Gift Idea #2 Top Ten Lists

Materials: Cardstock and printer ink
Time to Prepare: A few hours depending on class size (1-2 days if you survey students for Top Ten lists ideas)

Top Ten Lists are FREEpersonalized, easy, and the kids love them. These are, very simply, a list of 10 things you (or classmates) like about them. Since you'll need to make one for every student they are more time consuming, but you can knock them out in a night. Use the editable Top 10 List freebie here and customize one for every student. If you have time in class you can have other students brainstorm character traits or interview classmates to see what others like about said students, but if you're in a time crunch you can just do these on your own. Print on cardstock, laminate, give to students. Holiday gift complete!

Gift Idea #3 Compliments

Cost: $3 for paper bags
Materials: Paper bags, paper, school printer
Time to Prepare: This is a whole month activity, but if you're in a crunch a week will do.

Classmate compliments are FREE, don't require color printing or laminating, and give students an extra something to do during the month (or last week) before break. You can even use them as a writing center! Have students decorate paper bags (we call them RACK sacks - ONE because I find the word "sack" funny, and TWO because it rhymes with RACK/Random Acts of Classroom Kindness) and put them somewhere safe in the room. Throughout the week students are assigned or can draw names of classmates to write a sincere compliment to. Have the kids turn these in and pass them out to RACK sacks yourself to avoid any weird anonymous compliment mayhem. At the end of the month students have a number of nice things others have written about them to take home and cherish.  :)  Holiday gift finito!  These are included with the freebie above.  If you haven't already downloaded it, click here for the compliment freebie. (The Top 10 and compliment freebies are in the same download)

Cost: Varies
Crayons $15 for set of 12
Pencils $0.99 per set
Composition Notebooks $19.99 for 12 (cheaper if you get these during B2S time)
Time to Prepare: Personalized pencils 2 weeks, Crayons 2 days (with Amazon Prime), Notebooks (2 Days with Prime + 1 week to personalize)

If you have Amazon Prime or don't mind paying for shipping, these are my cheap go to supply gifts. {Amazon affiliate links ahead} At my school last year students were in desperate need of school supplies so they received new crayons for Christmas and at the end of the year.

I am also a big fan of buying Composition Notebooks at the Back to School Sales and saving them to give as New Writer's Notebooks for the new year.

I also love the personalized pencil sets from For Teachers Only, but you do have to order those in advance.
 

Gift Idea #5 Whole Class Gift

Cost: Varies
Time to Prepare: 2 Days with Amazon Prime (get it gift wrapped, ship it to your school, DONE!)

Gifts for the whole class are the gifts that keep on giving + you can open them up as a class and get excited about using them after the break! 

A few ideas for whole class gifts:
{Amazon affiliate links ahead}

*A new class game or PE equipment (Speed Stacks are great for inside recess and cross-lateral movement practice)
*Noise muffling headphones (a perfect addition to your classroom tools for centers or independent reading)
*Chapter books for the classroom library
*Pillows or lamps for your reading corner
*A class picture book or two.



Do you have another "Go to" online store for classroom supply shopping? Make sure you check to see if they are listed on Ebates to get cash back. If you're buying something online anyway, you might as well get cash back on it. {Ebates tip: I LOVE Ebates! Just make sure BEFORE you put items in your cart that you click through their site or activate the cash back button in your browser.  This is my affiliate link.}

 
I hope one of these gift ideas will work for you! Let me know what you decide to do in the comments!
