Our Favourite Back to School Essentials

It’s that wonderful time of year again when kids of all ages are headed back to school. When the commercials start to play non-stop on the t.v. and radio, they are usually focused on school supplies such as pens, paper and clothes. What we tend to forget are the much-needed sleep essentials for students! We’ve gathered our 4 favourite items for you to pick up for the student living at home or to send in a care package to college.

Tea from The Algonquin Tea Company

There’s nothing more comforting than cozying up with a warm cup of tea, especially while studying for exams. This delicious tea is made of 100% certified organic, hand-picked, indigenous Canadian herbs and blended herbal teas. Lucid Dream will help you to remember your dreams, Peace Tea will calm you during any busy period, Sacred Blend will give you a sense of focus and Sweetfern is a healthy blend that can be enjoyed daily.

New Bedding from Cuddledown

For the student that’s living in res or away from home, new bedding is a must! This 100% cotton duvet cover is woven in Portugal and made in Canada. Perfect to add a homey touch to any bedroom.

A Great Read – What Should I Do With My Life?

A great gift for the student in your life that may help answer this age old question! Read through humorous and inspirational true stories from individuals starting out in their careers to those who are on their second or third! Perfect to sneak into a backpack 😉

The Nite Hood

For the one that has trouble sleeping or maybe even a roommate that burns the midnight oil studying, the Nite Hood is a perfect gift. The Nite Hood™ is a new kind of sleep mask. Its essential properties lay in its soft, locally knit bamboo fabric that uses opacity and stretch to make a cozy dark space for sleeping. The Nite Hood™ is worn to completely cover the head, covering the eyes and ears, softly applying a gentle embrace, inducing you to relax and nod off. What’s even better? Margaret Atwood loves it too!!
