Thank you gifts — simple, straightforward, with the deft touch of surprise; that’s what I like about them. I liken a thank you gift to an unassuming, down-to-earth girl with mystery in her eyes and magic in her smile. Plain? Anything but.
Most people, who’ve done something for you or helped you out in any way, would be satisfied with a verbal thanks. But, when you go beyond the ordinary, when you go beyond the mundane way of doing things, that’s when the good stuff happens.
And the best part of a thank you gift? No limits, no rules and, the money you spend (or don’t) is irrelevant. What matters is that through your thank you gift, you’re conveying how much you value the support, just how thankful you are.
Here are 10 different ways to say ‘thank you’ to someone.
