3. Crocs Child Classic Clogs

Yes, Crocs are on our kid's list of back-to-school items—because they'll end up wearing them to school and around the house (like us). Buyers not only talk about how much their little ones love them but they're made of smooth Croslite foam that's almost indestructible.

Amazon

4. Bright Day Kids' Planner

A planner specifically designed for kids can help them to stay on top of things this school year, and this one will last them through June 2023. With a to-do list and a "things to remember" section, they can use it to jot down due dates, set goals and reminders.

Amazon

8. Amacool Fan

This mini tripod-looking fan was designed to be clipped onto baby strollers, but buyers say its tri-fold legs make it easy to stick just about anywhere, like a desk or the side of a dorm bed headboard, and it has a long battery life (up to ten hours per charge). Priceless!

Amazon

9. Apple Watch Series 7

If they're headed to college, the latest Apple Watch will seriously come in handy. On top of texting and making phone calls, they can also use Maps, Apple Pay and track their health. So basically, it's like a phone, GPS, wallet and watch, all in one easily-accessible device.

We have a feeling you're gonna want one, too.

Amazon

11. Kindle Essentials Bundle

Once your student gets their hands on a Kindle, they'll never look back. That's because having a Kindle is like having 1,000+ books on one lightweight device. Plus, the glare-free display will make it easier to read when the sun is blazing, so they can study on the quad. With this bundle, they'll also get a charger and cover to protect it. Even better, you can snag 11 percent off if you order it now.

Help your child to stay organized with a pencil case. It will fit inside their bookbag and can be used to sort everything from pencils and pens to erasers and glue sticks.

Amazon

13. 2022 Apple Macbook Pro

Apple laptops are some of the sleekest and most advanced computers on the market, and they're ideal for high school and college students who basically live on their laptops (writing papers, researching, etc.). But what makes them worth the $1,000+ price tag is that they're built to last, which means your child should have it for several grades—and beyond, according to reviewers.

Amazon

14. Tanmit Gel Pens Set

If gel pens are also your child's weakness, they'll be obsessed with this 36-piece set featuring glitter, metallic, neon, pastel and classic colors to write and doodle with. The best part is that it's on sale for just $11.

Amazon

15. Crayola Inspiration Art Case

They'll probably need crayons, markers and colored pencils at some point during the school year, so you might as well scoop up this case for them featuring all of the above (64 crayons, 20 short-colored pencils and 40 washable markers, to be exact). They'll even get 15 large pieces of paper to draw on and a cool case to keep all their supplies in.

Amazon

16. Hp Chromebook Laptop

A thin laptop will come in handy when your kid is jetting from class to class, and this 11-inch version weighs just under 3 pounds, so it's incredibly lightweight and worth the $139 price tag.
