Picnic Baskets Make Carrying Your Meal More Manageable

| April 16, 2011

When it’s a warm, sunny day outside, the last thing place you want to be is cooped up inside your home. You could go for a run in the park, or you could go for a drive with the windows down. Have you ever considered taking a picnic? Picnics can be a great way to enjoy a nice day, catch up with someone you haven’t seen in a long time, or spend time with a close friend or loved one. You can’t just carry your sandwiches up the hiking trail though. You’re going to need a picnic basket!

There are several kinds of picnic baskets on the market. Some are simple, while others are more elaborate. Choosing one for you is all a matter of which one is easiest to carry, and which one you like the best.

First, there is the classic wooden picnic basket, made of either rattan or bamboo. You’ve probably seen these types of picnic baskets in movies, complete with a red and white checkered blanket inside. No matter what material your classic picnic basket is made of, it is guaranteed to be strong, while still maintaining a light weight, which will make it much easier to carry. Some of these particular baskets come with dishes and utensils already inside, which means that you don’t have to bring your own from home. Many of these models also include pockets for easy storage of utensils and other items.

Moreover, there more modern picnic baskets out there as well. These are made of a polyester material and they’re just as light and durable as classic wooden baskets. You can even find variations of the modern picnic basket that will keep your food cold. While classic picnic baskets can be hard to carry for long distances because of their wooden handles, modern baskets feature soft, adjustable straps. There are even larger versions of these baskets, which have wheels.

If you’re looking for something that is even easier to carry on longer treks to a special and secluded picnic spot, there are picnic totes, as well. These are often insulated so that your meal stays cold, and they usually have several different pockets inside so that you can keep your picnic supplies organized.

No matter which type of picnic basket you choose, a basket or tote, you will be able to carry your delicious meal wherever your picnic takes you.
