Does anyone else love Back-to-School season as much as we do? Fresh school supplies, blank notebook pages and new books! As we begin to plan and shop for our own kid’s school supplies, we wanted to share our fun literary finds with you. If your child is going off to school for the first time or headed away to college, there is something on this list for each of them.
Pens, Pencil Cases, and Notebooks
Pens and Pencils are traditionally the most boring of school supplies – but not these! Channel your inner Harry Potter with this feather pen. Or perhaps you are more interested in channeling your inner Tribute? This axe pen is fit for any Hunger Games Fan. Those of you interested in more traditional fairy tales – perhaps this pinocchio pencil would be of interest? I love this set of Alice in Wonderland pencils also.
What better place to store your new pens and pencils then in a cool literary pencil holder? Both The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Great Gatsby pouches come from the New York Public Library Store. I love that you can get a bookish item and support the library system at the same time!
Now that you have your writing implements, you need something to write in! For the little ones, can we suggest the Wonka bar notebook for your Roald Dahl Fan? Or perhaps one of these upcycled Dr. Suess notebooks would do the trick or this Little Prince notebook.
Backpacks, Lunch Boxes, and Accessories
You’ve got your basic school supplies, now you need a way to cart them around! How amazing is this Herschel Winnie the Pooh backpack? I own a number of their bags and they hold up so well! I love this book backpack for little kids too. Its so cheeky and fun!
For your older kids, we love this Game of Thrones backpack for your fantasy lover and this Mr. Darcy Tote for your Austenite. Why not get your Jane Austen fan this lunchbag too? We love this Curious George Lunch Box too!
Everyone needs something to protect their cellphone so why not make that book inspired too? From Catcher in the Rye to Anne of Green Gables, Chick Lit designs has adorable covers for any phone. I love the Advanced Potions iPad case they sell too. While we are on cool tech gear – check out Evie’s A Conjuring of Light laptop case? I know one or two teens who love this series!
Lastly, kids need hydration through out the day. A water bottle is the perfect bookish accessory – especially a Harry Potter one! For the older ones a little caffeine maybe in order – so this Suess mug maybe more appropriate. Besides – the sentiment is perfect for those about to graduate.
