...speaking of Christmas Presents...

I need to buy Christmas presents for 10 students this year (my music students that I tutor). Any ideas for a bulk gift? Last year I did home made sugar scrubs for the girls, and lots of cookies for the boy. I have also done 'snowman soup' in a mug, painted ornaments, made cookies...

any other ideas????

You may want to do one or two of those Burts Bees grab bags and split up the contents into small gift bags. I was really surprised at how many things are in the bags, and I am pretty sure I will need minimal stocking stuffers for DH, DD21, DS16 and "adopted"D21 besides what I already have in those grab bags.

Caramel corn? Kids love edibles.

For music students, pencils are great. My mother-in-law ordered from here:

You get 3 pencils with their name embossed on them. Personalized and very budget friendly.

How about pads of staff paper. Maybe it will inspire them to try their hand at writing. My boys always loved these.

Good you find some sort of inexpensive sheet music books or maybe even music for specials songs. I haven't priced music in a long time since my kids all play by ear.

You did not mention the age bracket but if they all have an ipod then an Itunes gift card for five or ten dollars might work and they would for sure use it.
