“Thank you for being an amazing teacher.”

Print this 5×7 Amazon gift card printable on cardstock paper. Cut it out. Then adhere the gift card to the card (I just used removable double sided tape). Then you can write your name at the bottom, or have your child write their name, or write a message on the back. Whatever you prefer. Jazz it up even more by tying a ribbon or twine around the card.
