It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Nope, I’m not talking about Christmas, but Back to School (BTS)! Growing up in the 80s, Lisa Frank was the end-all, be-all for my back-to-school gear. But with the new-school crowd these days? Not so much. Instead, send your stylish kids to class with the Midas touch with these gilded BTS accessories. Better than any paper airplane—how adorable is this airplane charm necklace?! And gold foil-pressed mommy calling cards are perfect for play dates, carpools, and nonstop birthday parties.
