Saying Thank You to a Wonderful Person
January 8, 2012 6:43 AM Subscribe
One of my professors from last semester has been so incredibly kind, helpful, and supportive of me despite how difficult things were academically for me last semester. I want to thank this professor, but I don't know what's appropriate because I have never given a professor a gift before. What are some sentimental gifts that can accompany a handwritten note?

I have received a lot of support from this English and Communications professor, she's such a kind person and she really helped me get through this semester by encouraging me even when things were difficult and creating an alternate assignment for me. She told me that I was welcome to come to her office anytime this semester even though I am currently taking a break from school.
I want to visit her sometime soon (after I'm done my alternate assignment) to chat and say thank you in person for everything that she has done for me. But, I don't know what her interests are so it's difficult to know what she would appreciate.
I was thinking of getting her this book "Dr Seuss and Philosophy: Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!"
along with some chocolate, but I'm not sure if this is a good gift idea?
What are some gifts that a professor would appreciate? Help me brainstorm some gift ideas for such a wonderful person and professor.
