Whether you’re heading on to campus, or just over to the kitchen table . . . keep your laptop protected on the journey with a cool case. We went for the pink velvet (of course). Shop now.

 

 

Looking for some new school kicks for your kids? Clarks have got you covered. Their back-to-school collection includes all sorts of styles – from patent pumps to tough trainers – and they’ve shared their top tips to measuring shoe sizes safely from home too! Shop now.

 

 

Tune in to those chill-study-beats with a pair of wireless earphones – like this set from Urbanista. Shop now.

We all know how important it is to protect yourself and others by wearing a mask, whether that be on your commute or when spending time in closed spaces. Why not jazz things up with a fun printed design like this one from Lazy Oaf? Shop now.

 

 

And you can’t forget a bottle of hand sanitiser too! We’re big fans of this one from Pai Skincare that smells super lovely – and, with every order they donate another bottle to an NHS frontline worker, care home, homeless charity or beauty bank. Shop now.
