Teacher’s Day is cel­e­brat­ed in Rus­sia on Sep­tem­ber 27. Edu­ca­tors are those peo­ple who are among the first to inter­act with chil­dren and instill in them the qual­i­ties and skills nec­es­sary for life in soci­ety. And in grat­i­tude for their work, you can con­grat­u­late them on their pro­fes­sion­al hol­i­day.

It is not nec­es­sary to give an expen­sive present, it is nec­es­sary to do it from the heart. We will offer a selec­tion of gift ideas for Teacher’s Day that you can take note of. We also recall that the cost of gifts to employ­ees of bud­getary insti­tu­tions (includ­ing edu­ca­tors) should not exceed 30 $. In order not to cre­ate unnec­es­sary prob­lems for your­self or the teacher, lim­it your­self to this amount.

Top 25 Teacher’s Day Gifts

1. Thermal mug

Keep­ing track of one baby is not easy, what can say if there are sev­er­al of them, and every­one needs an eye and an eye for every­one. It is impos­si­ble to be dis­tract­ed even for a cup of tea. Give the teacher a ther­mo mug with a con­ve­nient lid, in which the drink will not only remain hot for a long time, but will not spill: she will be sin­cere­ly grate­ful to you. Now there is a wide vari­ety of ther­mal mugs — plas­tic, met­al, bam­boo and oth­er options.

2. Set for creativity

Needle­work has become more and more pop­u­lar in recent years. There­fore, a good gift would be a set for embroi­dery or draw­ing. Paint­ings can be cho­sen on any top­ic — from com­plex land­scapes to rel­a­tive­ly sim­ple flors.

3. Blender

A blender is a must have in any kitchen. More­over, a good blender is prac­ti­cal­ly a mini-food proces­sor with use­ful attach­ments, indis­pens­able for prepar­ing a wide vari­ety of dish­es and drinks: from scram­bled eggs to cock­tails.

4. Umbrella

A high-qual­i­ty umbrel­la, with a design­er print or plain, will be a use­ful pur­chase for every­one. Such a gift will be appre­ci­at­ed just in a rainy autumn, when you can­not do with­out this acces­so­ry. It is advis­able to choose an umbrel­la for the col­or scheme that the care­giv­er prefers, or choose some­thing neu­tral and suit­able for any image.

5. Aroma lamp or humidifier

Pho­to: pixabay.com

The aro­ma lamp will be quite an orig­i­nal and inter­est­ing gift. No, are not talk­ing about cheap ceram­ic sou­venirs with a can­dle inside. We offer to pur­chase a mod­ern ultra­son­ic aro­ma dif­fuser for the edu­ca­tor, pored by a sock­et. It sprays water vapor mixed with essen­tial oils into the air. The back­light, as a rule, has sev­er­al col­ors and bright­ness modes. In the cold sea­son, such a gad­get can also help in the pre­ven­tion of influen­za, if you choose the appro­pri­ate con­tent.

6. Book

The book is the best gift. A sim­ple truth that every­one knows from school. Find out your care­giver’s pref­er­ences and give one or more books they might like. Books can be cho­sen not only artis­tic, but also those that can be use­ful in the work. Find a hard­cov­er or gift-wrapped option. An e‑book can be a good alter­na­tive — now their price is quite afford­able.

7. Snapshot Camera

Small and handy — devices for instant pic­tures. They can be use­ful to any per­son for cap­tur­ing impor­tant, joy­ful and pleas­ant moments of life. With the help of such a cam­era, you can instant­ly take and print a pho­to on a card — “as before”.

8. Raincoat

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Dur­ing walks with the kids, care­givers are often forced to be in the rain — and this brings lit­tle plea­sure to any­one. For such ather, a rain­coat is per­fect, which will pro­tect clothes from small drops. And bright col­ors will help to cheer up even on the most rainy day.

9. Box with gifts

Box­ing is a com­plex gift, it can be on any top­ic. You can choose an inex­pen­sive one (or even a few) with lit­tle things that are pleas­ant to the heart. There are both wom­en’s and men’s options, or you can stop at some­thing neu­tral. For exam­ple, there are box­es with tea and cof­fee, with sets, hon­ey or can­dles. A nice box with beau­ti­ful­ly designed con­tents will give a lot of pos­i­tive emo­tions dur­ing unpack­ing.

10. Massager

After hard work, you just need to relax prop­er­ly. And here a mas­sager will come to the res­cue of your favorite teacher. There are both uni­ver­sal mod­els, and for indi­vid­ual parts of the body. The mas­sager will help to relax after a hard day and will have a pos­i­tive effect on the health of the care­giv­er.

11. Silver jelry

A good gift option for a female teacher. Sil­ver jel­ry is inex­pen­sive, but dis­tin­guished by grace. Hov­er, they are not as “catchy” as yel­low gold items. You can choose a beau­ti­ful neu­tral piece of jel­ry, such as a pen­dant, bracelet, or ear­rings (make sure the teacher has her ears pierced).

12. Coffee maker

Morn­ing is not a favorite time of the day for any­one, ear­ly ris­es rarely con­tribute to a good mood. A mug of strong, invig­o­rat­ing and hot cof­fee will help your care­giv­er to cheer up in the morn­ing and “come to your sens­es”. A cof­fee mak­er can help with this. There are a num­ber of inex­pen­sive and quick mod­els that will help you save time on mak­ing Turk­ish cof­fee in the morn­ing. From home options, you can offer drip or cap­sule. Togeth­er with the cof­fee mak­er, you can imme­di­ate­ly give a pack­age of beans or cap­sules.

13. Edible bouquet

Bouquet of sets

Down with banal bou­quets that stand and with­er. Quite anoth­er thing — edi­ble bou­quets. They, too, will not please for long, but they will cer­tain­ly be remem­bered. There are dif­fer­ent options for bou­quets, both set and not very. You can choose a bou­quet of choco­late, tea/coffee, fruit, or even fish or cray­fish! Their cost is dif­fer­ent, so just decide on the price, and the teacher will def­i­nite­ly find the right use for this gift.

14. Tea or coffee set

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Hot drinks are an inte­gral part of every­one’s life. Tea and cof­fee help to cheer up before the work­ing day, restore strength after its com­ple­tion, and, pos­si­bly, dur­ing it. Choose teas with unusu­al addi­tions — this will help diver­si­fy every­day tea drink­ing. You can go even fur­ther and give the teacher a set for mak­ing cocoa — in addi­tion to, in fact, cocoa, a pret­ty mug and marsh­mal­lows can go into it.

15. Candle Making Kit

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Such a set for cre­ativ­i­ty will be a pleas­ant and unusu­al gift. You can buy a ready-made kit or assem­ble it your­self — you will def­i­nite­ly need wax and a wick. The activ­i­ty itself is sim­ple, but relax­ing. A nice bonus are nat­ur­al can­dles that can be used in dec­o­rat­ing the inte­ri­or. And the teacher, hav­ing tried on his own expe­ri­ence, will then be able to show the prin­ci­ple of mak­ing can­dles to chil­dren.

16. A set of socks

If the teacher is not alien to mod­ern trends, give him a fun­ny and prac­ti­cal gift — a set of socks with fun­ny prints. For more con­ser­v­a­tive natures, you can choose less extreme options — woolen or knit­ted: the cold is approach­ing and such a gift will cer­tain­ly be appro­pri­ate.

17. Handmade sets

When choos­ing a tra­di­tion­al set gift, opt for hand­made sets. The choco­late in them is usu­al­ly much bet­ter than what is sold in super­mar­kets. And beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing and exquis­ite appear­ance will make the gift not only tasty, but also aes­thet­ic.

18. Board game

Today, board games have gone far beyond chil­dren’s enter­tain­ment. There are var­i­ous options — for games in the com­pa­ny, com­plex intel­lec­tu­al strate­gies, already clas­sic options like Monop­oly. The main thing is not to take chil­dren’s games so that the teacher plays with the kids in the group. Choose adult options that will be use­ful to the teacher out­side the kinder­garten.

19. Shawl

The end of Sep­tem­ber por­tends the immi­nent onset of cold ather, which means that a warm shawl will def­i­nite­ly not be super­flu­ous in the edu­ca­tor’s wardrobe. It will help to warm up on the way to work or home, diver­si­fy and update the appear­ance. Choose scarves made from nat­ur­al mate­ri­als — syn­thet­ics will def­i­nite­ly not be able to warm any­one in the harsh Russ­ian win­ter.

20. Anti-stress pillow

Anti-stress items occu­py a sep­a­rate niche of gifts for those whose work is con­nect­ed with peo­ple, espe­cial­ly with small ones. Chil­dren, although they are the flors of life, some­times take too much time and effort, espe­cial­ly if you have 25 of them in a group. There are var­i­ous anti-stress toys, but, in our opin­ion, a pil­low is the best option. It will not only help relieve the accu­mu­lat­ed stress, but also dec­o­rate the inte­ri­or.

21. Hammock

Pho­to: pixabay.com

This is one of the most pleas­ant things in our selec­tion. It can be hung in any suit­able place and out­ighed when nec­es­sary. It is a plea­sure to lie in a ham­mock under the shade of trees on a hot sum­mer after­noon, drink home­made lemon­ade and read your favorite books (or not read, but allow your­self to relax and do noth­ing).

22. Magnetic board

Assis­tant in dai­ly time man­age­ment: a mag­net­ic board can become the keep­er of all to-do lists, ideas and plans for the day. Give along with a set of bright and col­or­ful mag­nets.

23. Table lamp on a flexible leg

A prac­ti­cal and use­ful gift. Edu­ca­tors often have to pre­pare for a work day with chil­dren at home, and a table lamp that gives a direc­tion­al light will be use­ful for this. Flex­i­ble leg allows you to adjust the direc­tion of the light. Attach an ener­gy-sav­ing light bulb to the gift so that the teacher does not have to go shop­ping addi­tion­al­ly.

24. Scratch card

A nice gift that will dec­o­rate the room and, per­haps, be use­ful to the teacher in his pro­fes­sion­al activ­i­ties. For exam­ple, there are scratch cards with con­ti­nents and coun­tries: upon return­ing from trips, many trav­el­ers will be hap­py to “erase” the next place they have vis­it­ed. And in its untouched form, the map can be an excel­lent visu­al aid.

25. Night light “Starry sky”

A star­ry sky pro­jec­tor will help you feel like a space explor­er. Tiny stars that strew the walls, floor and ceil­ing cre­ate a unique atmos­phere in the room. Choose mod­els more por­ful and attach a set of bat­ter­ies to the gift.

How to congratulate on Teacher’s Day

  • Focus on the law. The Civ­il Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion states that edu­ca­tors, teach­ers, doc­tors, offi­cials and oth­er employ­ees of state insti­tu­tions do not have the right to accept gifts more than 30 $. Of course, it is unlike­ly that some­one will check the cost of your pre­sen­ta­tion on the spot, but it is bet­ter to play it safe and not bring prob­lems to either your­self or the teacher. We also rec­om­mend that you keep your receipt after pur­chase — just in case.
  • Pay atten­tion to the teacher’s pref­er­ences. If you know that he is an avid trav­el­er, give him a stur­dy suit­case. If he is fond of paint­ing — can­vas and paints. Try to refuse duty gifts that can only cause a polite smile.
  • Make your gift per­son­al. Even the most banal present can be more per­son­al­ized. The sim­plest thing is to attach a hand-signed post­card and accom­pa­ny the deliv­ery with sin­cere wish­es. You can order an indi­vid­ual inscrip­tion on the gift itself — for exam­ple, if you give a cake, a pen or a pil­low.
  • Give from the heart!
