WHy don’t you make them some baked goodies/baskets either for the group meeting/individuals with personal notes for each person.

Going along sending something to their meeting, how about a small snack at their next get together. I’m thinking cookies or a selection of cakes or even just sweet breads and coffee/tea with a heartfelt thank you.

Could you bake things while you are at home and then freeze them? That way your mom could just defrost before the meeting and bring them with her on your behalf?

Why don’t you do an Edible Arrangement.  I think they ship anywhere and if you break the cost down between 12 people, it would be a lot cheaper than getting them each an individual gift.

I think that individual notes (even saying that you have no idea how you can really express how grateful you are) are the best think you can do for them.  An edible arrangement or something nice for the group as a whole would be nice, but I think you can also visit the group in person and say thank you thank you thank you again the next time you’re home.

And I hope your dad is doing alright with his chemo!

Could you have your mom bring in some goodies from a local bakery to their next meeting and have her express your thanks for all their help? Or, contact a local bakery and see if they deliver. I know several around us do. I also think an Edible Arrangement is a good idea. Another idea is a cookie or candy bouquet. If you google either of those, a lot of different options came up. My mom sent my bf and I a candy bouquet when we passed the bar exam and it was a great treat. 

either way, congrats on your wedding and you are lucky to have such wonderful people in your life to help you out like that! I hope your father is doing well.

I think hand written notes of appreciation will be more than adequate. It is so rare these days to get a letter(what with email, tweets, facebook etc) that I think I would value that way more than any cookie.

I’m sure they all understand that you have a lot on your plate and live 6 hours away.

You could even make a point of writing them again in a few months- enclose a pic and let them know that you appreciate the wedding they pulled together for you.
