Gift for a departing nutritionist
April 28, 2014 1:14 PM   Subscribe

I have been seeing a nutritionist through a clinic and, although I may see other nutritionists from time to time, I definitely have bonded with her. Now she's leaving to do a variety of things, including start her own business. I'll probably follow her eventually, but I wanted to give her a small parting gift, probably in the neighborhood of $25 but I'm not married to that number. Food is basically completely out, for a host of reasons. I would give her a book or something like that if I had any idea of her reading preferences. Flowers somehow don't seem right. What am I not thinking of? Thanks, friends!

Handmade mug? Great magnets? Soy wax candle?

If she's leaving to start her own business, I'd guess that an enthusiastic letter of thanks and permission to quote it and/or willingness to serve as reference for new clients would be far better than a book - only if you feel comfortable with that, of course.

one of those salt lights? a good mix cd (um, of music she can play at her clinic?) a print for her wall? fresh spices? (i know you said no food but...) a plant for her new office? an offer to design her business cards? tickets to a cool show?
