The holidays are so much fun but, let’s face it, they can be a bit rough on the bank account! With all of the parties, family gatherings, and good cheer to spread it can really add up. Here are a few cheap holiday student gifts that you and your kids will love!
Scholastic Books ($34 for 32 coupons)
Use Birthday Coupons to let your students choose a book for up to $5. Or, if you have a lot of Scholastic Points saved up, you can use them to purchase the books. I did this with my students last year and they loved it! The students got to look through the December catalogs to see what they would like to choose. I then placed all of the orders and the books were there for them when we returned to school. It is so fun for the kids to get to go “shopping” and for a few of them it is one of the only times that they have ever gotten to order books so it meant a lot to them!
These have to be one of the easiest and cheapest gifts to give your students. They cost you almost nothing and the kids love them! Who doesn’t love a night of no homework?!?! Just print, cut, personalize and you’re ready to go! Here are a few that we love:
- Holiday and Christmas No Homework Pass by Jessica Annand
- Winter Troll Homework Pass by Angelica’s Resources
- “Christmas Tree Cookie” Homework Pass by Rich Carlson’s TPT Store
- 81 Holiday Themed Homework Passes by Christina Bainbridge
Activity Book or Journal & Crayons
For some of our little guys, winter break means a lot of time entertaining themselves. Why not provide them with a fun, safe activity that they will love? Winter Activity Books, like this one (free!), are great for challenging your kiddos and keeping their minds engaged! Here is another one with an emphasis on journaling ($1.50)! You can grab a bulk supply of crayons (24 packs) on Amazon for about $30! Put them together and you have a really nice gift that your kiddos and parents will love!
