It’s August which means that summer is coming to a close for many kids and back to school is on the brain. Today we teamed up with Stuck on You for our Junior Gizmo gal to do a Back to School Haul with cute, personalized, back-to-school things that we think you need to know about.
When our Junior Gizmo gal, Savannah, started to pick out her back to school items on the Stuck on You website, she was so excited by all the bright colors, fun designs, cool products and the fact that everything could have her name on it! Yep, kids love to have their names on things! Since Savannah is 12, it was no surprise that when she found the stationary section, she was hooked, and it made her even more excited for school to start. And if your child isn’t thrilled about going back to school, letting them pick out some new fun and personalized items may make things a little better!
Today, we want to share a few of our favorite options from Stuck on You that we think would make any kid’s back to school experience a good one.
Backpacks are always a big deal and Stuck on You has three colors to choose from (pink, blue and green) and 12 different designs to personalize it for your child. Savannah picked out a flamingo pink book bag with a cute “cloud friends girl” design that is a hot air balloon next to a fluffy cloud with her name on it.
One of her favorite things out of everything she picked out was the Personalized Weekly Desk Planner. Savannah hates to forget things so last year she made daily notes of to-dos on her bathroom mirror. She is super excited to replace that routine with a cute, pink, weekly desk planner that will keep her organized and not missing a thing.
Savannah also loves to draw and sketch in her free time so the Large Personalized Sketchbook just made sense for her this year. She picked out the adorable “donut sprinkles” design and has already started creating great art before school even starts!
To use with her sketch pad and weekly desk planner, Savannah loves her new personalized coloring pencils and markers. The sets of 12 colored pencils and 12 dual-sided, felt tip markers come with her name on each pencil, and are great for encouraging your child’s artistic ability.
One thing that is always on our back-to-school list every year are name labels. My two boys are notorious for losing everything. Did I tell you that my oldest boy lost his good jacket last year?? The one that I paid $60 for because I justified the purchase by telling myself that he would hand it down to his little brother in a couple years so I would get at least 4 years of wear out of it?? Yep, THAT jacket. He lost it within 2 months. Now, we label ALL THE THINGS.
Last, but certainly not least, in our back to school haul was a bento box for the littlest guy in the family. Last year he was the only one without a bento box for lunch, and with going into 3rd grade this year, we thought it was time to get him one. He picked out a fun blue, pirate-themed bento box with his name on it.
While those are just some of our favorite things, Stuck on You has SO many more personalized products to choose from including personalized duffel bags, library bags, camp items, water bottles, bag tags, hats, stationery, gifts, puzzles, onesies, muslin wraps, bibs and so much more.
To celebrate all these adorable back-to-school items, we are throwing a giveaway! This one is being held over on our Baby Gizmo YouTube Channel! Yep, you have to hop on over to YouTube, watch the video, and Savannah tells you how to enter to win a $100 Stuck on You Gift Card just in time for school!
Good luck with the giveaway and the upcoming back to school routines that is right around the corner!
