This year parents are having to make the very difficult decision of whether or not to send their children to school. There are pros and cons to both choices, and everyone’s situation is different. As a teacher, my hope is that the children who end up back in class are prepared for a school that looks just a little different. Here are some ideas of things that could make the transition to school just a little bit easier.
We’ve highlighted several personalized items here. The reason that we think that personalization is particularly important this year is that sharing books, pencils, masks can sadly be one of the fastest ways to spread germs. Even before the pandemic one of my greatest teacher horrors was watching a pencil that is still wet from being chewed up be shared between students.. it will now be even more important that this doesn’t happen!
So here we go!
1. Personalized Bookplate stickers
Girls Floral Bookplate Stickers
Bookplate stickers can help to prevent unnecessary sharing of school books (or can just be a cute addition to your child’s library!)
This particular bookplate sticker design features cute watercolor flowers, and has space for you to write your girls name in an elegant font. Find numerous other bookplate designs in our store!
2. Personalized Notebooks
Boys Cute Space Alien Notebook
Make sure your child isn’t accidentally picking up other children's notebooks by getting them one of their own that they love.
This cute school notebook design features a space alien cartoon, with a rocket ship, aliens, stars and moon, and can be personalized with your boys name. The perfect space themed gift!
3. Kids Clothing Labels
Kids Cute Rainbow Llama Clothing Labels
Clothing labels are a great way of keeping your child from losing those things you spent ages buying for them! These labels are waterproof and laundry safe.
This particular label design features a hand drawn rainbow llama cartoon doodle. This whimsical item also features a place for you to add your girl's first and last name.
4. Personalized Pencils
Boys Personalized Dinosaur Pattern Pencil
Now, everyone’s chewed up pencils can stay separate!
This cute kids pencil design features a blue dinosaur cartoon pattern, with a t-rex, stegosaurus, rainbows and jurassic jungle plants, can be customized with your boys name. The perfect dino jungle themed addition to your boys school supplies.
5. Lunch Box
Girls Cute Pink Sloth School Lunch Box
If your child is apprehensive about the start of school, a cute lunch box might be just what they need to make them feel a little better!

6. Customized Kids Watch
Boys Cute Farm Tractor Watch
Another great back-to-school ‘gift’ idea, this watch is perfect for little ones who are just starting to learn the time.
This cute design features hand-drawn red tractor cartoon on blue, with clear numbers, and can be personalized with your boy's name. Perfect for a farm and tractor loving kids first watch!
7. Cute Kids Masks
Kids Gender Neutral Rainbow Narwhal Mask
Sadly this year at the top of the list comes a mask. A great way to make sure your child wears their mask is to chose designs they love. Masks can be a pain to wear, and making it fun for children is vital to ensure they don’t just ditch their covering as soon as you or their teachers aren't looking!
This cool blue kids face mask features a cute rainbow narwhal pattern, with jellyfish, seaweed, starfish and shells. A cute, cheerful and colorful design!
