Bento Box

 

Bento Box (Randyjw; June 24, 2016)

 

I like classy

I like kitschy

I like ones that

look like kitties

 

I like shiny

Do you, too?

Which one is the

One for you?

 

How to rate?

Selection varies

Is this date?

Or:

One You’ll Marry!?


 

Bento boxes are becoming all the rage beyond their origin in Japan. Long a staple in Japanese tradition, they’re also way more interesting conversation-starters than plain, ‘ole see-through plastic containers. They can be single- or multi-tiered, and make great take-along packing totes for your picnic or worklunch. Additionally, they make nice gifts to present to that esteemed colleague, mentor, friend, or co-worker, and are a proverbial gift for the person who has everything, or the hard to select for. They make an artistic statement, and are both thoughtful and usually appropriate as a gift for that special someone.

 

Do you know of someone special you’d like to send or give a token of appreciation to? Thinking of ideas for a graduation gift, birthday gift, or holiday gift? Then, consider a bento box; it’s a practical and considerate item to present to someone appreciated in your life.

 

I found a few cool ones at these two sites on the web: japancentre.com, and bentoandco.com (Bento&Co.). I put together a little collage from each company to give you an idea of the variety and pricing of these unique gift ideas. Hope it inspires!

  1. It’s the thought that counts– I wouldn’t want you to go out in the fields and get all bit up, yet again! It’s okay. I still haven’t tried your onigiri rice yet, so don’t feel bad…
