Personalised Back-to-School Essentials for Parents, Toddlers & Teens

How is it nearly the end of the kids’ summer holidays already? Seriously! Dare we say it, it’ll be Christmas before we know it. But, before we get too ahead of ourselves, first thing’s first – back-to-school essentials for the first day of term.

School shoes? Check. Backpack? Check. Uniforms? Of course! OK, so you’re nearly there. There’ll be no last minute panics about what your little one will be wearing on the first day of school. But, what about some of the other ‘stuff’?

Personalised Back-to-School Essentials

Here are some back to school essentials we’ve handpicked for you:

Personalised Notebooks

Who wouldn’t want their little boy or girl to be the coolest kid in the class? With a Personalised Notebook, they’ll be the envy of their mates and teachers alike. If nothing else, it might even make writing notes and doing homework a little less mundane!

Water Bottles

Staying hydrated is key to keeping concentration levels at a maximum. Children need up to two litres of life’s elixir every single day. One of our Personalised Water Bottles will help to keep your children hydrated whilst at school – and the leak-proof lid will ensure there are no spillages in their school bags!

A reusable, Personalised Water Bottle is better for the planet, too – something you can even put a spin on to give the kids your very own little science lesson, maybe?


Photo Keyrings

The wrong book bag or backpack being brought home by children is a common occurrence for a lot of parents. One way to stop your little one from picking up the wrong backpack from the class cloak room is to attach a Photo Keyring to it, so they know it’s theirs. You can even add their name using a text overlay!



From parents evenings to school plays, keep key dates in a Personalised Calendar to make sure you never miss an important appointment. Customise each meaningful milestone with some of your favourite photos, too!

Making Summer Memories into Gifts

As part of our #WhereverLifeTakesYou summer campaign, Mum and author of the To Become Mum blog, Kelly, blogged about turning summer memories into gifts for her little boy:

“I have been posting highlights from our summer holidays so far on my Instagram (there’s a ‘highlight’ just for our #46daysofsummer pics) and my plan is to either make some photo prints or a photo gift (#gifted) using the Truprint app at the end of our adventures to make something special for Ethan to remember this time by.” – Kelly (To Become Mum)
