The symbol of the rainbow is related to lots of meanings. We can find it as the symbol of the LGBTQ community; in spiritual paths as colours of chakras; with ‘Thank you NHS’ or ‘Thank you Teacher’ motifs and even more ancient meanings about which I have had no idea. You know the joy you feel when you see a rainbow? Wouldn’t it be amazing to pass that joy to someone special? It’s a great gift that’ll put a smile on anyone’s face. It’s a perfect way to add a touch of colour to the commonly gloomy cloudy days. Or a great way to say thank you to a teacher, a friend, or perhaps a loved relative.
