Christmas Student Gift Ideas: Christmas is a fun time in every classroom, but the financial stress of what you as the teacher can get each and every student in your classroom isn’t something that should be adding to your stress factor this year. Here are a few inexpensive gifts for students from teachers. Many of these are bulk gifts for students that your team can go in on as well.
Dollar Books from Scholastic is a Great Christmas Student Gift Ideas
Use Scholastic points to get a $1 book for each student. I save up my Scholastic Dollars and use them towards a fun book. This year I was able to find several $1 titles including Santa Duck, Hello Christmas, Gingerbread Mouse, and Snowman Magic. (For these links to work, you do have to have and be logged into a Scholastic account.) Each book was $10 or 50 points. Since I only purchased these books with my points, I did have to pay a $3.50 shipping fee. Well worth 25 books, one for each of my students. You can take it a step further and record yourself reading the book to your students! Here is a post I created to show you how.
Holiday Cups is a Great Christmas Student Gift Ideas
Another FUN idea is a water bottle. I found these at The Dollar Store. They are $1 each and each child can color their own design. If you are a monogram fan or have a parent who can help you out, these are easy to personalize for each student. (Here is a link to these cups in case you want to order them online.)
Crayons & Coloring Books is a Great Christmas Student Gift Ideas
Give your students the gift of a box of crayons and a dollar store coloring book. These 8 count of these crayon packs from Amazon. (The pack count is a little high so see if you can split these with a fellow teacher.)
Jump Ropes is a Great Christmas Student Gift Ideas
Snag these fun jump ropes for a cute student gift idea as well. You can easily tie them up in a bow with a tag and wow your students with a sweet note.
Dollar Store Mittens as a Christmas Student Gift Ideas
Many teachers ask each student to bring in a dollar store stocking and have other students bring in a small item for each student to bring for each of their friends. A big hit is always lip balm or a glow stick necklace. I also love the idea of giving each student a pair of mittens. Let’s face it, kids always lose some it is good to give everyone a pair. These are priced at 2 pairs for $1.
And honestly, it is 100% fine to NOT get your students any gift at all. A sweet handwritten note from a teacher to a student always goes a LONG LONG way.
