    1. A patterned box that'll stand out from the crowd and features a zippered front pocket, an inner elastic to secure a water bottle or ice pack, and an inner mesh pouch.


    Promising review: "I love these Wildkin Lunch boxes! They are the perfect size to fit a real water bottle or thermos, sandwich, chips, apples, etc., or a plastic lunch box container. I also bought the EasyLunchboxes 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box Containers, Set of 4, Classic and the Fit & Fresh Cool Coolers Slim Penguin Lunch Ice Packs, Multicolored, Set of 4, and they work together perfectly. After three quarters of a year of school, these are still in great shape. I bought the Big Dot Aqua and the Butterfly Garden, and they are both adorable. I would buy again!" —Book Worm Mom

    Price: $9.99+ (available in 27 patterns)

    2. A unicorn your little one will be ~dreaming~ about all the time. It'll actually make them excited to bring their lunch to school.


    Promising review: "Got this for my daughter. She loves it. It is able to fit all of her school snacks and drinks." —Chris Yturralde

    Price: $16.99 (available in unicorn and off-duty mermaid)

    3. A floral cooler to help your lunch game really ~bloom~. Who needs to go out and spend $20 on a sandwich when you can just show this off to everyone.


    Promising review: "This lunch box is beautiful and convenient. It's the perfect size to hold a lunch and drink and with a cold pack inside. The food stays a perfect temperature. The zipper pocket on the front holds eating utensils and napkins. I highly recommend!" —Mama1919

    Price: $40 (available in 14 patterns)

    4. A soft neoprene tote you can throw in the washing machine when your yogurt spills. Again...


    Promising review: "I'm a dude. I bring lunch to work every day. I care about aesthetics, and I can never be caught dead carrying a grocery store plastic bag to work to carry my food. This is super well made, aesthetically pleasing, insulated well, and inexpensive. There's nothing more I could ask for in a lunch bag. The neoprene is pretty stretchy, so it expands to accommodate a fair amount of stuff. I also like that it's machine-washable. It's by no means leakproof, but the neoprene is fairly absorbent. I've had some spills but never leaked outside." —hpsky

    Price: $16.15+ (available in 16 colors and patterns)

    5. A soft insulated one your child will love to ~infinity and beyond~.


    Promising review: "This is so cute and vibrant in color. My 3 year old loves his lunch box! It fits most items. It's a hard large plastic container with a 360 cup with handles. I put a ice pack inside, and it kept everything cool." —Cory

    Price: $16.99

    6. A canvas tote so chic, people will never guess that you've got a peanut butter and jelly sandwich stashed in there.

    Promising review: "I love this lunch bag!! It was exactly what I was looking for. It's cute and simple. It may be small for those who like extra compartments to pack their lunch, but I believe it still fits a good amount of food/snacks!" —Wasabi

    Price: $30

    7. A kit with a matching bottle and containers so everything coordinates. When your lunch is together, your life is together.


    Promising review: "I bought this bag because of the size, the drink holders, and the design. It is very cute and easy to wash. I love the color. I use glass containers and the bag can handle the heavy load—no tearing at the handles or drink pockets. It's very durable—I highly recommended." —Colleen U.

    Price: $29.99 (available in 10 patterns)

    8. A tote you won't be ashamed to carry around at all — in fact, you'll probably want to show this off to all your friends.


    It's insulated with a zipper closure and exterior pocket. Plus, it comes with an ice pack.

    Promising review: "This is a very cute little lunch bag. The first day I took it to work, the ladies in my office all gushed over it and wanted to know where to buy one. I love that the ice pack is included. The inside is nice smooth insulation material. It's kind of small inside once you close it though. I put two sandwich boxes inside, and I had some trouble zipping it. My food was cold at lunch, but at the end of an eight-hour shift, the ice pack was fully melted (which is fine — just want to let you know realistic expectations — it's not going to keep a drink cold all day, for example)." —Linda Fox

    Price: $14.32+ (available in six patterns)

    9. A soft lunch kit to help your child show all their friends just how cool of a parent you are for getting one that matches whatever they're obsessed with right now.

    Promising review: "This lunch box is super cute and good quality. It is soft (I was expecting a hard plastic) and insulated. It appears that it will hold up for the entire school year. Just the right size to fit an entire lunch, including an ice pack and a drink. I would recommend." —Anonymous Customer

    Price: $15.93+ (available in 34 varieties)

    10. A neoprene bag designed by artists from around the world to give you something truly beautiful — so beautiful you might want to put it on display instead of packing your lunch in it.


    This Really Mermaid design was created by artist Monika Strigel from Germany; many of the designs donate a portion of every sale to a coordinating charity.

    Promising review: "I saw a coworker with this lunch bag and fell in love with it so I ordered one for myself! It was delivered two days after I ordered it, and it was perfect for my needs at work. The bottom expands and is roomy enough for several items including a bottle of water. The fabric is rich and vibrant in color and the neoprene keeps my lunch cool and is very strong! I love everything about it!" —Ashsmama

    Price: $17.99+ (available in 20 designs)

    11. A bento box set with five inner containers so berries don't end up getting their juice all over a sandwich (nobody likes that).


    Promising review: "This is a really a cute lunchbox set. The insulated shell works well on it's own, but it is nice to have hard case inside to make sure nothing is smashed while in kiddo's backpack. It did take some practice for my 7 year old to get the box clasp, but I do like that it's pretty secure. Overall, I'm quite pleased and will look to purchase another for the other kiddo soon." —AnnaKay

    Price: $19.99 (available in 23 patterns)

    12. A chic bag that looks more like a cute purse or tote, if carrying around a big lunch bag just isn't your thing.


    Promising review: "I've fell in love with my lunch bag. It is very cute and stylish. When it first arrived, I was upset because it looked small, BUT it actually fits more than I thought. I can fit my two Nutribullet cups with three small Tupperware containers OR my two Nutribullet cups and three bottles of water. I pack my lunch at night, so I put everything in my bag and leave it in the refrigerator overnight. My drinks remain cold throughout the day at work, so I'd say this bag is well insulated. I am a satisfied buyer!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $10.99+ (available in 13 styles)

    13. A retro inspired one because lunch is a game and you're here to win, and win you will.


    Promising review: "I was worried about the color and how it will show its wear and tear considering it is white-ish, and it will be used by my kindergartener (he is 5). He absolutely loves it and has been bringing it to school for the past few months. I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised that it doesn't look dirty at all. I'm definitely happy with this purchase." —Feona S.

    Price: $22.95

    14. A cutest Narwhal that'll make everyone go "awwwww" when they see it because, omg, I just can't get over it.


    Promising review: "My 3-year-old daughter LOVES this lunchbox. It has plenty of room for her bento box (the smaller version) and extra snacks in the netted part. It also can clip to her matching backpack. It just hangs, but it's nice to have the clip and option when my hands are full. It's super easy to spot clean." —JE

    Price: $8.89+ (available in narwhal, leopard, and unicorn)

    15. A Bentogo with five compartments perfectly proportioned for the appetites of children ages 3 to 7.


    Promising review: "We have loved using our Bentgo. My kids get bored with sandwiches and absolutely love packing soups and yogurts, things that would normally spill, but do not spill in this lunchbox. My children love having all the compartments for variety as well. The company has awesome customer service. After two years a couple of the lunch boxes had little leakage, the company helped us get new ones and even sent us some complimentary trays. They are very friendly, personable, and attentive to your needs." —Jada Crofts

    Price: $29.99 (available in six patterns)

    16. A striped one that looks more like a chic tote than something you stuff full of food to keep yourself from starving all day.


    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for my mom, and she loved it. She uses it for work, to bring her lunch in everyday. Insulated to keep stuff cool/warm, and a nice amount of room. She also thought it looked cute, so I guess the design is nice as well." —Mario

    Price: $9.99 (available in stripe and grey)

    17. A freezable lunch box you don't have to worry about forgetting to pack an ice pack with. The bag IS the ice pack, so that's pretty great.


    Promising review: "I love this lunch bag. It fits everything (I carry a lot, from food, yogurt, fruit, etc and drinks). So far, everything fits. I can fit a 20 oz bottle of diet coke in the basket on the side, and it never even feels heavy. I have gotten more compliments on how cute it is, than any other thing!" —Jennifer Fox-Williams

    Price: $21.99 (available in 23 patterns)

    18. A crossbody bag with a long strap so you're not forced to carry it in your hands. Just swing this baby over your shoulder and take on the day.


    Promising review: "This is a great bag! I was pleasantly surprised by how well made this is. It's also a perfect size. It expands quite a bit when you open it up. It's perfect for the beach, work, etc. I really like that it is insulated inside. You can pack at least 6 cans of soda inside and not worry about leaking. I love the color. It's very neutral and easy to clean. The strap can be removed when needed. I use it every time I take the kids anywhere and also use it for my work lunch. I highly recommend." —Karie Tabata

    Price: $19.99+ (available in gray, black, and pink)

    19. A metallic bag so chic, you could honestly pull it off as a purse.


    Promising review: "I just received my lunch bag, and I am in love! It so beautiful! I love the material. It’s very stylish and cute. It big enough for a long day. I can pack a few meals along with some snacks. It has a front pocket as well. It was very well described." —Elizabeth Valenzuela

    Price: $17.99 (available in 19 colors and patterns)

    20. A simple one designed with minimalists in mind. They deserve cute lunch boxes, too!


    Promising review: "I love this bag!! It’s very roomy and keeps food cold for hours with the additional ice pack. It’s well insulated and made with quality construction. The price point is very reasonable and much less than other lower quality lunch bags. I plan to purchase another as a gift. There is also a good diverse color selection. I HIGHLY recommend!" —Susan Alexander

    Price: $12.99 (available in four sizes and 12 colors)

    21. A sequin one because even lunch deserves a chance to shine. Yes, it doesn't get as much attention as breakfast, dinner, or even brunch, but that doesn't mean that we love it any less.


    Promising review: "When my daughter picked this for her lunchbox, I gave it 3 days before the sequins started coming off, but I was wrong. It's a very cute and roomy lunchbox and has held up to weeks of 'drawing' and playing with the sequins by the girls. Also, it's easy to stuff into her backpack. And it can hold a good deal of things." —G. Avriett

    Price: $16.99+ (available in four styles)
