Personalise Your Accessories At JD Sports

When big J was in primary school he never wanted to take a school bag, he didn't feel there was a need for it as he had the schools own book bag. Since he started seniors that changed, in fact his school bag has become a big deal.


Obviously his bag needs to be big enough to fit all his school work in that he has to bring home. Also he has swimming and p.e too so it has to be a reasonable size. Not only that the bag has to be branded. He hasn't always been in to named clothes or accessories but that changed when you he went to seniors. He likes to keep up with his peers and whilst it can be expensive sometimes I have to say usually the branded items end up lasting longer.

We usually shop just before term starts but this year we were so busy with being away on holiday that I had to shop online for most of his essentials.


Towards the start of term we were offered the chance to try out accessories from JD Sports and personalise them.

Big J loves JD Sports, its one of his favourite shops so he knew instantly what bag he wanted as he had seen it the previous week. JD Sports online gives you the chance to personalise a variety of accessories including a selection on bags and caps.



Big J personalised The Nike Young Athletes Halfway Backpack with JM and chose a Nike Limitless True Snapback Cap to go with it. The cap was also personalised with JM too.

When they arrived I was really impressed with the personalisation. The initials are stitched on and also quite discreet which is perfect for teenagers.

You can check out the personalisation options by visiting JD Sports online. Personalisation is just £5 and is available for up to 3 alphanumerics.

  1. I'm hoping to avoid branded products for a while yet as my girls are so young (under 2). However, given the Toddlers love of anything Iggle Piggle, I guess branding is the next stage. I like the idea of personalisation. X

  4. The personalisation is a great idea - and, as you say, it's discreet, which helps with the cool factor ;-)

  5. My oldest daughter has an obsession with having her name on everything at the moment.With so many things needed for school having them label is an absolute must if you don't want them lost.

  6. That is a great idea, it saves parents from trying to stitch it on themselves. In high school especially, a lot of children have the same bags, so it's important to make sure it's obvious who each thing belongs too, but also be discreet like you said for teenagers!

  7. This is such a great idea! I still remember how at the start of every school year I used to choose a bag and it was such a big deal what bag you had haha!

  8. This is really good, especially with how discreet the naming is for teens, and of course the branding is a BIG DEAL once you hit high school. I remember it like it was last week ( it was 9 years ago ) and their is so much pressure to be on trend. Hope he's loving his cool gear :) Xx

  9. Jd sports is great but I didn't know you can personalise bags and stuff. I must keep that in mind when Matthew starts school.

  10. what a great idea - a much easier and foolproof way of identifying school stuff. There's a very clever person behind this, hope they are getting the credit they deserve - and do you think you could take other stuff in for them to do? ;)

  11. Well I never knew that JD Sports offered a personalisation service! I love your son's choice of backpack and cap - as you say these things are very important at senior school.

  12. This is great, I never knew you could get things like this personalised! I can imagine it is a big hit and I agree, usually the branded items do last longer so are worth it! x

  13. This sounds like a great idea. The bag does become really important doesn't it, and personalising them like this would be a great touch.

  15. What a fabulous idea, personalising is such a great touch and takes one thing off the to do list for preparing them for school. I do agree with branded items I do feel they sometimes last longer :)

  16. This is really great, and I had no idea they offered this service. My 12 year old boy would go crazy for a personalised sports bag!

  17. What a great idea particularly if you lose it and need help identifying the bag or hat which ever personalized item you choose.
