Show us your #PerfectPicnic Instagram Photo and Win a Luxury Picnic Hamper

Hello everyone, we’ve recently joined Instagram and we’re excited to share our pics with the community of Instagrammers!

We are obsessed with delicious food and picnics and thought it would be really fun to see what you guys think makes the perfect picnic, and to share your ideas with us on Instagram.

#PerfectPicnic Competition

Is your idea of the perfect picnic a beautiful, wild place away from the crowds?
How about a picturesque park full of families, kids and dogs playing?
Or a stunning sunset with a blanket and bottle of fizz and one special person?
What’s wrong with pork pie at the bus stop?
Or are you just grateful for the absence of wasps?

Whatever you think, simply Instagram your perfect picnic: include your ideal picnic buddies, picnic foods, picnic outfit, picnic games or picnic spot and share it with us (picnic selfies are of course welcome).

As prizes for our #PerfectPicnic Instagram competition, we’ll be giving away one luxury picnic hamper for two in August, one in September, and one in October – and we’ll be sharing our favourite photos as we go along on Facebook and Twitter too.

  1. Join Instagram if you haven’t already (you’ll need a smartphone to download the app)
  2. Follow @HampergiftsUK
  3. Snap a few pics of your perfect picnic
  4. Share your images on Instagram, making sure you add #PerfectPicnic and @HampergiftsUK to the photos, so we can find you!
