Glad is all about love, really. It’s top of mind when we’re thinking up new things to make your life easier – so for us, Valentine’s Day is just the cherry on top.

Seriously, there’s not a lot more romantic than a picnic, so when you’re stumped for a truly loving Valentine’s gesture, grab the baskets, umbrella, blankets, flasks, ice bricks, and a bottle of bubbly, and we’ll tell you how to make it the tastiest, most titillating picnic possible.

Pack the baskets with stunning foods for a starlit supper, or brunch in the late summer dappled forest sunlight. Choose easy, delicious treats and forget the knives and forks – who needs them when you have fingers? A beautifully packed feast is central to any Valentine’s Day treat and honestly, it’s really easy when you get the basics right.

Big favourites are portions of cold roast chicken, sliced beef or lamb, cured pork, meat pies, hearty sandwiches, boiled eggs, and slices of fancy cheese. The vegetarian and vegan alternatives can be just as tempting with the possibility of seared greens and veggie quiche. And then there’s the option of tarts, cake, and cookies to follow.

Use GLAD Zip Seal Snack Bags to protect and store the edible delights.

  • If you’ve prepared plates of food, cover them in GLAD Cling Wrap to avoid spills.
  • Used dishes store neatly in large GLAD Zip Seal Freezer Bags, ready to drop into the dishwasher when you get home – and you can hand wash, rinse, dry, and re-use the bags.
  • GLAD has a wide range of refuse bags that are perfect for cleaning up after a picnic.
  • If Valentine’s day dinner at home is for you and your love, go ahead with the safe knowledge that GLAD has got your back with GLAD Bake & Cooking Paper to wrap meat, chicken or fish in individual portions to bake or steam in the delicious flavours you choose.
  • If pudding is going to be a stunning home-made ice cream, seal chocolate chips and crushed nut toppings in GLAD Press’n Seal, pop them in the fridge or freezer to keep them fresh and ready to sprinkle.
  • For a romantic end to the evening, drop and chill some chocolate-dipped fruit on a plate lined with GLAD Bake & Cooking Paper to stop them from sticking.
