I have a lovely professor who I've become very close with over the past three years. I am an international student and we are both from the same original culture.
I recently finished my master's and am now working in a job in industry. I really admire my advisor and he is one of my role models.
I had my defense a few weeks ago. He lives in another city and is planning to drive to the city that I live with his wife. He invited me out for a lunch with his wife.
I’m very excited to go, but I do not really know what to buy for him and his wife. I am going to meet him in person after a long time, all our meetings were over Zoom so far. It is the first time that I am going to meet his wife.
Considering that they are coming to be in my city and they will be staying at a hotel overnight. How can I be a good host since they are driving to my city? What should I buy? Thanks for your advice. They have not chosen any restaurant yet, should I initiate and choose a restaurant, and pay the bills? He doesn't drink wine.
At some point, I would like to go back to do my Ph.D. So I would like to leave him with a good impression.
