When kids put together their Christmas gift lists, they don’t always think of putting notebooks, pencils and other school supplies on the list. But, if you remember back to when they had to shop for back-to-school items, most kids couldn’t WAIT to stock up on supply list. Even though your kids might not ask for school stuff, they still make great gifts. But they also make great mid-year purchases. Here are 5 reasons why school supplies make great winter break gifts:
- If your child loves to write, then it’s a no-brainer to get them some cool writing gifts;
- By this time of year, most new writers/readers have started to increase their fluency and frequency in school. Celebrate their progress with some fun supplies to help them practice at home;
- For kids who just had final exams before break or if they start a new semester after the holiday, it’s fun to start fresh with crisp new supplies;
- Kids’ interests change rather frequently; that notebook and pencil case they loved in September might be “so yesterday;”
- Some kids might need a jump start to their motivation (don’t we all!). New supplies are a great way to start out fresh for 2017.
Below are 5 school gifts that we thought were pretty cool, and I bet your kids will too!
WAFF Mozaika Book: If your kids love playing with Legos, they’ll love this notebook! The WAFF Mozaika Book comes with 2 clips on the side that can be used to customize the book and keep it closed. The books also come with 120 decorative colored pegs that can be placed anywhere on the cover.
Printed Notebook, 3 Pack – Aqua and No. 2 Pencils – Aqua, Yoobi: My eldest loves writing and gets excited about notebooks whenever we’re out shopping. She also loves different tones of blue. This is the perfect combo of two of her favorite things!
3D Erasers – Animal and Food Assorted and Pretzel Erasers, Yoobi: I don’t know about your Fancy Girls, but my middle one is all about Shopkins and really any little figurines. These erasers are both practical and playful! And the pretzels are just so fun!
get it together pencil pouch – holographic, bando: Just in case you didn’t know, holographic/iridescent fabric is super trendy right now. The futuristic look has been in for a few years now. Switch up that current pencil case that has pencil marks all over with this shiny new one!
2017 Be Yo Boxed Calendar, Jet.com: You can’t start a new year without a calendar. And what’s better than one that provides daily inspiration as well. Kids need early and often reminders to stay true to themselves. It’s not always easy as they get older, and that’s why it’s even more important to give them words of wisdom in the form of something they’ll look at every day.
