packed lunch ideas from lunchboxesetc.co.uk

We've started adding a few of our favourite packed lunch ideas to the new lunchboxesetc.co.uk website.  Our first recipe is for a thick and warming pea and ham soup.  This is a beautiful recipe which is brilliant as a hot lunch at this time time of year. Our food flasks are perfect for taking soups and stews to work or school for a hot packed lunch.  Something like the Thermos Stainless King food flask has a wide mouth opening so you can eat directly from the flask and even comes with its own fold away spoon:
it also looks great and is extremely hardwearing with its all stainless steel construction.

We'll be adding more recipes over the next few weeks so keep checking back if you are in need of a little packed lunch inspiration!

Back to school with lunchboxesetc!

Our favourite soft lunchbags from crocodile creek are back in stock just in time for the start of the new school year.  They are beautifully illustrated and have a degree of insulation to keep a packed lunch chilled.  The steel drinks bottles to match are equally cool and extremely hard wearing!

more personalised lunchbox designs arriving in the nick of time for back to school!

We love our personalised lunchboxes!  They are made in the UK from food grade plastic and are the ultimate in hardwearing easy to clean lunchboxes.  You can choose to have your own message or photo (or a scanned design of your own creation) or use one of our designs and add a name or message.

At only GBP11.99 they are a bargain as well!  We have introduced some new simple but striking cartoon animal designs this month just in time for the start of the new school year.  You can see the photo's below:

This cartoon giraffe lunchbox is cool, but I think I prefer the cartoon rhino lunchbox
Either way you can choose from these designs and lots more personalised lunchboxes at http://www.lunchboxesetc.co.uk/.

We are proud to announce 5 new wild animal lunchbox designs in time for this year's back to school period.  You can choose from elephant, leopard, cheetah, rhino and lion lunchboxes and they look just great in the leaf green lunchbox colour:

National flag lunchboxes have arrived




With all the talk about scottish independence since the results of the elections to the Scottish parliament we thought it would be nice to honour the upsurge in nationalist pride by producing some patriotic flag lunchboxes. Priced at £8.99 each and with scottish, welsh and union jack flags to choose from we think any nationalist would be proud to take their packed lunch to school or work in one of these!
