Buy Stainless Steel Lunchbox in NYC? (Tiffin Carrier)

I don't know where I got this idea but I want to give my girlfriend her Valentine's Day gift in one of those stackable stainless steel lunchboxes. The plan is, put cool gifts in each layer, get it? Plus it's a cool storage or even serving containers.

I believe they're sometimes called "tiffin carriers" or "dabbas" b/c of the South Asian origin, but I'm pretty sure they're used in East Asia too (ever see Eat Drink Man Woman?).

Any idea where I can buy these in NYC? I know I can get them online but I don't want to deal with shipping and going to the post office.
