Gifts for coaches

Wondering if anyone has ideas on what i can get my daughters gymnastics coaches? She has one male (late 20's) who is her main coach, then an assistant coach (female late teens) and then the club owner (female 40's)

I'm really stumped what to get them! She spends over 30 hours a week at gym not including weekends away for comps, and they're like family. Food or unhealthy gifts are out, and I'm not sure what budget I should spend on them either. I'm inclined to spend more on her main coach but not so sure, thanks in advance!

We've spent £30 on my DDs main coach and £20 on assistant coach. Like yours my DD spends a very very large part of the week with them. The assistant coach has a voucher for Toby carvery as he is single and eats there regularly. Main coach has a voucher for a round of golf. Volunteers have a box of (half price!) M and S biscuits.
If I was buying for a woman I would probably have got an m and s gift card as can be used for a number of things.

Last year I bought them both a voucher for Go Ape - they went together and had a great time!

Have also bought vouchers for sports direct in the past. Sports people always find something to buy there!

I was going to say Costa cards but may be too unhealthy and not high value enough. John Lewis vouchers? Restaurant voucher? Even athletes like to eat out occasionally!
Do they have any interests outside of gymnastics?

I used to do a sport as an adult so was friends with several coaches. Some of their most treasured gifts were handmade cards from students (I know it sounds cliched but it's true!)

Is there something that would be useful for the hours they spend in the gym or at comps? Travel coffee mug, Starbucks voucher, diary/planner, overnight bag etc

My DD is a gym coach (late teens) and sweets and chocolate would be very happily received, as would Starbucks/Costa, etc vouchers grin

Depending on what you want to spend, how about an Amazon gift voucher/similar? Teens love spending money. Don't we all wink
