When it comes to outdoor living, Aldi always has us covered.

And whenever an unexpected heatwave hits – or even when we just get an extended spell of decent weather with temperatures above 22 degrees – it's such a shock there's a last-minute scramble to make the most of it.

Cue people all over the UK finding dusting off their old garden furniture to find that it's no longer fit for purpose.

If want to spend some time lounging outside with a crisp glass of ice-cold Sauvignon after work, Aldi has the perfect product to help you do just that.

This Gardenline Reclining Sun Lounger, £49.99 has just dropped online. Like many of Aldi's bargain buys, it's not going to be around long, so if you need to upgrade your outdoor furniture, don't delay.

Why we rate it

Even just looking at this reclining sun lounger makes us feel relaxed.

Constructed with a secure steel frame, it's durable, waterproof – even UV-resistant – so it won't fade or show the signs of wear and tear too quickly. (But it has a three-year warranty if anything does go wrong).

There's a handy pillow/headrest which also had a mesh pocket so you can store your phone and book/magazine if you want to have a gentle snooze in the balmy weather.

And, of course, it folds away easily so it's no hassle to store, either. It also comes in a soft, grey colour too. So you and your other half can claim one each.

Although it's £20 more expensive than the lounger above, this Gardenline Rocking Sun Lounger, £69.99 caught our eye because, well, it rocks. Literally. And we can imagine gently rocking ourselves to sleep, as a balmy breeze wafts gently over our skin.

It's weather and UV-resistant, with a durable fabric cover over a steel tube frame. The head cushion is removable, and it has padded armrests to offer that bit of extra comfort.

It also comes with a three-year warranty.

And finally, coming in at £79.99 is this luxe Aldi Gardenline Aluminium Sun Lounger. With five adjustable back rest settings you've got plenty of choice for the most comfortable position. The robust and durable aluminium frame has been powder-coated for extra protection, too.

Although it's a slightly higher price point, this customer commented that it's a great purchase. "Easy to construct. All bolts lined up. Very light and easy to move around. Comfortable to sit on. Back rest has lots of different settings. Definitely recommend buying one."
