School children, office slaves, country walkers. Don’t compromise on the security of your lunch. Anorak has sought out five fun lunch boxes to keep you and your sandwiches looking good.
The endurance athlete of lunch boxes, the Sigg Mini or Maxi has a classic camping quality whilst boasting the resilience to protect even the squishiest of sandwiches. Made of anodised aluminium with snap-lock fastenings and a rubber seal, this Swiss made lunch box is built for tireless adventures across rough wilderness. The Maxi size will even fit a small roast chicken. Grrr!
Sigg Mini £20.69 and Maxi £22.99 available at www.sigg-online.com
Want to feel like you’re having lunch in the canteen of your favourite retro, school-based, coming-of-age TV show? Then look no further than the Brown Paper Lunchbag. Available in packs of 20 and made from recycled paper, these classic lunch conveyors are the perfect size for a sandwich and a piece of fruit (or a Curly Wurly and a yoyo).
Brown Paper Lunchbag £2.50 for 20 available at www.lunchboxesetc.co.uk
Tiffin tins are a traditional Indian style of lunch box with three tiers of stacked stainless steel tins to hold all your lunchtime treats. Anorak particularly likes the charm of ‘second’ tiffin tins that are slightly marked or dented.
28cm high, three tier tins £7.99 at www.tiffintin.com
The plastic lunch box is the one we all carried to school in some colour or design (Anorak recalls Care Bears, Rainbow and Batman styles in particular). Pick your favourite colour and be sure to cover it in stickers.
Plain plastic lunch box £4.75 at www.lunchboxesetc.co.uk
A healthy, grown-up option, Graze is an online lunch-ordering service that lets you pick out nibbly treats for the day and then delivers them to your work in a streamline, personalised lunch box. Team Anorak is especially keen to try the 2-a-day Milkshake Mix of white chocolate, strawberries and sun-dried banana.
Introductory offer of £1.49 for the first box, £2.99 thereafter www.graze.com
