Time to get back to school. We’ve made a list of our top school supplies to make our children’s’ back-to-school experience easier & cooler, no matter what it looks like this year. We know as parents we want to make sure our children go back to school as safe as possible, so along with plenty of hand sanitizer and any face masks, we want them to have their own amazing lunch supplies. Take a look..
We love lunch, and we love to enjoy our lunch as fresh as it was in the fridge. If you’re looking for a stylish, functional lunchbox, then the Corkcicle Baldwin Boxer is ideal. The Baldwin Boxer is insulated, so is designed to keep your lunch cold for hours even when it is out of the fridge. The lunchbox is adaptable for many lunch styles, with a double-zipped main compartment, there is plenty of room to put sandwiches, and a pouch inside to pop snacks, fruit or leave a little note for your child. This lunchbox is also a great fashion accessory in a black camo print it’s understated design has a premium feel, and can be carried on the go whilst looking cool, with a front pocket to pop your keys in, and an adjustable strap over the top of the lunch bag for your Corkcicle Canteen or water bottle. Treat them to a little luxury at lunchtimes. Check it out here!
Whether you have a little eco warrior on your hands (which we love), or if you’re looking for a low cost, luxury feel lunchbox, then Hip have your solution with their new Hip with Purpose range. Each product in the Hip with Purpose range is made from recycled ocean bound plastic, so not only are you already helping the environment by ditching clingfilm and other single serve materials, you are helping clean up our oceans by using a product made from single-serve plastic that already exists on our planet – Win, Win! Hip’s Bento box is the modern, fashionable answer to bento boxes, in two beautiful colours, there is room for your sandwich on the bottom, and a dividable shelf to put your snacks on top of. Seal it closed with a multi-coloured elastic band for a bit of fun! Take a look...
Keep them Hydrated
Keeping children hydrated is so important at school, we know drinking water helps boost brain power, so what better way to help them stay hydrated than with a great water bottle? Our first pick is our Corkcicle Canteen in the 265ml size, perfect to pop in their lunchbox or schoolbag. The canteen is made from triple insulated stainless steel keeping drinks cold for 25+ hours, so great for in the classroom to always have a cold drink on hand. In a wide range of colours you can be sure they will find a colour they like.
Another favourite of ours is the bobble Carry Cap bottle, it’s low in price but great in quality. Bobble bottles filter water as you drink, so you can be sure you are putting the freshest, purest water into your body. When water passes through the carbon filter, chlorine and other unwanted tastes and odours are removed from your water. Perfect for on the sports field with the handy carry loop cap it stands out from the crowd, and is a great way to stay hydrated, and enjoy fresh tasting water. View the range here.
Our third choice would be a Hip Flask, no – Not the hip flasks you are thinking of! Hip have redesigned the traditional water bottle to be a flat design that easily fits in bags or lunchboxes, with a handy carry loop they are also great to carry on the go and show off. Hip bottles are 650ml, so a great choice to keep hydrated all day and are lightweight and leak-proof, no need to worry about spills in bags. Each colour has a different textured sleeve, and with the detachable carry loop you can attach this to their bag if there isn’t enough room inside! Hip, Hip, Hooray.
We know how hard to work to make their lunchtimes as varied and tasty as possible, so make sure you send them with everything they need to enjoy them – Don’t forget their cutlery. Our Hip cutlery set is a must have for every lunchbox, with all three utensils (knife, fork and spoon), in a handy carry case, you can send them off clean and fresh ready to be used and get them back with the dirt all in one place ready for the dishwasher. Plus, they are made from ocean bound plastic, single serve plastic that we have recycled to make new and exciting products from – No more disposable cutlery!
Perfect for lunchtimes or at home, Hip CleanStraw is the reusable straw children (and adults) love. The only reusable straw that opens for easy thorough cleaning, and zips close for soft sipping, so you can be sure the straw is clean of all germs! Hip Cleanstraw is great for putting in bags on the go, it comes in a handy case so you can tuck your straw away from any dirt in your bag, and after using it, if it is still wet you can tuck away without worrying about getting anything wet!
