Rush Hostess Gift Ideas?

Now that Rush has come to an end, we need to give tribute to our amazing Rush Hostesses. Does anyone have any good ideas to give to our hostesses as a thank you gift? We want to do something simple but meaningful. Thank you for your help!

I don't have an exact dollar amount, but not enough for something extravagant...

I don't have any idea where you are located, but if it is possible, a gift certificate to a lovely day spa is a good idea... facial, salt scrub, foot reflexology will help recharge her. You can probably get a nice package of services at a nice place for less than $200. Gives her the chance to be pampered & spoiled!

I'd love to do something like that, but we don't have that kind of budget since we have 15 hostesses :S...

Yikes!! Didn't know there were so many girls! I think if you woll give us at least a general idea of the budget, it will help with suggestions.

Hmmmmm.... probably $50-$100... It sounds really cheap I know but we're a small chapter so we just don't have the money. I'd love to do something mind-blowing for them since they deserve it and have done more than what we could ask for but unfortunately money is a major obstacle for us.

What about sending them a small arrangement of your sorority's flower with a very sincere, handwritten thank you card? If your sorority flower is not easy to find at a local florist, then perhaps you could do an arrangement that represents your sorority colors.

You say $50 - $100, so you are looking to spend about $7 per girl? If I'm reading that right, the only thing I can really think of in that range would be a nice card or one of those little boxes of fancy chocolates.

A really Q&D search turns up something like this.

Do you have a brother that can cook? (I don't mean ramen and microwave stuff, I mean actually cook) Invite them all over for a nice dinner. Like singing, a guy cooking is one of those things that females love.

A sincerely written thank you note and some flowers would be in your price range. When writing the note, mention specific things that you appreciated about each girl in her note. The little things go a long way!

Seriously, a handwritten card with baked goods delivered in front of her sisters or something? Golden!
