    Hey,
    The question is kind of obvious but I will give more details:

    I have this lecturer that I really respect and like, he is in his mid-50 I would say, he's extremely shy but we kind of get along everytime I go to his office (nothing more than just a few chats and questions related to the lectures) but there is a good friendly connection

    I wanted to get him something to basically thank him for all the efforts he has made to answer my questions and just for being so nice


    I wanted to get him a bottle of Algerian wine (since I am Algerian), I thought it would be great to get him something that unusual and so hard to find in the UK.

    I have discussed it with a friend and he said that it seems kind of inappropriate, I dont want to seem like I am hitting on him, and most importantly, I don't want to make him incomfortable

    To me it seems really normal to get gifts to a lecturer but I guess these are just conflicting cultural codes

    Should I get him that bottle of wine?

    Why would he think your hitting on him, you don't swing for the other team do you?
