it's not appropriate to give a gift as an intern. Well worded thankyou email is perfect.

2 scenarios.

  1. Get FT offer - either thank you email, hand written note with a small gift (could do something they mentioned about during internship. make sure to adhere to company gift policies though)

  2. No FT offer - glitter letter (where glitter goes everywhere).
