The month of Christmas has arrived. The time to give out presents to the people we are grateful for is upon us. Among these people, students are greatly indebted to their teachers. Following the parents, teachers are the second most influential adults in students' lives. Even with small gestures, show them you appreciate them with a thoughtful Christmas gift.
Teachers discipline and guide students to a brighter future, and this is in no way an easy task! 'Tis the season to give back and hand our teachers gifts they would truly appreciate. Whether they are your teacher or a friend or family member that is a teacher, to make sure you make the right choice, we have provided a Buying Guide and a Top 10 ranking of our recommended gifts.
Christmas is the perfect chance to show your teacher how grateful you are towards them for teaching and guiding you. Here are some points to consider when giving your teacher a gift.
We want to give a present that the teacher would think is useful. Therefore we should do some research beforehand. By finding out whether the teacher likes being outside or inside, we can better understand what present to give. Even better, giving out stationery products can also be helpful for your teacher's daily life.
Don't be too shocked, but your teachers actually have their own personal lives out of school. They may do outside activities such as doing sports, hiking, or traveling. Knowing what type of activity your teacher likes to do may help you choose your present for them.
People who like doing outside activities may want to have a handheld mini fan with them when going out since the weather in the Philippines is very hot. Moreover, other useful items such as towels, water bottles, and any kind of outdoor goods can be useful with their outside activities.
When your teacher is tired from work and just wants to stay in their house during the holidays, they may prefer indoor products. They may have several indoor hobbies, such as cooking, indoor training, or reading. Therefore, looking for items that could be useful for their indoor activity might be the right present for them.
We can find items that are useful for kitchen products. There are coffee and tea sets, recipe books, or mugs. Moreover, if you have a book or DVD that you want to recommend to your teacher, buying them a copy can be a good present. Afterward, you can have a talk about it and share opinions with your teacher to deepen your bond.
You can also give them self-care products, which do not have to be a woman-only item. It can be a bath salt, aromatherapy products, or any other unisex item your teacher can use to relax and unwind their minds and bodies.
Teachers are busy throughout the year. Being organized and focused will surely bring their productivity up. Therefore, to keep up with their schedule, every educator needs a good planner or journal to keep track of their meetings, lessons, appointments, and other commitments.
This will prevent them from forgetting tasks that they have to accomplish and finish their daily duties smoothly. A diary, agenda, a calendar, or an organizer will also be of great help. Each has its own supporting role to help your teacher maintain their daily duties.
Of course, we cannot forget about writing tools - these may be teachers' most used items throughout the year. Pens, pencils, and markers, personalized or not, will be great presents. And who knows, your essay scores might get a couple of bonus points as they check your paper and get reminded of you!
When it comes to age and gender, the design, color, or smell of the items you buy may differ. For example, neckties are more used by males than females. Also, if giving out a handkerchief for males, most may prefer simple geometrical designs. However, females may prefer designs that are more elegant or cute, like flower patterns.
Moreover, those in the late 30s may prefer less flashy designs than younger ages. Also, when it comes to body fragrance, older adults may prefer stronger scents because it is natural for the sense of smell to weaken with age, making it harder to detect smells. Therefore, it is better to keep in mind what kind of scent to buy regarding the teacher's age.
However, this is all a preconception of society's perspective. What they like and dislike really depends on their taste. In the end, it is best to properly do some research before buying a present for your teacher.
Although we are grateful to them, if you are a student looking to give that special teacher a present for the holidays, you might not have that much money to spend. Since most students do not work yet, it is hard to buy an expensive gift.
You can try to talk to your entire class and do an ambagan so you will have more options and maybe a bigger budget for the gift. Another important suggestion is to check out coupons or vouchers. Especially during the Christmas season, there are great deals to check out which will enable you to save money.
Here are 10 unisex present ideas that your teacher will definitely love and use. All these items are available online to buy for your teacher.
