An Introduction To Picnic Baskets

Picnic baskets are the best way to eat outdoors, and the great outdoors is the best place to eat. So why not get a picnic basket as a gift for someone you love or care for? Or how about one just for yourself?

Picnic baskets are great for taking to a baseball game, a public park, private garden, or just your living room on a rainy day! They come in all shapes and sizes, all styles and tastes. You can buy them packed with dinner plates, bowls, silverware, mugs, corkscrews, picnic blankets, cutting boards, glassware, and much, much more.

Or, if you need a way to pack the food itself, you can buy a picnic basket that is already full of food. They come very simple, containing just the basic like cheese and crackers and a bottle of wine, or very luxurious and decadent. Gourmet picnic baskets can include, smoked salmon, caviar, a wide variety of cheeses and crackers, breads, jams and jellies, fruits and vegetables, various dips, or a couple bottles of wine.

Picnic baskets are usually made from a wooden weave, such as willow or maple strips. They can also be made of rattan and solid wood with hinges and flaps. Others are made of nylon for full durability and longevity.

Picnic baskets range in price from about $10 for a simple, vintage-style, empty basket for full customizability, to $200 or more for a picnic hamper. A picnic hamper is a huge basket with handles to be carried by at least two people. The hamper can be packed with dinnerware, napkins, and other objects, along with a gigantic assortment of food that is sure to please your entire palate.

No matter what you’re looking for in a picnic basket, the possibilities are endless. So why not? Get outside and dig in!
