So you want to be teacher's pet, huh? How thoughtful! A gift (in addition to the gift of your presence, company and mindful attention of course) is never required. But hey, it never hurts to see what it can do to your GPA ;)
Due to my regular travel, gift cards really come in handy. Below are some gift cards that would be put to particularly good use (all can be emailed):
I adhere to a vegan/plant based diet. I only accept unopened items in their original packaging.
-Fresh berries (especially with CocoWhip dairy free whipped cream!)
-Mangoes and pineapples
-Hail Merry tarts and macaroons
-Miyoko's Vegan Cheese Wheels and Mary's Gone Crackers
-Sesame sticks and wasabi peas
I only accept unopened items in their original packaging. When in public, please do not order a drink for me prior to my arrival.
-Dry White Wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Grüner Veltliner
-Fuller Bodied Red Wines: Shiraz, Malbec, Bordeaux
-Sparkling Wines: Champagne, Cava, Prosecco
-Beer: Most anything made locally (wherever I am!)
-Earl Grey black tea or Jasmine green tea
-Soy or Oat milk lattes
Clothing & Skivvies
Alas, this can be a bit of a tricky area as your professor does have, to use a scientific term, rockin' curves. I tend to be a US 8/10 much of the time in dresses. I am an L in panties (pour le grand derriere, mon ami). My measurements, for the curious sort, are a luscious 34E-30-42. I wear a size 9 (EU 40) in shoes.
