A picnic basket is a special kind of basket used for holding food and other items needed for a picnic.
It’s like the suitcase we use when traveling, only that this is specifically for our outdoor fun day!
The idea of the picnic basket dates back to colonial times when there were no stores or restaurants to pick up food from while on a journey.
People had to pack their own food in baskets to carry along.
Over time, this simple method evolved into picnicking for leisure, as we know it today!
A typical picnic basket is made from woven wood, like rattan or willow, and often comes with a lid and handles.
Most picnic baskets are designed bigger than regular baskets to accommodate your picnic meal and anything else you might need in the picnic like napkins, tablecloth, or even a frisbee.
Some fancy picnic baskets come with compartments, plates, glasses, and cutlery straps, saving you the hassle of carrying extra bags.
In a nutshell, the picnic basket is your one-stop outdoor dining kit that not only keeps your goodies fresh but also boosts your style at the park.
