11 Cool New Types of Picnic Baskets

11 Cool New Types of Picnic Baskets

A curated list of 11 cool new types of picnic baskets.  Picnicking is something we do almost every weekend.  Living in South Florida allows us to enjoy the outdoors all year long.  We visit beaches and parks.  We hold our celebrations and events in the outdoors.   Since I spend so much time picnicking I’ve come to learn about the different types of baskets.  In addition to the classic wicker baskets there are now baskets made from a variety of fabrics, plastics, and wood and come in all shapes and sizes.

1. Here is a modern looking collapsible basket. Instead of wicker, the basket is made out of durable polyester and comes in an array of colors and fashions. What makes these so convenient is that they can double as a reusable grocery bag, because they your food at the right temperature.
