Let’s be honest: Half the fun of back-to-school season is back-to-school shopping. And what better way to get in the back-to-school spirit than taking your lunch (or your kid’s lunch, or, hey, even your dog’s lunch) in style? That’s what we thought. We’re so excited about the new year that we went out and rounded up the eight most adorable (and affordable) doggie lunch boxes on the market—we’ll leave the packing up to you. Don’t forget dessert!
8 cute lunch boxes for dog lovers
We’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t feature a super groovy, super retro Mystery Machine lunch box featuring none other than our favorite mystery-solving dog, Scooby-Doo. Cute, compact, collapsible, and gets the whole insulation job done? No “rut-roh!”s here! Oh, and did we mention it’s PVC-free? Because it’s PVC-free.
This little guy is so adorable we almost can’t stand it. The lunch bag doesn’t only have the face of a dog, but it’s got ears that stick out the sides, too—does it get cuter than that? We didn’t think so. With an interior mesh pocket perfect for stowing utensils or an icepack, this is the ultimate preschool pail.
Neat-oh is a total understatement when it comes to this brown bag. This chemical-free picnic lunch box not only boasts an adorable puppy dog face, but also zips out into a placemat that’s super easy to clean and perfect for posting up at the park. It’s basically a picnic basket and blanket all in one! We can dig it.
If you’re more of a tote person, look no further than Fluf’s doggy lunch bag, which conveniently snaps shut. Made of 100 percent organic cotton and food-safe lining, the “doggy bag” (get it?) features a fun art-deco-inspired illustration of a dog that’s both sweet and chic. Grownups take note! This is totally adult-friendly.
Zippers, be gone! A simple drawstring means no more yanking at a rusty ol’ zipper past your plastic sandwich bag to quick close your lunch box as you’re running out the door. An interior mesh pocket makes stashing icepacks and napkins a cinch, and really, who could say no to those puppy dog eyes?
You do you, Boo! There’s no denying Boo’s insane internet popularity, and what better way to pay homage to the pretty Pomeranian than carry around a lunch tin with his lovable face plastered on either side? Pink, pale blue, pop culture—it gets the job done in the trendiest way possible, and we personally think you could rock this lunch tin as a pencil box, too.
We’re all ears for this insanely adorable lunch pail that features a super-handy extra compartment at the bottom ideal for stowing ice packs and condensation-prone snacks, which means no more soggy bread, AKA the bane of every sack lunch.
Look at that face! We secretly wish Delancey Doggie were real, but for now, we’ll settle for taking her to school in lunch sack form. Made from non-toxic polyester, Delancey has the softest neoprene handle that makes toting her to school easy-breezy, and a special place for her owner to write his name.
