Log baskets are a must-have item for anyone lucky enough to have an open fire or log burning stove, providing a handy way to keep logs and kindling in a fireside spot within easy reach.

While a sturdy log shed in your garden (preferably close to your back door) is also vital when it comes to storing large quantities of wood for the fire, it is impractical to keep traipsing in and out every time you want to throw another log onto the fire — plus keeping a good stock indoors means they will be thoroughly dry and ready to burn.
