Most students are currently enjoying some well-deserved time off, but they’ll be returning to the classroom before you know it. And as August draws closer, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school season. One big opportunity you can take advantage of right now: branded back-to-school kits. They’re a great way to set students up for a successful year, and we’ve got five must-have items every kit should contain.
A Stylish Branded Backpack
Every student needs one. Whether they’re carrying their books to class or packing clothes for a weekend away, you can be sure they’ll use it every day.
Our Top Pick: Trek 15” Computer Backpack
Proof that style and quality don’t have to break the budget. The Trek features a large, zippered U-shaped opening and a 15” laptop sleeve. It also includes a padded back and adjustable straps for comfy carrying.
Notebooks Are Popular Again
Taking notes by hand is linked to improved memory and retention of the subject matter (Sage). That’s why it’s important for every student to have a notebook and a pen handy in the classroom. Add your custom logo for the perfect branding opportunity.
Our Top Pick: 5.5” x 8.5” Ambassador Bound JournalBook
A hard-bound branded notebook with built-in, color-matched elastic closure and an expandable accordion pocket for storing small items. It includes 80 sheets of cream lined paper and is available in 11 colors.
Can’t Miss With Branded Drinkware
Drinking straight from the fountain is a thing of the past. In the new normal, almost everyone brings their drinks from home, so an insulated drinkware piece will be put to good use.
Our Top Pick: Thor Copper Vacuum Insulated Bottle
Copper vacuum insulation keeps drinks cold for 48 hours or hot for 12. The spill-resistant lid comes with a hand loop for carrying, and the wide opening makes it easy to fill or add ice cubes. The double-wall construction prevents condensation, and the on-trend powder-spray finish makes it extra durable.
Cozy Fleece All Day
Comfort is key when it comes to students’ wardrobe choices. That’s why a super-soft fleece hoody makes a great addition to any back-to-school kit. Decorate it with their school’s emblem and let them show off that school spirit.
Our Top Pick: Cypress Fleece Zip Hoody
A classic look that never goes out of style. The Cypress comes in 10 awesome colors, and it’s made with our Impossibly Soft Fleece, so they’ll never want to take it off.
Let’s Do Lunch
Bringing food from home is the new normal, so a branded lunch box is a no-brainer. Add this branded retro tin lunch box to your kit for a gift they’ll use all the time.
Our Top Pick: Throwback Tin Lunch Box
