However sometimes, like Amy, we want to give a gift that shows how much we care and value our teachers; store bought wine and/or chocolates can feel like a cop out.

If you feel this way you might consider a homemade, edible present which demonstrates you have taken time and care to make something special.

In Australia, being a non drinker is considered a weird thing (I know – it says something about our culture doesn’t it?

) therefore people may never tell you they don’t drink. So here is my problem: I’ll have the odd glass of something, but Mr Thesis Whisperer doesn’t drink at all, so there’s no occasion to open the gifted bottles of wine at home.

Finally: just because certain behaviour is considered ‘normal’ doesn’t mean you have to normal.

As I highlighted in my story, experiencing the gift giving norms of another culture can be delightful.

Have a look at this post on Christmas baking for some ideas.

Wine / chocolates If you do decide to give a gift, in Australia wine is considered a safe, socially neutral choice.

Unless, like me, your supervisor is not a big drinker.

Unless of course the giftee is watching their weight, has a gluten intolerance, or is allergic to food preservatives … An expensive, permanent gift may be more of a burden than a pleasure.

First there is the question of taste, as illustrated in this clip from the Big Bang Theory where Amy gives Penny a huge painting for teaching her how to be ‘cool’: The rest of the episode revolves around Penny hiding her horrified reaction to the ugly painting and her efforts to avoid hanging it in her house, but in such a way that she wont hurt Amy’s feelings.
