Totes Stylish

Beachy. Clean. Easy. This canvas basket tote from Food52 combines the ease of a farmers market bag with the sturdy-based reliability of a classic picnic basket. The canvas body cinches to keep contents enclosed, stylish leather straps provide a good grip and a woven willow base keeps things from tipping over. Available in white, olive and blue stripe, this picnic tote is as perfect for a day trip to the beach as it is for an overnight camping getaway to a rustic resort. $44.95,

Round it Out

Mark and Graham has a chic selection of a variety of picnic basket shapes, from traditional square to barrel-shaped, and even a seashell-inspired look. We like the natural round basket not only for its shapely appearance, but for its utility. The rattan wicker basket features a generous curved handle and a steady teak top that can double as a tabletop or tray. Add a monogram for a custom look that will stand out at the park or the beach. $119,
