A list of essentials your kids will need for school.

Different year, same story. It’s only July but summer is quickly passing by and your mind is already thinking about back to school shopping. No need to worry, we got you covered! We have curated a back to school checklist so you don’t have to!


In their Pencil Case

This is where kids have the most fun! Shop quirky designs that will fit your kids' personality and make them stand out from their classmates (tag the items with their names so they don’t get lost). If you want to be cost efficient, check your kids’ supplies from previous years to see if you can use them again!

In their Bags

Finding the right backpack to carry everything around can be quite a mission, but it is one of the most important steps on this list. Make sure to select options that are sturdy and durable enough to handle an entire year of homework. You also want something functional, with enough pockets and compartments to organize everything they need, as well as something that won’t hurt their backs.

In their Lunch Bags 

Everybody knows of the importance of a well-balanced meal for their kids. A good way to make meal prepping efficient is to purchase a sizeable lunch kit with separate compartments. You can also add a stainless steel water bottle to make sure your kids stay hydrated.

And that's the basics! Send your child back to school with a backpack full of back to school essentials. Find all you need on FlipGive and earn cash for your team.
