Gourmet Picnic Hampers

Our gourmet filled picnic hampers contain food created by Britain's finest artisan producers and wine from world renowned estates.

Our ready made picnic hampers make the perfect accompaniment for British spring and summer time events such as a day at the races, watching the open air opera at Glyndebourne or visiting your local county fair.

The majority of our picnic hampers contain a variety of ambient and chilled produce and any chilled items will be packed at the top of your hamper within a sealed cool bag so that if you've arranged delivery prior to the day of your picnic you can refrigerate the items until your big outing arrives.

With our fast UK tracked delivery you can select next day or named day delivery in the checkout and if you are ordering your picnic basket for delivery as a gift you can also include a gift card which you can write during checkout.

Can you recommend picnic food ideas for couples?

Planning and preparing a picnic date may seem daunting but our top tips are guaranteed to make the ultimate romantic day out;

·         First choose a traditional lidded wicker hamper – this will hide the lovely gourmet produce you've chosen and will add its own element of traditional romance!

·         Mix Pimm's with fruit and lemonade and store it with ice in a vacuum flask or water tight jars.

·         Pack a soft blanket to sit on

·         Don't forget the cutlery and crockery or napkins

·         Take some nibbles such as crisps, cheese biscuits or olives

·         Make some small finger sandwiches

·         Take cheese and add chutney and your favourite crackers.

·         Don't forget the fruit – if you've got time dip strawberries in melted chocolate at home and chill them before your romantic picnic

·         A box of the best chocolates you can afford – Prestat or Willies Cacao are our firm favourites!

How do you package your picnic hampers?

Our picnic hampers are packed in either our own sturdy cardboard lidded gift boxes, which are covered in a British icon print and are hand tied in ribbon or they are presented in a traditional wicker picnic basket.

Whilst the handmade wicker baskets are a more expensive option, they are perfect for reusing for future picnics. When you click to view the hampers the packaging type is shown in the item list at the top of the item menu. If you were unsure please chat with us on live chat or over the phone on 01522 581 581.

If the hamper you are interested in is presented in one of our bespoke lidded boxes and you would like us to change the packaging to a wicker basket please get in touch with us on Live Chat or via phone on 01522 581 581 and we'll happily confirm whether the change is possible and will provide you with a quote for the extra cost of wicker.
