Creative way to give teacher gift card

I need a easy, creative way to give a gift card to my ds's teachers. I don't have a crafty bone in my body so this needs to be an easy project. BTW I got them a gift card to Lakeshore (teachers store).

Any ideas would be appreciated!

How about taping it to the back of a large Hershey bar, a box of Fiddle Faddle, or a box of candy canes? Or you could buy a mug to put it in and fill the mug with Hershey kisses?

(this you might fill up with pencils, markers, pens, etc for her to keep on her desk and stick the gift card to it?)

My husband also received a gift card inside a BIG jar full of his favorite (peanut M&M's). Maybe fill a jar of her favorite wrapped candy and just stick the card inside?

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

What a great gift!!

Don't make yourself crazy. Have your son write each a note telling why he enjoys their class, or you write one telling them what a difference they've made in his life. Include the gift card, and you're done.

Great simple ideas! Our local news ran a story the other day about the top teacher gifts, and simple note or card of appreciation was one of them (as was gift cards), and they interviewed several teachers who also said, a note of appreciation was what they liked to receive. Couple that with your gift card, and I think you'll have hit a home run!

As a teacher, I have to agree that the heartfelt notes from parents or students are the most meaningful gifts
