BACK-TO-SCHOOL IS HARDCORE, RIGHT? WHETHER YOUR LITTLE IS IN PRE-, K-, OR IS MOVING ON UP THE SCHOOL CHAIN, IT'S HARD TO SAY BYE BYE TO SUMMER SNUGGLING AND HELLO TO TOP-OF-YOUR-GAME PARENTING. HERE'S OUR LIST OF THE KID-KEWLEST PRODUCTS WE CAN FIND (AND A COUPLE OF THROW-INS FOR MAMA) TO MAKE THEIR REAL LIFE RE-ENTRY EASIER.

Time to hit reset on our calendar (and closet!) Peep our favorite Fall finds for Mama and little one that will have you ready to say Sayonara to Summer.

Fall Finds

Roll up to the first week looking – ahem – too cool for school with a pair of Babiators shades to keep the sun out of their eyes, even if only at drop-off.

Because you already have plenty to worry about, let the personalized shopping stylists at Rockets of Awesome send new duds right to your door for their big day.

Whatever their mode of transportation, Penny Skateboards will have your kiddo skating into the new school year with confidence and style (and hopefully no bumps and bruises).

We’d be lying if we said we weren’t looking forward to using these just as much as our little ones. Swiss made by CW Pencil, these chic little pencils will help channel anyone’s creative energies.

What’s a first day without a stellar bag? Our friends at Minimode teamed up with State Bags to create the ultimate backpack that’ll keep the seemingly endless school supplies in one spot.

We all know a flashy pair of kicks are a must-have for VIP playground status. It’ll be hard to lose sight of them in a crowd with Golden Goose Super Star Glitter sneakers.

Because we know your kiddo isn’t the only one with a sweet tooth at the end of the day. Pick up a Mast Brothers bar (or 5) to satiate that after-school snack craving.

Because we’re personal proponents of Self Care in all shapes and forms, top of your glass and your evening with a Pear & Vanilla Sour from our friends at GOOP.
