Whether this journey of digital teaching has been rougher than expected or smoother than predicted, we all deserve to celebrate the end of the school year! These 5 end of year student gift ideas are great options to make the end of the year memorable for everyone.
Put all the pictures you take of your students learning over the year to good use by turning your entire class picture into a fun Classgram!
Next, make this a team effort! Have your students brainstorm and vote on your “Classgram” handle. You can share the details or keep the final product a surprise.
Classgram makes the perfect and easy end of year student gift! You can individualize them for each student or create the same one for everyone! Print the pages to distribute to your students as a class yearbook and pass them out at your end-of-year celebration or last day of school.
Your students (and you!) will treasure this simple gift for the next year and many years to come.
2. Game Day
Taking a day off to play games makes a great gift for you class!
Kahoot! offers thousands of quizzes and is accessible from any device. Select from a variety of topics like video game trivia or Disney movies. You also have the option of creating your own Kahoot! with questions about your students and memories from the year.
Host a Kahoot! Live with your class once your games are ready to go. Your students will love this end of the year student gift, but you’ll also appreciate the fun memories you'll create when playing together.

Add your own images to these editable awards, including your personalized Bitmoji! Then, share them during your end-of-year celebration or promotion/graduation ceremony. These student awards will make the best end of year gifts.
4. DIY Personalized Notes
Sending handwritten letters to your students adds a special personal touch. While this gift requires more time and effort, it allows you to communicate with your students in a meaningful way.
Head to the Dollar Store or Target Dollar Spot to grab what you'll need then personalize your letters with a special message and by thanking your students for their specific contributions to your class. One of my favorite things about DIY personalized notes is that this end of the year gift will remind your students that they are loved and valued.
At the end of each year, I create end of the year memory books for my students as a great way to commemorate the school year. I also include my students' selfie writing at the back of each book. I use my binding machine to fasten each student’s completed pages together. My students always love this special gift!
You can print these memory books out and pass them out to your students or share them digitally with students and their families with a Google link.
While any of the above options will be special for your students, remember that the memories you and your students have created are the most important gifts. Make this your focus, and you'll be sure to end this time of year on a positive note!
