How do you tell someone you appreciate them? In some cases, writing a simple thank you note may not seem enough. To truly show your appreciation, it helps to get creative. Here are some thoughtful thank you gift ideas.
Write a Special Message
While a thank you note alone may not be enough, writing something heartfelt can make the thank you message stand out. Writing a longer, more creative thank you note in the form of a letter or poem takes more time than scrawling a few sentences on a card. These messages can also serve double duty because they can easily become part of a larger gift. For instance, if you decide to send a gift basket, you can include your special message with the delivery to give it a personal touch.
Send a Gift Basket
The nice thing about gift baskets is that you can easily tailor your basket to the individual. For instance, plenty of ready-made gift baskets appeals to different palettes. Nothing says thank you better than a gift basket filled with gourmet treats! For example, if your recipient loves chocolate, your basket can include all of their favorites, or if they love Italian food, you can send a basket filled with all of the ingredients for a homemade meal.
Send Baked Goods
Who wouldn’t want to receive a hand-delivered cookie or brownie gift as a thank you gift?! Treats are almost always a hit. You can even include a special thank you message with it!
Make Them Something
Making something special is another excellent way to show someone how much you appreciate him. Ideas include creating an edible gift, making a special keepsake, or using your crafting skills to make something they’d love, such as a hand-knit scarf. The secret to making a desirable handmade gift is to find something that they’ll appreciate.
Buy a Gift Card
There are so many gift cards available, and it’s easy to include them with a note and any thank you gift. When choosing a gift card, it helps to know their interests. Ideally, you’ll want to buy a gift card that they’ll get a lot of use out of.
Instead of simply sending a thank you note, try out one of these thoughtful ideas instead!
