11 Awe-Inspiring Bento Boxes

Cute and impressive lunchbox novelties to help inspire your lunch-packing creative juices.

Bento boxes are a traditional Japanese lunch, served in a compact container and often intricately-styled to look like animals, landscapes or other whimsical things. They are often used for picnics, day trips and school lunches. For some, the bento box is a way to get young and picky eaters to better enjoy their food. Turning a plate of rice and vegetables into a colorful, smiling animal may tempt leery lunchers into enjoying healthy food.

Bento box experts must consider the mix of flavors and colors, as well as the overall final design. The transportation of the box is another important factor. Successful boxes must be able to endure the effects of transportation — the jostling of a backpack — without destroying the decorative elements by the time it comes around to eating it.

So, with back-to-school season in full swing and autumn just around the corner, we bring you 11 cute and impressive lunchbox novelties to help inspire your lunch-packing creative juices.
