Inexpensive Daisy Girl Scout Troop Gifts

Updated November 2019

It's that time of year when it officially sinks in that the holiday gift giving season is upon us. We could ignore the Christmas decor that arrived in stores the day after Halloween (or was it the weeks before trick or treating?), but with Rankin Bass Christmas and Peanuts Christmas specials already airing, your co-leader and you need to have a talk and discuss whether or not you are going to give gifts to your troop for the holiday season.

Ideas for gifts that leaders can give their troop.

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.

Jalousie 12 Sets Deluxe Girls Party Favor Jewelry Collections of Necklace and Bracelet

Jalousie 12 Sets Deluxe Girls Party Favor Jewelry Collections of Necklace and Bracelet-Great gift for Daisy leaders to give their girls.

This jewelry set comes with one necklace and one bracelet and the beautiful teal bag featured. How easy is this to give? 

Tea Party Tote Bag Assortment

12 tea Party tote bags. Fill with candy and give as gift with a note that says, "We think you are preTEA awesome!"

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.

Sundae lip gloss comes with four different styles-12 total to a package. This is an adorable gift to give your troop.

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

Set of 12 cupcake bubble necklaces make a fun and inexpensive holiday gift to give your troop

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. 

Are you giving your troop a gift from you this year?
