IN THE BAG: A cool bag is your first stop for putting your picnic on ice.

Freeze bottles of water or cartons of juice before packing them to keep food cold or buy some cheap ice blocks.

GET A HANDLE ON IT: If you’re carrying lots of heavy cans or boxes of food, a pull-along cooler is an essential helper.

The Coleman Wheeled 26-litre cooler was £59.99 and is now £44.99 at Mountain Warehouse, easing the load on both you and your wallet.

COOL CUP: In this heat, even a glass of wine can get warm quickly.

Keep yours chilled with Sho Pacto insulated tumbler, down from £22.99 to £12.99.

The cup, in a range of colours at shoreusable.com, can also be used to keep coffee hot in colder months.

PARTY BAG: Keep wine and bubbly ­party-ready thanks to the Mixology Vinology wine bottle cooler bag, £6.50 from John Lewis.

Perfect for party gifts, just store the bag in the freezer until you head out of the door. The frozen gel in the sides of the bag keeps the wine cold.
