Can you believe it? The summer holidays just flew by and now it’s time to gear up for Back-to-School season! Whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro at this, getting ready for the start of the new school year can be both exciting and overwhelming.

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back with some amazing finds from our favourite online store, Mumzworld. They’ve got everything you need to get your kids all set for the new school year. From the trendiest school supplies to the coolest backpacks, we’re going to make sure this school year is one for the books. 

And here’s some great news for all our lovely British Mums out there: You can enjoy an exclusive 10% discount on your order at Mumzworld by using the code LOVEBM. 

1. The School Bag

Arguably one of the most exciting purchases, we adore the SkipHop range with cute animal characters like dinosaurs, ladybirds, hedgehogs, bees, rockets, you name it. These bags have great features like insulated snack pouches, roomy compartments and adjustable straps for comfort.

For older girls the Madpax range is great, with handy organisers and enough room for a laptop or tablet inside. Choose from one of the many vibrant designs they offer. And, for older boys they’ve got Flomo bags which are lightweight but can hold a ton of stuff! Plus, they come in a variety of colours and styles.

2. The Lunchbox

No more simple foil-wrapped sandwiches! Lunchboxes must meet strict criteria these days. Our top pick: Bentgo! They come in various colours and designs, with five compartments for fruit, veg, sandwiches, dip, and dessert. For mid-morning snacks, we love the Stephen Joseph range – it even has a built-in ice pack to keep those British strawberries fresh until 9:30am!                                                                                                                                             

3. The Water Bottle

We have tried countless water bottles over the years – we could write a book about it! But what truly matters to us is that they hold water and don’t leak. No more soggy school bags, please! Based on our extensive testing, we highly recommend any from the CamelBak range. Their flip, bite, and sip valve is perfect for kids of all ages, and guess what? They’re dishwasher-proof too – yay!

4. The Name Label

Save your precious time and get a pack of 74 personalised labels from Essmak. Use their large labels on food containers and water bottles, their tiny labels fit perfectly on pencils and markers, while the shoe labels are perfect for PE and school shoes and outdoor gear. 

5. The Sanitiser 

If you’re forever losing your hand sanitiser then the Dettol Anti-Bacterial Skin Care Hand Sanitiser is perfect to attach to school or lunch bags.

6. The Stationary 

Oh, the nostalgia of our stationary hauls back in the day! Now you can get it all in one click with this all-in-one pack from Maped.

7. The Pencil Case

Next, get a pencil case and fill it to the brim with that new stationary! For younger kids, there are fantastic character pencil cases, but we couldn’t resist Trixie, perfect for older children with more stuff to store.

8. The Snacks

Ever notice how kids love telling us what they ate at school, even though we are the one who packed their lunchboxes?  Mumzworld has a fantastic snack selection, from crisps and biscuits to healthier options. Our favourite?  Bear Fruit Rolls– 100% fruit in apple, strawberry, mango, and raspberry flavours, individually wrapped and perfect for lunchboxes! 

9. The Shoes

Got the uniform but still need shoes? Avoid the store-hopping stress with bored kids in tow! Buy online and try on at home. Mumzworld now stocks Clarks, a long-time favourite among British Mums for their quality and durability – yay! Choose from various styles with a no quibble returns policy! 

10. The Travel Mug

Back to school means back to school runs and a cup of coffee to go. Our fave is the Kambukka – Olympus Switch Lid Coffee & Tea Mug. It keeps drinks hot for 6 hours, cold for 11 hours, with a dishwasher-safe lid!

Check out Mumzworld’s ‘Back to School’ section on their website or the Mumzworld App for awesome savings! If you’re in a hurry, use the ‘Yalla’ option for same-day delivery on many products – just order before 1 pm.

And here’s a bonus: Use our exclusive discount code LOVEBM for an extra 10% off. Happy shopping!
