10 Aug Back to School Cool – School-Ready Promotional Gift Ideas
You got it, it’s that time of year, and this time it’s looking like the kids really are going back! With kids going back to in-person learning for the first time for many in quite some time, it will be important to make sure the adjustment goes as smooth as possible and there is some sort of comfort and preparedness that the students feel! Help them get ready to face the new school year with a few of our favourite back to school swag items.
Comfort and Stability
As difficult of a transition as it was for kids to go from in-class to remote learning, it’s going to be just as much of an adjustment from going from remote to in-class learning. Let’s consider providing something that evokes a sense of comfort and stability for this new school year. They might have a hard time readjusting to in-person routines and learning, but that’s okay! Provide younger students with a plush animal or teddy bear with your logo, so they can have a comfort buddy when they feel scared or overwhelmed. Perhaps consider a journal or stress reliever for older students to encourage journaling, and healthy outlets for overwhelm! Help their creative side grow with some anti-stress colouring!
Be prepared with wonderful stationary kits, perfect for all of your classroom essentials: pencil, pen, eraser, sharpener and ruler! We’ve got many combinations for school supplies, as well as wonderful eco-conscious options. We also have kits with essential school supplies as well as personal care items like hand wipes, sanitizers, and masks to make sure everyone is safe upon return! Brand your logo or back to school message on the items for maximum impact throughout the year. Recipients will be sure to keep this handy at their desk at school, and as a great kit to have at home, providing maximum brand exposure.
Backpacks are where it’s at, ya’ll! When back to school time came around, my favourite thing was always getting a backpack. Gift backpacks with your branding that will wow students when they get them! From Hershel, to Jansport, recycled eco options, and everything in between, backpacks are an amazing item to have on hand for back-to-school gifts, that will leave a lasting impression all year long. Backpacks are a higher value item that people will appreciate and continue to use time and time again, and are well worth the investment.
Back to School Apparel
And of course, you do NOT want to miss out on providing some sweet back to school apparel. Whether it’s custom knit socks, or varsity apparel, we’ve got stylish options that are sure to wow even the trend setters! Customize with your school or branding, and you’ll outfit everyone in back to school cool.
Let’s make this a super positive experience for everyone, as we all adjust back to in-person learning, and help grease the wheels with some fun, useful, and creative back to school swag!
