Best Gifts for Geography Teachers: Today children spend most of their time at school. Educators not only put invaluable knowledge into the heads of children but also monitor discipline, and educate their wards, trying to instill in them the best qualities. On the eve of any holiday, one should not forget about the teachers.
Choosing gifts is based on the specifics of the teacher’s activities. When you need to choose a gift for a geography teacher, you can fantasize almost endlessly.
Typically, his areas of interest include areas such as geology, climatology, biology, tourism, astronomy, sociology and others. The field of geographical knowledge spans many areas, so presents can symbolize each of them.
Now that we have established how to select the correct gift for her, let’s have a look at some of the best gifts for geography teachers;
Birthday Gifts “for the Soul”
Surely you managed to find out what your teacher is interested in. Each person, in addition to their main job, has a hobby. It can be assumed that the geography teacher enjoys travel, picnics, and hiking. Why not present to him on his birthday, something that will make his leisure time enjoyable and varied?
1. Photo Album
To make such a gift, you need to buy a large gift photo album and fill it with photos. From the first pages, start filling the album with photographs taken during elementary school. The last pages will contain the most recent photos. School pictures can be diversified with those in which you and your teacher go on a hike. Add some pretty pictures of nature. Highlight two or three pages for wishes and thanks. You can write to the teacher thanks in verse.
2. Comfortable Hiking Backpack
At any sports equipment store, you can find a stylish, high-quality backpack that will be comfortable to go hiking with. You can pick up both male and female versions. Such a gift is likely to be in demand. When going on a picnic or hiking trip, the teacher will surely remember you with gratitude.
3. Stone Lamp
A unique cozy atmosphere will be created by the soft light of the lamp in the living room. Choose an original lamp made of quartzite, marble, onyx or bluestone for the teacher. It will give the teacher a lot of pleasant impressions and an excellent mood.
4. Fishing Tackle
Such a birthday present will be appropriate if you know for sure that the teacher is fond of fishing. Any fisherman will appreciate the attention to his hobby. Each new fishing accessory is perceived even by an adult man as an interesting toy.
5. Warm Blanket
This item will come in handy not only on a camping trip or fishing but also at home. How pleasant it is on a cold autumn evening to wrap yourself in a soft blanket and sit with a cup of tea! This is another option for a good birthday present.
6. Gift Packaging of Tea
By the way, about tea. In supermarkets or online stores, you can find special tea gift boxes with different illustrations. Collect a selection of several varieties of teas that are shipped from different continents. There are gift copies on sale with pictures of countries where tea is grown.
7. Coffee Beans
An original and beautiful presentation of a noble drink will delight the teacher so that he will accept your gift with a smile.
Gifts for September 1st
On September 1st, the whole world celebrates the Day of Knowledge. The teacher is recommended to give something that will be useful to him in his daily activities. Think about what teachers use every day and add a little “geography” to that.
1. Stationery Set
Each teacher at the beginning of a new school year buys a large amount of stationery, the stock of which often needs to be updated. The set you presented on September 1st will definitely not be superfluous. You can put a beautiful notebook, high-quality pens and pencils, and a diary for notes in it. The components of such a gift are easy to vary.
2. Office Supplies
This is a highly sought-after gift for September 1st. So that small accessories such as pens, erasers, buttons and paper clips are not lost in the bulk bag, they can be placed in the organizer.
3. Calendar-schedule of Lessons
This “2 in 1” poster can be hung over your home desk or right in your office.
4. Briefcase for Notebooks and Notebooks
Choose a handy briefcase or bag in which the teacher can carry notebooks, magazines, and other items needed for work.
Teachers Day Gifts
On Teacher’s Day, it is customary for teachers to make symbolic gifts with which students and their parents demonstrate their attention and respect. It is recommended that a geography teacher give presents related to his occupation.
1. Gift Globe in a Wooden Frame
The teacher can proudly place such a subject in the teacher’s room or decorate his study with it. The globe can be used for educational purposes or as an element of the interior. If you are giving a globe, which the teacher is supposed to demonstrate in the classroom, then it is advisable to buy a large copy.
The gift option can be small. You can also present a souvenir option that will not take up much space on your desktop or on a shelf with books. A popular gift option on Teacher’s Day is a safe globe.
2. Great Gift Encyclopedia
It can be an encyclopedia of continents and oceans, a publication about space or the animal world. In any bookstore, it is easy to find several suitable options that the teacher will be happy to use in their work. In addition, such a book will become a real decoration of the geographer’s office. This gift for a geography teacher on Teacher’s Day will definitely appeal to him.
3. Tourist Guide Book
Even a geography teacher, who seems to know everything about cities and countries, will be interested in looking through such a publication. Such books are very useful for those who are going to travel. They detail tourist routes, features of national cuisine and local attractions.
4. Folder for Papers
Do not be lazy to go to the stationery department or a special online store and select a gift folder. It can be decorated in antique style or have a thematic drawing close to the nature of the teacher’s activity.
5. Wall Maps
These can be modern physical or political maps of the world, individual continents and countries. You can also present a specially “aged” card, that is, an antique-decorated product. The card will become a decoration of the study. It can be marked with routes of discoverers or places with pirate treasures. Selected gift cards are sold in wooden frames.
6. A Decorative Tree or Flower in a Ceramic Pot
Naturally, a science teacher loves nature. This means that she will take care of a houseplant with pleasure. It is advisable to give a plant that is unpretentious to the surrounding conditions, and is easy to care for. So there will be no risk that the new room “inhabitant” quickly disappears. You can even give him a “name”.
New Year Gifts for Geography Teachers
On New Year’s Eve, everyone is in anticipation of something bright and wonderful. Even the smallest symbolic gift can make a person happy and cheer him up. The geography teacher, like the rest of the teachers, will be pleasantly surprised by the present prepared for him and will gladly take it home.
1. Gift Book-box
Such wooden “books” can be with different illustrations. For example, a map of the world can serve as a cover. The box can be decorated for the publication of the teacher’s favorite book and will serve as an original gift for the New Year.
2. Gift Edition of Biographies of the Discoverers
This book will decorate the teacher’s bookcase or even become a desk aid that he will take with him to lessons. As a rule, such books are not cheap, therefore it is unlikely that the teacher himself will acquire such a copy for himself. But as a gratitude from the parent committee, such a gift for the New Year would be quite appropriate.
3. Wall Panel
It can depict geographical illustrations, sailing ships of sailors or simply New Year’s subjects. The panel will decorate the living room, bedroom or study and create a festive mood in the room.
4. Mosaic Picture
A city landscape or, again, a physical map of the world can be laid out on it from small details.
5. Thermometer, Hygrometer, Barometer or Weather Clock
All of these gadgets can be purchased at a specialty store. But if you do not know where to go for presents, it is better to go to the online store, where you can familiarize yourself in detail with the characteristics of each device. Surely a geography teacher will be interested in keeping track of atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity level and other physical parameters in the office or at home.
6. Gift Compass
The compass can also serve as a decoration or visual aid in geography lessons. And if possible, the teacher will definitely take him with him on a camping trip.
Students in the graduating class should think in advance about what they will present to each of the teachers before graduation. Such gifts should be memorable so that teachers, looking at them, remember their students with love.
1. T-shirt With a Photo and Wishes
To do this, you just need to buy a T-shirt and take it to the printing house, where a corresponding drawing or inscription will be applied to it. Present the geography teacher with a graduation T-shirt with a general photo or a beautiful thematic drawing (let the product show off a picture of the city the teacher wants to visit).
2. Traveler’s Sailing Ship
In gift shops, you can find paper or plastic gift sailboats. Buy a boat with a lot of sails. On each of them, write a wish to the teacher or paste small photos of classmates. This is how your entire graduating class should “gather” on the sailboat.
3. Thank You Poster on a Tube
To make such a gift with your own hands, you need to buy a large sheet of Whatman paper. Arrange with your classmates to get together after school and pre-stock all the necessary materials for decorating the poster – markers, stickers, photographs, glue and beads, colored ribbons and other items. Decorate a huge “postcard” with wishes, poems and applications. After that, carefully roll it up and place it in the gift tube.
4. Video Greetings on Disk
Record a general video of congratulations on a disc, which you will then beautifully pack in a gift parchment with a bow and present to the teacher at the graduation.
The teacher will accept any gift with gratitude. The main thing is to invest the warmest and brightest feelings that you have for the teacher. It is worth imagining a little, and you will come up with a lot of options for what to give your geography teacher. At the same time, take into account the specifics of his work and personal preferences. Surely during the time that you had to spend together, you managed to get to know the geography teacher from different angles.
