    1. A lunch box that comes with three containers and can hold everything but the kitchen sink.


    Promising review: "This is the holy grail of lunch boxes for me. I tend to bring a lot of containers to work because of my dietary needs. This includes having a drink container with a pre-made green drink in it. I couldn't find a lunch box that could hold my lunch and my drink, saving me a hand to open doors with while my other hand has my coffee in it. This lunch box holds it all and more! I have space for extras and side pockets to slip my cellphone in, in a hurry. Plus, it's very square and the compact design is stylish. It looks more like a camera bag than a lunch box. I couldn't be happier with how it performs!" —A. Whitehouse

    Price: $26.95+ (available in five colors)

    2. A freezable lunch box that'll stay cold for up to 10 hours so you'll never have to worry about your food going bad.


    Promising review: "It's the perfect size and it zips all the way shut. Plus, it has a handy handle. It has a clip, so you could clip it onto your backpack as well. There is a mesh side pocket for utensils or a small drink. I might use this for a napkin or a baggie of wipes for my kids to wipe their hands and their faces after lunch. The best thing about this lunch bag is that you put it in the freezer, freeze it, and your food stays cold all day. The front and back of the bag both freeze and keep everything cold. It says in the description that it keeps your food cold for 10 hours. So I decided to try it. I froze it all night long and took it out at 10 a.m. I set it on our counter with a sandwich and apple in it. I kept feeling it to see when the bag unthawed. Our house is kept between 68 and 70 degrees. The bag finally started to warm up at 7 p.m. It stayed cold for 9 hours! I feel great about my kids leaving at 7 a.m. for school and having lunch at noon since their food will be cold! I worry constantly about the mayo. Advice: I would also buy an extra ice pack from the store and throw it in the freezer in case you forget to put your kids lunch bag back in the freezer at night." —Kelly McBride

    Price: $22.95 (available in 10 designs)

    3. A lightweight lunch box to hold whatever you pack for your little one.


    Promising review: "I love these Wildkin Lunch boxes! They are the perfect size to fit a real water bottle or Thermos, a sandwich, chips, apples, etc., or a plastic lunch box container. I also bought the 3-Compartment Bento Lunch Box Containers and the Fit & Fresh Cool Penguin Ice Packs and they work perfectly together. After 3/4 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 it again!" —Book Worm Mom

    Price: $12.99+ (available in 43 designs)

    4. A collapsible lunch box so you're not burdened with the task of carrying around an empty lunch box ever again.


    Promising review: "I have been searching for the perfect lunch bag for years! I am an international flight attendant and I do not want to eat airline food on the plane anymore! I prefer to bring a nice meal from home and enjoy healthy snacks. Every bag I bought ended up with an issue that I don't like. This one is absolutely perfect. It holds a lot of food. It's tall enough to hold a healthy beverage, deep enough for a nice square container, and has outside mesh pockets for a water bottle. The zipper section inside is great for utensils, napkins, condiments, etc. I love that I can throw it on my shoulder if I need an extra hand or just grab it by the top handle. The outside zipper pocket is a handy for items I want easy access to, such as my passport when I travel through customs! The biggest bonus for me is that it will collapse and stow in my suitcase when it is empty. So many other lunch bags are too stiff and I end up carrying around an empty bag at the end of a trip. This lunch bag will meet all my needs and I am so happy with my purchase." —Nancy

    Price: $21.97

    5. A machine-washable lunch box purrrfect for cat lovers of any age!


    Promising review: "I bought it for my daughter who is entering kindergarten. She loves cats and the picture on this lunch bag is adorable. The size is perfect for her to carry. It is very light, cute, and convenient. It does the job of keeping things cool or warm. The zipper is very durable and easy for my daughter to open and close. If it gets dirty, I wipe it clean and let it air dry. So far she’s been using it every day for four months and it still looks new." —Glad I

    Price: $13.99 (available in 18 designs)

    6. A well-insulated lunch box that'll be fashionable and amusement park–friendly.,

    Promising review: "My family travels to amusement parks a lot. We have season passes to Disney and are always looking for ways to save money. One is by bringing lunch to the park. I have found that kids' lunch boxes don't hold enough for our family, and you are not allowed to bring a hard-sided cooler into the park. I was looking for a soft-sided reusable lunch bag when I came across this one. This bag is perfect. I think this is the most fashionable lunch bag I have ever seen. My teen daughter told me that it can double as a purse, it's that cute! It has almost a canvas like feel to the outside and very nice pocket with a zipper which is perfect for condiments or napkins or wipes. As you can see on the inside it is very roomy. It can hold water bottles, coke cans, and sandwiches without a problem. It keeps things very cool with the thick foil, waterproof insulation." —S Shelton

    Price: $12.99+ (available in seven colors)

    7. A 5-star rated lunch box with multiple insulated compartments and a luggage pass-through, which will come in handy when you travel.


    Promising review: "I work an office job so I need something big enough to hold meals, but compact enough to not be a hassle during my commute on public transportation. It needs to look professional. I'm also an athlete, so I carry up to six meals/snacks per day. This bag could handle all of that. It's the perfect size, fits many items, but isn't overbearing. Has many varied compartments, thick construction, thick zippers, and removable lining from the main compartment. This will most likely last you a long time and keep your food cool. I carry this with me to work every single day now. If you bring lunch to work regularly, this is a must buy." —Matthew Robert

    Price: $42.93

    8. A small lunch box that's built strong and will be good in the office.


    Promising review: "This is a good lunch box for grown-ups and a professional environment. It has enough room for a normal-sized lunch. If you eat big or carry big containers, this will not work for you. There is a mesh pouch on the inside lid. It could be used for flat ice packs or non-fragile snacks (like chips). There is also an elastic strap that is held closed by Velcro. I believe this is to hold a soda can in place (nobody likes a shaken soda). There is also a pouch on the outside of the lid for thin items. It is not hard sided, so you have some flexibility if you like to stuff it. Lastly the handle is strong. You could probably carry a brick in there if you wanted." —No Doubt DJs

    Price: $14.79 (available in 10 colors)

    9. A sleek bento lunch box so compact, it can fit in your laptop bag AND hold more food than you'd expect.


    Promising review: "I have food allergies, so I always come prepared when I travel. I bought this for a business trip to slide into my laptop bag and carry on the plane. It fits great and held just enough food. I am not a light eater as I'm a woman who is almost six feet tall. I was worried when I ordered it that the amount of food it would accommodate would leave me hungry, but it was perfect. I used it on my departing flight and on my return flight. On my first flight I had a pita sandwich and on the return flight I had grocery store spring rolls. I would say it took up less room than an average-sized textbook in my laptop bag. I travel for work a lot and I think this lunch box is a game changer for me." —Jill

    Price: $20.97

    10. A retro lunch box that's easy to open and large enough to hold your superhero-sized meals.


    Promising review: "My son started school this year and I didn’t want to buy him a zip-up lunch bag. I figured this one would be easier for him to carry and open when it was time for lunch. I spent about a week looking for something that would work for us. I’m glad I made this purchase. He absolutely loves Spider-Man and loves this lunch box. It's bigger than I expected. I know they tell you the dimensions in the product description, but I was still pleasantly surprised." —Adilene Diaz

    Price: $12.52+ (available in 15 designs)

    11. A two-tiered lunch box that'll keep food warm in the top compartment, while the bottom compartment keeps food cold.


    Promising review: "If you are really looking for a big lunch box that holds more than one meal at a time, this product is definitely for you! I have had this lunch box for almost a week now and I have jam packed it to the max. Very well-made material and also keeps my food very cold when I have ice packs in it. Yesterday I came home from work at 4 p.m. and totally forgot to unpack my lunch box until later in the evening close to midnight. I was so impressed to see that everything in there was still super cold since I have had those ice packs in there since 7:30 a.m. that morning and I could feel how well the lunch box was keeping the cold inside. I also love the fact that when I shove like three meals in the bag when I'm working all day, carrying it is a breeze! It is so lightweight. The strap is awesome because it doesn’t move or feel like it’s going to fall off of your shoulder. This is important to me because I'm usually carrying multiple bags a day to work and it just makes my life a little easier! My only small complaint is that the drink holder in the side is not made well, I’ve tried to put travel cups in there and they just end up falling out because it is simply not a deep enough pocket. Other than that, this lunch box is honestly a dream come true, sooo glad I picked this one!" —Ciara

    Price: $15.99

    12. A lunch box to discreetly hold your lunch while keeping you in style.


    Promising review: "I 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 (a tall one and a short one) 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." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $12.99

    13. A lunch box that's sure to get you lots of looks come lunchtime. 👀


    Promising review: "I ordered this as a gift. It arrived on time and was a very high quality item. The zipper even was sturdy! I was pleasantly surprised at how well it was made. It matched the picture and description spot on. I wasn't sure how well it would function as a lunch box since it seemed kind of like a gag gift, but it's perfectly functional and well-insulated." —TAYLOR

    Price: $15.99

    Now you'll always be happy you packed your lunch.
