Cute Lunch Boxes You Can Get on Amazon for Under $30

By: Lisa Valente, M.S., R.D.

Because kids don't get to have all the fun!

I pack lunch almost every day. Usually I'm just throwing my food in a reusable grocery bag (I tend to pack a lot of snacks). But now that the weather is warmer, my hot car is reminding me that using an insulated lunch box would be a good idea. I went to Amazon to find something cute and not too pricey. I was pleasantly surprised by how many highly-rated options there were for under $30 (I'd rather spend my money filling my lunch box up with food).

Here are five lunch box favorites that are adorable, insulated and perfect for packing up your meals and snacks.

1. PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag with Zip Closure, Tie Dye

PackIt lunchboxes are neat because you don't need an ice pack. The whole bag folds flat and gets stored in your freezer. The gel that lines the pack freezes and your food stays cold. This sack is a classic size and shape but comes in lots of fun colors. I'm very into this indigo tie dye but it also comes in camo, cat print, plaid and solid black. It has over 4,000 reviews and lands at a solid 4 stars.

2. Kate Spade New York Lunch Tote, Strawberries

This uber-chic linen tote with strawberries and "Just Desserts" in tiny gold type won my heart. The white lining wipes clean and it's got a little handle on top for toting around your petit fours or just your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Kate Spade also has polka dot and striped versions if those are more your style. Some of the reviewers say the tote runs small (it's 8 inches wide, 7 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall) so it may not be able to hold all your larger lunch containers.

3. Colony Co. Lunch Bag, Waxed Canvas

I am digging the brown bag vibe on this canvas lunch sack from Colony Co. It comes in grey and blue too if those are more your style. Over 200 people have given it 4.6 stars. The design is super simple. If you're a former brown bagger it keeps your lunch look similar, without using single-use bags. I like that when it's empty, it would fold small for storage.

4. Art of Lunch Insulated Neoprene Lunch Bag

Art of Lunch is making these neoprene totes using designs from artists around the world. You can choose from a variety of designs, including birds, geometric prints, mermaid scales and this adorable fox in the woods. They also have a lifetime guarantee, in case anything happens to your bags. Plus, the totes are washable.

5. Fluf Reusable Canvas Lunch Bag

These little blue hearts are making my heart go pitter patter. This tote is adorable (and like most of the others comes in a variety of patterns). It's also machine washable and seems big enough to hold a decent-sized lunch. The lining is water resistant and food safe.
