    its probably too late to do this but one year the team got a shirt from every race and made it into a quilt. it was cool. also you could do a blanket with the team picture on it. do a picture of a state with pictures from each race and show where the places youve went over the season

    We usually get our coach a gift card/certificate to "Red Lobster" because that's his favorite restaurant.

    red lobster is gooood.
    We buy ours something funny, like a wheelchair or a toupe because he's going bald and old.

    So something personal is nice. Like hurdle-gurl^

    Our coaches gifts:

    1. Hannah Montana picture frame with a picture of us holding our first ever first place plaque
    2. Stuffed Cat doll with collar and tag that read "Thanks Coach Donald...Kitty Cat '08"
    3. Large Construction cone signed by varsity saying "We have a solution"
    4. Art project that had a series of hands cut out with several of our inside jokes/sayings
    5. Visa Gift Card thing
    6. Eyepatch (deemed too offensive)

    I think thats it, all of them are inside jokes that would have to be explained; i can explain any if you wish

    My old coach last year recieved a bunch of Nike gear, since that is all she ever wore, and a scrapbook with pictures of the team, and the prs and other accomplishments she helped them set. I think you should make sure it's personal and not just some gift card, because that makes it look like you didn't try hard enough.
