4 Great Gifts For Lecturers/Teachers (Teacher's Day)
Ciao lovelies! Today’s post was requested by CleorieAntibeAr for upcoming Teacher’s Day. For this list, I’ve decided to include some DIY-able gifts as well as buy-able gifts!
I am not splitting this list into genders (because I don’t personally believe in gender roles) but I think that all the ideas on this list could be adapted for any gender!
Idea #1- Jar of Origami Stars

Probable cost- possibly $4? (Stationary paper, jar, and ribbon costs)
DIY Instructions- This DIY is fairly simple. Make a bunch of DIY stars out of stationary (which can be purchased single sheet, or in a booklet), put them into a jar, and tie a ribbon around it!
Here is a DIY Origami Stars Video:
Meaning- It is generally accepted that a jar of paper stars has two meanings- 1. Good fortune, and 2. The recipient gets a wish. Giving this to your teachers can signify your hope for their good fortune.
Idea #2- Personalized Stationary Set

Probable cost- Depends on the shop. If you buy a simple monogrammed set, you could probably get it somewhere like Tuseday Mornings or Office Max, or even Target. If you want a fully customizable set, you’ll need to order it online. I’ve seen sets like these go for as little as $5 (monogrammed), and as much as $100 (fully customizable).
Meaning- This one is actually super reasonable for any adult you wish to give a gift to. They can use it for anything, from business to personal, and will be super happy about it!
Idea #3- Personalized Mug

Type- Buy or DIY
Probable cost- DIY- $4? Buy- anywhere from $5-$20
DIY Instructions- For a personalized mug DIY, you’ll need a white mug and some sharpies. You can use this sharpie mug tutorial:
And make a perfect personalized mug for your fave professor!
Meaning- This one is also kind of self-explainable. I’d assume they’d use this for coffee during long nights grading papers! Writing nice messages on it like “Thanks for an awesome year!” or “You’re my favorite teacher!” will perk them up as much as the coffee. For drawings, try traditional school themes like apples and blackboards.
Idea #4- Custom Dry Erase Board

Probable Cost- $5 (maybe more if you include the markers with your gift)
DIY Instructions- You’ll need some cute stationary paper, a picture frame with a glass panel, and some markers. You can print a special design on the stationary paper if you want, but basically put the stationary paper into the frame and you’re done! It works exactly the same as a dry-erase board. You could take it a step up and buy a mini-easel and have it propped on that! Here’s a video explaining the process:
Meaning- This would help your professor, because they could use it for reminders/to-do lists and keep it by their desk. It’s a super practical gift that I’m sure any teacher would love!
As a little bonus, here’s some cute wrapping techniques that could work on gifts for teachers/professors!
I hope this was to your liking! I tried to make these ideas as customizable as possible to suit any kind of professor!
