Back To School With A Personal Touch

Personalised T-shirt, notebook and pencil tin with our own choice of photos on them (our dog and some skiing photos), as back to school gifts for the children

The six weeks’ school holidays are such a long time, aren’t they? For the children, and for the parents too! So, it’s nice to have something new to go back to school with, to ease the transition back into the classroom. More than just a new pair of shoes, that is!

We were offered the opportunity to create something extra special by a great company called Bags of Love. They personalise a vast array of products with your own photographs, and the choice is amazing.

Ever the creatives, my boys were excited to create something of their own. Of course, they never want to follow my guidance! So although I was encouraging them to have something for school, Toby wanted to have a t-shirt with photos of our dog on it! He adores our dog, and insisted he would wear it all the time. Actually, he could get away with wearing it for sports at school, but it is so lovely, I’m not sure I’d want him to!

Yes, when the t-shirt arrived, I was so amazed by the quality of both the fabric and the print. It is soft and the weave is really tight, it feels wonderful. It also looks wonderful too! The colours are so perfectly bright and the print quality so excellent, it’s like wearing the actual photograph! It’s definitely the best print product I’ve ever seen.

Hugo chose a notebook and a pencil tin. Much more appropriate for school! Ever rebellious though, he shunned all of our lovely summer photos in favour of ski images! He’s obviously looking forward to skiing already, and I must admit that the images he chose made up beautifully into his stationery products. The snow colours sat perfectly on the silver colour of the tin lid, and the quality of the hard cover notebook was stunning. Again, I was so impressed with the images, they were just like actual photographs, with not a hint of graininess or colour fade. The pictures were printed on the front and back of the book.Personalised pencil tin and hardback notebook with lovely pictures from our ski trip, which make them very special

There was so much excitement when the products arrived, which only took a few days. Toby was very keen to model his new t-shirt for us, and Daphne was delighted to see herself in print too!

The boys can’t wait to show off their new products at school.

I have been so impressed by the whole process of ordering from Bags of Love. It was so easy to create the products online. The delivery was really quick, and the quality of the products and print are second to none! Why not take a look, and create something truly unique for your little ones heading back to school?
