We spent 22 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. It's time to stop shoving your bags of chips, apples, and sandwiches in recycled plastic bags when you want to enjoy a meal in the park. These picnic baskets let you dine wherever you'd like in a refined manner, and come with everything you need to keep food fresh and tidy in transit. Many are attractive enough to give as gifts or use as decorative storage. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

March 26, 2019:

A good picnic basket isn't just utilitarian; it also helps to create an ambiance. That's why we chose several models that have that classic look one wants from such an item. The Picnic Time Country not only has classic wicker construction, but also boasts cheery liners in either gingham, striped, or checkered prints. The Picnic Time Charleston Premium and the Inno Stage Willow Hamper are also classic wicker choices. These two come in a suitcase design with elegant buckles and lovely liners. We also wanted to choose baskets equipped with accessories that address the inherent inconveniences of dining outdoors. The VaultSac 4-Person Set comes with a table that fits directly inside the basket, so you have a stable dining surface without having to lug a bulky table with you. The Picnic At Ascot 400-AW can accommodate as much as 65 pounds, which comes in handy when you can't bring the whole fridge along, but need a lot of its contents. The Yodo Collapsible Family Size, Nature Gear 4-Person Hamper, and the Juvale Deluxe Double Lid all have insulated compartments to control the foods temperature.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs.

His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
