This is what I am doing. Giving both LOR writers DVDs related to their field (both are history professors)

I got one of my recommenders a mug w/ a joke re the class she taught on it + coffee. I think she really liked it. It was very personal.

I thanked each in person, handing the younger one a bottle of Patron and the older one some Black Label.

I was originally just going to give mine handwritten thank you notes and this mug because it's my most favorite mug ever (LinkRemoved). Then we were getting books from the library that were destined for recycling for the set of our next play (I work in my school's theatre dept) and I grabbed a couple from the pile that fit with the classes I'd taken from said profs, and included those in the gift.

I did this, but it wasn't cheap pre-packaged chocolate, it was the good stuff. And it was more like 2lbs., but 1lb probably would have been enough.

Did this + a gift card. Though the gift card was donated to a charity of my choice because he felt awkward accepting it (he offered it back to me but I told him to pay it forward). He also wrote a baller LOR
