Most people love a picnic, and personally I think they are one of the best ways to while away a hazy summer’s afternoon. This luxury picnic hamper made of willow, leather and linen is just the ticket. I especially love the mini salt and pepper shakers. Pack into it your mini Victoria sponges, scones and other homemade treats. It’s big enough for several flasks of your chosen afternoon tea blend too.
