2. A One-and-Done Box for the Perfect Lunch

Whether for you or for your kids, Japanese bento boxes are the key to making enticing portable lunches. They're compact and organized, but have one downside: most don't keep food particularly hot or cold; if you want, say, a hot soup, you need to use a thermos, and then you need to pack cold items separately. Enter Omiebox, an insulated hot/cold lunch box with separate temperature zones, so you can prepare a lunch of lentil soup and kale salad—and both will stay at the temp you intended until lunchtime.
