Student gift idea #1

T-Shirt Yearbooks

To buy: 1 white t-shirt for every student + 2-3 sets of fabric markers

Price: $2 per t-shirt, $6.50 per set of fabric markers

Total: $3-$4 per student

Purchase a white tee for every kiddo and then have an around-the-room activity where each student signs/draws a picture on every shirt.

Now your kiddos will have a pajama shirt for life (size up!) and a cute souvenir from their school year for around $3-$4 per kiddo.

Student gift idea #2

Water Bottle & Waterproof Sticker

To buy: 1 water bottle per student + 1 set of waterproof stickers

Price: $60 for 24 water bottles, $7 for 100 stickers

Total: $3-$4 per student

Grab a bulk set of plastic water bottles and some waterproof stickers and student gifts are complete.

The waterproof stickers come in giant packs, so you’ll have tons left over to fill up your treasure box for next year. 

Student gift idea #3

Flower Pot & Seeds

To buy: 1 pot + seed pack/seed paper for each student

Price: $40 for 30 3-inch pots, $20 for 100 seed papers

Total: $2-$3 per student

Get pots for every student to decorate with colorful Sharpie markers, and toss in some seed packets or seed paper to create a cute summer flowerpot gift.

This idea doubles as an easy art project for the last week of school, and is also a great option to give to parent volunteers.  

Student gift idea #4

Scrabble Nameplate

Price: $22 for 1,000 letter tiles, $12 for 12 letter racks

Ready for some DIY fun? It’s time to grab the glue gun! Get a class set of tile holders and a large set of letter tiles. Then, you’re an hour or two + a few burnt fingers away from a class set of personalized Scrabble nameplates.

Just glue the letter tiles to the letter rack, run your fingers under some cold water, and student gifts are done!

Student gift idea #5

Book & Magnetic Bookmark

To buy: 1 book + 1 bookmark for each student

Framed Class Picture

To buy: 1 frame for each student + printed class picture

Price: $2 per frame, photo printing fees ($2 with online coupon for 8×10 print)

Snap a cute class pic and get it framed. Print out the 8×10 pics at a local Walgreens since you know the school’s color printer isn’t up to the job. Then, grab frames on Amazon (they’re 12 for $24) and you’re set.

Student gift idea #7

Twisty Straw and Drink

Student gift idea #8

Popsicle Holder + Otter Pop

Student gift idea #9

Bubble Wands

To buy: 1 bubble wand per student

Student gift idea #10

Our Class Word Cloud

To buy: white card stock + laminating pouches

Price: $5 for 75 sheets of Astrobrights cardstock, $17/100 laminating pouches, 1-2 hours of your time

Total: Under $1 per student

Use the names of all the students in your class to create a word cloud. Then print it out on cardstock and laminate.

Kids love finding their names and, because there’s very little personalization involved, these are minimal work for you.

There are a number of online resources to create word clouds, but wordclouds.com is my favorite. Here you can personalize your colors, fonts, shape, and background for free!
