Send your chil­dren to school with a smile on their faces as you buy some lovely school es­sen­tials that are per­fect for the new term.

It is that time of the year again. When your child can­not wake up to the af­ter­noon sun, can’t eat, sleep, and play when­ever they or their friends want, and also have to come back home and deal with this de­mon that they call home­work. Yes, it is time for them to go back to school. For oth­ers who have al­ready started their new term, life is all set in the daily rou­tines of early morn­ing alarms and loads of school work to at­tend to.

But school is not al­ways about home­works and early rise; there are a num­ber of other things that your child could look for­ward to as you send them back to school; all set and ready for a new term filled with new sur­prises, new lessons, and new kinds of fun. Apart from this, chil­dren also get to pick up some great new school ac­ces­sories dur­ing this time of the year.

Be it some­thing funky or those which are value for money, it’s no doubt that they can at­tend the first day of school in style and it needn’t be an ex­pen­sive af­fair. Head­ing back to school is also the time when the pres­sure is more on the par­ents more than the chil­dren who have to plan and bud­get in ad­vance be­fore buy­ing the school sup­plies.

Cen­tre­point has some­thing for boys, girls, tod­dlers, and teenagers. For lit­tle girls who are still not over the Frozen frenzy, go for the sassy bags that has Elsa and other char­ac­ters from the movie on it. If your daugh­ter is an ever­green lover of Hello Kitty, then you can go for that too. And if man­ag­ing to wake up in the morn­ing makes your son feel like a su­per­hero, then choose the su­per­hu­man bags in­clud­ing Su­per­man and Bat­man and un­leash their su­per­pow­ers. How­ever, if you like to stay on the ground then you could even go for the Trans­form­ers and the Fer­rari gear.

If you thought they have all these op­tions just in bags, then you are mis­taken. You get a com­plete set of stylish pen­cil pouches, lunch boxes, wa­ter bot­tle and more, and if you’re won­der­ing how all these mun­dane things could look stylish and ex­cit­ing, then you are in for a very pleas­ant sur­prise.

For those who are at an age where all these bold char­ac­ters on their bags are just tacky, there are some funky prints on bags for the classy teenagers. You will find boho blitz pat­terns, flower power de­signs, pop ex­pres­sion prints for an eye-catch­ing gear.

The range sports pop­u­lar prod­ucts from brands such as Her­shel, Sack­roots, Jworld, Jans­port, Min­mei, and Out­sider in at­trac­tive prints and colours. And if you want your chil­dren to put their best foot for­ward then visit Shoe­mart for their wide range of black uni­form shoes, white can­vas sneak­ers, and sports shoes.

That’s not all. The back to school shop­ping is a breeze at City Cen­tre Qu­rum too where free school bags are be­ing given away daily as part of the mall’s pro­mo­tion which will be on till Au­gust 31. Along with that at Borders chil­dren can get high-qual­ity books of all cur­ricu­lums. Op­tions are ga­lore; buy with­out hurt­ing your wal­let. —shruthi@time­so­fo­
