I am often asked to offer simple ideas for small gifts that children can give their friends at the end of the school year.  Debbie, of Sugar Plum Designs, put together this collection for party favors, and I thought it would also be cute for end-of-year gifts.  Choose one or have a variety like Debbie did.  Just remember, the younger the children the better it is to only have one option!  It can be really hard for the littles to choose when everything looks equally tempting!

Debbie had Squared Party Printables design cute favor tags.  This is a great way to have customized paper accessories!  Shops will often customize for you and then you print as many as you need!

Offer Rock Candy sticks with a tag that reads, “Hope your summer ROCKS!” ~ or customize a candy bar wrapper to read as you like! 

Give homemade cookies to wish them a fun summer.  Or, a small bag of beach balls with a tag that reads, “Have a BALL this summer!”…

Candy Skewers and Push-up Pops are also novel ideas that kids love!  Fill them with treats that your child enjoys and watch the excitement of his or her friends as they receive such a thoughtful way to kick-off summer!  Enjoy!   Thank you, Debbie!
