What to give recommendors.....
« on: April 06, 2006, 03:45:30 PM »
Maybe I missed this thread elsewhere but now that I'm accepted and decided I'm ready to send out the thank you's to my recommenders.  I was wondering what other people sent.  I was going to do wine.  Any other suggestions?

Wine is what I've heard most people say. I still am in the vicinity of all of my recommenders, so I'm taking each one to dinner.

I sent one prof a bottle of wine and another a basket plant arrangement (he loves gardening and all that happy horse*&$#).  I sent a coworker/supervisor a Demotivators calendar from Despair, Inc.  I think the latter was the greatest hit of the three.
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

Jolie is creeping up on me.

Amazon or Best Buy gift cards are a good idea.

Dinner is a really nice gesture but unrealistic for me. I just don't know if $50 per bottle is ok considering in have to buy 3.  I guess that would also be the equivalent of 3 dinners, so.....equal gesture?

These are hilarious....I might steal that one for my old boss.

so i did a search on older threads re this topic, and it seems like people are spending a lot on this!  is it really customary to spend like 50 bucks as a thank-you gift?  b/c i was originally just going to send a card  :-\

Wow, I could never afford dinners and wine. I handwrote cards and gave them each a box of chocolates. Actually, I got my boss a bag of his favorite pretzels since he's not allowed to have chocolates. Haha.
