Thank You Gifts for Mentors

When you have a mentor who has helped you perfect a skill or has taught you vital lessons, it is important to tell him how much you appreciate it. One way to do this is with a gift. Buying a gift for your mentor likely is not as easy as choosing something for a friend or family member, so be sure to put careful thought into it.

Book

Give your mentor a book as a way to say thank you. Choose a book with inspirational passages about mentors. You could also choose a book that is an autobiography or a biography about someone in your field or even a sports or music personality that your mentor likes. Alternatively, choose a leather bound journal for your mentor.

Stationery

Select a stationery set for your mentor. Have a set of stationery made with her initials monogrammed on the top of the sheets of paper and onto the envelopes. If having custom-made stationery is out of your price range, choose a set of stationery that is pre-made. Opt for simple stationery, or a set that has your mentor's first or last initial already printed on it.

Personalised Desk Items

For a mentor who works in a traditional business setting, select a personalised desk item. A nameplate for the front of his desk is an idea, as is a picture frame with his initials engraved on it. A set of silver pens or a clock for his desk are other items that you can have personalised.

Gift Basket

Put together a gift basket for your mentor. Make a gift basket based on something that you know your mentor enjoys. For example, for a mentor who likes wine, fill a basket with a couple of bottles of wine, wine glasses, a bottle opener and wine charms. For someone who enjoys chocolate, fill a basket with gourmet truffles, chocolate-covered strawberries, hot cocoa mix and other chocolate items.
