Hey y'all,

Sort of an off topic question, but don't really know where else to ask so I hope y'all will bear with me! So started m1, about to meet up with my pre med days PI/valued mentor.

What's a good gift to say thank you? Here's what I came up with a) scotch. But I'm poor lol. B) a t shirt from the city I'm attending med school in. He's not really a t-shirt kinda guy but maybe he could gym in it?

What have y'all done? I know it's not necessary to get a gift but a card feels inadequate to express gratitude for some reason

What does your mentor like? I had a mentor during m1/m2 and we bonded over coffee a few times, so near the end of m2 I got him a box of his favorite k-cups. Just an example, but think about it that way and maybe you'll come up with something personal

I like a nice thank you card and some sort of tasty snack. If they don't end up wanting the snack they can always give it to some hungry residents so no real downside there

A sincere thank you note will suffice.

Thanks for the really fantastic ideas folks! I think I'm aiming for a snack/food item that I know he likes. Something fun and slightly personalized lol

And Goro, definitely know that a card would suffice. Frankly, he probably understands his impact and my gratitude without a card, even. However, if I can think of something thoughtful and fun, I'd like to be able to gift it. Just something I'd like to do for someone whose been instrumental in my journey but not something that's stressing me out or anything :)
