Does anyone else spend hours trawling through Etsy before bed, looking at the amazing things on there? Just me? Well, I stumbled upon some amazing Back to School items that I would like to share with you. Things to make that first day of school special, jazz up that first day picture or something to give your nervous little one a confidence boost.

Why Etsy?

Well, I think now, more than ever, is an important time to support small businesses. Since the outbreak, so many of them are struggling to keep afloat. Big companies and corporations have received huge loans from the government to help them survive the backlash of Coronavirus but that’s just not the case with a lot of small businesses. They need your help to keep going. Etsy is home to more than 2.1 million active sellers, a lot of these are small business owners or people trying to make a living from home.

Top Back to School Picks

First Day of School Board

£15 Free Delivery
From: Dancingflamingogifts

I love these! They’re reusable chalk boards so you can edit the details every year and see how your child changes as the years go by. You can personalise the name, the colour of the name and the colour of the bunting. This would really make the first day of school picture extra special, every year. If you know a little one starting school in September, or you want to start a new tradition, I highly recommend this! Click here to get yours!

Personalised First Day of School Photo Frame and Wooden Hangar

£5.97+ Free Delivery
From: WallfrogGraphics

Isn’t this adorable? I love the idea of a personalised hangar for their first ever school uniform. You can even choose the colour of the ribbon on the hangar to coordinate with their school uniform colours! It’s a keepsake you can treasure forever and is so personal! The photo frame is just as special with their name, date of first day and school engraved in the wood. The first day of school is such a precious memory so it deserves a special place.

First Day of School Bracelets

£6.00 Delivery: £1.50
From: BetsysDen

I would have loved one of these on my first day at middle school. I was so nervous to start fresh in a new school, with new people in a new town. It would have been so comforting to be able to look down at my wrist and be reminded that my parents support me. As a Mum, I love the idea that I can send my little one off into the unknown with a small token of my love to keep her confident. There’s a wide variety of cord colour options and you can also choose the bead you’d like!

Brave Button

£2.99 Delivery: £1.00
From: Vellamaes

Similar to the bracelets but these can easily be slipped into coat pockets or school bags. This Brave Button is ideal for kids that need a bit more of a boost or encouragement. For example, give them this token to take to school with them or use it as a reward for being brave after a tough day. Made of sustainably sourced wood, you can personalise it with your child’s name and colour of the rainbow!
