Thank you gift for little league coaches

We just played our last game of the season. I would really like to give the coach and 2 assistant coaches a thank you gift. They were so wonderful this year and I think they get forgotten too often! Any ideas?

Coach gifts...

I was a softball team mom for 3 seasons and had to do this for our banquet at the end of season.
How abut checking out some trophy shops and getting them a special plaque. They usually start at $3.95 and go up. They can be engraved and are really nice. You can even get a plaque with a picture frame attached and put the team picture in it,
Also you could purchase a gift certificate at ther favorite resturant.
If you want to give something personal from the whole team... You could get the kids to write something nice and draw around it and then take it to an office max or someplace that does binding and make the sheets into a book for the coach.
One year we scheduled a day to meet with the team (without coachs knowing it) and made a thank you video. The parents and kids all said a few things about the year and the coaches and their thank you's. At the beginning of the tape was some of the things we'd done throughout the season (practices, car washes, games and sleepovers ect.).
This was a huge success with the parents, the kids and the coaches!
Good luck! Wild

My husband and I coach baseball together and this year the parents gave us a gift certificate and card for one of the local restruants. (The mom said it was cause she figured with the coaching we done in the past and also having 4 kids that we had trophies and plaques all over the place, she was right) Also in the past we gave a plaque to one of our kids coaches. It had the team pic on it and with screen printing they managed to get all the kids singnatures on it.
May God Bless and Guide Us

My husband coached little league this year and the team mom gave him a cute silver picture frame with the team photo in it. She had the kids sign around the frame with black marker. He also got a baseball signed by all the players in a nice display case. Both were great!
