Searching for ways to enjoy the sun during lockdown? We may have just the answer.

While going outside is still limited to once a day for exercise, that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy a picnic in your own garden or outdoor space.

Whether you’re looking for a fun family activity to occupy your children for a few hours, or are wanting some quality time with your partner, a picnic could offer you the escape you need.

We’ve rounded up the best (and most stylish) wicker baskets we could find on the high street for couples and families - many of which come with some great, and very handy, additions.

From a built in cooler box that keeps all your food chilled, to a chopping board, bottle opener and waterproof blanket, these wicker baskets are packed with everything you need for alfresco dining.
