The beginning of October brings this bright holiday of knowledge. This is one of the most anticipated festivals, because education workers are honored on this day. Students and their parents traditionally congratulate teachers with warm words, flowers, and gifts. Still struggling to choose the best present for Teachers’ Day? Especially in honor of this event, we have prepared a list of the best gift ideas.
Original and memorable Teachers’ Day Gift Ideas
To congratulate your favorite teacher in an original way, the whole class will have to work hard. A greeting poster or newspaper wall from the whole class is a simple but memorable gift. The teacher will be delighted when they enter the classroom and see a wall newspaper in their honor on the wall. For a gift poster, you can take colored cardboard, glue a photo, and write wishes from each student.
It is better to make a newspaper wall on behalf of all students in the class, so that each student can leave a wish to the teacher. Add pictures, decorations, and on top of the newspaper in a beautiful font write "Happy Teacher's Day." The wall will be special because it draws on the imagination of all the students.
If you have already begun to look for excuses that such DIY crafts for home decor need a lot of time and beginners cannot do it, then right now we are ready to dispel such thoughts! Well, the question of time will have to be decided independently. Students can also create a short video and add congratulations and wishes to their teacher that way. The video can include photos of the entire class, insert animation and interesting music. This may be the best option for any virtual class.
Greeting balloons are another unusual Teachers’ Day art project. Stick photos of the teacher on helium balloons and put them all over the classroom. Such a surprise will give a good mood to all those present on such a momentous day.

Teachers’ Day drawing ideas are not limited to postcards. Present your teacher with a handmade cup with warm words and wishes or a beautiful thematic ornament.

Fresh flowers on the window in the classroom are aesthetically pleasing and useful for students and teachers. They not only decorate your studying room, but also fill the air with oxygen. It is recommended to ask teachers in advance what their favorite flowers are.
5. Professional Gifts for the Teacher

In such a situation, you need to give the teacher something that will be useful in the classroom: something that both teachers and students can use.
