Many people start the year with a new year’s resolution of packing lunches, but it can be hard to keep it up all year long. Kawaii lunch accessories definitely help so here’s some favourites. Beware though – it will make everyone much more interested in your lunch!
The Japanese are on a different level when it comes to packing lunches with a whole industry around bento boxes, lunch bags, containers and decorations to make your lunch cute, healthy and easy to transport. Check out sites like Bento&co (Japan) and BentoUSA for ideas, whether you pack sandwiches, hot meals, salads or soup. This Totoro bento box is a great starter piece as it has space for a few different types of food.
If snacks are your downfall, these kitty snack boxes from Paperchase (UK) are perfect for filling with healthier treats to get you through the day. They nest inside each other for storage too and are only £8 for the set.
Keep your own cutlery handy so you don’t need to pick up wasteful plastic versions. This cutlery set at JapanCentre (UK) has chopsticks, fork and spoon inside a cute panda case to keep everything together – and looking adorable.
If you like a hot meal, these kawaii lunch bags at ARTBOX (UK) have a zipped insulated pouch to keep everything warm. There’s a few different Sanrio characters to choose from and this Little Twin Stars design is even in the sale!
I am always forgetting to drink water when I’m working, but a cute water bottle has helped a lot. Keep this Pusheen water bottle from Hey Chickadee (USA) on your desk or in your bag to stay hydrated without spending money on soda or coffee.
Check back later in the week as MissMuffcake will have some tips for cute Veganuary snacks.
