The best in back-to-school essentials

With the summer holidays coming to an end, you might be celebrating or tearing up (we won’t blame you either way). But before you send the kids back to school, you’ll want to make sure they have the very best back-to-school gear!

Every year it’s the same thing. The school summer holidays have only just begun and every supermarket and stationery store from here to Timbuktu is talking “back to school”. But every year like clockwork the water bottles leak and the lunch boxes crack and you have to do it all over again…

At Berry we handpick brands of the highest quality, so you don’t have to worry about whether they’ll last the school year. No more leaky bottles ruining your textbooks or tatty tupperware that splits and leaks all over your lunch bag. Here are our top picks to prepare for sending the kids back to school.

Insulated water bottles designed to last

As the original inventors of the stainless steel water bottle, Klean Kanteen offers bottles in a range of shapes and sizes, suitable for any age. Providing options for babies, toddlers, little kids and big kids, the Kid Kanteen range is designed for easy transition as kids grow up.

For even bigger kids, Klean Kanteen’s range of ‘Classic’ bottles is available in insulated and non-insulated options to ensure your drink is kept at the intended temperature. Perfect no matter what time of year it is!

Looking for a more lightweight option? Rethink your drinking with Vapur’s range of reusable water bottles capable of being rolled up when empty. The ultimate choice when dealing with limited space.

Plastic-free lunch boxes with leakproof lids

A lunch box can make or break a meal. You can’t expect the contents to stay fresh and enjoyable if the container itself is tattered and falling apart! Klean Kanteen has designed a range of stainless steel food containers with an emphasis on durability and ensuring food is kept fresh.

Perfect for lunches, the Klean Food Boxes are available in a variety of sizes from 207ml to 1,005ml. With snap-and-lock lids, you are protected against any leaks and spills. Hot or cold, the TKCanister range is perfect for keeping your food at the right temperature thanks to its Climate Lock™ vacuum.

Bamboo cutlery for when you’re on the go

What goes perfectly with your reusable lunch box? Reusable cutlery! As part of their environmentally friendly product offering, ChicoBag offers high-quality reusable bamboo cutlery for all ages. Made from recycled plastic bottles, the heat and stain-resistant cutlery is capable of replacing 1300 single-use utensils throughout its life.

Upgrade your kitchen arsenal ahead of the packed lunch rush

It’s not all about the kids. Someone has to make the packed lunches after all! At Berry, we offer a wide selection of kitchenware to help you boost your packed lunch game. From Opinel kitchen knives that make light work of the tireless chopping to cutting boards. We also stock a variety of knife sharpeners to ensure you never have to suffer a dull blade!
