Can you believe that it’s almost the end of the school year? We can’t!
If you’re keen to get organised and prepared for the Autumn term to save yourself the stress of last minute shopping during the summer holidays, we’ve got you covered.
It can be so hard to find unique, cool school essentials. When we went around the shops, a lot of it felt so generic and boring, and our children were pretty uninterested. We LOVE things with a bit of personality and ‘sparkle’, so when we came across Redbubble*, we just knew we’d found something special. As we know so many of our followers love quirky things for their children, we HAD to share what we’d spotted with you all.
As the world’s largest marketplace for over 1 million independent artists, Redbubble enables artists to profit from their creativity. Something we absolutely applaud as a small independent (start from the dining room) business ourselves.

Check out these cool metal water bottles. They are made from stainless steel and are a perfect size as they hold 20 oz when full. They also come with a leak proof cap for peace of mind. There are literally 1000s of designs to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice. We couldn’t get enough of the pizza print designed by artist carabara who is “inspired by places flowers and especially food”. Works for us!
These pencil cases are awesome! The eye-catching colours and prints are mega fun, your child would be the coolest kid in their class with one of these great pencil cases. They would also make fab make up or coin pouches. Super versatile and so much fun.

We LOVED everything we spotted over at Redbubble – it really is one of the best places to go for unique school essentials, without a doubt. If you’re bored of the same old colours and patterns, or if your child is fed up of their peers having the same things as them causing mix-ups at school, you NEED to check out Redbubble. Such an amazing concept and you can feel good knowing that you are supporting independent artists!
