The basket is not too heavy or bulky, but is has plenty of room for an actual picnic. Some of the smaller baskets (listed as being "for 2") are kind of a joke - you can't fit enough food or plates to have more than a couple crackers and a grape. This one has plenty of room for an actual picnic lunch or dinner - it fits the cooler, a bottle of wine, obviously the plates and glasses, a couple tupperware containers, a box of crackers, some fruit, cheese, etc. Also, it's nice that the top flaps open from the sides - some of the flap-top baskets that open from the center make it difficult to reach into the inside of the basket. This one opens wide for easy access and cleaning.
In restrospect, I might have bought the one that had straps on the side to attach a picnic blanket, but I think it's easy enough to add one yourself, considering the additional cost. But it's something to think about.
My husband and I both thought this was one of the best items we received as a wedding present. I will definitely be buying more as wedding presents for my friends and family - it's such a romantic gift, something that will last for a long time, something to use on special, happy occasions, and something a young couple would probably never be able to buy for themselves.
We will definitely be taking this basket next time we go up to Napa, or out to the Hollywood Bowl, so everyone else can be jealous of our picnic basket. :) Enjoy and happy picnicking!
ONE caveat - it is heavy, in large part because it is big and very well made, but when loaded up with wine and food, it will need somebody strong to carry it. Seriously.
If you want a service for 4 with all the trimmings this the best buy.
But it takes 3-5 days to ship, too long time.
