I'd like to send a gift to daughter's teacher. Any ideas for gift for woman in her 30s, unmarried?

Something like nice teas or hot cocoas is always good. Chocolate always works. What kind of budget are you looking for?

Think about something you enjoy alone without having to share with your family.

If you want to give food, a candy sectional but instead of candy each section has a different veggie like baby carrots, baby corn, cucumber, pickles etc with a dip

If you want to give gift card, a gift card to a restaurant or a spa for mani/pedi

Really, the sorts of things you'd likely give a teacher (stationary, office supplies, cute mug or water tumbler, chocolates, etc) work for any, no matter their stage in life. Even if you were thinking of some kind of kitchen gadget or cookbook, it's fine. You don't have to be married to cook, lol.

My sister (single) and I (married) enjoy the same things and often get the same gifts from
My parents and grandparents etc.

TBH what differentiates us is that I’m having Sx and she’s not, and I hope your not giving anything related to that for MM.


Totally incorrect!
I was an older single. I had no need for serving platters and picture frames.
You’re crazy if you think s-x is the only thing that differentiates you from a single woman. It’s about having a relationship. A home. A family. You’re so shallow. I wonder why you got married before your sister with your shallowness.

I was an older single in my 30s and I was glad to get platters or cookbooks and whatnot as gifts. It let me know people viewed me as an adult woman, not as a kid or young girl. Certainly I used them (as I said previously, you don't need to be married or even living in your own place to cook).
Certainly I wanted a home and family but I was still a person, and I wanted to be viewed as such. I wasn't lesser or not fully grown because I didn't have those yet. I didn't define myself by what I didn't have, but by my self growth as a person. Which you don't need to be married to do!
Honestly your post is the very shallow view and you seem to be the type of older single who marries & immediately starts to condescend to her unmarried friends (yes that is unspoken phenomenon that exists).

It depends on whether or not she is living on her own. My working daughters would rather get a gift they can use personally. When they cook, they use my utensils. If you give them a kitchen or serving item, the gift ends up being for me. Not that I personally mind LOL. They could save it for later on, but usually they don't, unless it's something unique or special that would be worth saving.
