This is a series of posts I'm going to do about good gift ideas for the lunch packer - or for the follower of my blog!
First things first, I want to disclose that I am an Amazon Affliliate, and the links I post are my affiliate links.
What does the lunch packer need most? Well, containers, of course!
My favorite containers are obviously Easy Lunchboxes.
I love Easy Lunchboxes because they are sturdy, stackable, easy, and dishwasher safe. I have three sets, I think, so there are always clean ones ready for our family lunch packing. They are a good size for kids or grown ups.
Easy Lunchboxes also have a cooler available, which holds up to three of their boxes. Perfect for outings!
If you would prefer something other than Easy Lunchboxes, there are of course other boxes available. Since the lamented closing of the Ichiban Kan online store, options are more limited (and more expensive), but there are some available on Amazon.
The first boxes I got were these Emsa divided boxes. They are also sturdy and dishwasher safe, with removable trays. These Lock & Lock container sets are also wonderful - the smaller containers are perfect for yogurt, applesauce, or fruit cups. I love using the Lock & Locks for snacks.
For other options, Emsa also has a smaller divided container. Also popular are Laptop Lunch Boxes. You can also buy their Bento Buddies container sets separately, which I happen to have.
Another great online shop, which I have not ordered from, but I know other lunch bloggers have, is Allthingsforsale. They have some great items.
Inner containers and accessories are also important.
Allthingsforsale has a good selection of them. I like them for things like ranch dressing or nutella or the like.
