End of year volunteer gift

I always spend a fair amount of time deciding how to honor my classroom helpers at the end of the school year. What will be cute, useful, not too expensive (this year I had 10 to prepare), but also semi-substantial enough to match efforts made? (Although, a gift that matches the parents dedication and effort is a pretty TALL order)! I would need to be a multi-millionaire.

I am excited with this years offering.  I think they would look extra pretty filled with flowers!
The pitchers are actually plastic and available now at Target in the patio area, as are the black and white striped tags. The scalloped labels (which I used a glue stick to attach to the striped cards) I got at Micheal's, which is also where I got the ribbon.

I hope someone finds this useful. Now - back to report cards!

I love this idea!!! So cute. You are thoughtful to do this. Kate's teacher gave me one this year but that was a first and I have been a room Mom for as long as I can remember.

I hope you do well with the exercise challenge. it is tough to start but after a few days you'll be so glad you did!!!

Oh my gosh this is so cute! We don't have classroom parents (wish we did) but I know I can find some folks who would love this!
