Back-to-school shopping often continues even after the school year’s official start. And, while you’re out grabbing up those remaining items on your list, the moms at Magpies Gifts have a helpful tip: Monogramming is a great way to start the academic year on the right foot. Whether they wear them or carry them, monogrammed items help your little ones show off their personality and style — while also helping them keep track of their belongings. Here are a few of our best tips for making back-to-school simpler with a monogram.
Bring a Slice of Home to Naptime and Lunchtime Alike
That thing most children dread, the nap, is the part of our children’s routine we wish we could add to our to-do list. Make naps away from home a bit comfier with a monogrammed nap mat or blanket. (After all, what better way is there to make a little one feel special than with a snuggly-soft accessory just for them?) When mealtime rolls around, a customized lunch kit helps ensure they’re getting the meal you meant for them (even if they do try to swap those carrot sticks out for cookies.)
Personalize Your Kid’s Style
Back-to-school shopping always means a few additions to the wardrobe. Why? Because nothing says “fresh start” like a fun new head-to-toe look. Personalize your child’s hair bows with her initials or name — or get the school’s name embroidered for a little added spirit! Take things a step further with monogrammed uniform shirts (hey — it’s a great way to amp up that everyday outfit) or their name spelled out big and bold on a backpack!
Stay Hydrated During the Carpools
Temperatures might be cooling down soon, but hydration is just as important as ever! Encourage your kiddos to keep up with their water intake with a water bottle personalized with a vinyl monogram. This handy tool is sure to stay by their side all day long, from school drop-offs, to lunchtime, soccer games and beyond. (And if it accidentally gets left behind on the bleachers? That monogram makes it much more likely that bottle will find its way back home!)
