Special back to school keepsakes for every gift-giving occasion
In a little over a month, children will be packing their bags, preparing their books and laying out their uniforms ready for their return back to school. And while there are still plenty of days left to while away the summer holidays, before we know it, September will be here, bringing with it a new academic term.
So, whether you are heading back to school or you’re looking for a little good luck gift to give to someone special as they return to the learning environment, we’ve got a load of lovely goodies that are brilliant for back to school!
Whether you’re a witch, wizard or simply a muggle™ wishing your letter to Hogwarts would arrive, no trip to the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry would be complete without these essentials… Perfect for all fans of Harry Potter™, this Hogwarts™ Decorative Goblet is a spellbinding keepsake to proudly display on your desk or in your dorm room. Regardless of which house the Sorting Hat has declared you belong to – if you’re a Gryffindor™, Slytherin™, Hufflepuff™ or Ravenclaw™ – your house is represented on this beautiful collectors’ piece. Measuring 18cm and made from cast stone with a stainless-steel rim, you can show your school spirit with this elegant decorative goblet.
For aspiring witches and wizards looking for a little inspiration, how about having Professor Albus Dumbledore™, headmaster of Hogwarts™, watching over you while you work? This very wise wizard once said: “It’s our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Now, thanks to this adorable Dumbledore™ Charm Figurine presented in an on-trend Chibi style, you can remind yourself or someone special that while it’s important to work hard at school, what matters is the person we choose to be, rather than the grades we gain.
Perhaps a little bit of Disney magic is more up your street than Diagon Alley™ and the magic of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter™? If that’s the case, then you absolutely must check out this glasses case! Practically perfect in every way, this Mary Poppins piece from Enchanting Disney is ideal for safely storing glasses, or can be used to keep pens, pencils and other pieces of stationery stowed away too. With lovely tones of pinks, lilacs and pale blues, the hard shell with a soft interior lining means glasses and other goods can be easily transported to and from class, via the library, and everywhere else in between!
Finally, if you just want to remind yourself that you can do anything you turn your mind to, or to gift someone a special keepsake to give them a little boost of encouragement as they head back to school, then take a look at this You’re A Star figurine from Kloche. A sweet little wooden bear holds a big star in his arms, with the words You’re a star presented on the base of the piece. The whole figurine is encapsulated with a glass dome, creating a classic vintage style. A stunning piece with even sweeter sentiments, this keep sake will be cherished for years to come – not just this September when it’s time to head back to the classroom.
