YUMMY {& easy} parent volunteer gift!

The end of the school year is fast approaching {YAY} and I just realized this weekend that I need to get all my parent volunteer "thank you gifts" together! I always try not to procrastinate stuff like this, but sometimes I just can't help it. I have so much going on at school and at home, so this year I had to keep it simple.

I picked up a whole LOT of candy at the grocery store and came up with this:

I know my parent volunteers don't expect anything in return, but I still want them to know how much I appreciated their help all year! I have the best volunteers and I couldn't have done it without them!

Looks like I need to go back to the store tomorrow and get more candy...
DANGIT! If there is chocolate in the house, IT WILL GET EATEN.

How do you tell your parent volunteers that you appreciate them? 
If you have a blog post about it, leave it in the comment section and I'll add it to my list! :)


  1. I love your sign! You should link up with my end of the year gift linky party. It's for student and volunteer gifts so this fits right in.


  2. Love the treat one! I have one super mom that I'm using Rachelle's You're a cut above the rest. Instead of scissors I got her a $50 gift certificate to her salon.

  3. I found a cute tag on Pinterest that says "Thank you for your helping hands." and I attached that to a gift card for a manicure.

  4. That is a cute idea!! I know what you mean about candy being in the house--especially Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...the temptation is too much! LOL :)

  5. I love this {and the others from the other girls too!!!!}. I have so many parent helpers there's no way I could do manicures or haircuts....

    Thanks bunches for this sweet and simple treat!!!!!

  6. For my volunteers this year, I filled reusable cups with lids full of "Million dollar Mints" wrapped with a label that looked like a million dollar bill. I found the mints at Dollar Tree! I attached a ribbon and a little tag that said,"Thanks a million! Your help really "mint" a lot!". You can see my post at http://www.aroundthekampfire.blogspot.com/2012/05/little-sprout-of-blog.html

    Thanks so much!

  7. I'm kind of lazy that way ... I just give them Starbucks cards ... and a hug :))
