Everyone loves a good picnic – sunshine, a nice patch of grass under a tree, lots of delicious treats and good company. What you don’t want is to be struggling to carry everything, dropping things and having to stop every two steps to re-balance a pile of picnic blankets, food and plates. This is where the good old-fashioned picnic basket comes in! As well as adding a delightful English countryside feel to the occasion, a picnic basket is also a genuinely useful item. It’s easy to carry, and big enough to fit a picnic rug, food and drinks, cups and plates, and anything else you might want to bring with you.

Buy picnic basket online: features to consider
When browsing the picnic basket range online, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, size – how many people are you likely to be picnicking with? Do you need a family sized picnic basket or is it more of a treat for two? There are plenty of modern picnic baskets to be found with features such as insulated cooling and bottle holders. Some of these have a modern look and feel; others maintain the traditional wicker basket aesthetic. Pouches, straps or pockets for cups, plates and cutlery are another handy feature to look out for – the last thing you want is to arrive at your picnic destination and find that something has been broken along the way. Other baskets are lightweight and foldable for convenient storage, and some even have wheels to make mobility a little easier to manage.
