Ways to Appreciate your Favorite Professor

Whether you’re about to graduate from college or you’ve already started your career, there had to have been key professors or counselors that helped you get to where you are now. If they were your mentor, counselor, boss or even a friend all educators deserve a thanks! What is even an appropriate gift?  Do you need to get all of your professors a gift? Here are some tips and ideas for appropriate professor gifts during graduation.

 

Office Gifts

Like all college or university professors, they are always busy and sometimes unorganized. Help keep their office nice and tidy with a personalized office or desk gift. A personalized name plate, engraved with their names and titles adds a stately feel to their office. For the especially unorganized, an engraved pen holder or desktop organizer will work wonders. A set of personalized bookends make a classic and timeless gift for any professor and is something that they are sure to use and display for years to come.

 

Personal Professor Gifts

Are you and your professor close? Like, friends or even mentor/mentee? If so, a personal gift can totally be appropriate. A personalized photo frame with a photo of the two of you from the beginning of your journey is a great sentimental gift that they can display in their office. Do you share the love for the same sports team or hobby? A pair of tickets or memorabilia can be a great gift! Even a bottle of their favorite wine and some local goodies make a great gift! Professors need fun and hobbies too!

 

Thank You Gift

 

If all else fails, an appropriate and thoughtful gift is a personalized thank you plaque. Personalized with their name and titles, you can even include a heartfelt message to them. A personalized pen set makes a great thank you gift for a professor because every time they use that pen, they will remember how they’ve helped you! Adorn the box with their name and a special thank you message to really make it a special gift. Whether they helped you graduate or were there for you when you needed someone, it is never too late to thank them!

 

Thanking a professor is a special gesture for everything they have taught and instilled in you. Some professors see you from your first year to the end of your term or even graduate program. The time and energy invested into you should be reciprocated. Do you need to give a gift to all of your professors? No, only the ones that really mean something to you and that have personally helped you. Being an educator is a thankless job, when it really doesn’t have to be. How have you thanked your professors or mentors in the past? How do you plan on thanking your professors?

Understanding Confirmation and Ways to Commemorate

The sacrament of Confirmation is a large and important step for young catholic adults further into God’s grace. With the support and help of their sponsors, they will receive the Holy Spirit and continue to live and thrive as a practicing patron. This is a milestone not only in the Catholic or Christian religions, but also for the young adult and sponsors. How do you celebrate this milestone and what is an appropriate Confirmation gift?

Symbolism and Sponsors

A traditional symbol of the sacrament of Confirmation is a white dove, signifying rebirth and grace. As the Bishop is bestowing the Holy Spirit onto the individual with perfumed sacred oil, laying of the hands and prayer, a change is happening. Sponsors are responsible for guiding the changing young adult through life, leading by example and protecting and praying for them. The role of a sponsor is very similar to the role and functions of a God Parent during baptism and sometimes is the God Parent.

What is an Appropriate Confirmation Gift?

Depending on how well you know the individual, a religious themed gift is usually the best gift. Stay away from personal gifts like perfume or clothing as this is a spiritual celebration. Jewelry for Women is also traditional, like a cross necklace or bracelet.

Rosary and Rosary Box

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosaries and Rosary Boxes make a great confirmation gift. Adorned with the symbol of a white dove and cross, engraved with the individuals name and special date of confirmation make this item special. What makes this item unique is the special message and words for encouragement from the sponsor or God Parent. Pair with a personalized or special rosary, this gift is sure to be used for prayer and reflection daily. Looking for a personalized rosary to match? Try The Rosary Garden for personalized rosaries with names, special color beads and icons.

Photo Frame

Help them to commemorate and remember the special day they were endowed with the Holy Spirit with a photo frame. Adorned with doves and crosses and engraved with the special date, this frame is sure to be displayed for years to come. Add their special confirmation name to truly make it a thoughtful gift!

Bible Cover or Keepsake Box

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To help lead a life of prayer and forgiveness, a personalized bible cover can be a great gift. Help them keep their bible safe and clean with a special bible cover, with different sizes, colors and designs there is one for every style. A personalized box, adorned with a cross and their name and special date is a great gift to keep small mementos like bibles, prayer cards and rosaries. Also this box is the perfect size to keep letters, cards and photos safe.

No matter the gift, it really is the sentiment that matters. A new chapter is starting for the newly confirmed individual and it is a path of enlightenment and prayer. Help guide them on this new path with a thoughtful and useful gift. How do you celebrate this special sacrament? What do you think is an appropriate gift?
