Ready for back to school shopping? As summer creeps to a close and the school year begins, there are endless supplies to stock up on. If you (or your child) want to stand out from the crowd and show off your personality, there are plenty of cute school supplies for all ages.

Some back to school trends include items with an eco-twist, such as notebooks made from recycled waste paper or reusable lunch bags that put less trash into the environment. Other items help you give to a good cause while picking up a back to school backpack. For instance, STATE Bags has multiple initiatives to help American families and children in need, including donating fully-stocked backpacks to schoolchildren and fueling empathetic conversations with children through an initiative called #WhatDoWeTellTheKids.

If you or your kid is an animal lover, MUNI creates adorable animal backpacks that are also waterproof. The fox is our personal favorite, but you can select from animals like giraffes, bears, badgers, and bunnies. But the creature-themed items don't have to stop there. Animal motifs are popular on stationery and even electronics such as the cable protectors by Tuparka.

Scroll down for a selection of our favorite cute school supplies.

To help you express your style while sitting in the classroom, check out our back to school shopping list.
