Our personalised picnic crate arrived just in time for our family holiday to Devon, which was such a perfect time to try it out. It came in two packages, the lid (is an optional extra) and the crate separately all packaged up carefully so that it didn’t get damaged in transition.
It comes in a range of colours and you can choose your own personalisation using two lines of 24 characters, this was perfect even for our long surname. We chose Coastal mist which is a lovely light blue colour. We had The Clifton-Hadley’s tasty snacks’ printed on to the side and it looks fantastic. I have to be honest I did feel quite smug carrying it around, as when using the picnic crate on our holiday in Devon we were stopped by so many people asking where we got it from. It was nice to get lots of fabulous comments, as it is so different from the usual picnic basket that we carry around.
When I first saw the crate I was really pleased as it looks great and is so much more spacious than I thought it was ever going to be. We managed to fit so much food inside. We even managed to fit our beverages inside, which I was not expecting.
The crate is so easy to carry with its built in carrying handles. Walking down the beach just seemed so much easier carrying the one crate rather than taking lots of bags. It’s just so simple! Well done NOT ON THE HIGH STREET!
The best thing about the picnic crate is that it also doubles up as a seat, perfect for when the grass is a bit damp or you can’t quite get down to sit on the floor. I even used it with the lid on for a little table to put drinks on so that they didn’t get knocked over on the floor. I was really impressed with the variety of functions that the crate had and cannot wait to use it again.
If you are sick of taking numerous carrier bags on a picnic for them to break and to be left carrying your food and want to be the envy of your friends on a picnic, then this is definitely the product for you.
The lid is sold as an optional extra and you can also add wheels and a hessian liner should you require.
I would 100% give this product 5 stars.
RRP: £39 (Lid +£8, Wheels +£10, Hessian Liner +£10)
