My Mood: Decision about holiday gift

Default Decision about holiday gift

A while back I posted here about thinking of giving T something as a holiday gift.

I got her a pair of oven mitts, Christmas-themed. It’s simple, but I think she’ll like it. Hopefully. I will give them to her tomorrow, for our last session of the year.

That sounds like a lovely idea! I bet she will love it, especially if she's into cooking.

I ordered my T- three Dr Seuss books: The cat in the hat, Green eggs and ham and how the Grinch stole Christmas. Books are MY thing, but he also has a young daughter so I know they will get read and not left to gather dust on a shelf. He recently thanked me for the last book I gave him for his birthday (Oh the places you will go) and told me that he'd been reading it a lot.

The first two have been dispatched, but it's the third one with the message that hasn't as it's out of stock at the moment!! But I bet he will figure out that it's from me.

That's an excellent idea as well, Lemoncake!! But I don't know T enough to give her a book, though... Perhaps in a few more years? Hope your T gets to read it with her daughter!

Oven mittens sound great. I think it's a very cute and useful gift :-)

I'm so glad I found this post! I've been debating whether it would be ok to give my T a christmas card just to say thank you, but was worried it would be too much? I know, logically, that it's just a card so no big deal, but i can't help wondering if he would be put off by it. I'm glad other people are giving their Ts small gifts and cards!

I just came back from the post office. I mailed my T a 2019 calendar which I was involved in creating. She should get it on Wednesday.

I always give my T a Christmas card! And this year I might add some homemade sweets as well. I wouldn't give something expensive as I think that would be awkward for both of us, but at this time of year I want to let him know that I appreciate all that he does for me.

Three or for times over the years I sent T a card with a gift card to her favorite restaurant. By mailing it I felt it took away the awkwardness for the both of us. After the first one we discussed it at my next appointment. The rest of the times she emailed me a thank you and then said it again at our next appointment
