Back to School: Best Backpacks

There are so many options when it comes to backpacks for kiddos! Patterns, colors, different styles and sizes, personalized, and so much more! If your kids are like mine and need mesh or clear backpacks you can read more about those here!

Younger Kids

If you are looking for a high quality, personalized backpack for elementary aged kids look no further than Pottery Barn! Their backpacks come in the most adorable patterns and styles! These bags are on the pricier side, but they can be used for many years! They have so many patterns, colors, sizes, and styles! They also have entire matching collections so you can get the backpack, lunchbox, water bottle, nap mat, and pencil bag all in the same pattern! They also offer personalization on their items!


You have probably heard of LL Bean before and if you have it has probably been about their backpacks! LL Bean is known for their high quality backpacks! They are made of durable and waterproof materials! They have plenty of pockets to store everything from water bottles to pencils to computers! They also offer so many patterns and colors as well as various sizes! They also offer monogramming so you don’t have to worry about taking it somewhere else later!


Target has a wide variety of character backpacks that won’t break the bank! There are Disney characters, Bluey, Marvel, Pokemon, and so many others available! Many of the styles at Target also come with a water bottle, pencil pouch, and lunch bag! You can get the entire matching set all in one spot!

Older Kids

For older kids I recommend something that is a little more mature looking and higher quality! Since high school and college aged kids have more classes they typically carry more items like calculators and computers! I will always recommend a North Face backpack for this age group! I have one that I bought over 12 years ago that I still use today! They have large capacities, a padded laptop sleeve, plenty of pockets, and they are durable! They do offer a youth option as well that is slightly smaller and great for older elementary and middle school aged kids!

No matter which backpack you buy for your kiddos I hope they love it and have the best school year ever!
