I need to get a Most Helpful Person of the Year gift for a late 30s, artsy teacher. Please show me things that would work!
Going from 2 year -> 4 year university, and one particular teacher has been the most helpful person on the planet. Since graduating from 2 year school, she's invited me to her home to review my portfolio (graphic design), written a stellar recommendation letter, and provided me with all sort of resources and, in general, has just been really awesome and helpful.
Things about her to help decide:
•Early 40s, but tend to be more 'hip' (or whatever) than people in her age group. Think mid 30s for a demographic.
•Artsy/designery (?). But not too into technology.
•Likes quirky things. Has a cuckoo clock and neon painted dinosaurs in her house, which otherwise feels like trendy ikea.
•Wears a lot of jewelry. By that I mean she wears jewelry every day and owns a lot of different pieces, but doesn't necessarily wear a bunch of jewelry at one time.
Here's some things from her pinterest to give you a sense of style (I don't want to link directly to it because of privacy)
: 1 2 3 4
: 1 2 3
etc: 1 2 3
This should be easy because our tastes are practically identical, but I just don't know what kind of gift is acceptable. Can I buy her a necklace and have it not be creepy? What about nail polish? She paints her nails. I know nothing about nail polish. Unique/artsy posters for her office or some other quirky gift would be cool. There are too many options.
Budget:$25, I have amazon prime.
