Summer is nearing an end and I’ve rounded up the cool for school best backpacks and lunch boxes to start off the year in style. There’s an endless assortment of backpacks and lunch boxes in styles from bright colors, stripes, florals, critters and super heroes to metallic, camouflage, denim and leather.

Staples has a wide assortment featuring the trendiest designs that kids want including their own exclusive line plus brands like Jansport, Swiss Army, High Sierra and Targus. Staples school supplies put a new spin on the classics so your school year feels new and fresh.
Have you been in Old Navy lately? Besides all the backpacks in prints like camouflage and floral they got bags covered with your favorite Marvel heroes to bags for Star Wars fans. Plus, they unveiled a cool, new shoe shop where you can shop for all the kids no matter the age in one place. They’ve even got a hopscotch on the floor so kids can play while mom and dad shop.
One of the newest brands in backpacks is STATE and I shopped for these styles from NeimanMarcus.com. For every STATE backpack bought one fully stocked backpack is hand delivered to an American child in need.When shopping online, I don’t like to wait a week or longer for my purchases to arrive nor do I want to pay shipping fees. I shop via Shoprunner.com and with my membership I get free two business day shipping and free returns too.

Ready for the great outdoors and sized to carry a laptop plus after school gear these packs may be subtle in style, but they carry plenty. They easily transition from high school to college to adulthood. These backpacks are from Staples and Old Navy.
From puppies to spaceships to cute critters, PotteryBarnKids.com has backpacks in sizes small to large and even backpacks on wheels so you don’t have to carry the load. They also have matching accessories like drink bottles, lunch bags and cutlery. My favorite lunch accessories are the variety of bread cutters so kids can have their pj & j sandwiches cut into shapes like trains and hearts.
