Perfect Picnics  

Melamine plates and cups coupled with a sturdy thermos and reusable food storage containers make for the perfect way to pack and serve your picnic. To save time designate a hamper or bag to store your picnic ware, toss in a Swanndri picnic blanket and you’re ready for the park, pool, beach or bay.  

 

Ready For The Rellies 

Keep the freezer stocked with Angel Bay patties, chicken kebabs, lasagne slabs, cake and cheesecake slabs, savouries and bacon & egg pie and you’ll be prepared for a relaxed lunch or dinner when relatives drop by.

Check our grocery section here, or come in store to stock your freezer for the summer ahead.

 

Gorgeous gifts

Candles, diffusers, soaps, hand cream and body wash are a special way to say thank you to someone this Christmas. Have a few extras in your gift drawer and you’ll always have a treat for someone, even at the last minute!

Stock up on supplies 

If you want to put your feet up for a week or two then plan ahead and save yourself a trip to town. Stock up on staples such as coffee, tea, milo, peaches, tomato sauce, washing liquids and even toilet paper.

Hunters, gatherers and campers

Getting ready to hit the back country, get off the grid or go bush? Then be prepared with torches, headlamps, knives, lighters, batteries, thermals, gloves and a set of gaters.
