I was a cheerleader through high school and college up til last year. Throughout the years I've received all kinds of things. One year they decorated small canning jars with cheerleading quote stickers and scrapbooking stickers. They put cloth on the top that was school colors with our name on it. Then they filled the jar with candy. It made a nice centerpiece and at the end of the night you found your name and took it home.
Other things they did was decorate a 1/2 gallon milk jug by spray painting it our school colors then decorating with stickers and photos and they had our names and balloons and ribbons tied to the handle. We got to take those home too at the end of the night.
My college coach was a fan of getting the cheap plain plastic frames from wal-mart and personalizing them with our names or a quote or something from the year and then inserting a squad photo.
Another thing she did was took cheap large picture frames and made an arrangement of photos that had each of us separately or doing something funny in it. Each one was made just for the person it was going to. That one was one of my favorites.
Hope that helps.
