As the school year winds down, it’s time to start thinking about how to show our appreciation for the teachers who have worked tirelessly to educate and inspire our children.

Simple Gift Card DIY

My favourite thing to gift to teachers is gift cards, and I love finding creative and thoughtful ways to display them. One thing I've done in the past (which our teachers have really loved!) is asking the kids to describe their teacher in 3 (or more) words). I then place one gift card in each envelope, write one of the words on the front, and attach the cards to a plant. 

You can watch a quick clip of how I put this together here. It's thoughtful and looks really cute too! 


If DIYs aren't your thing, we've curated a selection of unique and thoughtful items from The TKL Shop that are sure to bring a smile to any teacher's face. Here are some of our top picks to help you say "thank you" in the most delightful way.
