With 20 or more students in your class, it can be hard to choose gifts they will all love. It can also get expensive buying gifts for the whole class. These 8 ideas will make all of your students happy, and they won’t break the bank. (In fact, numbers 7 and 8 are completely free!)
Gift Idea #1 – Mini Inspirational Notepads
Encourage your students to write over winter break with these mini inspirational notebooks. They will love the different sayings on them, and as they write, they will be reminded to think big and believe in themselves. You could even have the students use the notebooks to write about their holiday breaks and bring them back to share in the new year.
Gift Idea #2 – Multicolor Ballpoint Pens
If you’re students love fun pens and are always “borrowing” yours, these multicolor ballpoint pens would make a great gift! They can choose the color they want to use to write. Each pen has six different colors. You could even have the students keep the pens at school and use them for editing their writing. They could use a different color to find each type of mistake.
Gift Idea #3 – Scented Bookmarks
Have you noticed that your students love anything that is scratch-and-sniff? If so, these fruit scented bookmarks will be a hit. They are such a cute and fun way for your students to keep their place in their books as they’re reading. You could also include a book with the bookmarks if you have extra Scholastic points to spend on dollar books.
Gift Idea #4 – Mini Rubik’s Cubes
Rubik’s Cubes are a fun way for your students to practice critical thinking skills. You could use these for some fun activities on the last day before winter break. Set a timer and see which student can solve the Rubik’s Cube first. You could also do a lesson on strategies to solve the puzzle.
Gift Idea #5 – Mini Pop-It Keychains
If your students are obsessed with pop-its, these keychains are a cute gift idea. They can use them as fidgets in the classroom or take them home. They will love hanging them on their backpacks or desks.
Gift Idea #6 – Scratch and Sniff Stickers
Stickers are another fun gift for your students. And what’s even better than regular stickers? Scratch and sniff stickers! Your students will enjoy decorating their papers, folders, and binders with these adorable stickers.
Gift Idea #7 – A No Homework Pass
If you’re looking for a gift idea that doesn’t cost any money but will be appreciated by all your students, try a no homework pass. It allows your students to skip their homework for one night. The homework pass will come in handy if they have a big baseball game after school or if they just forget their homework paper at school.
Gift Idea #8 – A Coupon for Something They Love
Think about something your class really enjoys this year, and create a special coupon to let them enjoy it on a day of their choice. Maybe they love stuffed animals, and you want to give them a coupon to bring a stuffed animal from home for a day. Maybe they really like playing games on their devices. You could give them a free tech time coupon that allows them to play a game of their choice for 15 minutes. You could even personalize the coupons to your students based on what they each enjoy or give them a choice from a set of coupons.
