“Gifting Made Easy” by Gift Card Girlfriend
Both of my boys just finished playing another season of flag football. (We tried tackle with my oldest son a couple of years ago and I still regret it. Broken bones. Four of them. Too young.) Flag football may not be the same intensity of tackle, but it’s still hard work. And the coaches and volunteers who run the league more than deserve to be thanked.
Below is a simple football coach thank you gift that is easy to make and fun to give.
Football Coach Gift Card
For my son’s football coaches, I found three great pictures of their respective sons playing football. I had an action shot of the coach’s boy who played quarterback, scrambling out of the pocket, ready to unleash. I found a picture of the other coach’s son making a great defensive play. And I found a third photo of the last boy rushing the opposing quarterback. I uploaded those images and turned all three into personalized Visa gift cards.
(Find more image suggestions on our thanks coach gift page.)
If you’ve never given a personalized gift card to a coach, you absolutely must. This is my go-to thank you gift for coaches because the gift card is totally useful while still being commemorative of the season. If you don’t have great photos to use (check Facebook and Instagram to be sure), you can always use one of our predesigned football gift cards. The impact may not be the exact same, but it will still be the makings of a great gift for coach.

Free Downloadable for Football Coach
Below you’ll find a printable football quote that you can download and turn into a football coach gift card holder. For a personal touch and to add a memory of each kid, have the players sign the ball on the downloaded print. Then take the print and frame it or use Mod Podge to photo transfer it onto a canvas or wooden board. (And if you do that, let me know because I’ve only seen it on Pinterest–haven’t had time to try it myself.)
