Picnic basket in calfskin and wicker, $16,800, Hermès, hermes.com
Few things are more darling and fulfilling than a picnic. Even Meghan Markle, who insists she’s never been a lady who lunches, fancies the simple pleasures of a pop-up meal alfresco, once sharing in an interview with Esquire: “If you go for a stroll, have a picnic with a glass of wine—it doesn’t get better than that.” After all, getting in touch with nature—even if only for lunch—is a reminder that the best things in life are free. Replicate Claude Monet’s 1865 painting “Luncheon on the Grass,” and scout the perfect spot to spread a blanket beneath the trees. Since the setting is compliments of Mother Nature, don’t skimp on the provisions, and invest in Hermès’ new wicker and calfskin picnic basket to carry the goods.
