Magnaflex Animals

A super reasonable gift and great to gift en-masse, these flexible magnetic tiles are a reasonably pried way to get kids creative. You can build owls, cats, dogs, turtles and more. The colours are super-appealing to kids, and the high-quality design means they won’t be easily broken by small, fiddly hands!

The sets are for anyone 4 and up, so this is another great choice for a kids’ party. Starter sets are really reasonable, so it’s a great and creative gift to get started with. Definitely a wonderful idea for small gifts for classmates, and something that is educational and fun.


Next on my list of small gifts for classmates, it’s BrickHeadz. Over the years, Lego has made a major comeback, and their new Brick Headz are no exception. If you’re looking for something that will go over well and get kids working together, these are a great choice. With a range of pop culture characters to choose from (like Batgirl!), these cute designs are only $10 a pop, so aren’t going to break the bank either.

They’re marked as ages 10 and up, so make sure they’re appropriate, but they tend to be massively popular when gifted to classmates! You may even prompt a new collector or two!

Funko Pops

If anyone is looking for a gift that will suit most people, a Funko Pop is a great choice for small gifts for classmates. With a little investigation, you can figure out who has interest in what element of popular culture and perfectly match a gift to them! For example, if you’ve got a class full of Disney fanatics, why not gift a selection of Disney themed Pops?

For example, this one of Olaf tends to be a crowd-pleaser, and looks great on a vanity or collectible shelf. Alternatively, major Marvel fans might appreciate these Funko Pops to build up a shrine to their favourite superheroes! The possibilities are endless, and they aren’t expensive either. These small gifts for classmates are fun and kids love them.

Bubble Kit

Next on my list of small gifts for classmates, it’s a bubble kit. If you’re looking for a way to kill an afternoon, why not gift your classmates a Bubble Wands Kit? Extremely popular amongst both kids and their parents, this can be super portable (get the mini ones) or get the giant one which is linked below as a fun group activity. Great as a birthday gift for a class party, this showstopper is bound to keep kids entertained for hours.

Dinosaur Shaped Wax Crayons

These dinosaur shaped wax crayons are sure to be a hit amongst classmates and are a great way to encourage creativity too! This pack comes with eight dinosaur shaped crayons that are guaranteed to provide hours of colouring fun.

If you’re creating an end of year gift for classmates, you can even create a card that says, ‘thanks for making the year so colourful’ and attach this to the crayons before gifting them. It’s a thoughtful touch that will make both parents and classmates smile. These are the most lovely small gifts for classmates, and so cute too!
