10 Lunch Boxes With No Disney Characters On Them

Browse any store during back-to-school season and you'll see that most lunch boxes for kids (some 95 percent?) are emblazoned with Disney or other cartoon characters on them. Maybe you're starting to reach peak level for all things Frozen? Or maybe you're just worried your kid will move on and, come November, refuse to carry anything with Elsa or Olaf on it. (Hey, it could happen!)

That's why we've rounded up 10 adorable lunch boxes — without Disney characters on them. And maybe, just maybe, your kid will agree to use it for more than just one school year. Here's hoping. Read it on The Kitchn

10 Awesome Farmhouse Finds from Magnolia

Texas-based husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines might be best known for their HGTV series, Fixer Upper — where they fix up decrepit old homes, always adding their signature farmhouse style — but among other projects they also own Magnolia Market, a store that sells wares that perfectly embody the couple's design aesthetic.

While we typically prefer our old, farmhouse-y finds to actually be old (and not faux old), we usually make exceptions for dining and entertaining stuff. And these items from Magnolia Market are all worth a second glance. Read it on The Kitchn

8 Best Beer Growlers on the Market

Craft beer used to be something only your weird brother-in-law was interested in, but over the past five years or so, its popularity has reached a fever pitch. Today, everyone knows the difference between a pilsner and an IPA. Local breweries are popping up all over the country and have replaced the typical bars as the cool place to hang out.

Access to craft beer is better than ever. You no longer have to trudge to a specialty market in search of something more adventurous than Blue Moon—your local grocery store now carries a dizzying array of craft selections that will make your father stand in the well-stocked aisles and ask, “Whatever happened to good, old-fashioned Budweiser?,” not knowing that half of the craft brews on the shelves he maligns are owned by Budweiser (sorry to ruin the narrative, Dad). Many stores have even put in draft lines specifically for craft beer fans to fill up their growlers; and of course, brewpubs and breweries do the same. It’s why your friends show up to parties with growlers full of craft beer instead of the case of Miller Lite they used to arrive with. Want to invest in your own growler so you can share your love of craft beer with other people (not your Dad, though)?  Check out our list of the 8 best growlers on the market to cart your precious beer around in.
