The new school year is around the corner, and you’re in full-on preparation mode. You’ve knocked out your children’s supplies lists, bought them practical clothes and made sure they finally finished those required reading lists.

Don’t fret. Whether you’re a parent, school administrator or district official, here are five gift ideas to help you conquer that to-do list and win back-to-school:

School Spirit Door Hangers

Universally liked and durable, you can’t go wrong with mascot door hangers. These customizable items can be cut to any size or shape, and teachers can use them for their classrooms year after year.

Water Bottles with Built-in Speakers

School staffers are constantly on the go. Help them stay hydrated with water bottles with built-in bluetooth speakers, which double as a classroom tool. 

Reversible Umbrella

No one wants to get stuck unprepared in the rain, especially if they’re carrying graded papers or handling bus duty. With a reversible umbrella, they’ll always be weather-ready for their next trip outside.
