As we approach our first day back to homeschool, it got me thinking. Wouldn’t it be nice to get back to school gifts for homeschoolers?
My son doesn’t get to go back to school shopping, so no new backpack, and no new clothes, so I thought this year as he has a lot of public school friends I would make it more special.
Although we homeschool year-round, on the day the public schools go back, we have our little back to homeschool celebration. We play games, mad libs, and just generally have fun.
This back to school gift guide can also be used for public school kids.

Best homeschool electronic gift
My son is a gamer, he just loves all things electronic.
He got the color-changing mouse and mouse pad for Christmas this year, and they were a HUGE HIT.
They were also cheaper than I was expecting at less than $20, so I think these would make a great back to homeschool gift if you don’t already have them.
We absolutely love games, but I have only included a handful here all under the price of $20.
