Top 10 ways to re-use your wicker hamper

16 Mar 2017

A wonderful selection of our hampers are beautifully presented in high quality traditional wicker hampers. These well-designed baskets are hand woven, lidded, with two little leather buckles and a handle, making them very robust and totally charming. They are too gorgeous and too versatile to be hidden away after all the delicious contents have been devoured, so we wanted to give you some inspiration to help you re-use the wooden baskets.
  1. Picnic Basket
This hamper could not be more ideal for a picnic basket. Plenty of space for lots of delicious nibbles and refreshments and it would make the perfect traditional centrepiece to a picnic blanket.
  1. Book/DVD storage
Have an unruly pile of books by the side of your bed, or DVDs spilling out of the shelf by the TV? Then store all the runaways in a tidy, rustic manner and hide them away by closing the lid!
  1. Pet bed
Fill the hamper with your pets favourite bedding and toys and tuck it into a corner for a beautiful, neat little pet bed.
  1. Toy Box
Turned into a toy box, this basket would look simply delightful, tucked away in the corner or a child’s room, overflowing with toys. When you want the room to look clean again, just close the lid, and slide it under the bed!
  1. Plant holder
Is your front lawn in need of a spritz of individuality and character? Why not transform the wicker hamper into an outdoor plant holder? Overflowing with colourful flowers and greenery, this could give your garden the bit of style it’s lacking.
  1. Gift
Everybody loves a hamper – and we should know! Give someone else the joy of opening it, send it to your mother for her birthday, filled with all her favourite beauty products or put it under the Christmas tree filled with brightly wrapped Christmas presents for the whole family.
  1. Bike Basket
Be retro with our smaller wicker hampers and attach one to your bike for a bit of country glamour – and actually they’re pretty useful to have too!
  1. Bathroom Organiser
Sick of the bathroom products scattered around the bath and littered around the sink? Why not collect everything up and use the hamper to store it all in – it will keep everything organised and will not look out of place on the floor. If you have more than one hamper, you could stack them up to make a rather unique organiser!
  1. Wedding display
After a vintage wedding? These hampers would look beautiful under a stream of bunting, filled with wedding favours or wedding cards.
  1. Log Basket
Make your fireplace even more alluring and keep the theme with a wicker basket filled with logs and firewood. To see our selection of luxury wicker hampers, please see here. Now get creative!
