As my daughter left one class behind to join another I made cards for her teachers. I always enjoy using online templates to create custom cards with personalized messages or meaningful photos. These cards proclaimed:
“Thank you for showing me the way!”
I teamed each of them with a Photo Gift Card of her wearing an elephant hat – keeping with the classroom theme – adding the tag line “Terrific Teacher” under their names. Gift cards always seem rather lacking on the imagination front, but of course they’re so appreciated! By adding a photo that speaks to the recipient, and an apt phrase, the gift becomes much more heartfelt and appreciated.
These customizable Visa gift cards have lately become one of my favorite presents to give. They’re easy to mail (inside a carefully crafted card), they allow the receiver to spend them on anything they want, and they’re rather unexpected, always bringing out a smile.
