7 Cute Bento Boxes ...

By Jennifer

In today’s eco-conscious world, it’s considered passé and practically vulgar to carry paper lunch bags. A more modern, thoughtful girl will carry a reusable bag or a bento box for her lunchtime fare! But that modern girl also wants to be stylish, and bento boxes can be a bit boring. No worries, my dear! There are plenty of cute bento boxes if you know where to look, and here are a few for your perusal…

1 Vinyl Vittles Bento Box

Vinyl Vittles Bento BoxPrice: $10.99 at
While you certainly won’t be able to stash your entire lunch in this rockin’ little bento box, you will be able to use it for smaller snacky type things, like gummy bears and strawberries and goldfish crackers. It’s made of hand-washable plastic, with a snug-fitting lid, and measures about 3½ inches across and 1½ inches tall.

2 Eating Apple Sandwich Keeper

Eating Apple Sandwich KeeperPrice: $15.99 at
Plastic sandwich baggies are okay, I suppose, but they’re not very eco-friendly, and they don’t protect your peanut butter and jelly against smushing, do they? That’s why this little apple-shaped sandwich keeper is such a good idea! It’s made of sturdy plastic in Red Delicious or Granny Smith Green, and is just the right size for your fave lunch-time treat.

3 Chéri Bento Box

C’est bon, n’est-ce pas? This little set contains two stackable bento boxes, ideal for storing your lunch or snacks in style. It’s made of plastic with a divided bottom container and a roomy upper level. I love the bright colors, too!

4 Pastel Present Future Bento Boxes

Price: $38.99 at
Keep all of your snacks handy and adorable with this 3-piece bento box set. Each little box has a matching lid, and the biggest box, on the bottom, pays homage to my favorite time of day, syrup o’clock! I love the darling design and the color scheme, too… the bear is adorable!

5 The Meal Deal Lunch Set

This set is more than just a stack of coordinating bento boxes — it also includes the reusable lunch bag to tote them in, too! They’re all made of recycled plastic, and they’re microwave and dishwasher safe. Choose from teal and blue or charcoal grey… both color schemes are just gorgeous, and I love the plaid bag with the little tree design.

6 Gourmet Gardens Container Set

Aren’t these bento boxes fancy! They feature a bright floral pattern with contrasting snug-fitting lids… the print is somewhat retro-inspired but thoroughly modern, the perfect way to store your lunchtime or pot-luck goodies!
