Whether or not your kids are starting school next week (we’re on tenterhooks waiting for updates on the BC Teachers’ Dispute), they still need to be ready when the big day comes. To this end, we’ve tracked down some great new back to school finds, and we’ll be sharing more next week!
Herschel Survey (pictured above)
One of our favourites from the Herschel fall line is the Survey Kids, which comes in a range of designs from plaids to prints. It’s nice and small, which makes it perfect for little kids or bigger kids who tend to pack everything (and more!) when they head out for the day. Plus it’s a great bag for weekend excursions. Fully line, with air mesh straps, it’s sturdy and will hold up to pint-sized wear-and-tear. Of course your kid will be way hipper than you if they’re carrying a Herschel bag and you’re not. Unless you indulge too…
We’ve been S’well converts for awhile now. We love the true bottle shape of these sleek, reusable bottles, the range of sizes from 9 oz (perfect for kids) up to 25 oz (perfect for a bottle of wine), and the variety of bright colours. They’re BPA-free and made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel. And they’re double walled to keep drinks cold for 24 hours (and they don’t condensate) and hot for 12 – they’re one of the most effective thermos bottles we’ve tried, plus they’re vacuum sealed so no leaking! Contact Swell Bottle to find your nearest retailer as they don’t list retailers on their site.
We’re big Lunchbots fan around here and their new “Rounds” are no exception. These 8 oz 18/8 stainless steel containers have BPA-free, leak-proof (we tested them, they really are!) twist off lids that make them easy for little hands to get on and off. We love having a variety of bags and containers for packing lunches as you can’t put a square peg – or yogurt – into a round hole – or a baggie. Perfect for snacks, dips and more, these are a great new addition to your litterless lunch collection. Plus they go in the dishwasher and come in a fun selection of colours, which makes packing multiple lunches easier.
We say bring on fall and school! But in the meantime, enjoy the last days of summer.
