Have you seen Bed, Bath & Beyond lately? It’s that time of year again!!

Are you heading back to school in a few short weeks? Or maybe you have a darling child who is packing up? Maybe one of the back-to-schoolers you know will be lucky enough to get one of the following fun gifts, handmade from the wonderful members of Handmade Philly! (Click on the photos for more info!)

What girl wouldn’t want one of these awesome hats available from Mel’s Bells? With the prospect of chilly fall weather on the horizon (no? :)), this would be a perfect way to stylishly keep warm.

Those bland white apartment and dorm walls are in dire need of sprucing up! This fun print from ArtyPantz and Artist Victoria O’Neill is just the item to do the job.

Grab one of the few remaining note books from 108Books so your student has plenty of space to keep up with events (or to doodle, if that’s what’s required).

This sweet pillow from Thimbletop will brighten up any dorm. BONUS! Your student will be able to  fold the napkins for Thanksgiving dinner.

A one of a kind scarf from PunkRocKnits is a great way to keep the bright colors of summer close at hand through fall and winter.

Pick up this gorgeous vase at Little Flower Designs quick – it’s the last of its kind and it’s on sale!

Everyone needs a new bag for the start of a school year! Snag this roomy bag from Janzibar to carry anything from notebooks to wallets.

Speaking of fall weather, make a statement on campus and stay warm with this lovely cowl from Mama Holler.

Even the oldest student will fall in love with these fun bookplates created by The Lettered Set. This is a set of four safari animals, perfect for marking this semester’s books.

Love this digital collage from Jen McCleary. The clean, sharp lines would please the engineer or architecture major in your life.

Have a student who just can’t get away from crafting – even while away at school? Pick up this original quilt pattern and kit from Jaybird Quilts and keep your fingers crossed that this lovely quilt will appear under the Christmas tree with your name on it 🙂

Any one of these fantastic pieces would make fun going away gifts for the student in your life. Hope this gift guide made you go out and explore the many offerings from the wonderful members of Handmade Philly!
