Back to School Gift Guide
When you close your eyes and think about September, what do you see? For us, it’s fresh empty notebooks, beautifully wrapped textbooks and a backpack that hasn’t been stained yet. And we’re not alone. January First may be the official start of the year, but for many of us – even those who haven’t seen a classroom for many years – it’s the smell of No. 2 pencils that signifies a fresh beginning. And have we ever needed a fresh beginning more than fall 2020? We think not.
That’s why we curated this gift-guide for both the young and the young-at-heart, whether you’re going to college, studying from the comfort of your living room (hopefully not your couch) or working from your home office. You’ll find gifts that will help you sit upright and take care of your posture while working or studying, gifts that will help you create a more ergonomic environment, gifts that will add fun to your workouts, stretch your mind or simply dress up your tech. Happy back to school!
