Stationery, textbooks and a snack box – just a few of the many things that will be thrown into school backpacks. Invest in a sensible size and good quality to make sure it sees your child through the school year. If the weight of the bag is putting strain on your child, opt for one on wheels instead. With long school days and plenty of after-school activities, you'll need to find a clever lunchbox solution. Whether it's a compact cooler bag or a multi-storage snack box, the brighter, the better!

Make sure your child is always punctual for soccer practice or extra maths by getting them a watch. A hardy, water-resistant one is a good idea – especially for kids who are used to using their phones to check the time.
