Choosing meaningful gifts for your children doesn’t have to be complicated. Many of you, like myself, are on a quest to find homeschool gifts that have a purpose. Long gone are the days of loading up on toys that will break soon after gifting them. But what types of gifts can you give and make that our children will remember and use well?
We have a few ideas for gifts to give homeschoolers and gifts your homeschoolers can make. Anytime! So, if you need ideas for birthdays, holidays, or Christmas, keep reading. We have some ideas that will help you get the most bang for your buck while blessing your homeschool.
The Best Gifts to Give Homeschoolers
Gift An Annual Homeschool Art Membership
I have been homeschooling for almost thirteen years as I write this, and I am often asked about gift ideas for homeschoolers. There is one gift that I always recommend. Hands-down, an annual membership to YOU ARE AN ARTiST. It is a gift that keeps on giving all year long.
Whether you gift it for a birthday or a Christmas gift, your family can use it every day for the entire year with an annual membership. That, my friends, is valuable!
Another tremendous benefit of gifting a membership at YOU ARE AN ARTiST is that you can purchase one annual membership, and the entire family can use it. No matter how many kids or grandkids you may have at home. How cool is that?
It is also a gift that you can feel good about. Your gift recipient receives the gift of art, and experiencing art is priceless. And, you can add art into just about any homeschool lesson! Gifts like an art membership keep giving long beyond most store bought toys.
A membership is a huge benefit to your homeschool. We are eclectic homeschoolers and use ours every week. I am also a huge fan of how easy it is to plan art and incorporate it into our homeschool days.
Need to mail your gift or send it via e-mail to someone? No problem! You can also choose a printable gift certificate that is lovely enough to present in a card or gift box so that there is something to open. Even if your gift recipient is miles away, you can gift them an art membership from YOU ARE AN ARTiST. Remember when family members ask what they can give your children, an art membership might be perfect for your homeschool family.
Give YOU ARE AN ARTiST Merch
Yes, YOU ARE AN ARTiST has merch! So if you already have an art membership, you can surprise your favorite homeschoolers with Nana’s signature merch.
When my kids received their YOU ARE AN ARTiST t-shirts, they were thrilled! Like so many of you, my kids adore Nana. She comes into our home each week, and it is like she is a part of our family. I know many of you feel the same way too. So imagine your children’s delight as they receive a t-shirt or mug with “I AM AN ARTiST” on it!
With plenty of merch items to choose from, you can grab one for yourself too! I especially love drinking from my chalkpastel.com mug during all of our special art sessions and tea times together.
