1 Day of Yard Work
When you’re indebted to someone who wouldn’t want you to get them a gift, the best way to repay them is with some hard work. Everyone has an endless list of chores and projects around the house that never seem to get done. Cross a few things off for them. It’s free, and it’s a genuine way to show them how grateful you are.
Say thank you by helping them get away and recharge in a faraway place where nobody knows them and they can act however they want with virtually no longstanding social repercussions. Because when things get tough, evacuation is usually the only solution.
They scratched your back, so you need to scratch theirs. Or better yet, forget the scratching and just get them a massage. With a SpaFinder gift card they’ll be feeling pretty good about helping you out, so you know they’ll be there next time you need them to bail you out. The card is good for all kinds of things like facials, yoga, massage and more at thousands of locations across the country.
Who knew this was a thing? Say thanks by giving someone an investment portfolio! Pick a stock and a dollar amount, and they get a fractional amount of stock equivalent to what you spent that they can keep or trade or sell for cash as they wish.
Everybody loves good cheffin’! Turn your thank you gift into a culinary experience by taking them out to the finest restaurant in town. And don’t skimp. Get every course, get the wine, have coffee afterwards. The works. It's a classic that never fails.
Need something that shows the size of your gratitude? The scale of your appreciation? Giant candy is the way to go. Not only does it say thank you in a big way, it also says thank you in the sweetest way possible, and it gives you the perfect opportunity to return the favor if they need a lift to the dentist to check for cavities in a few months time…
Back in the old days you were really rolling the dice when you chose a hotel. Either you called blindly after skimming the phone book or simply drove all night and hoped you saw a vacancy sign before you ran out of gas and got murdered by a vagrant. A hotels.com gift card is not just a way of picking up the tab for a night’s stay; it’s also the priceless gift of peace of mind. When they get back they'll be the one thanking you. Who knows? You might just get a gift card.
Show your appreciation by buying them a couple tickets to a cool event, show, or concert. Get two tickets so they can take their significant other or a friend. Don’t be weird and try to get them to let you have the second ticket with some not-so-subtle strategy. This is not your gift.
We’re not sure what someone could do to earn a thank you gift this good, but it must have been spectacular. Think about it: you’re giving them a year of free shipping on millions of products plus access to one of the biggest streaming video libraries out there. Whoa.
