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.

2. E‑book

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.

6. Wireless phone charger

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.

10. Humidifier

Air Ozonator

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.

11. Diffuser

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).

16. Kigirumi

Pho­to: pixabay.com

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

Pho­to: shutterstock.com

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.

20. Book

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

Pho­to: @karolina-grabowska, pexels.com

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.

25. Juicer

Pho­to: pixabay.com

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.
