The midday meal should be a chance to relax and take your mind off of work for a little while. But when you order delivery or grab takeout, botched orders and long wait times can actually make your break more stressful. Bring exactly what you want, however you want it, with one of these stylish and functional lunch containers.
Built To Last
A container that screams , ‘open me.’ Amazon
If your idea of a hearty lunch includes a thermos of coffee or tea, this old-school metal container with a domed lid is your answer. Add a Stanley vacuum bottle to complete the look, or use with your own (be sure to check the dimensions). It’s best for dry storage, so use insulated food containers if you want to bring hot soups or cold dishes.
Adult Version Of A Schoolyard Staple
A modern take on an old-fashioned classic. Amazon
Keep the spirit of the construction site lunch pail but with modern upgrades like water repellent canvas, an insulated main compartment and a shoulder strap for hands-free transport. With a separate insulated top compartment and a zippered pocket for utensils, it’s got space for you to pack everything you need. When the workweek is over, bring it to a cookout with friends—it can hold a six-pack of your favorite beverage.
Everything In The Right Place

Do you prep food in batches on the weekend? Rejoice in arranging your vegetables, grains, and proteins in one of the two spill-free compartments and add fruit and snacks to the other.

Just fill, stack, and wrap neatly with the included strap.
