Well.. if you're also struggling with a lack of time to finish your list of children's ministry tasks before Christmas and are still looking for an appreciation gift for your leaders, you might like to use this suggestion.
Download this file and print off these small cards that read 'Thank you for helping to make our ministry ring with excitement.' Attach a Christmas bell decoration to each and give to your leaders with perhaps a chocolate, as well. I found this huge bonbon at one of the cheaper stores and slipped all of the cards with bells attached inside, added some chocolates and retied the Christmas bows. At our final leaders' meeting for the year, I set it on the the table and told them that I wanted to give them a 'big thank you' for their work this year, but I knew that everything accomplished was a team effort with everyone doing their part. So the 'thank you' was also a team effort for everyone to open and share.
