How We Selected the Gifts for the Ph.D. Students
When looking for a Ph.D. gift I look for quality as it is important to give a gift that is not cheaply made. It can be inexpensive but should be durable and of good quality. there are so many products on the market and when you buy online items can be deceptive. Always consider the specialness of the person you are purchasing a gift for.
Gender, Personality and Budget
The second thing I look for is a variety of items to cover all genders, personalities, and budgets. When someone graduates with their Ph.D. it is a big deal to them. A lot of hard work went to that degree and it is about so much more than a piece of paper or a salary increase. the effort, dedication, knowledge, research, and time put into a dissertation take s special kin=d of commitment to complete. I take my hat off to those who complete and move into the Ph.D. realm!
