Christmas Gifts for Students

Christmas Gifts for Students 1

Are you looking for Christmas gifts for students? Christmas gift exchanges are a treat for the whole class. Students will find joy in the giving and receiving of thoughtful gifts. These gifts can be inexpensive tokens or handmade items. The simplest gift can become extraordinary if you add a beautiful gift tag with some thoughtful wording on it.

Examples of Christmas gift ideas for students can be scented Smencils, Pop-It Keychains, coloring sets, scrabble name ornaments, bookmarks, and assorted stocking stuffers. I have to tell you that this is a candy-free post. No sweets at all. With all the allergies the little ones have lately, this is a safe and fun alternative to candy. This way, we can take pride in the fact that we are not contributing to the growing problem of obesity in children.

If you need free Christmas themed bag toppers or free Christmas gift tags, there are many printable ones (that are not for sweets) to be found here at TpT. I have linked some below, to pair them with other Christmas gift ideas for students.
