Giant Tiger Goes Back to School

In a recent GFK study, 44% of Canadian parents in the 25-to-34 age group (often referred to as Millennials)  plan to spend more on back-to-school shopping in in 2016, then in previous years.  With spending rising in Canada, you may be feeling stressed about getting everything your child needs for back to school.  Shop Giant Tiger first to save money on back to school shopping. Whether it’s shopping for a backpack,  a back-to-school wardrobe, school lunch supplies, or even a box of tissues for mom, Giant Tiger has you covered!

Back to School Must haves

Licensed Character Backpacks

 Licensed Character BackpackBackpacks are the #1 essential for school. A backpack leaves with your child in the morning and stays with them until they get home. It’s essential for holding supplies, books, and lunch. It’s no surprise that kids prefer picking backpacks that show off their personality and interests.

While my daughter doesn’t necessary need a new backpack this year, she did show an interest in the Frozen back pack set from Giant Tiger.  The three piece set features Elsa & Anna. The set includes an all-in-one backpack, lunch bag and pencil case. For $22.99 this is a real saving. Choose from Frozen, Spiderman, Secret Life of Pets, Finding Dory and more.

While a lunchbox wasn’t cool when we were in school, it’s a necessity now for kids who stay for lunch. Add extra fun to lunchtime with a licensed lunch bag from Giant Tiger. Licensed lunch bags are just $9.97 and we found them to be very roomy. While my daughter doesn’t use a lunch bag yet for pre-school, she does use a bag to store her little toys.
