I went the conservative route, gift basket + wine. I think the total was around $70 (for each recommender). I'm still debating whether I want to give them something else (giftcard?) after/if I get in somewhere.

I'm still debating whether I want to give them something else (giftcard?) after/if I get in somewhere.

Good idea.....

Guys, one of my recommenders is in States and the other in Canada... hence please throw some internet site addresses along with ideas.

do you guys wait until all the reccs are submitted? say, the deadlines are spread out over 2 months, does the gift come at the very end or should there be a token gift after the first recc is submitted? don't want to shower them or seem like i'm bribing, but want to acknowledge the effort(s).

yeah, mine put the recs in last week - they're way ahead of me on getting the stuff in. Once my apps are in (WEDNESDAY!!), I will do the gifts.

Earrings, I think, for one.

A book for another

Cigars and beer for the third.

The fourth is sort of funny - she's my contact at the IRS and can't technically accept gifts from me.

Ballsy? She likes earrings. Or am I missing something? It's not like I am buying her a sex toy or something.

How about a cool pair of cufflinks? You can't go wrong with them. Just got a recommender from Unicuffs.
He loved them. Just google em.
