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

My student told me that, in his culture, it was a sign of respect for your teacher if you give them a ‘permanent’ kind of present.

It was his way of telling me I had made a difference and I was touched.

Five years ago, a student gave me a little brass plate on a stand with an etched view of Hong Kong harbour.

I am no stranger to the odd bottle of wine or box of chocolates, but a little brass plate on a stand was unexpected kind of gift from a student.

If you are in doubt, maybe just write them a Christmas card. Are you studying in another country and therefore living in a different ‘gift culture’ than you are used to?

What do you think is the appropriate gift giving etiquette for the supervisor student relationship?

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

Just make sure you don’t give your supervisor food poisoning…

For that reason I say that chocolates are probably a safer choice. Home baked goods The key advantage of the wine / chocolate gift is that they are meant to be consumed.

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.
