Back to School Supplies
Back to school means a lot of things—anxiety, excitement, first-day-jitters—but certainly the most anticipated part of the new academic year is the school supplies shopping.
Whether you’re in middle school, high school, or well into college, new gear means a new you. Start the semester off right with fresh, one-of-a-kind supplies.
There are a few things every student should have: bookmarks, mugs, reusable water bottles. And sure, you could go to your nearest office supply store and pick up the same old things. Or you can peruse our unique selection and find something a little more magical.
Frida Kahlo Mug by Unemployed Philosophers Guild — Inspire your morning routine with this lovely Frida Kahlo mug. It’s the perfect kitchenware for latte mornings, tea afternoons, and black coffee all-nighters. Frida’s noble face will be there to comfort you through all of those long papers.
If you’re going to lug around a backpack full of books, you might as well make it your own and personalize it with accessories. Keychains, stickers, enamel pins, and patches are all great low-cost ways to spiff up your usual luggage. Bonus—a cute pin can be a great conversation starter with your new classmates!
Vincent van Gogh Enamel Pin Set by Unemployed Philosophers Guild — Featuring two pins in one pack, one of them is a portrait of van Gogh with his signature expression and ginger hair; the other pin is (of course) in reference to one of the artist’s most defining life events. A very fitting accessory to your first art history class of the year.
Art classes, art school, or art project: it’s always a good idea to keep a few creative supplies in your bag. Inspiration can strike at any moment, so you don’t want to be caught empty-handed. And even if you don’t fancy yourself an artist yet, school is a place to learn, so maybe this year you can start practicing.
Viviva Colorsheets by Viviva Colorsheets — As portable as a cell phone, this assortment of 16 transparent watercolors is packaged like a small booklet. To get started, you simply have to run a wet brush over the color. With this nifty product, you can go on spur-of-the-moment creative ventures all over campus and beyond.
Flower Color Pencils (Set of 5) by Trinus — Jot your notes down with one of these magic pencils and your paper will surely be the envy of the classroom. Even when it’s time to sharpen, the pencil shavings from this set will look like cross-sections of Bellflowers, evergreens, dandelions, red plums, and cherry blossoms. Your messy desk will be a work of art.
We hope you found some quirky supplies to inspire your new academic year!
