Student Gift Inspo From Kmart

Sometimes, it feels overwhelming with all the gifts you need to buy at Christmas time, let alone the cost of it all.

This post is dedicated to the gems you can find at Kmart this year (this is not sponsored, just written to be helpful).

It is always nice, but definitely not necessary, to get your students a little something for Christmas or as an end-of-year gift. Although, it can get mighty expensive when you are buying for a class of 30!

We are all about giving students something thoughtful that doesn’t break the bank.

Lets’ go… 5 gift ideas from Kmart!

1. Foam gliders

This has been the best investments of $3.50 I have made for my own kids all year. They are a hit with kids of all ages (and truthfully every adult that comes to visit us wants a go too). It is an idea that is out of the box but super fun.

Disclaimer: Unless you love fetching items from the roof or high up in the canopy of your playground trees, ask students to keep they planes in the box until they get home.

As Aussies, a hat never goes astray over the summer. Kmart has some great cap choices for just a couple of dollars. You could give them to your class and let them wear them as a class team out at lunchtime.

Here are our top picks:

Black baseball cap $3

Pink baseball cap $3

Rainbow cap $5

3. Photo frame Christmas decoration

For $2 each, these photo frame Christmas decorations are a winner. We have 2 suggestions on how you use these:

1. Write something special about each student inside the frame

2. Take a selfie with you and each of your students, print them and put them inside (I did this one year for my kindergarten class and 15 years later when I run into parents at the local shops, they still mention it!)

4. Prepackaged Loot Bags

This idea is a TIME SAVER! Kmart has just brought out these pre packed gift bags. They are ideal for kids to take out to a café, on a long car ride or just to enjoy at home. Simply purchase the unicorn or dinosaur theme and you are good to go. They come in packs of 4, so they work out to be $2.25 per child!

5. Why I love being your teacher card

Our final suggestion isn’t directly Kmart related but it is very affordable and from the heart. Create our 10 reasons why I love being your teacher for your students (grab your free copy here), add a candy cane and you are done!

You can create an individual one for each child or if you are short on time, make a class one!

We hope you got some inspiration on how you can treat your students this Christmas without breaking the bank!
