Best Buys for Back-to-School season

You don’t have to be a student or a parent to get those back-to-school vibes at this time of year. The shops are full of new products labelled with ‘back to school’ offers, so there’s sure to be something to tempt you. Whether you’re looking for a new water bottle, some fancy new stationery, or a lovely big bag to keep all your bits and pieces in, we’ve put together some of our best back-to-school shopping picks to help you start September in style!


Best Lunchbox:

Do you like to take a variety of different foods for lunch, and end up with them in several containers so they don’t spill onto each other? Behold the lunchbox of your dreams! The Yumbox Panino is a leakproof multi-compartment box in which every section is fully sealed from each other. Want to put your hummus next to your yoghurt, your carrot sticks next to your chocolate digestives? Knock yourself out!


Best Water Bottle:

We all know the importance of staying hydrated, and most of us are now becoming more aware of how much carbon the average bottle of mineral water adds to the environment. This means only one thing – you need a reusable bottle! If you want to be the coolest kid in class then look no further than the HidrateSpark stainless steel Bluetooth smart water bottle. Yes, Bluetooth smart water bottle! It syncs to your smartphone or smartwatch to measure your activity and adjust your water intake. Wait for it… IT GLOWS when it’s time to drink more water! What’s not to love?


Best Bag:

Now you might think it’s not possible to recommend one bag for everyone? Think again, with the Eastpack Out of Office backpack that comes in a style to suit anyone. Padded for comfort and containing a range of pockets including a laptop sleeve, whether you’re an iron grey or a pixel red fan, this is the bag for you.


Best Notebook:

A notebook is just a notebook right? Wrong! Not all notebooks are created equal, and the number one thing that you, my friend, need from a notebook is for it to lay flat. No more angry creasing of the spine, or contorting your posture to hold both pages open with one arm, get yourself a Mark and Fold notebook which comes in dotted, lined and plain page versions and is made from recycled coffee cups! Eco-friendly and practical, we love it!
