Make School Lunch Look Good

Backpacks and clothes aren’t the only way kids can express their style in school. Hip lunchboxes can bring creativity to the cafeteria and livelihood to the lunch line. There are so many great styles out there that it was hard to choose our favorites, but here are 10 we love.


It’s hard to not go “wild” for the fun prints on these made-in-Nashville lunchboxes. These lunchboxes are lightweight, easy to clean and come in patterns kids will love.

Bento box lunchboxes are all the rage and rightfully so. Say goodbye to packing a million little baggies because these boxes are perfect for portioning out food. These brightly colored boxes can even pop out of the case for easy cleaning.

Herschel Supply Co.

If their bags are cute and durable enough for mom and dad, they should be able to stand up to the smaller set. With unique prints and fun names like this multi-colored “pop quiz” lunchbox, these soft-sided lunchboxes should hold their own in the lunchroom.

Lego Lunchbox

Admittedly, this may not be the most practical lunchbox, but it’ll certainly make your kids happy and that’s half the battle! What kid wouldn’t go crazy over having a giant Lego in the cafeteria. Once school is out for the summer, this makes the perfect box for storing pens and pencils… or more Legos.

Skip Hop

We’ve always been a fan of the way Skip Hop takes adorable animals and makes them even cuter with the design of their bags. These lunchboxes are no different. We’ve never seen a Narwhal as cute as this one with a metallic tail, horn and cute little seashell clip. The bag is insulated and roomy, making it practical as well.

Thermos IsoTec

Thermos has been around for ages, so you can trust that it has great lunchbox technology—in this case, its IsoTec insulation that retains thermal energy and is both leakproof and PVC free. But your kids will only care about the fact that this container looks just like a little firetruck with rounded edges.

Emoji Neoprene

We have to LOL over this emoji lunchbox with Wifi signals underneath—and we have a feeling the kids will, too. The bag is no joke, though: It’s made of neoprene (non-toxic and eco-friendly), which is the same material as a wet suit, so you know it's well-insulated (and can stand up to spills!). It zips on top to keep everything inside and is lightweight, too.

BUY IT: Amazon, $14

Flip Sequin Lunchbox

Flip sequins aren’t just for shirts—they are now for…everything! This lunchbox will have your kid flipping from unicorn to rainbow sequins on their way to lunch. And although decorative, this lunchbox is spacious and easy to clean. It also comes with a shoulder strap for easy carrying.

BUY IT: Amazon, $22


If protecting the environment is your style, this lunchbox is the pick. Stainless steel and super durable, it contains compartments that are perfect for little mouths to try a variety of different foods. Each box comes with a magnet set to jazz up the box in every design from paisley and plaid to bikes or dinosaurs.

BUY IT: PlanetBox, $56

Sports Lunchbox

Are you ready for some football? This NFL-branded lunchbox isn’t just a chance to support your team, it’s also a well-made lunchbox. We like that this one comes with a removable tray for easy cleaning and a netted pocket that’s perfect for holding a snack or ice pack.

BUY IT: Target, $18
