    What sort of stuff does he like? Depends on that, really.

    My Chemistry teacher loves baking cakes, so I got him a child's baking book and a badge that says "I love cupcakes!" on. They were both jokey presents, but he loved the book and couldn't wait to wear his badge and show it to all the other science teachers :lol:

    You can get t-shirts with "Schrödinger's cat is alive" on one side and "Schrödinger's cat is dead" on the other. You could get him/her one of those OP. :lol:

    How about making some small posters with terrible (brilliant) nerdy physics jokes on? Like on coloured paper, less than A5 size and lots of them. Then your teacher could stick them up round the classroom ^^
    I dunno, maybe ones like...
    "A photon checks in to a hotel. The receptionist asks 'Haven't you got any luggage?' and the photon replies 'No, I'm travelling light!'"

    It wouldn't make a whole pressie but it could make part of one?

    You could order something off of the science museum website?

    One of our physics department has a seemingly infinite wardrobe (some law of physics being warped, there, possibly) of 'amusing' physics related ties. Periodic tables, moles etc. It suits his personality down to the ground, but you need to be sure your teacher is that kind of 'wacky' personality, otherwise it's just embarrassing. If in doubt, go for something consumable and a sincerely meant card.

    I think these are pretty cool ideas, thoughtful and you know they will love it!
