Packing your lunch in a bento box [1] is an efficient way to create a wholesome meal in a compact package. But if froggy faces and cute bunnies are a bit too kawaii for your office environment, we've rounded up 10 pretty yet grown-up containers that get your lunch from here to there without looking like you're headed for the school bus.

A red and white chrysanthemum motif brings this lacquered bento box [2] ($30) to life.

Pops of color on this stacked bento box [3] ($36) bring the sunshine inside at lunchtime.

The classic lunch pail gets an Asian update in this four-compartment stainless steel bento box [4] ($22).

A spray of cherry blossoms decorate this faux wood bento box [5] ($24) — but it's still dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

Complete with its own carrying tote, the Zojirushi Ms. Bento container [6] ($44) keeps cold foods cold and hot foods piping hot.

The fresh Spring brights of this two-tiered bento set [7] ($39) liven up your lunch.

This rustic wood bento box [8] ($21) is perfect for lunch alfresco!

The lemon-lime color scheme of this bento [9] ($15) won't leave a sour taste in your mouth. Just fill it with delicious lunches!

An interior sauce pot makes this BPA-free bento box [10] ($22) perfect for everything from salads to sushi.

Any old Tupperware can still look chic wrapped up in a pert cloth lunch carrier [11] ($21). We love the of-the-moment yellow and grey color scheme.
