Back-to-school often means a shopping excursion specifically for, well, office supplies for kids. But too often, school supplies leave something to be desired. Boring composition notebooks, bland folders and run-of-the-mill markers probably run rampant at your local office supply store. After all, pencils and paper aren’t exactly beautiful food for the aesthetic soul — except when they are.
Get ready to actually get excited about school supply shopping, folks. Because we’ve rounded up the most insanely stylish and functional school supplies that just miiiight find their way out of your kid’s backpack and into your own office.
Plus, with the amount of homework assigned to kids these days, they’re going to be spending plenty of time at their desks, which are probably currently crowded with unattractive and uninviting supplies. And after all, haven’t pretty pens been proven to increase productivity or something? No? Whatever.
Ditch your trip to the big-box supply store, toss out those plain planners, and look no further, because you’re going to want every item on this list. I mean for your kids. This is all for your kids. Right.
