Adult-Approved Lunch Boxes Our Editors Would Totally Take to Work
Schlep that office lunch in style.
Going out to eat for lunch every day can add up quickly, which makes meal prep and bringing your own lunch that much more appealing. And while there are plenty of lunch boxes out there that make carrying a bag of food to and from the office less of a pain, most are marketed to school-aged kids. Luckily, there are some great, adult-friendly totes out there that make packing a lunch feel like a grown-up decision, and not a middle-school activity. Whether you're packing a salad, sandwich or lots of snacks, we've got a lunch box for you.
Our Favorite Totes
Available in a plethora of designs and patters, you can count of this lunch tote for its flexibility and insulation. It's the perfect size for packing a small lunch, and the soft-grip handles make it easy and comfortable to carry around.
If you don't have the hands to carry an extra bag around, might we suggest this chic lunch bag with a long, cross-body strap. The removable, insulated liner makes cleanup simple, plus the exterior disguises your lunch tote for a chic messenger bag.
Best Bento Boxes
Giving you both function and style, this two-tiered bento box makes the perfect vessel if you're packing multiple meals for the day. Whether it's breakfast and a sandwich or a lunch salad and a little something for an afternoon snack, this one has you covered.
Great for a Salad
We love the Porter storage bowl for its sleek design and promise to maintain a secure seal. Pack a salad, grain bowl or your favorite dip without worrying whether or not it will withstand your long commute.
When it comes to packing a salad, we think the most important element to any lunch box is compartments. This Rubbermaid option is just perfect for that. Separate all your fixings and assemble when you get to the office.
