Going back to school in September always comes around quick! And even quicker for us Scots, who went back last month.
For some, it's an exciting time -- a fresh start, a new school year, and a chance to start again. For others, it can be a flurry of activity, anxiety, and getting the kids ready for new challenges (not to mention ourselves!).
We've put together some of our favourite organisers, planners, notepads, bags, and accessories to help ease you in and get you excited for the back to school season.
Keep on top of everyone's new schedules with our Family Weekly Calendar Notepad. This is a great organiser for mums, and can be personalised with the names of the family, or wording of your choice. Each page tears off neatly, so each week you can start afresh. Super handy to have in the kitchen to look over each morning!
Getting children ready for school in the mornings can be tough. Getting them excited can, sometimes, be even tougher. We have a lovely Personalised Tote Bag, great for getting books and kit ready the night before.
Encourage older children to organise themselves with their very own to do list for all their handy reminders. We have a wide selection, of course, but this Colourful To Do List has proven really popular over the summer!
For children who love their sports classes, our Personalised Water Bottles are a great addition to the daily routine. They're really robust, and are great for soccer practice or rugby coaching.
Let's not forget teachers -- so valuable to our kids' education and development. Our 'From The Desk Of' Notepads are a great way to make writing notes to children, parents and colleagues much easier.
We also have 'For The Desk Of' mugs and water bottles to keep you refreshed throughout the day. Our travel mugs are particularly handy for the classroom -- the tight-fitting silicone lids prevent spillages!
Our new teachers' tote bags are proving popular. Because they're strong and sturdy, they're great for carrying books and marking to and from the classroom.
Don't forget to check out our full back to school collection. And from all at XOXO Stationery, we wish you a fabulous autumn, and we hope you enjoy the back to school feeling!
