In the year + a few months I've seen T., I've given her one gift-- a candle. She was so so thankful for it. She said she was just looking at candles the day before at the store and was going to buy one for her living room but then got sidetracked.

the thing I'd say about gift giving to a T. is to be mindful of your expectations. I'm not sure it's good to give if one has expectations as to what is going to be said about the gift, done with the gift, etc... etc... that can lead to problems. I think it's safer to give if one hasn't any expectations-- just-- the thought of giving.

like, say you give T. something and expect him/her to keep it in the office, but then T. takes it home-- that could leave bad feelings, as the expectation didn't come to fruition...... giving with expectations can lead to a let down-- just be cautious.
