Back to school…back to school…to prove to dad that I’m not a fool. I’ve got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight. I hope I don’t get in a fight. Oh, back to school…back to school.”

You don’t have to be Billy Madison or a child to enjoy a new lunch box, but the prospect of heading back to school for a brand new year of learning and crustless PB&Js surely makes the purchase all the more exciting.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite lunch boxes, all of which have gotten quite an upgrade from the ol’ wrinkled paper bag we were accustomed to as kids. From high-tech and modern to clever and nostalgic, there’s literally a lunch carrier for every preference and personality.

Check them out below!

Wooden Lunch Box with Chopsticks


This may be a bit too sophisticated for the average child, but if you’re a grown-up who wants to impress your co-workers with chopstick skills, look no further. Buy it here.

Artist Designed Neoprene Lunch Tote


Oh, look at all the pretty colors! We never thought our lunch bag would like it came straight from the Museum of Modern Art, but we’re certainly not complaining. Sometimes food can be a work of art. Buy it here.

Thermos Wookie Lunch Box

Star Wars Chewbacca wookie lunch box


This Chewy-inspired lunch box is kind of disturbing, but sure to delight some “Star Wars” fans, as long as they don’t mind the inevitable crumbs and food stains in the wookie hair. Buy it here.

Stainless Steel EcoLunch Box


This is an ideal option for any eco-friendly minimalist. It also pairs particularly well with barbell moustaches, skinny jeans, and hipster flannel. Buy it here.

Unicorn Lunch Pal


Who wouldn’t want to rock a unicorn (with a 3D horn!) in the elementary school or work cafeteria? If that person is you, we’re not sure if we can be friends. Buy it here.

Insulated Lunch Purse


We’re pretty sure this “lunch purse” looks better than most of the designer bags in our closet. And its sole purpose is to hold a sandwich and a bag of pretzels. Gotta love fashion. Buy it here.

Reusable Lunch Sack


The brown bag makes a triumphant return, and this time it gets a practical and sustainable upgrade. We love how you can customize the timeless classic by writing messages. Ours would say “keep out” as a clear message to pesky lunch thieves. Buy it here.

Despicable Me Lunch Box


We’re not particularly obsessed with Minions, but we’re obsessed with this Minion-shaped lunch box. This is exactly the face we make when our lunch hour is delayed because of a late meeting. Buy it here.

Stackable Lunch Box


No, this isn’t a tiered Thermos. It’s all about efficiency with this lunch box of stacked compartments. You can also surprise your kid with a treat like M&Ms. Where will you put them? They’ll have to guess. (But they only have three options, so it’s not that difficult.) Buy it here.

The Beatles Drum Lunch Tin


It’s an inarguable fact that The Beatles are one of the best bands of all time. It’s also an inarguable fact that a drum-shaped lunch tin is an amazing thing. Combine two great things for a product that will have everyone envious. Buy it here.
