70 Gifts for High School Students

From Velvet Backpacks to Streetwear School Supplies

— December 8, 2018 — Eco
Shopping for the teenager in one's life might seem like a daunting task, but this list of gifts for high school students features some of the latest products and services generation Z can't get enough of.

Eastpak's Velvet Backpacks are helping young students look and feel their best in the classroom, and the utilitarian design is an added bonus that keeps parents happy. Meanwhile, those looking to express themselves wherever possible should be drawn to Nigo's Human Made brand, which released a line of streetwear-inspired school supplies.

Outside of the classroom, life can be stressful for the average teenager, which is why brands are offering plenty of self-care and beauty products to this age group. Examples of this include Go-To's simple skincare set for gen Zs or Tarte's Back-to-School blush palette.
