Is it time for a picnic? I think so, especially if you had this basket from Danish brand Menu. It’s a sort of hybrid between a basket and tray, with two air-tight containers with bamboo lids, two cooling pads, and a felt liner. Stick the cooling pads in the freezer before you head out to keep your food cool. It’s like a bento-box-basket, isn’t it? You could, of course, also use it off-duty around the house (as shown in last image) to corral all manner of odds and ends; there’s no need to keep it just for outdoor activities.
