It is August which means soon it will be back to school season! With many schools finally returning back to in-person after over a year, this school year will be especially different. And, chances are you probably know someone returning back. This week, we have compiled a list of 8 gift ideas to surprise your friends and family for back to school season.
1. Coffee Tumblr + Sleeves
Perfect for any teachers or students who love their cup of joe in the mornings, a coffee tumblr is an excellent gift for the start of the school year! You can even get them cute, custom sleeves to personalize their cups. Check out these cozy sleeves on an Etsy shop called The Little Yarnery!
2. A Cute Little Plant
Are they a little plant crazy? Or maybe they are starting to grow their collection as a new plant mother or father? If they are going away for school, a cute plant is a great gift idea! It will be the perfect addition to decorate their new place as well as remind them of you. Plants could also be great gifts for any teachers who can add them to their desk or office.
