My new favourite lunchbox, or today more appropriately called breaky-box, is awesome! I first discovered this beautiful box on one of my favourite design sites. I thought it was a great idea, but didn’t think much of it after that. I think something about shipping and handling or not shipping to Canada, or perhaps just plain forgetting about it, snagged my dreams of owning such a functional and pretty lunchbox.
Until recently, when I was in DeSerres helping my mother purchase a very large canvas for her next painting endeavour, my dreams were answered! (I got it in green). Also called the Bento Box, the box features two containers that easily insert inside.
One is tiny, with an attached lid, and can be used for dressings, or in my case – maple syrup! The other, takes up almost half of the box and has a detachable lid. You can use the box with or without these insertable containers, but for my breakfast this morning I opted to use them. I put maple syrup in the tiny one, and yogurt in the larger one. Then I filled the remaining space of the box with strawberries and blueberries.
OK, I may sound crazy going all gaga over a lunchbox. But it holds my breakfast – strawberries, blueberries, yogurt, maple syrup and granola so beautifully… truthfully the granola was in a ziploack bag, but the rest of it stayed sealed without any spilage!
