Not sure if this is the appropriate place for this question ...
What is the best gift to give to the people who wrote letters of recommendation for my school applications?
One of the individuals is my manager ... the other is another manager I do work for, but I do not report to him.
I got into all of the schools I applied to and already informed them of the good news. But I need to give them a special thank-you gift - but what's appropriate??
I know they both drink alcohol - so should I give a nice bottle of wine or champagne? But is it appropriate to bring that to the office?
Would chocolates/candy be better?
I feel kind of silly giving them a gift certificate for dinner, as they are both quite wealthy, etc.
Additionally, how much should I spend??
Lastly, those who read/edited my essays (not family/close friends) - is a sincere thank-you card sufficient?
