So I'm in year 10 and a teacher who has taught me for 3 years (year 7, 9, 10) is leaving. They teach RE and have made me really come to enjoy and love the subject that much I plan on hopefully doing it for my a levels and possibly in Uni. Me and a friend want to get him a present when he leaves at the end of the summer term just to say thank you basically but we're stuck on what to get him. I was thinking of a bands cd (as he mentioned it in the lesson one time saying it was a good band and the album cover had a Buddhist on etc) or something that is religious but witty/funny? Any suggestions (but no alcohol because I don't know if they drink it)? (I don't want appear to be sad or anything that will make them think we're weird😂)
Edit: Also forgot to mention, pretty sure they're vegan so will have to be suitable

I did this for some of my teachers since I'm in year 11 and leaving: get a scrapbook/book and get your class to write messages in it. It comes across as really meaningful and your teacher will have it forever instead of downing a whole bottle of wine.

Though flowers and wine are never a bad idea!

When my favourite chemistry teacher left last year, our class decided to get her a giant Millie's cookie which had the message, Goodbye Mrs Brown. She loved it and gave the leftover cookie to her children.
Hope that helped!

I really like the scrapbook idea but my class isn't the best to be honest and I can't imagine them helping with something like that :/

For a couple of my teachers we got personalised mugs (I mean, they all drink coffee/tea, so it's useful) and cards- and of course some chocolate. Maybe if your teacher has a motto/phrase they use regularly or something, put that on the mug. Or even anything that was really funny (speech bubbles on the mug?)

Hope this helped

I agree with the above messages, words are the most powerful gift. A small token of appreciation, like flowers or (suitable) chocolate is obviously great, but it is the words that they will treasure.
