The Best Picnic Basket Sets For You
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Until recently I had always envisioned picnic baskets as being just a dull wicker basket with a big handle. Upon further investigation, I could not believe how wrong I was. Today, picnic baskets come in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles. Not only that, picnic basket sets have many picnic items come with the basket. With all of the choices available today, it is necessary to ask yourself which is right for me?

Picnic basket sets can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to finding the right one. The first thing we need to look at is the size of the basket we need. Most sets are broken down into sizes according to how many people they can serve. Picnic basket sets for 2 are most commonly used to go on a date or celebrate your wedding anniversary with your spouse. These picnic baskets are great for any occasion with the one you love. Picnic basket sets for 4 are used in more various occasions compared to the sets for 2. These sets can be used for going out on a double date with some close friends or maybe spending a day at the lake with your spouse and kids. There are even sets for 6 available if you like to go by ?the more the merrier? saying like I do. Determining the size should be the first step when finding the best set for you.

Your personality and likes or even your family's personality and likes as a whole can play a big role on picking the right basket. This is because colors are often assigned a personality or meaning. An example is if your family loves to hunt and fish or maybe hike and camp, you may want to purchase a green or brown set. Nature is full of green and brown, which is why these colors are known as the outdoor colors.

Blue is a great color choice when you want to feel calm and relaxed. It's especially calming lying on the beach with the light blue sky and the dark blue ocean in the background. If your family sees the good and evil in everyone, you may want the neutral color gray to be somewhere on your picnic basket. Gray also is portrayed as a stable relief from a chaotic world. Which is why a lot of people have a picnic in the first place. These days, many of us are overworked and as a result we are either running on empty or need to blow off some steam. If you and your family need rejuvenated, a warmer color may be the best option for you.

Orange is an optimistic, uplifting and reviving color. It combines the cheerfulness of yellow and the stimulating energy of red. Speaking of red, red is the color of love and passion. If you are looking for the perfect set for you and your special someone this may be the perfect color of choice as it will add a little extra passion to the evening.

Now that you know the size and have a possible color picked, we need to figure out what style of basket is the best fit. There are several styles available. We have the backpack, insulated/collapsible, wooden, and wicker picnic basket sets, to name a few. The backpack sets are just as you would imagine them to be. These sets are basically a backpack with various items included inside. If you plan on walking a great distance before having your picnic, these sets are probably the best option available for you.

The insulated baskets are quite often not very rigid and can be collapsed down to store in small spaces. These baskets are designed to keep your food and drinks at a desired temperature. These baskets are for people who would like to have an all day picnic or at least stay for an extended period of time. The wooden picnic basket sets are most often rectangular in shape, usually having a fabric covering over the whole basket inside and out. They are very durable and are often carried ?suitcase style? with a handle located on the front.

The last basket style we will be discussing is the one I thought all picnic baskets looked like. Wicker picnic basket sets themselves, come in several different shapes. They are not always the big basket with the big loop handle. Some are more in the shape of a taco and have two opening doors on top, while others are rectangular and are carried like a suitcase just like a lot of the wooden ones are. These baskets, like the wooden ones, are very strong and can be used for a lot of the same occasions. The main difference between the wooden and wicker baskets is if you want the authentic retro wicker look or the modern colored fabric wooden look.

Now that we have gone over some basket sizes, colors, and styles you should be more familiar with today?s picnic basket sets. Hopefully this article has helped you narrow down your search for the right one.
