This time of year is crazy, right? There are presents to buy, trees to decorate, holiday parties to plan, and that’s just the beginning of the never-ending list! Below is a list of 5 EASY holiday gifts for students submitted by other teachers! To check out all of the ideas from other teachers, click here. I chose these 5 gift ideas as they were easy, quick, yet were meaningful to students. I want gifts I give to students to be keepsakes that they will remember when they’re a bit older.
Gift Idea #1: Hardcover Journal/Notebook with a Hand-Written Note
There is NOTHING like a handwritten note from your teacher. I still have notes from when I was in third grade from one of my favorite teachers, and I can honestly say that she was my favorite teacher because of the relationship we had and the care she showed for us. Buying students their own hardcover notebook could be a way to get them writing, while also explaining how special they are! If you have a Cricket or Silhouette, you can also customize the front of the notebook with the child’s name! Throw in a gel pen and you have the perfect gift!
*Notebooks are from the Dollar Tree.
Total Cost: Approximately $1.20 per student
