Every year, I struggle with what to give my students as a token of my appreciation for their hard work when the holidays roll around. I know that giving gifts is not something that I as a studio owner have to do, but it’s something I have enjoyed since I first started out with only a handful of students.
Now that my studio has reached upwards of 50, that complicates my gift-giving efforts just a bit. The homemade DIY gifts I used to give were time consuming and on the expensive side, and even just a few dollars per student adds up quickly.
So in the last two years since my studio exploded (in a good way), I’ve come up with a couple different gift ideas that are practical both financially and time-wise.
