Kids are going back to school this week and that means it's time to whip out that lunch box. But even we older kids need to eat lunch, and what better way to save a buck than to bring your lunch to work. Like any accessory, a lunch box makes a statement. So choose yours carefully.
1. I just want to be cruisin'
This men's fuel gauge grab bag from Shopzilla tells your co-workers you're really into cars...or maybe your love tank is half empty and needs some filling?
2. I'm thirty-something going on 8
Any vintage lunchbox with an 80's show theme screams your age. Add Daisy Duke to it and we know where your head is. Take a a trip down memory lane on eBay and find your favorite.
3. I'm into bondage
Vivienne Westwood is known for her avant-garde fashions.; Her son, Ben Westwood, is following in his mother's footsteps with his collection of erotic lunchboxes. You may want to check your employee manual before you show up with any of these.
4. I'm great with my hands
An updated version of the lunch boxes often seen on construction sites, this 2-tier stainless version shows you're serious about your food. And since a ravenous appetite often follows hard labor, you must have muscles under that suit.
5. I am very neat and organized
An adult Bento style lunchbox is the perfect way to keep you and your lunch neatly organized. Just make sure you're not a tad bit too tightly wound?
Whatever your style is, don't be afraid to flaunt it. If all else fails, brown bag it.
