A Different Gift To Send A Special Message

Jun 28, 2008
Sometimes we have to say thank you for a job well done, for being there when needed or simply to thank them for being a friend. There are many options for ways to say thank you beyond verbally saying it. Here are some of the best gifts that say thank you to someone who helped you in a specific way.

Give a handwritten note

Don't send an e-mail. E-mail is impersonal and a tacky way to say thank you. Instead, write something nice on your personal stationary. It shows that you took the time to craft a letter, (a lost art these days) because of what they did for you meant that much.

Give a small gift certificate

You may not know what they want, or what their interests are, but by giving a gift card for a large department store, you are ensuring they are able to pick out exactly what they are looking for. Gift certificates or cards are an excellent way to say a quick thank you and to make sure the recipient is happy with what they get.

Give a single flower

There is no need for a large bouquet of flowers to say thank you, although it is nice. A single flower says as much in its simplicity and can be more beautiful than wall-to-wall roses. Picking a flower from your own garden adds more emotional attachment to the gift.

Give a candy bar and single fruit

It is cheap, easy and almost healthy. Everyone loves fruit and everyone loves candy bars, so why not combine the two for a quick and easy way to say thank you. Make sure you know if someone is allergic to a specific fruit or candy ingredient, otherwise your thank you could go horribly wrong.

Bake some cookies

Who doesn't love cookies? Who doesn't love home baked cookies meant especially for them. Exactly, you can't go wrong with this one, and as long as you are a good cook, the recipient will be more than happy to dig into the cookies. They might even share one with you, it is the gift that keeps on giving.

These gifts are very easy to get and make. You do not have to go all out and over the top to say thank you to someone. There is elegance in simplicity and beauty in the small things of life.

The main point is that you say thank you and it is the thought that counts. Nothing is worse for someone than a good deed that never gets a quick thanks from the person you helped.
