Best Modern Picnic Hampers & Coolers

Modern baskets and coolers

I love my modern picnic hamperscoolers – for when a traditional picnic basket or cool boxes won’t quite do!  Maybe you prefer their look, or they’re easy to store and clean.  But whatever it is about them you love, here are my best modern picnic hampers and coolers reviewed!

Modern picnic baskets and cool boxes are all about functionality and have features to keep your food fresh, handy compartments for storage, and much more.
