11 Dreamy Parasols We Love

It may not be the beach, but you can still create a holiday vibe in your garden, thanks to these easy breezy parasols.

With beach holidays unlikely to be on the agenda this year, now is the time to get your head around summer at home and spruce up your garden or patio. The clement weather is raising all of our spirits, giving us the impetus to give our outdoor spaces a much-needed holiday spruce-up. To that end, we have selected some of the best parasols money can buy. So, pour yourself a glass of something cold, have a browse, and dream of holidays. In your back garden.
