Teachers are some of the most important people in our lives. They are constantly working hard to help us reach our full potential. The festive season is almost here and are you thinking of the best way to appreciate your teachers for all they have done for you? Then you are at the right place. Here are five thoughtful gifts you can give your teacher.

Like any other gift, it is the thought that counts. You don’t have to break the bank or go beyond what you can afford to give a gift. People appreciate gifts that are meaningful and thoughtful.  And also as a student, it is safe to assume you are not working and therefore you will not be able to afford expensive gifts.

It is also prudent to not give personal items such as undergarments, lotion, and perfumes. Giving these types of gifts could send the wrong message and could be deemed as inappropriate. It is always safe to stick to simple and inexpensive gifts that reflect your relationship with your teacher.

A THOUGHTFUL NOTE OR A THANK YOU CARD: You can never go wrong with handwritten notes containing beautiful appreciative words.  It is a great way to let your teachers know that you appreciate all their advice, instructions and gentle criticisms. You could also buy your teacher a beautiful card containing nice words showing exactly how you feel about being taught by a great teacher.

A MUG WITH AN INTERESTING INSCRIPTION: A simple mug is also a considerate and a thoughtful gift to give to a teacher. This is an item they will keep for a long time and will remind them of you.  Pick one that has a beautiful inscription that resonates with what your teacher means to you. 

A PACK OF PENCILS OR PENS: Is a useful and thoughtful gift to give to your teacher. It is inexpensive and well within a reasonable budget. Furthermore, a pen or pencil is a thoughtful and practical gift because these are items teachers use all the time.

A BOOK: If your teacher is one that loves to read, then giving out a good book as a gift is the way to go. This is a gift that they may cherish for a long time because when they pick it up you will come to mind. You could also throw in a page marker as an additional gift.

A SIMPLE TOTE BAG: A tote bag will come in handy in carrying books from home to school. Tote bags are not expensive and are available in most shops. You could also ask your parents to help you select one for your teacher.

Remember to always give what you can afford. Don’t give based on what other people are giving.
