Gift Ideas for Mentors
Teaching someone something is a very honorable job. Everyone gets a mentor at least once in a life that makes a difference. The mentor can be your parents, teachers, instructors or any other person that teaches you something valuable that helps you throughout your life. Giving a thank you gift to mentors as a token of appreciation for their services is a delicate matter, therefore, it is better to ask your mentor beforehand if it would be alright to exchange gifts with him/her. A good mentor might agree and take the opportunity to teach you more by giving you a helpful book or anything like that. You have to be careful while choosing a gift for your mentor as personal gifts like jewelry, cologne, and articles of clothing are inappropriate. Such gifts show the level of intimacy that is not suitable for mentoring. Anything expensive is also inappropriate to give away to the mentors as such items can send wrong signals which can cause embarrassment. I have composed a list of gift ideas for mentors that you can use to find an appropriate gift for your mentor.
