With the holidays right around the corner I have gotten a few request for ideas of what to get as gifts for co-leaders, other leaders, parents and even girls in your troops. Well I don’t know about all you leaders out there, but my favorite place to find unique gifts that are perfect for leaders like us is Etsy. I find myself shopping for others and 2 or 3 things for myself end up in the cart.
So with that said this post is the 12 days of Christmas gift guide some of these are great for your other leaders in your troop, for your girls, or if you are doing the shopping why not buy one for yourself as well.
12 Days Of Christmas Gifts For Leaders
On the first day of Christmas I’m gifting a bracelet
This is a great gift for leaders and girls. The image shows with saying “She believed she COULD so she did”, which I think is great for girls and leaders. But this can be customized to say whatever you want it to say and you can pick different metal color as well. The fact you can customize the wording makes it a great gift even for multi-level troops.
On the second day of Christmas I’m gifting a t-shirt
When it comes to being a leader, we are all dedicated sometimes all we ever do is scouting right? That is why this gift is great for all the amazing leaders out there. We EAT, SLEEP, SCOUT, and REPEAT. You can get this in a variety of colors and its also unisex so even the dads will love this one if they are right into the program as well. If you have girls who feel the same again another great gift for the girls in your troop as well.
On the third day of Christmas I’m gifting a inspirational key chain
What leader does not love key chains? This one is another one of those easy to customize gifts. For the leader you could keep it like the sample with LOVE LEAD INSPIRE and the troop number.

So this really will be unique based on what you want to say about your leaders or This girls.
