A Guide To Gifting the Homeschool





Ever thought of these concepts being mixed together?  I know that I look forward to the opportunity of gifting the Homeschool friend!  Whether the opportunity will arise from someone I’m close to beginning this new journey or perhaps a friend breaking way on a new school room for the family…I look forward to the opportunity to give!

May this guide serve to inspire you with ideas to give to the Homeschool family, friend, or family member!  I’m here to equip you with a wealth of inspiration and ideas!  Some of these are items I’ve found absolutely necessary in the schoolroom.  Others are things that I’d be very sad, and inconvenienced, to live without.  Even more, some of these items have been gifts given to us from Grandma, other family, or to our own family during Christmas!

I hope you will find a wide range of items, variety, and price here.

So without further ado…here is your Homeschool Gift Guide!

  1. Great ideas, Jennifer! I agree that gifting and homeschooling go together well. It’s great when we can get grandparents involved, too. When my boys were younger, I would compile a supply list which would include all sorts of stuff like brown paper bags and empty egg cartons that grandparents could pass along for us to use. I would also get together lists of things that we could borrow from them – like a cow bell, or a large hunk of leather… It allowed the grandparents to get involved with our homeschooling and it helped out this busy homeschool-mom-on-a-budget as well!

  2. Great ideas! I would also add copy paper and laminating sheets! (Can you tell what I need?! 😉 )

  3. Those are all great ideas!
