Gifts for Family

Hello,

I was about to come on here and post the exact same question. My school had an option for a certificate of appreciation, but I thought that was a little corny and impersonal.

Hopefully we can get some more feedback.

Not sure what your price parameters are, but since this is an "appreciation gift," i'd focus more on your appreciation than the gift if that makes any sense...be sure to tell them just how appreciative you are either in a card or in person when you give them the gift.

My SO has been thru hell with me thru my 1L so far, so for his bday in June I'm getting him a small gift w/ a card that details just how much I love and appreciate him for putting up with me this past year. For your wife, I'd suggest perusing Etsy for a handmade necklace or something (I've just discovered how awesome that website is)--nothing too out there but something nice as a memento of your appreciation. For family, depending on what they like, maybe a nice big gift basket or something from Harry and David just as a thank u along with a well-written card is always nice.

Plan a nice vacation or day trip they would really like?

Suggestions above are solid too. Just stuff they would enjoy, same as regular holiday gifts.

And +1 to emphasizing the appreciation more than the gift itself.
