May and June are a much awaited period for school-going kids in India, as these months stand for summer vacations. This period is keenly awaited even by the parents, for it is the time, when families plan their annual vacation.
As May ends, kids and parents in many states gear up for the school re-opening date, which seems all too close! For kids, it means a return to books and summer assignments, while for parents, it is the time to plan for buying new uniforms and school essentials.
We, at GujaratGifts.com believe, this is the perfect time to help out and show your love and caring by sending some thoughtful back to school gifts to your loved ones back home in India. With that objective, we present our list of top 5 items which are sure to be appreciated and cherished this summer!
1. School Bags: Kids do get bored with carrying the same school bag for years on end. With parents, reluctant at times to get a new one, if the old one is in perfect working order, gifting a school bag is a sure-shot way to light up the little one, and help her go back to school in style. You can check out some range of school bags here: http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/school-gear/school-bags.html
2. Stationery Items: There are very few items which evoke a fascination for school going kids like the humble stationery item. Any back to school season cannot be complete without new items like pencil boxes, coloring kits, geometry boxes, and sharpeners. You can be sure that your gift of love will find its place of pride amidst things to be flaunted by the kid. See some of these at http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/school-gear/stationery-items.html
3. Water Bottles: The range of water bottles available today are a far cry from what the older generation remembers from our days in school : today, water bottles are colorful, and employ a wide range of popular characters like Spiderman, Superman, Ben 10, and cute cartoons. These are both functional and fun to carry, and make for great gifts! You can see some of them at http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/school-gear/water-bottles.html
4. Lunch Boxes: The set of stuff to buy for school is not complete without an attractive lunch box, to go with the other cool stuff. Gone are the days of steel multi-box tiffins; as plastic lunch boxes in a variety of colors and motifs rule the school! These are multi-compartment, keeping in mind the portions and quantity appropriate for school going kids.

5. Sports & Hobbies: School cannot be all work and no play, and what better gift than an item which is sure to exercise the non-academic talents of the young child. To that end, some great gifts are coloring kits (http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/others-en-2-3-4-5/arts-and-hobbies.html) and sports equipments (http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/others-en-2-3-4-5/sports-gifts.html). One can even give encouragement to the musical talents (discovered or undiscovered!) of the child by gifting a musical instrument (http://www.gujaratgifts.com/gifts-for-kids/others-en-2-3-4-5/musical-instruments.html)
