The last call is an impor­tant moment for stu­dents, their par­ents, and, of course, teach­ers. Every day teach­ers gave a part of them­selves: they taught, edu­cat­ed, helped, instruct­ed. They deserve the warmest words of grat­i­tude for their work, and the most beau­ti­ful, inter­est­ing gifts that will bring back pleas­ant mem­o­ries of the school days spent togeth­er.

We have select­ed the best ideas for gifts for the teacher on the last call. All of them cost with­in 30 $, since the teacher, by law, can­not accept more valu­able gifts.

Top 25 gifts for the teacher on the last call

Orig­i­nal gifts

1. Heated mug

Those who spend a lot of time at their desk some­times do not have enough hot tea or cof­fee on hand all the time. A USB heat­ed mug solves this issue per­fect­ly.

2. Thematic smashbook for the teacher

Will please the recip­i­ent of the gift. You and your class­mates can par­tial­ly fill it out your­self. Counts for pho­tos, pleas­ant mem­o­ries, wish­es will be filled with your love and grat­i­tude. As a result, you will get a won­der­ful spir­i­tu­al gift that will keep a warm mem­o­ry of joint school days for many years.

3. Original table lamp

Teach­ers often work with papers. And some­times, espe­cial­ly on gloomy cloudy days, they may not have enough day­light. Give an orig­i­nal touch-con­trolled lamp with bright­ness con­trol, or a smart lamp with Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­i­ty.

4. Wireless charging

A great gift idea for a teacher. It will allow you not to get con­fused in the wires and not to look for a place for the charg­er among the many sock­ets. Instead, the teacher will be able to eas­i­ly charge their gad­get at the right time.

5. Indoor plants and flors

An alter­na­tive to fast-fad­ing clas­sic flor bou­quets. A house­plant will dec­o­rate both a school class and a teacher’s apart­ment. An orig­i­nal solu­tion would be a “grow it your­self” set — you can choose from herbs, flors, and even trees.

6. Paint by numbers

A gift that will allow every­one to become a cre­ator, an artist. Draw­ing by num­bers is a fas­ci­nat­ing, relax­ing activ­i­ty, it will help the teacher to emo­tion­al­ly relax and enjoy the process. This gift can also be pre­sent­ed in the “pho­to-col­or­ing” for­mat. Order a per­son­al paint­ing by num­bers, the lay­out of which will be a joint pho­to of your class with the teacher.

7. Aquarium

It also refers to gifts that can be used both to cre­ate home com­fort and for emo­tion­al relax­ation at the wor­welace. Con­tem­pla­tion of the liv­ing and beau­ti­ful will be an excel­lent means of psy­cho­log­i­cal relax­ation.

8. Bean bag chair

Tak­ing the shape of the body and tak­ing a per­son into its soft embrace, such a chair will allow you to relax phys­i­cal­ly and men­tal­ly. Such a five-minute relax­ation with a cup of your favorite drink in your hands will pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty to recu­per­ate after a busy day. And if the teacher decides to leave a gift in the class­room, the present will also appeal to his future stu­dents.

9. Massager

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Such an elec­tron­ic assis­tant will help you quick­ly recov­er after a hard day, relieve mus­cle ten­sion. Mas­sagers are uni­ver­sal, and there are — for spe­cif­ic parts of the body: neck, lor back.

10. Coffee machine or automatic coffee maker

The cof­fee mak­er will per­fect­ly fit into the work or home inte­ri­or of the teacher, espe­cial­ly if he is a con­nois­seur of good cof­fee. But even non-cof­fee lovers are some­times not averse to indulging them­selves with this drink. And cheer­ful­ness, a fresh head and a pos­i­tive atti­tude are always nec­es­sary for a teacher.

11. A bouquet of sets or candied fruits

Flors are a tra­di­tion­al gift for a teacher. Go fur­ther and present an unusu­al bou­quet of sets or can­died fruits. A beau­ti­ful and tasty gift will appre­ci­ate the set tooth. And if you choose a bou­quet with dried fruits, then the present will turn out not only tasty, but also use­ful.

12. Gift set of tea or coffee

Always use­ful both at home and in the wor­welace. There are both neu­tral sets and spe­cial, “teacher’s” sets. There are “mono-sets” — with only one type of drink, there are also com­pos­ite gifts — tea, cof­fee, sets and a post­card are packed in nice box­es.

13. A set of spices

Alter­na­tive to tea and cof­fee set. An unbeat­able gift option that will def­i­nite­ly come in handy in every­day life. Choose sets in beau­ti­ful pack­ag­ing — in a wood­en box or a gift box. Inside you can put a card with wish­es and words of grat­i­tude.

14. Professional diary planner

Pho­to: pixabay.com

A prac­ti­cal gift, a thing that every teacher needs. The­mat­ic design, spe­cial con­ve­nient markup — all this will help the teacher opti­mize the plan­ning of his work­flow. Such diaries come in dif­fer­ent shapes and sizes, the most unusu­al are glid­er-box­es, which can also be used as an orga­niz­er for sta­tionery items.

15. Perpetual calendar

A cal­en­dar is a nec­es­sary and irre­place­able thing for a teacher. Tear-off options are clas­sic, so offer a more non-stan­dard idea: a per­pet­u­al cal­en­dar. It is ordi­nary, it dif­fers in that you can change the years and months on it man­u­al­ly and almost end­less­ly. The choice of cal­en­dars is huge: wood­en and paper, wall and table, flip and key­chain type.

Prac­ti­cal gifts

16. Wall clock

Wall Clock

A clock in a styl­ish design will dec­o­rate the teacher’s school office, will remind you of the start time of lessons and breaks. If your teacher’s class does­n’t have this item, con­sid­er it as a gift idea. When choos­ing a watch, be guid­ed by the gen­er­al inte­ri­or of the class, the col­or scheme and the size of the num­bers — the dial should be clear­ly vis­i­ble even from the back desks.

17. LED blackboard light

Use­ful tool for a teacher. Local illu­mi­na­tion of an addi­tion­al lamp pro­vides an increase in image con­trast, which means that every­thing writ­ten on the board will be seen bet­ter and clear­er. It is con­ve­nient that most of these lamps can be mount­ed direct­ly on the top edge of the board, which means that you do not have to drill walls and car­ry out addi­tion­al work on mount­ing the device.

18. Pen with engraving

A good pen with the teacher’s ini­tials engraved on it will def­i­nite­ly be appre­ci­at­ed. Hand­writ­ing, even in the era of total com­put­er­i­za­tion, occu­pies an impor­tant place in the life of teach­ers. There­fore, a per­son­al­ized pen will be a pleas­ant, prac­ti­cal and mem­o­rable gift.

19. Personalized flor vase

The most pop­u­lar gift for a teacher is flors. There­fore, a vase is almost as nec­es­sary an item in a teacher’s every­day life as a pen or diary. Make this gift per­son­al­ized, more sin­cere. Order an engrav­ing on a vase with warm wish­es and words of grat­i­tude for your teacher.

20. Personalized flash drive

A flash dri­ve is a con­ve­nient and reli­able store of infor­ma­tion, even though new wire­less tech­nolo­gies are grad­u­al­ly replac­ing it. Order a per­son­al­ized flash dri­ve for your teacher. The inscrip­tion will not only make the gift more mem­o­rable, but will also allow you to quick­ly find the USB assis­tant in case it is lost.


21. Certificate to the bookstore

A gift that any teacher will love. After all, books are an inte­gral part of both the pro­fes­sion and the life of a teacher in gen­er­al. The cer­tifi­cate will allow you to choose exact­ly the book that you need (or want to read) at the moment. It doesn’t have to be a cer­tifi­cate to a pro­fes­sion­al store — teach­ers are hap­py to read fic­tion abstract­ed from work.

22. Horse riding

This gift will be remem­bered for a long time. Horse rid­ing relax­es and soothes, gives pos­i­tive ener­gy and strength, a sense of free­dom and joy, relieves stress and wor­ries. It is some­times nec­es­sary for teach­ers to release the pres­sure caused by huge pro­fes­sion­al respon­si­bil­i­ty, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion with hors­es will help reduce stress lev­els and cre­ate pos­i­tive emo­tions.

23. Theater ticket

The the­ater is a place where peo­ple can com­plete­ly immerse them­selves in the atmos­phere of art, relax men­tal­ly, and at the same time get to know them­selves bet­ter, get food for thought. A the­ater tick­et is a won­der­ful gift for any­one at all times.

24. Gift certificate to a home goods store

Each of our teach­ers has his own home, his own per­son­al space, which you want to fill with com­fort for a com­fort­able and com­plete rest. Give them such an oppor­tu­ni­ty — a cer­tifi­cate to a home goods store will per­fect­ly cope with this task.

25. Gift certificate to the spa

Pho­to: pixabay.com

Every­one needs to rest and relax from time to time. Regard­less of gen­der and age, the teacher will be able to find a pro­ce­dure in the spa that will bring plea­sure and joy. Few peo­ple will refuse, for exam­ple, a mas­sage, although at the usu­al time it is not always pos­si­ble to go and sign up for it on your own — more impor­tant things are always found.

How to choose a gift for the teacher on the last call

When choos­ing a gift, think about what you pri­mar­i­ly focus on. Do you want to fill your present with bright mem­o­ries of school years? Make a gift sin­cere and mem­o­rable? Or do you think it’s more impor­tant to give a prac­ti­cal gift?

Next, you should decide: the gift will be focused on use at home or in the school office. In the lat­ter case, think about what can bring com­fort and con­ve­nience to your teacher’s class­room.

You can give gen­er­al, irrel­e­vant gifts (for exam­ple, a wall clock, a flor vase), or you can give gifts focused on the hob­bies of a par­tic­u­lar teacher (if you know them). Or a gift in accor­dance with the sub­ject taught by the teacher at school. For exam­ple, a cer­tifi­cate to a hob­by store or a globe of sets (for a geo­g­ra­ph­er), an exot­ic flor or plant in the “grow it your­self” for­mat (for a biol­o­gist).

When choos­ing a gift in the store, do not for­get that there are restric­tions for teach­ers on the price of the gift they receive. Accord­ing to the law, a teacher has no right to accept gifts worth more than 30 $.

It would be appro­pri­ate to add a cre­ative con­grat­u­la­tion to any mate­r­i­al gift (a dance flash mob from stu­dents, a song or poem writ­ten col­lec­tive­ly by the class or one of your class­mates, a mini-film about your school life). Such a sur­prise will sure­ly touch and pleas­ant­ly sur­prise your beloved teacher.

And most impor­tant­ly, in addi­tion to the tra­di­tion­al bou­quets of flors, sets, mate­r­i­al and even cre­ative gifts on this day, do not skimp on bou­quets of kind words, heart­felt wish­es, grat­i­tude and warm sin­cere smiles addressed to your teach­ers. After all, they have gone with you a long and often dif­fi­cult path, mak­ing it inter­est­ing and col­or­ful.
