Creative Ways to Give Teachers a Gift Card

creative ways to give a gift card

*Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10th.*

As much as we might want to score points as the coolest mom in the class by giving our Happy Buddies’ teachers handmade crayon monograms, 7-layer cakes, or pencil bouquets, the reality is that the best thing to get a teacher is…

A gift card.

I don’t like giving gift cards because there is nothing super glamorous about sticking one in an envelope and handing it over.

But when I saw how these amazing bloggers used giving gift cards as an opportunity to get creative, I had to share!

  1. Brilliant ideas! It’s funny how different cultures see things. A gift card would not be acceptable in uk. It’s too close to cash. Which has undertones of bribe, payment in kind and power. Gift cards are mainly acceptable from an older generation to a child or grand child here. it would defo be very awkward. Mothers day type gifts that a child might pick out is the fate of teachers here.
