In my nine years of leading a troop, I have never given gifts. Many of my girls already owned better technology than I do and traveled to places I have never visited. I always considered my gift to them the time and energy I put into being their leader.
If you do want to give your troop a gift, then please be sensitive (my post on having a holiday celebration during your meeting). Giving each girl an ornament is a fine idea if everyone in your troop celebrates Christmas. If you have a diverse group with different beliefs, then a gift that is not tied to any December holiday is what is most appropriate.
Here are some fun ideas that are not expensive, especially if you are splitting the cost with your co-leader.
This jewelry set comes with one necklace and one bracelet and the beautiful teal bag featured. How easy is this to give?
This set of 12 tea bag totes measure 6" x 6 " and have a 4 " handle. Fill with some chocolate and add a gift tag that reads, "We think you are pre-TEA awesome!"
Sundae Lip Gloss
Whether we like it or not, most little girls love to wear some kind of makeup so they appear to be more grown up. Lip gloss is an innocuous way for girls to get their makeup fix without really wearing makeup.
There are four different kinds of sundaes that you will receive in this set of one dozen. Each one measures about 2.25 inches. Simply adorable! Your girls are going to love this!
Cupcake Bubble Necklaces
Kids love bubbles. Girls love necklaces. Put the two together and you have this adorable gift that will certainly be a hit!
If you have fewer than 12 girls in your troop this works out to be a little more than a dollar a gift. Extras can be donated.
