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.
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.
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
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.
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”.
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.
September 27 in Russia celebrate the Day of the educator
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
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
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
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.
Congratulations on the Teacher’s Day in verse and prose
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.
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!
