Wow, that is something. No advice though. That is new to me. It does seem cool, if it were a "before the big game" thing. I hope you let us know what happens!!!

Thanks Ramona. My SIL, who is much more creative than I am, came up with a bunch of great suggestions. I passed them along to Jordyn and we are going to talk this weekend to decide what we want to do.

Tracy, our swim team relays do something similar. Each relay member gives the other three members of the relay a gift. Last season Megan found inexpensive cotton shorts and we bought iron on letters at Michael's and put the girls' names or initials on them. What about an inexpensive cosmetic bag or tote for the girls to put makeup, hair stuff, etc in? We've done towels with names on them too though that might not be relevant to your situation. Megan got a Vera Bradley id case one year. I checked it out online later and they were sale patterns that cost about $6 a piece.

We actually looked at a few of these options. My SIL found me a ton of cute stuff on ebay and some wholesale site she uses and there were around $2.50-3.00 each, so it would have been around $75.00 total. I am going to keep them in mind for next year when Jordyn moves up to the level 5 senior team which will only have about 12 members and I can put more thought and planning into it. We ended up doing chocolate suckers. I'll have to pull a picture of them to post, they turned out really cute!

Way cute Tracy! Sounds like the perfect thing and just the right price point. I've found buying multipacks of things like Lip Smackers can keep prices reasonable too.
