Throwback Thursday | Glamping: A New Spin on an American Pastime

August 06, 2015

Somehow, when August rolls around, we’re reminded that summer won’t last forever. But it can’t be over yet!. We’re not ready, so we started thinking about one more summer vacation. In this Throwback Thursday, consider an end-of-summer “glamping” trip.

Camping is one of the *coolest* summer activities in existence. It’s been around since forever ago, but we’ve started noticing that camping has been repackaged! The biggest ongoing trend of the past few years: glamping!

“Glamping” is an awesome mashup of two concepts: glamour and camping. It packages together the beauty of the outdoors with the comforts of home, including splashy tents or other lodging, electricity, and other fancy, fabulous fare!

Check out a few glamping-worthy items below:

Amazing, right? We sure appreciate a trend that infuses creativity and flair into a traditional concept. Just like Ernest Packaging Solutions’ engineers did when they created this packaging for BMX legend Eddie Fiola. His BMX packaging had to be fun, edgy and environmentally­ conscious, just like the Fiola brand.
