When someone goes out of their way to help you, it is important to say “thank you” in a way that really emotes the appreciative feelings you have. Sometimes a thank you card is just not enough. At the stationary store, thank you cards are a dime a dozen with words and phrases chosen by the card companies. Instead of using a simple thank you card to show your appreciation, why not try one of the following unique ways of saying thank you? You’ll be glad you did!
First, try making something homemade. It’s always better to give gifts that you have worked on yourself. They are definitely more heartfelt than many other things. If there are specific words you want to say, make a card for the person you want to thank. Get out some construction paper, stamps and ink pads, colored pencils, crayons or markers, and go to town! Use your inner artist to make a card that comes from the heart.
If cards aren’t your thing, why not bake something? A cake or cookies are always great presents. Sometimes, though, you may simply not have time to bake your own goods for someone else, or you may just not be very good in the kitchen. That’s OK! That’s why places like Cookies by Design exist. At Cookies by Design, you can order cookie baskets that say exactly what you mean. You can order a wide variety of different cookie bouquets and cookie baskets to fit the occasion. Nothing says thank you like cookies, after all! These cookie baskets can also be used for other occasions like birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and other holidays. You can even get next day delivery if you need the gift right away.
A final idea for a unique way to say thank you is a gift card or gift certificate. Especially when people are short of money, they may always use any extra funds they may have for food, bills or paying off debt. That’s no fun! If you buy a gift card or gift certificate for someone at a specific store or restaurant that they like, they will be “forced” to spend it there. Perhaps a friend you would like to say thank you to enjoys drawing and painting. Get him or her a gift certificate to a local art supplies store, and let them pick out something that will be useful to their hobby.
All in all, saying thank you is about the gesture, but it’s most fun to pick out something that really tells the person you want to thank how much he or she means to you. Pick one of the ideas in this article the next time you want to show your appreciation, and be glad you made someone happy today!
