I'm taking a long break from therapy, so with the holidays coming up I want to give my therapist (woman) a nice gift. I think a gift card wouldnt be the safest way to go, because I don't have time to be really creative right now. I'm also trying to write a nice note of thanks but I have no idea what to write in it without it sounding ridiculous or childish. I need it so sound like I'm an adult and it's sincere cause I want it to be. ANy suggestions for notes/gifts would really help me out!

We just had a question like this from another member. I think that if you just are honest and sincere in the card, that is all that matters. I don't think that it would sound childish. And I don't think your therapist would either. Just put your feelings down. That is what it is all about anyway.

It is hard to pick out a gift for somebody like that. I would suggest a simple pen set, or a journal.  Calenders are nice too. You don't want to get too personal. And some wont even accept gifts. I gave mine a Christmas wreath, but I make them every year so that was easy. But I carry them mushrooms, berries and apples. All of the things that I pick when it is in season. They gladly accept these things. But like I say, some don't or aren't allowed to. So if the gift is declined, that would be why.

Actually I think a card is sufficient, hopefully somebody else will be along with some more ideas for you.

Hugs, Karen

On 12/4 you posted "With the holidays coming up, I want to by my therapist a nice gift. She's a little older but not old.

I hate buying gifts for people because I never know what to get. So waht would be a good gift? I don't want it to look like I just picked something off the shelf and wrapped it, because it's a close relationship I want it to be special.
I would even be willing to take some creative ideas and make something too. Any suggestions?
Your question was asked and answered by many, I am wondering why you are posting it again as this worries me.
A nice card will do well.  The card will say the words for you.  Just a beautiful Christmas card to a nice person may suffice.
Christmas New Year Wish

I made a Christmas wish for you,
For a holiday full of pleasure,
Friends and family all around,
And memories to treasure.

I wish for you a Christmas filled
With joyous holiday cheer;
I wish you a Merry Christmas,
And a very Happy New Year!
