gifts to recommenders [#permalink]

Is anyone giving gifts to your recommenders during Christmas before an invite or waiting for an invite?
I myself have no guarantee of an admission as I am not applying to any safety schools now. But am waiting till I meet them in person, which would be after Christmas. I was considering sending a card in the mail but Ive never done that before and I thought it will be awkward to do that just this year, in case I dont end up following it next year.
updated with ideas from last year and off the top of my head. Now the real question is does anyone know how to make links within a wikipage. It woudl be nice to have one of those little boxes in the corner with the places to click to skip to the appropriate section.
I'll see if I can add to the wiki page, but for here, I'm planning on giving both of them a bottle of port from my favorite winery in Sonoma, CA. I'm a port collector, so I got quite a few good ones saved up in my wine fridge that I give people as gifts.
If I get in, I like the memorabilia from the school idea, like a t-shirt, mug, picture frame, etc...
I'm gifting one of my recommenders with a rare cab from one of my favorite wineries ($65). I sent the other one a cigar gift box ($100).
I thought sending them each something they can enjoy is much better than sending them wearables from wherever I end up. Who wants a purple Kellogg shirt if their only connection is their former direct report went there? My two cents.
I'm just pulling your strings too, river (getting you back for the "profile" thread )
But you're right, can you imagine when many of us change our avatars once we matriculate at our schools next year? All of a sudden, penguin, submarine, BSD devil, and other avatars will turn into school mascots/emblems and we won't know who's who anymore, haha!
Of course, the biggest shock will be that even *I* will have an avatar...
