Gifts that are cheap and easy are the best kinds of gifts, but they should also be something fun that the kids will enjoy receiving. When my nephew’s school year ended, he came home with all kinds of goodies and he was super thrilled about it. Sixth graders are surely going to be a little harder to please than first graders, but there are still so many awesome ideas. Check these ones out!
