Back to school gifts for kids, really 

Every summer as back-to-school season approaches, it seems we parents are bombarded (and our junk folders are filled) with gobs of email alerts about exciting ways to get ready for the kids’ return to the classroom.
As I sat poring over said emails, I saw the usual reminders from Pinterest about how to make a memorably crafty scrapbook-worthy photo capture of that first day back. Better Homes & Gardens magazine hit me with their list of fun ways to jazz up the kiddos’ lunch boxes. And, of course, there were the mountains of “deals” to have those kids looking straight-up on-point for their fall fashion debut.
But then I noticed one in particular that gave me pause — a link to list of “great back-to-school gifts.”
I immediately thought maybe it’s the style now to get a cute little classroom-themed knickknack for the teacher or candy for the teacher’s aide — but no. This was a list of gifts for your student.
