Teacher’s day gifts

Teachers' Day is a day to honor all teachers and to thank them for changing their lives to a better one forever. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. This is what actually a good teacher does. The day forms a great opportunity for the students to express their love towards their teachers and gifts serve as a token of this love and affection. Grown ups too can present gifts to their old teachers as a sign of gratitude towards them.

Gifts presented to teachers can be something to enhance their skills, or that which acknowledges their importance to the community. Try not to give too much expensive gifts to your teachers since they might feel uneasy about it. It can be an expensive gift if it’s a collective gift bought by the whole class. It is not the size of the gift but just the heart you put into it that is important. While presenting a gift to your teacher, it is necessary find out about his/her likes and dislikes. You can also personalize the gift with a special message accompanying it. 

"A good teacher is like a candle - it consumes itself to light the way for others." 

Teachers' Day in India

In India 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. 5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan and it is as a tribute to this great person that the day is celebrated as teacher’s day in India. Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan was a staunch believer of education, and was the well-known diplomat, scholar, president of India and above all a teacher. When approached by his students and friends to allow them to celebrate his birthday, he replied that it would his proud privilege if the day would be observed as teacher’s day instead. From then onwards, the day has been observed as Teachers' Day in India.

Some of the gift options for your teachers:

  • Giving a card to your teacher on Teacher's Day is a really sweet way to express your feelings. You can make it yourself too.
  • You can make a number of homemade gifts for your teachers, which can really touch the heart of your teacher.
  • Books can be a wonderful option since they are the natural part of any teacher’s life. You can choose a book for light reading or something of his or her subject area.
  • A desk object, a pen stand, a set of pens or a laser pointer.
  • A plant or a bouquet of flowers.
  • A wallet or a bag or a briefcase to carry papers and books.
  • A portrait frame or a painting or a vase or other home design object.
  • Two tickets for cinema or a music CD or a musical instrument.
  • A whole collection of books or movies, or a magazine subscription.
  • A food delicacy.

Wishing him/her through greetings will give you a chance to express your respect and admiration through words.

World Teachers' Day Theme Song

Students present various programs for the entertainment of their teachers on this       great day. In addition to being the day for the efforts of teachers are recognized, it provides a chance for healthy interaction between students and teachers.

 Teacher’s Day gifts prove to be appreciation gifts, through which we convey to our teachers that we truly appreciate their efforts. They are a kind of reward to the teachers for their hard work and dedication. It is not the gift itself, but the thought of recognizing a teacher’s contribution in our life, through gifts, which is important. The gesture of giving presents to teachers is an acknowledgement of their importance in our life. 


Happy Teachers Day!
