Getting ready for the children to go back to school can be slightly overwhelming, so we've rounded up some inspiration to help you out with the things you need to buy

Back to school shopping Southside Wandsworth

1. It's important to make sure your little one is always hydrated, so get them a suitable water bottle that they can take into school and refill. This one is great because it uses the spot detail on the top to count how many bottles of water you have had in a day, with the maximum number being the right amount. Debenhams, £10

2. Help your child with their homework and bring the learning home with this suitcase full of letters to do spelling games. Flying Tiger Copenhagen, £5

3. Help them to get their ideas and studying in order right from the get-go with a new notebook to jot everything down in. Paperchase, £8

4. These super sweet dog paperclips will keep all of their paper and study notes in an organised order. Oliver Bonas, £5.50

5.  Remember how exciting it was to get new stationery when you were little (who are we kidding, it still is!)? This fluffy pom-pom pen is sure to make someone smile. Accessorize, £3.50

6. This Smiggle pencil case can be personalised with their name, which could be nice touch. Smiggle, £7

7. Looking for a cool backpack? This colour-block one from Gap is simple, practical, but also stylish and it will appeal to a lot of teenagers. Gap, £29.95
