For a unique reward system, pick your child’s favorite theme and personalize the text with “Thank You for Doing an Amazing Job” to use them as a rewards for helping with household chores or completing a series of tasks. When your child collects a predetermined amount of picks, they can trade them in for a special treat. This gives your child something to work toward as well as a lesson in counting as they work to a goal.

Businesses have also ordered personalized cupcake picks to offer their employees an easy way to recognize their co-workers for going above and beyond their daily duties. Or hand out creative to-do’s to promote a cohesive team like one medical center in Georgia did. They personalized numerous sets of picks to say “Tell another EE how valuable they are.” “Thank a Chaplain for what they do in front of the patient!” “Tell a patient that nurse does a great job!” “Find a new employee and welcome them!” and “At shift change, tell patient that the next nurse is exceptional!”

Whether personalized with a phrase expressing your gratitude, given as a special task or left blank so the giver could write their own message, cupcake picks have a variety of uses beyond adorning baby shower cupcakes or birthday party treats.
