If you’re stocking up on supplies for the new school year, there are a few must-have items for every student.  Here are a couple of our favorites.

Pencil Bags and Carry Cases

Surely the most important new supply for school is the pencil case. It’s the one thing that everyone gets to see so it’s important that you get something cool and fun.

Luckily that’s easy as there are so many different designs around, from see-through cases in neon colors to pouches decorated with cartoon characters. If you’d like something a little bit more grown-up; cases with animal print or with a metallic finish are perfect for college students.

Rose Gold Glitter Pens

Binders and Folders


There’s no need for boring binders or folders when you can get them decorated with all kinds of images and prints. Whether you find one with your favorite film characters or covered with romantic flowers, taking notes will be a lot less dull with a folder that you love.

School Planners

Adorned with everything from unicorns, sweet cats and dogs to leopard skin prints and flowers, today’s planners are not only practical, but they look really cool too.

Memo Holders and Desk Organizers

While pencil cases are very handy for taking your supplies to school, you also need somewhere to keep all your stationery at home. And that’s where desk organizers and memo holders come in. They’re the perfect place to put your pens and pencils and other necessities such as paperclips, scissors, rulers and memos.

If you’re a middle school or college student, a desk organizer with a built-in charging hub for your phone or other technology will prove to be a very useful addition to your desk, while a desk or wall planner will help to ensure that you submit your assignments on time too.

Cool School Supplies for Middle School Kids

When it comes to school projects, it’s helpful to have a selection of supplies that will help with cutting, sticking and painting. Items such as mini and full-sized staplers, glue and tape, colored pencils, pens, and paints will all help you to create great projects to ensure you get the best grade for your work.

Check out some of the fun designs for 2020 such as Unicorn tape dispensers, floral handled scissors, erasers designed to look like burgers and fries and sharpeners made to resemble porky little pigs. Having distinctive stationery makes any project much more fun!

Fun Art Tools and Supplies

Take your arts and crafts to new levels this year by stocking up on your collection of art tools and accessories. Necessary items include art paper, border trims, a glue gun, paint brushes, erasers, a paint palette, and paints. For more creative projects, you’ll need glitter, ribbons, rubber stamps, shapes, buttons, feathers and maybe even some wiggle eyes.
