What's a good thank you gift for the people who helped me survive school?

I'm finally (FINALLY!) graduating from nursing school next week. It has been a very difficult process and I've had enormous amounts of help from a big, wonderful community of friends and family who have done everything from babysitting my kid (sometimes very early in the morning or for long periods) to helping with money to letting me cry on their shoulders.
I'll be having a graduation party next week, and I'd like to do something or give something to everyone to acknowledge how they made this possible for me. I'm going to do my best to give some individual gifts and attention to the people who were the most instrumental in making this happen - taking people out to fancy dinners etc - but I can't do that for everyone. What could I give away to everyone at the party that wouldn't just be some crap people will throw away?
Related but slightly different question - at times when you've helped someone - what kind of acknowledgment and appreciation feels good to you?
In other words, how can I thank everyone for being so awesome to me for so long?
