The long-await­ed farell par­ty: chil­dren are emo­tion­al, par­ents exhale that anoth­er life stage has passed, teach­ers with a sad smile see off their wards. The tra­di­tion of giv­ing gifts to teach­ers is old. No mat­ter how strong the voic­es of oppo­nents sound in the spir­it: “Teach­ers get paid, why should they give some­thing away?”, Many still sin­cere­ly want to thank the men­tor of their chil­dren. More­over, there is a great rea­son for this — the end of school. “We” has col­lect­ed the best gift ideas for teach­ers for grad­u­a­tion.

Top 25 Best Teacher Graduation Gift Ideas

The prices of all gifts in our selec­tion do not exceed the price of 30$. Because Arti­cle 575 of the Civ­il Code pro­hibits accept­ing gifts for employ­ees of the edu­ca­tion­al sec­tor, with a val­ue above this mark.

It is unlike­ly that some­one out­side will take an inter­est in the true price and inform the author­i­ties. But sit­u­a­tions are dif­fer­ent. Grad­u­a­tion gifts for teach­ers more expen­sive than this amount can be regard­ed as a bribe. This can involve both par­ties. There­fore, it is bet­ter not to take risks and not to sub­sti­tute the teacher. All the same, the best reward for him will be a respect­ful and warm atti­tude from the stu­dents.

1. Thermal mug

In an era when peo­ple live with a glass of cof­fee or tea to go, this is a very rel­e­vant gift. In such a mug, the drink retains heat for a long time. And the design is con­ve­nient­ly closed and does not spill in the bag. Good mod­els have a heat­ing func­tion. They are pored by a small bat­tery or con­nect­ed with a USB cable to any com­put­er.

2. Desktop humidifier

Mod­els that can set the required lev­el of humid­i­ty in the entire room are ll worth it. And our task is to offer gift ideas to teach­ers for grad­u­a­tion no more than 30 $. Portable devices fit per­fect­ly under this cat­e­go­ry. They are placed on the desk­top and cre­ate a pleas­ant micro­cli­mate around. They save on a hot sum­mer day or if the bat­ter­ies are exces­sive­ly hot in the win­ter.

3. Gift set of tea

Or cof­fee, accord­ing to the taste of the teacher. We think the chil­dren will tell you that their teacher likes to drink more. The pre­sen­ta­tion is good because in any case it will be in demand. The teacher will be able to take him home or leave him at work. After all, our­selves rarely buy good tea and cof­fee for our ser­vice, and here there is a rea­son to please the teacher.

4. Neck Massager

Pho­to: pixabay.com

A com­pact gad­get that heats up to a pleas­ant tem­per­a­ture and vibrates gen­tly. It kneads the cer­vi­cal-col­lar zone, dis­pers­es the blood, relieves ten­sion, and for some it even helps with headaches. The gift is again good because the teacher can either leave it at work or take it home.

5. Back cushion

Orthopedic pillow
Pho­to: pixabay.com

Anoth­er attribute that is direct­ly relat­ed to the seden­tary work of a teacher. An office chair is not always com­fort­able. This gift will help keep your back straight and main­tain a nat­ur­al deflec­tion in the lor back. As a rule, such pil­lows are filled with mate­r­i­al with a mem­o­ry effect. It takes the shape of the body line and does not miss more than nec­es­sary.

6. Digital ather station

It does not pull on the role of the main present, but it seems like an inter­est­ing gift. Espe­cial­ly if the teacher teach­es nat­ur­al sci­ences: geog­ra­phy, biol­o­gy, physics or chem­istry. He can leave the device in the class­room and then use it in the edu­ca­tion­al process. Think through extra­or­di­nary lab­o­ra­to­ry work with him and clear­ly explain to future stu­dents how the ather out­side the win­dow depends on atmos­pher­ic pres­sure and wind speed.

7. Flor Growing Kit

Indoor plants and flors

Kits with a pot, prop­er­ly select­ed soil and seeds re orig­i­nal­ly sold in the depart­ments of chil­dren’s goods. Some­thing like a set of juniors. But today they are also made for adults. An orig­i­nal planter, for exam­ple, made of wood, exot­ic flors or even a tree seedling will delight the teacher and keep the mem­o­ry of your grad­u­a­tion for a long time.

8. Shawl

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Gift for ladies teach­ers. It is clear that you will not flaunt in this in the 21st cen­tu­ry. But to use as a neat alter­na­tive to a blan­ket on a cold work day — why not? Now they pro­duce a great vari­ety of scarves with inter­est­ing prints and pat­terns.

9. External battery

Or a por bank. Com­pact, has large resources and all pos­si­ble slots for charg­ing. Con­sid­er­ing that many teach­ers today use tablets, lap­tops and smart­phones to pre­pare for lessons, a present will sure­ly help out more than once.

10. Nordic walking poles

A young teacher will not under­stand such a gift for grad­u­a­tion. And the one that is clos­er to retire­ment age may catch fire. Nordic walk­ing is incred­i­bly pop­u­lar today. For this spar­ing and at the same time effec­tive sport, there are no con­traindi­ca­tions. Peo­ple in their 60s and 70s choose walk­ing as a hob­by and start every morn­ing with the next dis­tance.

11. Wireless speaker

It is a pity that the allot­ted finan­cial lim­it for a gift is not enough for a sys­tem with a built-in voice assis­tant. But it is quite pos­si­ble to keep with­in and buy an ordi­nary high-qual­i­ty col­umn. Such a grad­u­a­tion present can again be con­sid­ered from the point of view of use­ful­ness both at home and in the work of a teacher. Broad­cast audio record­ings dur­ing a les­son or engage in a class­room dis­co.

12. Gift certificate

For those who don’t want to take the risk with a grad­u­a­tion gift that might not be out of place. Giv­ing mon­ey in an enve­lope is not eth­i­cal, and the cer­tifi­cate card is devoid of neg­a­tive con­no­ta­tions. But the teacher him­self will be able to choose the right thing in the store.

13. Footrest

Pho­to: pixabay.com

A sim­ple gift that makes life eas­i­er for every­one who works at the table for a long time. A good prod­uct has an adjustable tilt angle and height, a relief sur­face for mas­sage has been added. The stand helps to unload the spine, improves blood cir­cu­la­tion in the legs.

14. Galileo thermometer

An Ital­ian physi­cist of the past invent­ed a sim­i­lar device dur­ing his life­time. Today, the accu­ra­cy of his tes­ti­mo­ny leaves much to be desired. The error is 3 — 4 degrees. But it looks very styl­ish. Such a sou­venir will dec­o­rate any room: a school class or your teacher’s house. The bot­tom line is that mul­ti-col­ored buoys float in the flask. Depend­ing on the tem­per­a­ture in the room, they change loca­tion. The lost buoy reports the cur­rent tem­per­a­ture.

15. Teapot

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Today, the shops have an exten­sive selec­tion of kitchen uten­sils. The teapot can be made of glass or ceram­ic, avant-garde in shape and with clas­sic mul­ti-col­ored paint­ings. Nice and inex­pen­sive gift. The school will def­i­nite­ly find a use for it.

16. Decorative book holder

Nice inte­ri­or item. Two stands that fix mag­a­zines or vol­umes from dif­fer­ent sides. It looks styl­ish and com­ple­ments the inte­ri­or of any room. It is dec­o­rat­ed with dif­fer­ent fig­urines: sil­hou­ettes of cats, a horse’s head or myth­i­cal Atlantes.

17. Aroma diffuser

Styl­ish bot­tle filled with fra­grant essence. Wood­en sticks are insert­ed into it, soaked in the solu­tion and spread the fra­grance. Cheap vari­a­tions smell ak and the bou­quet is not cho­sen in the best way. But more expen­sive dif­fusers are much bet­ter. By the way, elec­tric ver­sions are also on sale. They work on the prin­ci­ple of an air humid­i­fi­er, they only scat­ter aro­mat­ic oils.

18. Smartphone Sterilizer

Smartphone Sterilizer

A top­i­cal thing for today. A com­pact box in which the gad­get is fold­ed, the lid slams shut and mag­ic hap­pens inside. In fact, the mobile phone is sim­ply treat­ed with ultra­vi­o­let light. Such radi­a­tion is detri­men­tal to most bac­te­ria. Cool mod­els are equipped with a wire­less charg­ing func­tion. It turns out a 2 in 1 device.

19. Drip coffee maker

The cost of this house­hold appli­ance just fits into a cer­tain bud­get. And enough even for a good mod­el with heat­ed con­tain­ers. The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion is sim­ple. Ground cof­fee is poured into the fil­ter and hot water is dripped through it. The result is a teapot of fresh­ly bred black drink.

20. Smart bracelet

We are sure that young teach­ers will appre­ci­ate such a grad­u­a­tion gift. Nar­row wrist strap with dis­play. It shows the time, the num­ber of steps tak­en, the pulse and is able to fol­low dif­fer­ent types of train­ing. This is used by men and women, so you can safe­ly give.

21. Office stationery set

Stationery set

At first glance, this gift idea seems bor­ing. But not all schools have a ll-estab­lished sys­tem for buy­ing basic sta­tionery. Some­times teach­ers are forced to buy paper so as not to leave chil­dren with­out print­outs for lessons, to have a pack of spare pens for for­get­ful school­child­ren, etc. If you know that there are prob­lems with the office in the edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tion, then give the teacher a large set for grad­u­a­tion.

22. Photo album

Print­ed pho­tographs are becom­ing rare these days. And you will reverse the trend: order a large selec­tion of frames for grad­u­a­tion. Col­lect all the pic­tures from the school life from the guys in the class. Let filmed on a smart­phone and in poor qual­i­ty. A print­ed pho­to has a spe­cial mag­ic. Well, it would be nice to add a few shots with your favorite teacher to the album.

23. Cooling pads for laptops

Laptop table

Suit­able if the teacher has such a com­put­er. This sim­ple gad­get is essen­tial­ly a table with built-in fans, oth­er­wise called a cool­er. The sys­tem cools the fill­ing of the lap­top, pre­vents over­heat­ing, which means the com­put­er runs faster.

24. Lunchbox

Styl­ish and high-qual­i­ty replace­ment for the usu­al food con­tain­ers. Instead of bulky plas­tic jars — neat con­tain­ers made of envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly mate­ri­als. Some can be fold­ed to a com­pact size.

25. Gift edition of the book

Book store

It would be nice just to know the approx­i­mate area of ​​inter­est of the teacher, so as not to mis­cal­cu­late the genre of the book. Today, thou­sands of the­mat­ic pub­li­ca­tions with vivid illus­tra­tions are on sale. Not only fic­tion, but also jour­nal­ism, pop­u­lar sci­ence works. The deluxe edi­tion also looks great on the shelf.

Graduation Gift Tips for Teachers

Decide who and when to give. Not all teach­ers are invit­ed to grad­u­a­tion. It all depends on the tra­di­tions of the school and class. Hov­er, it will be embar­rass­ing if at grad­u­a­tion stu­dents and par­ent com­mit­tees pompous­ly present presents to the class teacher, and the rest are left with­out signs of atten­tion. If you didn’t plan to give any­thing to oth­er teach­ers, it’s bet­ter to give the gift to your teacher in a more inti­mate atmos­phere.

Bou­quet from class. The good Sovi­et tra­di­tion — flors for the teacher — is being trans­formed today. And not because peo­ple have become tight-fist­ed, and teach­ers are less fond of flors. It’s just that both sides real­ized that a huge buck­et of bou­quets would with­er soon­er or lat­er. There­fore, today it is cus­tom­ary to give one good bou­quet from every­one. Oth­er mon­ey for flors is offered to donate to char­i­ties. The flash mob even got the name “Chil­dren instead of flors.”

What to give a teacher for the last call

Keep gift receipts. Of course, you don’t need to apply them. But you need to keep it. All because of the very law, accord­ing to which any gift more expen­sive than 30 $ can be regard­ed as a bribe.

Don’t know what to give your teacher for grad­u­a­tion? Give him a choice. You can direct­ly ask the men­tor what is miss­ing. Only del­i­cate­ly, they say, maybe some­thing is required in the class. Or just present the cer­tifi­cate to one of the shop­ping malls in your city, and the teacher will choose what he needs.

Do not give “sub­ject” gifts to sub­ject stu­dents. Fizruk — a gold­en whis­tle, a geo­g­ra­ph­er — a globe, and a teacher of lit­er­a­ture — anoth­er col­lec­tion of Pushk­in’s works. Not the best idea. Of course, there are sit­u­a­tions when a teacher is so pas­sion­ate about his work that he is real­ly hap­py with the edu­ca­tion­al globe. But a gift should first please a per­son, and sec­on­dar­i­ly be direct­ly relat­ed to his pro­fes­sion.
