27 Cutest Back-to-School Products You’ll Want to Snag for Yourself
You're going to want to order doubles of these adorable back-to-school products—one for the little one and one for you!
For a bright, stain-free year
Those colorful gel pens are a favorite of school-aged kids (and artsy adults) everywhere, but until now, they came with a stain hazard. These Crayola Washable Gel Pens can easily be removed from clothes, furniture (ahem, children), or just about anywhere else a creative writer may find themselves spreading ink.
For a rose golden year ahead
Nothing will beat back-to-school stress quite like the addition of a truly magical rose gold backpack from Quilted Koala. She'll be the coolest kid at school, and still have plenty of space for binders, folders, and books, as well as compartments for all the other necessary accessories. Find out genius swaps to save big on back-to-school shopping.
For always-delish lunches
Get your little one a very practical Built NY Insulated Lunch Bag. It's a hit for adult lunches, too, so you'll definitely want to get a pair.
Disposable cutlery you'll feel good about
With major restaurant chains scrapping disposable straws and cutlery, it looks like the world is finally moving in a more sustainable and eco-friendly direction. Help your little one simplify their lunch and still feel good about your environmental impact by packing totally compostable and biodegradable forks from Birchware.
A dose of good karma
Yes, there's more learning to do as a kid than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. Teach your little girl the value of giving back with a fashion-forward headband from Headbands of Hope. The brand gives a headband to a child battling cancer for every headband or other hair accessory purchased, and that's pretty beautiful.
Some cool refreshment
It's no secret that water bottles are trendy for just about every age and stage, but this super-cute Nalgene Chomp bottle is designed for little spill-prone hands, and near magically keeps everything neat, leak-proof, and hydrating through lunch, recess, and beyond. Find out the 14 back-to-school supplies that are a waste of your money.
You'll want these on your desk, too
These rainbow-colored Make No Mistake Markers by Ooly are every little artist's dream—one side colors, and the other side erases. Imagine, that? Erasable markers finally exist. We're assuming pigs will start flying soon, too.
For the least likely to tie their laces
There's always one running around with just too much to do and not enough time to commit to properly tying laces. Rather than standing in his way, let him zip off to the school bus with these very functional and sturdy slip-on sneakers by Plae.
