It’s the most wonderful time of the year (for parents, anyway): back to school season! That means you’ll be making quite a few shopping trips over the next few weeks to Target, Staples and Walmart to pick out school supplies with your school-aged kiddos.

But every incoming elementary schooler, middle schooler, high schooler and even college kid needs their own personalized stuff too to complement their run-of-the-mill supplies. This generation requires more than just black and white marbleized notebooks and a Trapper Keeper like you did as a kid.

So, we scoured Instagram to find a few local crafty Bergenites who are selling personalized items that your kids will love to show off when they return to the classroom. Get your kids as excited for academic year 2022-23 as you are with these cute finds. Bonus: Shopping small supports a local business too!
