jones’ soft Vostok Blankets. Made from 100 percent virgin lambswool, this grey/taupe and cream striped blanket is unbelievably soft. Each blanket is loomed in Central Mexico from wool gathered by local sheepherders that is then cleaned and processed. So throw this soft blanket around yourself (and maybe even a special someone) and take in the show.
Nantucket Wine Carrier. Be ready to pop a little bubbly and toast the red, white and blue by having this hand-woven wine carrier nearby. Made in New Hampshire, this basket will protect your favourite bottle of wine all through the night.
