Kids can be forgetful little things – even when they’re not so little. And sadly, many of a mom’s best-laid plans and set-ups can have the props knocked out of them because their student “forgot,” “misplaced,” or just plain lost something. But Things Remembered is always there to help save moms from digging through the school lost-and-found box by turning “back to school” into “back to cool” with these great items.
PERSONALIZATION: FUN FOR KIDS, LIFESAVER FOR YOU
When it comes to school items, personalization isn’t just cool – it’s incredibly practical. It not only helps keep kids from getting their items jumbled together and lost, but kids take a special pride in things emblazoned with their names; it makes those items that much more special.
Lockers and cubbyholes are great, but most students’ crucial tools for school are kept in their backpacks. And Things Remembered has a great line back-to-school packs that can keep students of all ages organized.
BRING A FRIEND WITH YOU
For younger kids, our Sidekick Backpacks let them bring a friend to school – like a colorful monkey, butterfly, or owl. These adorable, comfy packs are roomy enough to hold the supplies that kids will need, and have adjustable shoulder straps so they can fit your kids for more than one school year. And there’s plenty of room to embroider a student’s name in big, bold letters.
WE HAVE YOUR OLDER KIDS COVERED TOO
Older students probably won’t want to wear something with their name – or a smiling monkey – on their back when they roll into class. But Things Remembered has stylish backpacks available in stripes, dots, and solids. These have padded backs for the extra load of educations that older students have to haul back and forth. These packs can be personalized with initials, which teens love.
MAKE LUNCHTIME MORE FUN
At lunchtime, the cafeterias are a jumble of bags, wrappers, and lunch boxes, so personalizing these items is key. For little kids, our lined and insulated Lunch Pals are available in the same fun designs as our Sidekick Backpacks, so kids can have a matching set that really fits their personality.
HELP THEM KEEP IT COLD
But teen girls who love to make a fashion statement in the lunch room will love to have their initials on a smart and trendy BUILT NY Gourmet Getaway lunch tote. These functional, easy-to-carry bags can keep food warm or cold for up to four hours, and have a convenient zip-top closure so none of the treats get lost on the way to class. But these aren’t just for teens; moms have been known to love these stylish lunch bags, too, so it might be a good idea to order two!
KEEP THEM HYDRATED
Don’t sentence your student to a steady diet of the same old boring sandwiches. The Things Remembered Corkcicle® Canteen lets moms pack nine ounces of soup or any other hot beverage for kids’ lunches, and keep it hot for up to 12 hours. If your kid prefers to bring a cold drink to school, the Corkcicle keeps it cold for an amazing 25 hours! These reusable bottles come in five matte colors and three glossy colors, and can be engraved with a name or even a cool design!
DON’T FORGET YOUR KEYS!
One thing that is critical for kids to keep track of is keys. For latter-day latch-key kids or young drivers, it’s important not to lose track of these. And the Things Remembered Personalized Initial Key Chain makes a great back-to-school gift. Not only can you give them a big, bold, silver initial, you can also engrave a special message on the heart charm …
“Don’t forget your keys!” might be a good message!
