Amp up the style when it comes time to shop for school supplies! While pens, pencils, erasers, notebooks and all the usual supplies are certainly essential for being prepared for success in the classroom, that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Kids often consider their school supplies as an expression of their personality, creativity and unique style.

Luckily, shopping for cute school supplies is easier now than ever with a multitude of places to browse along with endless online options. When you know where to look, it can be easy, affordable and fun to find the cutest styles that are just right for their personal aesthetic.

Cute Supplies Make the Grade for School

Think outside the box when you consider where to buy the cutest school supplies the next time you need to stock up. There are dozen of adorable and practical options available at the usual places that carry school supplies, but check around at some other spots you might not have thought of before and you may be pleasantly surprised with the selection:

  • Kids’ and teen clothing stores
    This could be a new favorite place to find the cutest school supplies. Clothing stores geared toward kids and teens are already up on the latest fashion and they are sure to cater to the current trends, so take a look while you’re there shopping for clothes and you may find a treasure trove of super cute pens, notebooks, backpacks, lunch bags, tumblers and more.

  • Office supply stores and big-box retailers
    These stores are often the go-to spot for back-to-school supplies and they usually have a designated section within the store for all the necessary items. However, if you look beyond the initial displays and end-caps, and go a little deeper into the section, you can often find cute supplies that are themed, feature favorite characters or are designed to appeal to the latest trends.

    Pro tip: venture outside the back-to-school area and check out the section dedicated to office supplies for a sophisticated and style-savvy take on the staples. It’s sometimes a smaller selection than the back-to-school area, but it doesn’t compromise on cute!
  • Marketplace sites
    Crafters and artisans alike are featured on marketplace websites selling everything from paintings to jewelry to gift items and beyond, but did you know you can also find school supplies on sites like this? Discover personalized pens, pencils, bookmarks, labels and stickers that can be ordered with a custom message or your child’s name. There are also pen, pencil and phone cases, journals, planners and erasers in designs with your student’s favorite characters plus popular as-seen-on social media items, resulting in endless cute options to fit every style. As a bonus, supplies found here can be truly unique and are sure to have others asking, “where’d you find that?!”

  • Online
    Nothing beats the speed, efficiency and often affordability of mega online retailers, but if you tailor your search, you might be surprised at the vast array of cute school supplies available. Browse by a favorite color, character or style, and the results bring up the cutest pens, pencils, erasers, pouches, notebooks and more.
