Your child’s summer vacation is on its last leg and for some of the kids the schools have reopened already. For moms,it is the time to start waking up early for school bus *groans*, planning lunch menus, ironing school uniforms the night before and my favorite part *shopaholic alert ahead* –Shopping for back to school items. Even as a kid, to me the end of summer vacations meant buying fresh school stationery supplies, arranging a brand new bag and getting covers on all new notebooks according to the school list.

So as you prepare yourself and your kids for the school grind again, I am sharing with all of you my top 5 back to school items.

School Bags and Backpacks 

In our times the backpacks were mostly only in two colors blue and black. Usually when someone’s parent or relative used to come back from abroad they also used to bring a beautiful and unique school bag with them which quickly used to become the object of envy. But now the variety of school bags and backpacks available in India is just mindboggling. From your favorite cartoon character to personalised bags it is all available here. My favorite picks would be

Go Go Cupcake Bag Rs 1199/-
Chhota Bheem backpack Rs 799/-
Angry Birds Bag Rs 476/-

Pencil Boxes and Pouches

Gone are the days of simple metal boxes there is a lot of variety in pencil boxes too. You can opt for magnetic ones, some have in-built sharpeners and there are some even with lights in them. Check out my picksVividha Pencil Pouch Rs 149/-
