We found the most beautiful to-go alternatives to your usual Ziploc bag or plastic dish. So beautiful, you’ll probably want to walk around the office and show them off.
Onyx Sandwich Box, Goop, $12
Glass breaks, and plastic isn’t great to have your food in. Which is precisely why the founders of Onyx made this two-piece, indestructible stainless-steel box. And it just looks really cool, too. The two seperate areas allow you to separate your salad (or cookies, whatever you’re style is) from your sandwich.
Takenaka Bento Box, Anthropologie, $29
Could this be any cuter? This bento was inspired by traditional bento boxes, but majorly updating it with a bold choice of neon colors and a coordinating boldly-colored secure band. This one isn’t the most vacuum-tight seal, so it’s perfect for dry snacks like almonds, cookies, cookies, and cookies.
Rig-Tig Keep It Cool Lunchbox, Connox, $36
As the name eludes, a cooling element is integrated in the base of the lunchbox, but with Rig-Tig being a Scandinavian design company, they do it in perfect, minimalist fashion. This is perfect for keeping your lunch nice and cool for hours on end, and especially great for those on-the-go that don’t have access to a fridge.
Eco Lunchbox Solo Rectangle, Anthropologie, $20
Never can have enough chic stainless steel on-the-go lunchboxes, right? Especially when they are BPA-, plastic-, and phthalates-free. These are pretty stackable, too, so perfect for those that are tight on storage space in their kitchens.
Marbled Ceramic Large Food Storage Bowl, Urban Outfitters, $23
Why aren’t more brands making marble-finished ceramic bowls? They are so cute! This gray marbled version is great for picnics and potlucks, thanks to the handy lock-tight lid, and it’s substantial size (perfect for your famous potato salad).
Black + Blum Food Flask, Anthropologie, $30
This one is vacuum-sealed tight though, so throw those soups, hot toddies, and anything else you’d like to keep hot or cold for hours—six for hot, eight for cold, to be precise.
Bee’s Wrap Sandwich Wrap, Anthropologie, $11
Created in 2012 by a mother of three in Vermont, Bee’s Wrap is simply made from beeswax, cotton, and tree resin—think of it as the sustainable, clean version of Ziploc and Saran Wrap. And this handy sandwich version is perfect, and adorable. When you’re done eating your tasty sandwich, just wash off the wrap, let it dry and reuse.
