Gifts for advisors


Recommended Posts

My advisor has been beyond awesome, and I would really like to give hime a small token of my appreciation upon finishing my masters. Of course I've considered the gift card route, but I would much rather come up with something more thoughtful than that. He is a professor of Jewish philosophy and has also pioneered a type of interfaith dialogue (although he would probably kill me for using that term!). It would be great if I could get him something that speaks to either of these, but any more general ideas are also welcomed!


So what do you say? Any suggestions?

If you are applying to doctoral programs and get in I have heard a lot of people giving their adviser/recommenders something from the school that accepted you, like a coffee mug, ect.

I think a used book store is always a good place to start. My advisor does work on Shakespeare and English puritanism, so I found a neat, older edition of Richard III for her. Might be a little tougher to find something for your advisor's interest, but worth a shot.
