Whether you need a ready-to-go picnic hamper, or fancy packing a picnic of your own, we’ve got perfect picnic picks for a fun outdoor feast...
What’s not to love about getting into the great outdoors with the kids, the family dog and a perfectly packed picnic basket? We’ve already let you in on the best picnic spots in Singapore, but now we’re talking picnic-friendly food, beautiful baskets and handy hampers. Before you head out to every supermarket on the Little Red Dot to track down olives, manchego cheese and colourful melamine cups and plates, we’ve come to your alfresco dining rescue with everything you need for a fun family picnic in Singapore…
WHERE TO BUY PICNIC HAMPER SUPPLIES IN SINGAPORE
Whether you live in an HDB, a landed house or a condo (or something else entirely!), chances are that storage space is limited at home, and not many of us have room for keeping picnic hampers and the paraphernalia that goes with them. Step forward, Picneeds! These guys will rock up to your picnic destination with a hamper packed exactly to your requirements and set the whole thing up for you too. You can even hire teepees and lightboxes to make a real show of it. It’ll be worth it!

2. Oh Deli
We are huge fans of all things Oh Deli (it can certainly lay claim to the nicest delivery guy in Singapore and one of the frothiest babyccinos!). So, if you are looking for top-quality food for your picnic hamper then look no further. Oh Deli is a one-stop shop for every feast you can think of for your foodie day out. We’re talking homemade breads, splendid stinky cheese, fresh smoked salmon and even artisanal Scottish spirits! So, either pop by their East Coast store or take advantage of their home delivery service.
Can’t decide what to pop in that picnic? Leave it to them! These guys can arrange the whole hamper (basket included) from $100 and up, which includes sausage rolls, shepherd’s pie, hams, cheeses, sandwiches and even a cheeky bottle of wine or champagne – your choice. Just give them a day or two’s notice.

7. The Children’s Showcase
If you’re going the DIY route, you’ll need some fancy picnicware. And while paper plates always seem like a good, easy idea, in reality, they usually turn into a soggy mess, whereas plastic cups and cutlery are wasteful and totes against our goal to be as environmentally friendly as possible! We say: invest in some perennially pretty plates that you can use for picnics and BBQs forevermore. Head over to The Children’s Showcase for rainbow-coloured plates and cups made in durable melamine by Rice and gorgeous themed party accessories by Talking Tables. Picnic settings just got perfect!
Where: The Children’s Showcase, Cluny Court, 501 Bukit Timah Road #02-35, Singapore 259760, and at Tanglin Mall, 163 Tanglin Rd #03-16A, Singapore 247933, p. 6735 0884
