My grandpa was a construction worker and I remember him coming home after his long days with his beautifully dented lunchbox, similar to the one below, and Stanley thermos, much like the one pictured below that.
For my bf's birthday this past year, I asked my grandma and grandpa to root out the old thermos and give it to my man, and they did! It now sits proudly atop our fridge, but I am hoping he will use it for his new job sooner or later. My grandpa said he ran over it with his truck at least once, but it still survived! They don't make 'em like they used to, that's for sure. It's a little piece of family history in our home.
