Back to School Shop

My little girl is set to start big school this September and so I have been hunting around for the best back to school accessories. Here are my top picks as the school gates open. And for all the kids starting a new nursery, or school, good luck from me!




Drinks, snacks and lunchtime ~

The ultimate back to school reusable water bottle, is this stylish BlaFre stainless steel bottle. I slightly want one too Stainless Steel Bottle Green & Stainless Steel Bottle White Drinking spout, sold separately Water Spout Green & Water Spout White

A stacking lunchbox, I think this works well for snacks too

The space saving design of this lunchbox is brilliant! Really clever, kids will love the compartments to keep all their snacks/ lunches in order

For the kid who loves tractors and trucks, this mini tractor lunch box, with divider is perfect & I also like the singing bird lunch box in red

The skip and hop ranges arte a favourite of ours and I loved this striking ladybird lunch box and bumble bee lunchbox

Finally for warm foods how about these fun thermos designs with clip on forks: owl thermos and ladybird thermos


Backpacks & Rucksacks ~

The cutest backpack out there - this unisex dinosaur print bag has a neutral base, so will match most coats and outfits. It also comes with a matching water bottle. There is nothing better than coordinated accessories!

Cute and cool, this rucksack would be a huge hit with my daughter who loves cats. Why not opt for a chic cat design… you might even want to borrow this one too (just saying)

If you prefer personalised then these two animal bags are pretty and practical: lion rucksack & penguin rucksack

I love these rucksacks, for nursery, as they come in a mini size (not too heavy to carry). They are made from a wax fabric, which lasts really well (even with heavy use)! Little Birds RuckSack & Soldiers RuckSack & Aeroplanes RuckSack & Mini Flowers RuckSack

And finally for any Peppa Pig fans, Hunter has just launched a Peppa Pig range. With wellies for jumping in muddy puddles and the cutest backpacks: Blue BackPack & Pink BackPack Any kid with this backpack will be the envy of their class!


The best shoe destinations ~

I’ve struggled to find good school shoes, but these shops were your top picks recommended to me through the feed. I will know for next year!


Reusable bottle labels ~

These ingenious bottle labels, are from Labelistas an ingenious way of making sure water bottles stay labelled and they are dish-washer proof too!


Scooter Accessories ~

If you can scooter to nursery, or school, than these scooter bags look great. I love the retro rocket design and dinosaur design. One less thing to carry and useful for weekends too.
