The Best Latinx Swag to Shop for Back to School

We saw the funniest TikTok the other day where a school teacher was joking (but serious) about the big box stores that are already stocking their aisles full of back-to-school gear. Yes, July may seem a bit early, but we’re in full back-to-school mode over here because it’s been a minute since we’ve had the chance. While parents are likely covered with the basics like pencils and crayons, back-to-school outfits, as well as the oh-so-convenient back-to-school bundles, we’re also thinking about having some fun with our purchases and adding a personal and purposeful touch.

Your kiddos are going to be wearing and using their school supplies constantly, so why not include some things that represent and celebrate who they are? We found some of the most inspiring, fun and positive Latinx school supplies including books, gear and accessories for your kid to rock as they head to school in a few weeks — conveniently right on Amazon. Shouting out your culture is not only self-affirming (it’s a great salute to who you are and where you came from), it also serves as a super motivating way to keep striving for your dreams. Dive into this roundup of the best Latinx back-to-school swag to shop, and let’s keep inspiring our young ones to be proud of their heritage and their goals!
