Comparing The Top 5 Most Popular Picnic Baskets
A picnic basket makes picnicking convenient to help you enjoy a bright and lovely day outside. Most certainly if you opt for a picnic set where you have all the things you will need. Everything is packed neatly inside the basket or bag in its own designated spot.
There are several good and popular picnic baskets or picnic backpacks that you could check out. However before we get started you should consider one thing. That is to say whether you want a picnic basket that is good for 2 or 4 people.
You are fine with a basket of 2 if you know you will only go out with one other person. On the other hand you might not want to restrict yourself with space.
If you have a picnic basket of 4 it will give you some flexibility. You can invite friends or family along with you for your picnic. Or you could keep it just in case your family grows and you will need the extra room. Plus it is not like picnic baskets for 2 are much smaller than baskets or backpacks for 4.
Additionally in our top list of picnic baskets I also included some picnic backpacks. So we have 8 picnic sets to show you. This is just so that you have options of different designs and they come with some notes. Like this we can explain the pros and cons of each design for you to consider.

SatisInside 16 Pcs Deluxe Picnic Set
The SataisInside picnic set is a beautifully hand woven picnic basket that comes with a red or coffee coloured traditional chequered pattern. It comes with genuine leather straps, brass clamps and a reinforced handle. The compartment on the inside has an insulated liner. It is thick and perfect to maintain your foods temperature.

If this picnic basket is not tightly packed then items will move around. Especially because you have to flip it on its side when you go to carry it. If you do not want this to happen then you should place items towards the back of the cover, like this they should not move much.
A picnic blanket is not included in this basket, but you can buy a matching chequered picnic blanket from Amazon which is waterproof. It is 150 x 200 cms. Or else another waterproof, tote picnic blanket from Amazon that is 220 x 170 cms.
HappyPicnic Willow Picnic Set
This willow picnic basket has a solid bamboo lid that doubles as a table. You can detach the table/lid from the picnic basket and place it anywhere you like. It has a couple of spots cut out to accommodate the wine glasses so you avoid any spillage. This picnic hamper has an adjustable shoulder strap and soft real leather pad. The tableware comes in a pouch which you can carry inside.
There are 2 things I like about this picnic hamper. Firstly you do not have to turn it on its side like a suitcase basket. So the contents will not move around. Secondly the table is handy. Especially for grass. Wine glasses will not stay propped up on grass and will likely spill.
This picnic basket is 38.1 x 27.9 x 25.9 cms in size. It contains: 1 bottle opener, 2 plates, 2 glasses (real glass), 2 knives, 2 forks, 2 spoons, 2 napkins. 1 x removable bamboo wine table, 1 x tableware pouch. The nice thing about this picnic basket is that it has a 150x130cm picnic blanket with waterproof backing.
Picnic Basket for 2 Persons
Pynhoklm Insulated Cooler Picnic Basket
The Pynhoklm insulated cooler is made out of high quality Polyester fabric and has an aluminium alloy frame. It is 40 x 22 x 25 cms in size and study and strong, in fact it can hold up to 25kg of food and drinks. Additionally the inner lining is thermo-insulated.
This basket is not your traditional wicker picnic basket, but I listed it because it is a good basket option that has a competitive price. Unlike other options this is a stand-alone basket and does not come with other set items.
Picnic Backpack for 2 Persons
Apollo Walker Picnic Backpack
The Apollo Walker picnic backpack has multiple storage compartments and comes with premium insulation lining. As a result it will keep the temperature of your food for a long time. It comes with comfortable padded straps so it will not wear you down while you are walking.
The backpack is 42 x 35 x 18 cms and comes with: 1 bottle opener, 2 plates, 2 glasses, 2 knives, 2 forks, 2 spoons, 1×cheese or butter knife. 2 napkins, 2 × salt and pepper shakers. 1 × plastic chopping board. It also comes with a 114x135cm soft fleece blanket that has a waterproof backing.
This backpack is great because everything stays upright and exactly as you place it inside the bag. Additionally you can just put it on your back so you can keep your hands free. This is one of the few picnic sets that has decent sized dinner plates. They are 23cms in diameter.

Another Happy Picnic Wicker Picnic Basket, this is another high quality basket made from natural willow. It is 45.2cm x 30.5cm x 19.1cm and comes with: 4 17cm diameter plates, 4 glasses, 4 knives, 4 forks, 4 spoons, 4 napkins and a picnic blanket 145x120cm in size.

The basket has rivets to fasten items securely and heavy duty faux leather handles. Additionally it has a large insulated cooler compartment that lines all the space on the inside of the basket. It is laminated with aluminium foil to help maintain the temperature of food items for a longer.
Since it is a suitcase style basket you have to rotate it after loading the contents to carry it. So your things will move around inside the basket when you go to do this. It does not have salt and pepper shakers or a corkscrew. However this picnic basket is as lovely as it is durable. It has better quality melamine plates instead of plastic ones like most other picnic baskets.
