Is it normal toget your therapist a christmas card?

I've been working with him on a weekly basis for 6 months and he has helped me a lot.

Should I get him a Christmas card? No gift, just a card.

Is It Normal?

  • Nothing weird. Your shrink helps you short your shit out, worth a card at least... and 300$ an hour.

    • I'm grateful I have good insurance that pays every cent of it. I don't even have to pay a co-pay.

      • Then its worth a 50 cent card. It's the thought that counts. Idk what shit you went through but a good shrink is hard to come by.

  • I'm not sure personally. It feels a little odd for me as even if a therapist helps me a lot they're still a therapist, just doing their job. It's not a personal relationship. I'd just tell them merry christmas at the end of the last appointment before christmas (if you're still seeing them) and leave it at that. To me a therapist is just a doctor but for the non-physical shit, I don't form emotional attachment to them because if I did I wouldn't be able to talk to them honestly.
    They're just someone who happened to be available for me to talk to. But even if I felt differently I probably wouldn't thank them in any such way.

  • Card is fine. A gift isn't unless it is something like a cookie. But what therapist would actually eat something from a person undergoing therapy. Just stick with the card.

  • Yes, but don't expect 1 in return because that would be unethical on his part.

  • If it’s just a simple “Dear X Merry Christmas From OP” I think that would be ok.
