suggestions? Any would be appreciated!

Hey guys

So, my last day of high school was on Friday. It is kind of a bittersweet time. It is definitely a transition.
Anyway, I have something I have to take in to my school on friday and I want to get a gift for my Film Studies because, coincidentally he was also my English 30 teacher last semester.
I am thinking of doing a "teacher survival kit" with little things like white out and whiteboard markers with little explainations attached. I am out of ideas though. does anyone have others? And how should I give the to him? Just in a gift bag?
Any other ideas for anything? Even a completely different gift?

what about some pens (biros) maybe some chocolate? maybe in a small gift box, or even for a bit of humor add a apple or some kind of friut? I never brought anything for a teacher when i was at school so my idea is not amazing, just sweet and simple lol. Also a nice thank you card would be a nice personal touch :)

It wasn't a long time ago when I read an article. In that article some of teachers told what they think about different presents. One of the most appreciated gift type was something that the student has made theirself. Also "consumer goods" as chocolate boxes or flowers were good. Avoid all kind of bric-a-brac like cheap decorative items.

So how about a bouquet, some self-made beautiful card and a box of chocolate? Or a class photo in a frames that you've decorated yourself?

I also love the idea of "teacher survival kit" or that what Aylas suggested. Them are both so personal gifts .

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
