Inexpensive Leader Appreciation Gifts
Need a gift idea to show your co-leaders your appreciation for their help during the year? I have published posts describing gifts we have made to give some of the special adults in our daughters' lives, but I have never shared how we thank our co-leaders for supporting our Girl Scout family.
For the past six years, I have purchased Christmas ornaments from Michaels for the co-leaders of our troop. There is a large assortment of designs available, and the ornaments are always on sale this time of year ($2.50 each). The troop picture was printed at Walgreens this year, and I received four wallet-sized photos in the order. This was the first time I've printed a picture straight from my smartphone. Super quick and easy!
We don't purchase Christmas gifts for the girls in our troop. Instead, they decided to have a Cookie Exchange. They seem to really enjoy baking at home and bringing their treats to the meeting to share with each other.
For those troop leaders who do give their girls gifts, consider these ornaments. They are relatively inexpensive, and each girl's ornament could feature a troop photo or include individual pictures of the girls in their Girl Scout uniforms. For troops with larger budgets, this ornament could also serve as a cute embellishment for a larger present.
Our Juniors will earn their Drawing badge next week, so I hope you'll check back. Thank you for reading.
