Channel Jane Birkin and swap your handbag for a basket this July. Straw London specialise in beautiful vintage baskets, as well as exquisite homewares, jewellery and gifts. Sign up to the newsletter to be the first to hear when the July basket drop lands. Subscribers get 2 hours’ to browse before the baskets go live on the site, and they sell out fast so it’s worth having the head start. Baskets from £85 at Straw London

One of the great things to come out of lockdown has been the move to shopping locally. Ditch the car and use this wonderful vintage-inspired wicker shopping trolley instead. New trundling trolley, £95 at Pentreath & Hall
