Do you give your students gifts at the end of the year? I’ve done so many things over the years, but reusable water bottles are probably my most reoccurring gift idea. This year I put end of the year gifts together for Joelle’s 4th grade class. Her teacher gave me a couple of ideas and I got to work!
Dollar Tree always has the most affordable gift ideas for teachers. There were so many water bottles to choose from. Some of the other options that I saw came in a three pack which would make it even more affordable!
Here are all of the supplies that I used to make the student gifts. I’ll put the links below.
Duck Tape Packing Tape: This is my all-time favorite packing tape. Click HERE to find it on Amazon. It is SOOOO much better than the Scotch brand. I’ve used it for years to hang up student work on the walls. It withstands humidity so much better than the others.
I used tape to secure the straws and drink mix to the water bottle before tying the ribbon. I also used it to attach the tag.
Here’s how I attached the tags. I put a roll of packing tape on the tag. Then I just sat the water bottle on top. It attached perfectly!
Now the gifts are all ready to go! I hope you enjoyed this quick idea. It cost under $40 to make 24 student gifts… not too shabby!
