I have been teaching for 20 years so this has happened to me in the past. I understand how upset you are. One of the things that upset me was the student's reaction.

My students this year were unimpressed with their gifts because "We got this last year" and "My blanket last year had footballs on it" or "I got my favorite color last year" i am going to have to do something new or I wll continue to be upset about it year after year.

This I would use as a teachable moment on gratitude. I find what your students said was more rude. I was raised when someone gives you something you should not complain and always say thank you.

I hope you find peace with the situation.
