We really wish this was something we didn’t need to talk about. The unfortunate truth is that school violence is a very real issue and it’s better to veer on the side of caution whenever possible. These backpacks, although pricier than most, come equipped with bulletproof technology. You can opt for a pack that has a built in shield or purchase a shield that can slip into a pack you already have. These packs can help to protect your children in the event of an emergency.

This is a great option for college students who need a space saving solution but still want to, ya know, eat. This unit comes with a coffee maker, grill and oven all in one little package. We also love the 50’s style design. It’s available in a variety of colors and will make those late night study sessions much more bearable. Double check with your accommodations to make sure these kinds of appliances are permitted.
