Just my thoughts

(24 years middle school) - Unless you intend to write a nice thoughtful note to each student I would not take the time for this. I think you will end up resenting the time and money when, based on how you feel already plus how they behave, most simply show no sincere expression of gratitude for your thoughtfulness.

Perhaps you can spend your time coming up with a fun holiday activity instead or something simple as a gift. Several years I gave the students a little bag of seeds that I put together. I bought a mixed bag of seeds and one of those little tiny plastic bags. Added a few different labels about planting the seeds of Christmas trees. Some will grow the tree and others will pitch the seeds, but I also told them to at least pitch the seeds outside and maybe they will grow. (And you will feel all the better for helping to plant some seeds, both as trees and as curiosity in students.)
