Back to School with House of Fraser

I can’t quite believe how quickly the Summer holidays have passed. It’s been so nice having the boys at home and not having to worry about the school routine. We have just over a week away until my eldest starts Year 2 and I have to say I am feeling a little smug this year as everything is pretty much washed, ironed and labelled. We also won’t have the usual last minute rush for school shoes either this year as we had to buy him shoes two weeks before the end of term and thankfully they still fit!


I do still have a few items to buy but they are not essential to have when he starts school. E currently uses a Book Bag which he takes to and from school every day, I have been toying with the idea of replacing it with a rucksack instead simply because his book bag always seems to be overflowing and never shuts properly.

I love the look of the following Kid’s Bags which I think he would love as he is into anything to do with Dinos and Sharks. I also like the fact that these bags won’t date easily because they are not character specific (like Star Wars, Minions and Ninja Turtles for example)

Joules Boys Dinosaur Print Rucksack
Joules Boys Shark Character Rucksack
Joules Boys Octopus Rucksack
Tulipop Fred Backpack

E will also need a winter coat once the weather turns around October time and I have picked out some stylish ones below. I really like the Barbour Waterproof Parka and the Tog 24 Thermal Jacket although I’m not too sure if he will find the fur around the hood a bit annoying?

Howick Junior Boys Quilted 4 Pocket Coat
Barbour Boys Waterproof 4 Pocket Parka Jacket
Regatta Boys Giant Padded Jacket

What do you think of my choices for backpacks and coats?

  1. Oooh thanks for sharing this. We don’t need back packs as the two who require them already have them. We do need coats for three boys. I would never have considered HOF as I always go to next, but I think I may branch out this year.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Less thank a week till all three of mine go back.
