Gifts for recommenders? When?
« on: October 04, 2007, 12:26:03 AM »
My two recommenders finally got their acts together and submitted letters for me.  I want to send them notes to thank them as well as small gifts (I'm thinking a box of Godiva chocolates for one, a bottle of wine for the other, who I know is on a diet).  When should I send them?  I kind of want to do it now, but I feel like the letter would be better if it came after some sort of good news.  But as we all know, that could mean waiting until the Spring!  Maybe sending the gift and thank you note now, and an e-mail when/if some good news comes in?  Also, any better ideas than chocolate and wine?

I would do it now. Waiting until you get accepted would make it seem like your gratitude was conditional.
