I recently found out that my math professor's birthday is coming up. As a student, do you think it would be appropriate to get this professor a small gift (like see's candy or something like that)? I've known her for a few years and she isn't even my professor this semester. So it isn't a matter of sucking up but just that she's just been a good advisor and a great faculty friend to me. What do you guys think? Is it appropriate to buy a professor a birthday gift? If so, what kind of gift?
