For the Extrovert or Introvert


back to school gifts for students - pink canvas pouches

Does the student in your life need everything pink? Then lean towards our bold hot pink canvas pouch to hold all of their supply essentials. For a little mix and match, give them our fuchsia canvas pouch with a bright blue that makes them stand out. The extrovert in them will thank you when they want to attract attention.


For a more subtle approach, give them our pink and blue canvas pouch with a similar look as the fuchsia, but more ideal for the introvert. If pink totally isn’t their thing, a canvas pouch in navy blue is the best bet - and will go with all of their outfits.


The best part is, these pouches can withstand constant use, with a sturdy zipper and soft lining that’s bound to last them until graduation. Though, we won’t blame you if you want to buy these durable pouches in all the colors we have!

For the Gardener

Repurpose our change purse and fill it with all the best seeds to plant in the school garden and use our designs to inspire them. Roses are always a go-to favorite to tell someone you love them, so give them our floral roses coin purse to do just that. If they’re into a bit more variety with their flowers, our wildflower coin purse can give them the inspiration they need for the perfect, colorful garden. And they can’t forget our bee coin purse because without bees, we wouldn’t have amazing flowers.

Is science their favorite subject? Gift them with a coin purse that calls out their wild side. If they like animals, our sambar deer coin purse is a conversation starter guaranteed to make them new friends. As well as our spring birds coin purse, which is an eye-catcher with the bright pinks and blues that pop against the black. With these, they’ll be ready for their next school trip to The American Museum of Natural History.
