Best Lunch Bags for School, Work and Summer Fun

Trust me, I know it’s hard to think about going back to school when a lot of us just finished the school year within the last month. But, I promise I’m just going to interrupt your super summer fun for a few minutes to talk about Thirty-One’s annual thermal sale going on through July 31. We’ve got 8 of the COOLest thermals (see what I did there?) on sale and I’d love to tell you all about them and share how to get the most bang for your buck. For every $35 spent in July, you can get 1 of 8 thermals at a discount. You can also combine these customer specials with our weekly SALE-A-BRATION deals and now through July 18, you can get FREE SHIPPING on a $100+ retail order (a non-party order) at www.pink-bags.com.

Best Lunch Thermals for Kids

Lunch Buddy Thermal
Regular Price: $25
Sale Price: $10*
Dimensions: 9.25″H x 8.25″L x 4″D

This is my favorite thermal for little kids and the one that my 6.5 year old used every day in Kindergarten and is currently using at summer camp. She’s one of those kids that just wants PBJ every.single.day. There are two great solutions that work perfectly with this lunch box. The first is the Rubbermaid LunchBlox Flat Set. We put the sandwich and fruit in the larger container and every once in a while I surprise her with a small treat in the smallest container. We use the medium container for her afternoon snack in a separate snack pouch. In its place is an Honest Juice Box or Horizon Milk. The second solution is the Yumbox Panino Bento Box, which fits inside the Lunch Buddy with a bit of room to spare. There’s also plenty of room for napkins and a reusable fork. Note that the Lunch Buddy comes with a side pocket for a water bottle, the 12 oz. Thermos Funtainer fits perfectly. However, I prefer to keep Hallie’s bottle in her backpack.
It comes in 4 prints: Camo Crosshatch, Charcoal Crosshatch, Mermaid Lagoon, Dino Parade.

Off to Lunch Thermal
Regular Price: $30
Sale Price: $15*
Dimensions: 7.25″H x 8.5″L x 6″D

This thermal is super cute with its wrap-around design. It comes in 3 prints: Banyard Buddy, Grillin’ & Chillin’ and Off-Road Fun. This thermal works great with the Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit. Please note that this thermal cannot be embroidered. However, we do have matching ID tags that can be added for an additional $8.

Best Lunch Thermals for Teens & Adults

Around the Clock Thermal
Regular Price: $30
Sale Price: $15*
Dimensions: 8.75″H x 9.75″L x 6″D

This is my favorite thermal for teenagers and adults because there is plenty of room for ALL.THE.TUPPERWARE. You can easily fit 2-4 Tupperware containers in here depending on the size, along with a beverage. This is by far the most popular lunch thermal for men and teenage boys. It comes with a detachable crossbody strap and it comes in 6 prints: Camo Crosshatch, Charcoal Crosshatch, Dot Trio, Island Nights, Fun Flags and Scallop Stripe.

Lunch Break Thermal
Regular Price: $25
Sale Price: $10*
Dimensions: 8.5″H x 9″L x 6″D

This is another great choice for teenagers and adults. Girls and women seem to like it best. This is a tad smaller than the Around the Clock Thermal and has a rounded top and longer handles. In my very first Thirty-One order 6 years ago, I purchased this lunch bag and it’s still in perfect condition. Back then, I took the commuter rail into Boston for work and this was my go-to lunch thermal because I loved the longer straps. It was so nice to be able to wear it on my shoulder. It comes in 5 prints: Ink Blocks, Island Nights, Lollipop Stripe, Starlit Stripe and Tapestry Floral. There is also a limited edition of the Lunch Break Thermal with more sophisticated fabrics available for $15* on sale ($35 reg.).

Best Simple Lunch Thermal

Thermal Tote
Regular Price: $18
Sale Price: $10*
Dimensions: 9.5″H x 14.5″L (top opening), 9.5″L (at base) x 4.5″D

The Thermal Tote was our very first lunch thermal and is still one of our tried and true products. It has a simple tote shape and is a good choice for everyone in the family. It is taller and narrower than the other thermals and works well with standard size water bottles. This is our most popular thermal to gift to teachers, babysitters, coworkers and coaches. This also works well with the Lunchblox Sandwich Kit. It comes in 6 prints: Charcoal Crosshatch, Starlit Stripe, Cactus Cuties, Pinwheel Party, Purple Southwest Stripe and Green Cabana Stripe/Llama Rama.

Best Thermals for Babies & Toddlers

Cargo Clip-On Thermal
Regular Price: $38
Sale Price: $15*
Dimensions: 8″H (at top of bag), 10″H (top of zipper panel) x 12.5″L x 5.25″D

This thermal is a must-have for baby mamas. It’ll clip right onto your stroller or a car headrest and you can even wear it as a crossbody. If you have elderly relatives, this works well to clip to a walker too! It’s big enough to keep a few bottles, snacks and drinks cool while you’re on the go. It comes in 3 prints: Lollipop Stripe, Starlit Stripe and Swirls & Whirls.

Multi-Bottle Thermal
Regular Price: $30
Sale Price: N/A
Dimensions: 10.75″H x 7″L x 6″D

This thermal is not part of the July sale, but I think it’s a great product so I wanted to share. This is a must-have for babies and toddlers who go to daycare. I wish I had this when my daughter was a baby! It holds 4 – 6 baby bottles or frozen milk pouches… or 4 soda cans or beers for the grownups. The top compartment can holds snacks, pacifiers, toys…etc. But, it’s not just for babies. I have a friend who uses this at the pool every day with drinks and snacks. She loves it. It comes in 3 prints: Lollipop Stripe, Starlit Stripe and Swirls & Whirls.

Best Large Thermals

Picnic Thermal

If your family loves heading to the park for picnics or you have a job that requires you to eat several meals and snacks on-the-go, this thermal is for you. The best part is, it features our Leak Lock Lining which allows you to put ice directly into the thermal. It’ll keep your drinks and meals cold all day.
ATTENTION LADIES: This thermal can hold SIX bottles of wine! Say hello to your new best friend! This one also gets a lot of use in our house with our town’s weekly Summer Concert Series and bringing home pints from our favorite ice cream shop.

If you need even more space at the lake, pool or beach, this one is for you. This is also a great choice for keeping groceries cool in the hot car and bringing hot or cold dishes to BBQ.
