From what I understand, different therapists have different ideas about gifts. It might be worth talking about beforehand -- what's your therapist's view on gifts? -- unless you're really okay with your therapist not accepting it, just in case that's his viewpoint.

Your idea sounds wonderful. I think symbolic and/or handmade gifts are really special.

At one point in my relationship with my therapist, I was bringing her "too many" gifts and we had to talk about it. So now I regulate my gift-giving to her. It's been helpful for me to understand my issues around giving gifts.

Everything in therapy can be grist for the mill, can't it? so annoying.
