There are a variety of picnic sets available to buy. If you’re trying to decide which one is best for you, here are some questions to ask yourself.

If you’ve ever gone on a picnic, chances are you’ve labored over the question of what type of picnic set you should use. There are a variety of picnic sets available on the market, including lunch totes, picnic basket sets, picnic backpack sets and other specialty sets. While all these sets are extremely useful, they might not always be what you need. If you’re trying to choose which set is best for you, here are some questions that will help you decide.

Are you looking for something more traditional?

Most people have an iconic picture of a picnic in their mind that features a red and white checkered picnic blanket, bright green grass and an old-fashioned wicker picnic basket. If this is the picture in your mind, then you should stick with a traditional picnic basket set. We have a wide selection of picnic basket sets that come in the style of wicker baskets and include plates, silverware and napkins. Some of them also come with modern insulation to keep your food cool and even have spots for picnic blankets. Another great thing about these picnic basket sets is that they come in different sizes, so you can get one that fits accessories for two or picnic-basket for four people.

Will you be hiking long distances to go on your picnic?

If you’re an outdoors person who will go on long hikes or adventures before finally sitting down to relax at a picnic then a backpack set is best for you. The major advantage of the picnic backpack set is that it allows for a compact and hands-free way to transport your food to any destination. The backpacks have dozens of compartments to safely and snugly fit all the picnic accessories you need like plates, silverware and blankets. Just like the picnic basket set, the backpacks also come in two sizes that serve either two people or four.

Are you looking for something that works for more than a picnic?

Lunch totes are much more low-key than picnic baskets and backpacks, because they look like regular tote bags and can be used for a range of things. Lunch totes offer you a versatility the others cannot provide. They come in many different styles and are even customizable with logos from favorite sports teams or colleges.

Do you take special foods or beverages on your picnic?

Many people prefer to take a bunch of food and beverages that cannot easily be placed in any picnic set, like coffee, wine or barbecue items. If you’re one of these people, consider getting a specialized picnic set. For example, we sell wine totes and carriers for the connoisseur who likes to picnic. We also have coffee backpack and totes that keep your coffee hot and protected while traveling to picnics. Other sets you can purchase are grill sets.
