Do your kids give gifts/cards to the schoolfriends?

My 3 kids (Year 2, Year 1 and preschool) give cards to their schoolfriends with little candy canes in them. I don't know when the candy cane thing started - but that's what they want to do, and I figure it's not too painful. No gifts though.

My kids have never given Christmas gifts to school friends apart from the" candy cane inside the card" thing. The problem with giving gifts to school friends is where to stop?

Yes, mine do.
DD#1 usually either does candy canes or little Santa Chocolates with cards. Last year she did tiny little gift bags for her closest friends with a candy cane, chocolate and cute little tree ornament.
DD#2 & DD#3 do candy canes or Santa Chocolates with cards.
They get similar back from classmates/friends. DD#1 still has a tiny little light up Santa thing that a friend gave her one year.

They usually exchange cards. Some of the gifts DD has recieved have been: christmas baubles, chocolates, christmas pencils with big shaped erasers on top, candy canes. TBH I hate lolly gifts because of the additives and not everyone wants their kids eating lollies every day. Call me a scrooge but it seems that every day in December DD gets given some treats and it drives me crazy because I look like a mean cow if I tell her not to eat it. I guess that's a whole other thread though! As you were.

I found some cute Christmas erasers and pencils in the Reject shop so the kids are handing them out to classmates. Something different to the 20+ candy canes that they receive each.

Candy canes all the way here. That's what they want, that's what they get. Crafty tweeness would be totally wasted on kids at out school.

My kids are at daycare. Both girls have asked if they can give a xmas gift to a (best) friend. I have said yes, but will organise a playdate closer to xmas for the gift exchange. Other mums on board as well (gift limit is $10). Older DD (5.5yo) wants to give a few cards away as well, which is fine.

The kids give out packages of reindeer food to there friends although 7yo DS asked to give out reindeer noses this year. This year he also asked if he can give his best friend a present and of course 4yo DD wanted to do the same so we will go shopping for those in the next week or so.
