With less than a few weeks to go until the new school year begins...
Have you compiled your child's back to school list? Have you checked it twice? If you did, fantastic. Kudos to you, parent.
But if you've been swept up in the excitement and relaxation of summer break or your schedule pushed other tasks to the top slots, you won't have to hurry to the nearest mall for some rushed school supplies shopping. Have a look at our five best online sites for back to school shopping in UAE.
The best part? Most of them have free shipping in the UAE and some of the online discounts are even better than what you'd find in stores.
Sprii is a one-stop shop for parents in the UAE. You can find everything for mums with children of any age, from the adorable little ones to the bigger kids who may be moving on from rainbows and robots, but are still so dear.
Need a new schoolbag? Pens and colouring pencils? Study activities? New notebooks? Their back to school sale section is everything.
