No matter how old we get, we still get that fresh-start feeling every time September rolls around. Even if you’re just returning to the office after the long weekend, the beginning of fall is a good time to reset and refocus — and maybe even pick back up on those resolutions you dropped in February.

Much like shopping for school supplies, buying a few new things can help you stay organized, motivated and inspired to finish the year strong. Here are the products and accessories topping our back-to-school shopping list.

1. Graf Lantz MacBook Pro and Air Wool Sleeve ($59)

Your laptop contains your whole life, so give it a little extra love with a stylish carrier that’ll make you the envy of everyone at the office or coffee shop. Made of muted gray merino wool with a leather flap, the sleeve combines form and function in one chic, functional accessory. 

2. Cinnamon Projects 7AM Incense ($30) & Chord Brass Incense Burner ($110)

It’s no secret that a meditative morning ritual is a major productivity hack. Start the “school year” off on a positive note by burning these Japanese-style incense sticks in an elegant brass burner. The soothing, mystical aromas of black tea, clay, driftwood and marigold will prepare you for whatever the day throws at you.

3. Rose & Fitzgerald Marbled Soapstone Curved Bookend Set ($145)

Get inspired to tackle your autumn reading list with gorgeously crafted bookends that add a touch of class and glamour to your shelf. Elegantly curved and made of hand-chiseled, marbled soapstone, the blush-colored accessories will transform your living room or office into a dignified reading room.
