How to pick the best Christmas gifts for classmates
If you’re shopping for an entire classroom, it’s not a bad idea to get everyone the same thing — or at least the same items with minor differences between them, like colors. That way, no one feels left out or disappointed. If the group is a small friend group, broaden your search and make the gifts a little more personalized.
What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for classmates?
A great way to extend a kind holiday gesture to your classmates without spending a fortune is to make the gifts yourself.
- Holiday-themed goodie bags. Fill a festive bag, mug or other small container with age-appropriate goodies like candy, stickers and other small trinkets.
- Cookies, brownies or other homemade treats. You can’t go wrong with some delicious baked goods. Just make sure there’s no one in the class with a food allergy and tweak your recipes accordingly if so.
- Reindeer hot chocolate packets. Fill a plastic baggie with hot chocolate mix and marshmallows, then roll it up to look like a reindeer’s face, add a red nose, eyes and antlers, and you’ve got an adorable holiday gift for the whole class.
- Customized keychains. Buy a bag of clear plastic keychains and have your child personalize them for each member of the class.
