I'm a gift giver but I like symbolic gifts. I gave him one both at the holidays and at the one year marker. (But I also sort of figured that since we were working on me trusting that he wouldn't "reject" me, I was sort of safe around this for now!) I also like the idea of baked goods but since my appointments are usually middle/end of the afternoon, I've never seen him eat in his office and didn't know if he had "thing" about that.

How about flowers? Something cheerful like, say, Daisies?? Or a plant? I always like the idea of a living thing.

The other idea I've seen bounced around is a crazy pair of socks. Why? Because we stare at their feet a lot. Nothing remotely romantic about socks either.

I agree about the card. So what if it ends up in your file? I think everyone appreciates being thanked. I made a point in my card to say that it was difficult to find a way to express appreciation within the theraputic boundaries but "sometimes Thank You is just Thank You." He laughed.

Good Luck! I'll be interested to know what you choose and how it goes.
