The Best Gifts for Coaches
It has been a very long season. The whole team has worked really hard. You may have won a championship or you may have lost. Regardless of the outcome of your season, one person has worked harder than anyone to make this season a success. You guessed it, the coach! The coach is always a winner in the eyes of her team. All the players want to show their appreciation but what do you get? Each coach is individual with different tastes but here are a few ideas that seem to work well with most coaches.
A Gift Card
Many people may balk at the idea of giving a gift card to a coach from the team, thinking it an impersonal gift. On the contrary, a gift card can be very personalized! How well do you know the coach? Is he a golfer? Does she travel a lot? Whatever particular interest your coach has, there is a gift card to match! Restaurant gift cards are excellent for busy coaches on the go who must often eat out. Another great gift card idea is free downloadable music. Music is a great method of relaxation and after a busy season, something a coach defnitely needs.
Personalize a gift from the team, such as a baseball signed by every member of the team or a monogrammed travel bag, also signed by all the players. T-shirts with the team’s picture are always a great idea. A scrap book with some action shots of the coach will be much appreciated. If you have taken videos of the games all season, put it together with some awesome music tracks in the background. Coaches really are sentimental. They love this stuff!
That’s right. She is ready to get away from all you players! Just kidding, but a trip away could be a blessing in disguise for a coach. Plan a trip for the coach and his spouse, if he is married, to any number of places. Some great ideas for trips are for sporting events the coach would enjoy watching. Movie tickets are a great idea for a coach's get away. You could even pay for a free night’s stay at some of the nation’s top hotel chains, so the coach can choose a time that is right for her. The coach will love you for thinking of him in this special way!
