Teacher’s Day is celebrated on October 5 not only in our country, but also in many other countries of the world. Hover, Russian teachers and schoolchildren have a special attitude to this holiday, it is associated with long-term traditions. One of them is to give gifts to teachers in gratitude for their hard work. But what exactly to give for Teacher’s Day 2023? Here are some options
When choosing what to give for a teacher’s day, it is important to remember: the present should not only please the teacher, but also be appropriate and not put anyone in an awkward position. Therefore, focus on a few important rules.
Firstly, nothing very expensive and large-scale (recall, by the way, that the Civil Code generally limits the allowable value of a gift for an educator to 30 $).
Secondly, it is desirable to present a collective present, from the whole class. Just remember that parents should donate money only if they wish — if someone refuses, they have every right to do so.
So, what to give for Teacher’s Day 2023 if you are tired of flors and sets? Here are some ideas.
Top 25 Gift Ideas for Teacher’s Day 2023
1. Coffee machine or coffee maker
If a useful gift is also added to the congratulation, then the teacher will remember this Teacher’s Day with warmth for many years to come. Our option is a coffee machine. A delicious invigorating drink in the morning will help the teacher get ready for the lessons, and a modern device will make the process of preparing it simple and fast.
The gift will appeal not only to teachers of literature. With an e‑book, you no longer have to carry heavy volumes of reference books and manuals with you — I loaded everything you need into a device that can easily fit in your purse — and no problems. You can use it at any time — no Internet access is required, the charge holds for a long time. And during a trip on vacation it will come in handy: you just need to replace the dictionaries with the works of your favorite writers.

3. Telescopic pointer
Makes a great versatile gift for any teacher. They vary in por, are available in steel or plastic cases, and can have beams of various colors. For teachers, it is more logical to choose red, but you can, on the contrary, stop at something more original. There are even models with nozzles that allow you to change the beam dispersion. Just before buying, check that the pointer is convenient to use, and make sure of the quality of the product, because you want your gift to serve the teacher for a long time.
4. Table lamp
Another classic gift option, the popularity of which does not fade over the years. Of course, all information today can be found on the Internet, but, firstly, the reliability of data on the network is sometimes doubtful. And secondly, it is pleasant to hold a colorfully designed book in your hands!
5. Beautiful or personalized pen
Another option for a “professional” gift is an expensive pen from a prestigious company. Like it or not, teachers cannot do without writing utensils, and a beautiful pen will always be needed. If you order a small, not conspicuous engraving on it, then the gift will generally acquire an exclusive character.
An indispensable thing in the era of modern technology. Any teacher is constantly in touch with parents, students and colleagues. Calls, chats in messengers — before you have time to look around, the battery indicator flashes red. Wireless charging comes to the rescue, which can lie right on the teacher’s desktop — while the lessons are going on, the phone is charging, even if the cord from it is left at home.
7. Set gift
Order a set gift for the teacher — a cake or a set of designer cookies. It can be decorated with a class designation — 2A, 4B, and so on — or the school crest, if you have one. A good option is a set of healthy sets: nuts, marshmallows, honey and jam. Such a gift can be assembled independently, or you can choose a ready-made set.
8. Flor in a pot
Not everyone loves cut flor bouquets. In this case, a potted plant would be a good alternative. Firstly, it will decorate the teacher’s apartment or office for a long time. Secondly, from the whole variety, you can choose plants that do not require special care. Thirdly, you can choose both floring and non-floring options. Solid pluses!
9. Painting for needlework
A gift that will help to have a pleasant evening and decorate the room. Busy people often find it difficult to find time for hobbies and hobbies. Therefore, a gift for creativity can be very useful. Pictures for embroidery with threads, for coloring, for laying out with rhinestones — there are a lot of options. Just choose the appropriate option and let the teacher enjoy the creative process and the result.
An indispensable thing in most cities (if are not talking about coastal ones). The modern pace and rhythm of life often do not give us the opportunity to monitor the favorable atmosphere in the house, and the urban environment does not provide housing with a sufficient level of moisture. Therefore, a humidifier will be a wonderful gift for a teacher. There are many options with a variety of functions: with cooling or heating the air, purification from unwanted impurities, maintaining a certain level of humidity, and so on.
It may seem to many that this is the same as a humidifier, hover, this is not the case. A diffuser is a separate device designed for mixing aroma oils. Such units are electric or independent. Electric ones work from the mains and spread the smell by heating the oils. Independent ones are sold in beautiful jars that will help decorate the interior. To spread the smell, just open the bottle, but most often they come with special sticks that can be used to enhance the aroma.
12. Decorative pillow
A cozy pillow can fit into any interior. Choose non-standard options — today you can find a variety of pillows: in the form of an orange slice, a cake, a cat or a planet. You can build on the specialization of the teacher: a biologist — in the form of a leaflet, a teacher of the Russian language — in the form of a letter. A teacher of any specialty can make a personalized pillow with a print — for example, with the inscription “Best Teacher”.
We all want to make a nice gift that will delight the recipient. But it is often incredibly difficult to make a choice and decide on something, especially if you do not know the person very closely. In this case, you can give the teacher a certificate to the jelry store. The teacher will be able to choose a product to his taste — such a gift will please the teacher for a long time.
14. External battery
An indispensable thing for every modern person. Allows you not to think about where to urgently recharge the phone during the day. This is especially important if the teacher goes, for example, on an excursion or on a hike. The gift is useful not only in school days, but also in everyday life.

15. Large soft blanket
This pleasant gift will warm you on rainy autumn evenings. A plaid is a practical solution, such a present will never be superfluous: even if the recipient already has one, the second one will also find its use. There is a huge number of colors, patterns and materials. Try to choose neutral pastel colors (to make it easier to fit the plaid into the interior) and natural fabrics (to make it easier to care for the gift).
This unusual gift option will probably be more appreciated by young teachers (hover, perhaps not only). Kigirumi is a pajama-suit variant with a zipper, often made in the form of animals or various characters. An alternative to the classic blanket — no less warm and cozy.
17. Supply of stationery
The most practical gift in our selection, which will save the teacher from a headache for a long time. Buy and donate paper, pens, pencils, erasers, stickers and chalk so that the teacher does not have to worry about replenishing stocks until the end of the year.
18. Fortune Cookies
There are ready-made sets of all colors and sizes. But it will be much more interesting if you prepare such a gift yourself — bake cookies and put good predictions or wishes into it. Involve the teacher and the child in the process of creating a gift — together you can not only cook cookies, but also come up with a “stuffing” or arrange a box.
19. Original night light
Let’s not say that this gift has a real benefit, but not everything in this world should have a rational justification. Unusual night lights are suitable for decorating the interior and creating comfort in the house. If different options for every taste and color. You can choose, for example, a night light with a projection of the starry sky, a moon night light or in the form of a cloud, star or sun. Soft diffused light will create an extraordinary atmosphere.
Any teacher is a man of science, he probably has an impressive library at home. Fill it up with a new book. Choose a beautiful hardcover deluxe edition. It can be both a “professional” gift — if the book is a teacher’s specialty, or a more personal one — if you choose a work of art.
21. 3D pen
This is an unusual and cheerful gift, about which it will be possible to say with confidence: this has definitely not been given yet! With this pen, you can draw simple 3D models that will be made of plastic. The device allows you to do not only something fun, but also useful (for example, plastic parts for minor repairs). With it, you can perform a visual demonstration right during the lesson — for example, a math teacher can draw a three-dimensional figure.
Give your teacher a truly eternal gift. With the help of such a calendar, you can not think about the need to purchase paper versions every year. By simply changing the numbers and days of the ek, the teacher will know what day it is. Although in our age of modern technology there is no particular need for a physical calendar, it is still a nice little thing that can come to the liking of a person.
23. Photo frame or photo album
Such a gift will become truly memorable and will keep memories for many years. You can find an electronic photo frame or make a photo collage for a regular one. Pick up funny photos from the school life of your children and teacher — pictures from joint events, holidays and trips. A touching way to say “thank you” to a teacher for their hard work.
24. Edible bouquet
Such a gift will “live” for a short time — perhaps even less than a classic bouquet. But it will bring much more emotions, especially if you choose not the standard “set” option, but something more unusual: a bouquet of fruits, vegetables, meat delicacies, crayfish — there are many options. Such a present can be given to both a female teacher and a man.
To enjoy freshly squeezed juice, it is not necessary to go to a cafe or look for it in a store. A home juicer is a necessary device, because natural juices are good for health, especially in autumn, during the season of colds and low immunity. Together with a juicer, you can immediately give a set of fruits for her.
Words of gratitude to the teacher from the parents
How to congratulate on Teacher’s Day
There are some peculiarities in congratulating teachers. But the basic “rules”, perhaps, do not differ from those that guide us when choosing a gift for any other person.
First, give from the heart. Don’t give gifts just because you’re supposed to. A gift is a desire to express gratitude, and not an obligation that must be fulfilled without fail. In addition, you can always congratulate the teacher verbally.
Secondly, try to choose a gift that will bring benefit or joy, and will not gather dust on the far shelf as unnecessary. Therefore, it is worth at least in the minimum volume to find out what the teacher is interested in or what he needs.
Thirdly, since teachers are civil servants, in order not to cause them problems, limit yourself to a gift amount of 30 $ — this is what the Civil Code of the Russian Federation says.
Fourth, since all children and parents have different relationships with the teacher, it is worth deciding how to give a gift — from the whole class or perhaps you want to do it personally.
So, when choosing gifts for teachers, there are some nuances, but the main thing is not to forget that the teacher is a person with his own hobbies, preferences and tastes.
