Retro picnic: John Lewis 150 Years Filled Hamper

We've just been looking at picnic options. Well, the weather has turned for the better and we don't expect it to last forever, so why not? Anyway, plenty of decent options out there, both new and vintage. But for a really top end picnic, this John Lewis 150 Years Filled Hamper is hard to beat.

Of course, it's far from the cheapest, but we'll get to that later. First up, let's talk about what you do get, which is a traditional willow hamper with cream leather handles, custom-made compartments and elasticated holders.

That's all designed to hold enough place settings for four people, with glasses, cutlery, china plates, additional cool bag and napkins all included in the set. But there's one other thing that makes it - an internal finish in the 1960s Pat Albeck-designed Daisychain cloth, adding a retro twist to a classic.

All you need to do is make (or buy) the food. If you want one of these, the price is £150.
