Let's be honest, fire pits and patio heaters are going to be on everyone's summer shopping list this year – pubs aren't quite the same (or you can't get in), restaurants are limiting bookings... and garden gatherings are looking enduringly attractive, except when it gets chilly.
So, for those al fresco evenings when you want to make the most of your new garden furniture and fairy lights, you're going to need a boost in the warmth department. A fire pit is the key to a cosy atmosphere, a helping hand with mood lighting and a simple way to keep warm!
So, check out this fab fire pit from Aldi (opens in new tab) (above) which will be in store from 19th July for just £29.99. Aldi's fire pit model is industrial in style, on three metal legs and designed to develop a rustic, oxidised surface over time. We love the statement its style makes... nobody would ever guess the price!
No surprises here that Aldi's bargain fire pit will sell out FAST but it's not the cheapest we've found. Keep scrolling to check out the best fire pit deals from our other favourite retailers, below.
