Eco Cool Reusable Lunchbags made from Upcycled T-shirts
Teenager gifts. Ahh, the joy and the pain of finding that perfect present for the teen in our life. As a mom, myself, I know that teen gifts can be challenging because we want them to be cool yet add value to our child’s life. And really, do they need another t-shirt?
What they do need are lunch bags, and customized ones at that.
Really, personalized lunch bags made from their favorite t-shirt is something that will blow them away and give them something they’d be delighted to tote to school as well.
Plus, you get to reuse t-shirts that may have outlived their style quotient but still hold a special place in your teenager’s life.
5 Ways Personalized Lunch Bags Make the Ultimate Teenager Gifts
They’re cool and are sorta pre-approved by your teen. It IS their t-shirt after all, right?!
They’re planet-friendly and your earth-lovin’ teens will be delighted they’re making a difference.
Carrying lunch in their own one-of-a-kind lunch bag is bound to amp up their cool quotient with friends.
They’re practical but NOT boring. Win!
Oh, and this may just be me, but getting one custom created doesn’t break the bank. So, score for the budget-savvy mom as well!
Lunch Ideas for Teenagers
So, you have the cool, customized lunch bags sorted but what do you put in them to make sure they keep your older kids healthy and happy too?
Here are a few quick ideas. We’ll cover more in upcoming posts, so stay tuned!
Whole wheat sandwiches with healthy, yummy, grown-up fillings. Think Vietnamese chicken instead of plain, roast chicken.
Healthier fast food, like whole wheat pitas with shredded lean meats and plenty of veggies, coupled with some yummy dips and relishes, like bean and corn salsa or black bean dips.
Fruity yogurt, smoothies in flasks or dips with crackers make for good sides.
Wholesome and attractive looking frittatas loaded with bell peppers and other veggies.
The Teen Health site by KidsHealth has a great collection of recipes for teens catering to food intolerance and vegetarians too.
