Top 5 Best Ways of Spending the Evening by the Fire

When is the last time you just stopped and enjoyed the warmth of your living room’s fireplace or set some time aside to enjoy a good BBQ with your friends and family?

The business of daily life can often overwhelm us and make us forget the joy of indulging in the little things, like enjoying a good book in front of a crackling fire or have a cosy night in with our loved ones without the constant urge of reaching for our phones! If you’re in need of inspiration for all the relaxing and fun evening moments that can be had in front of a warm, bright fire, this is the article for you – fireside living is about so much more than just warmth and comfort!

  1. Fun night outdoors by the firepit

Winter’s not here just yet, so why not try to make the most out of warmer temperatures with a fun family night in the garden or a nearby park?

You can’t go wrong with the outdoor fire classic of toasting marshmallows on a firepit, the perfect setting to share some stories, play music, or simply just share some laughs with your family and friends.

If you’re lucky with the weather and have already stocked up on the snacks, the last thing you need to worry about is what wood fuels to use. We’ve got you covered with our Kiln Dried Logs and our Natural Firelighters, the perfect combination for an unforgettable night filled with fun and safe, reliable flames!

  1. Cosy date night with your partner

When is the last time you set aside some time to be alone with your partner, without family responsibilities and stressful late-night work calls looming over your head?

The key to spending quality time with your significant other is to get rid of all distractions (that includes your phone and laptop too!) and simply focus on each other, put some music on, have some great food, and create the perfect romantic atmosphere with a bright and cosy fire – no such thing as too many candles too!

Our Heat Logs make for the perfect ignition to your fireplace date night, as they give a bright and beautiful flame to set the atmosphere just right and they are able to warm up the room in a flash. Your inner romantic will take care of the rest!

  1. Movie night with the family

Skip the Netflix in bed and opt for a proper movie night with your family instead!

No matter how chaotic your home life might seem at times, putting on a good movie and getting plenty of popcorn ready is the easiest way of getting everyone together by the fireplace and enjoy a special family night. Once again, our Heat Logs are the perfect product to keep the fire going – they will last just as long as the flick will!

Stuck on what movie to pick? Reaching for classics is very unlikely to fail you, and you can find some inspiration by browsing our favourites here.

  1. Book and a hot drink by the fireplace

Taking plenty of time for yourself every week is just as important as dedicating quality time to your loved ones, as it helps us recharge and truly rest, away from the hustle and bustle of our daily routine.

We believe that there’s no better way of reading a good book than having a crackling fire in the background while sipping a comforting hot drink. Bonus points if you happen to find a cosy blanket to wrap yourself with as you turn to the next page!

Our Kiln Dried Heat Logs work perfectly to keep you extra warm throughout your me-time ritual, burning with a subtly sweet scent and releasing minimal smoke for the ultimate relaxation session.

  1. Takeaway and game night with friends

Feeling like having an extra lazy night in with friends? You don’t need to slave away in the kitchen to have a successful dinner party – an indulgent takeaway, a couple of drinks, and a good collection of tabletop games and video games can work miracles!

It’s easy to get all your friends together and make new introductions go as smoothly as possible when there’s an inviting fire burning away in the living room. Both our Kiln Dried Logs and Hardwood Heat Logs will get the job done by burning for a long time and requiring minimal tending, so you can focus on being the world-class host you want to be!
