Beautiful wicker basket giveaway

Beautiful wicker basket giveaway

The time has come to come out of the closet and admit that I love a good basket! I am told this is not the sign of premature middle age, but a completely rational desire to own something beautiful and useful. When The Basket Company first asked me if I’d like to review (and giveaway) one of their shopping baskets I did a short survey on my Facebook page about which one I should choose and this Antique Wash Oval basket came out as a favourite and it is lovely…


I’ve only had it a week, but I am surprised by what an important role it plays. Baskets are not like bags. If you put things in them the contents stay upright and don’t crush other things you are carrying. I took it to our local farmers market at the weekend and filled it with bread, sausages, butter, doughnuts and wine and they all came home unharmed and undented.

Of course baskets are good for the environment too and unlike reusable bags they are hard to lose! Of course if you’d rather use one around the house then they could serve a hundred purposes. Jim tried to steal this one to keep kindling in and Theo assumed it had been sent to store his cars in, although to be honest he thinks most things are intended to store his cars in!


thebasketcompany.com do a great range of very reasonably priced baskets for picnics, storage, logs, bicycles and beyond. It’s well worth a browse. In the meantime if you want to win my baskets twin, just enter via Rafflecopter below…

I don’t want to win but just wanted to tell you that you’re not alone in your love of baskets. I have one too and I adore it. I use mine to collect holly in the winter to make Christmas decorations x

I love baskets! And boxes too. Anything container-y. Which makes me sound tidy and organised, but, unfortunately, it’s more aspirational, I’m afraid!

Its gorgeous, I have a bit of a basket obsession, they look fab filled with flowers.

Janine April 11, 2015 - 7:02 am

I love this basket, just what I could do with now the weather’s looking good and I’m doing a massive Spring clean.
Lucky girl, congratulations on your recent Debenhams Easter win.
