You sit at your dining room table all winter long. Now that summer is in full swing, why not enjoy a meal with a view instead? Pack for a romantic, moonlit picnic for your loved one, an afternoon with girlfriends in the park, or a family getaway to the beach. Just don’t do it with some sad paper bag or tiny carrier. Not everyone bothers to invest in a picnic-specific basket, but once you travel with one of these, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to get it!
