5 Star Dinner
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.
If you really need to say thank you in a big way, like, maybe they’ve saved your life or something, then taking them on a vacation is probably the thing to do. Maybe take them on vacation every year. For the rest of your life.
Alcohol and gratitude have always gone together. But there’s nothing sappier than getting drunk and slobbering a thank you all over someone while they roll their eyes and look for a convenient way to exit. So why don’t you let the booze talk for itself? A custom wine label says it all, and says it classy.
There are lots of gift basket subscriptions out there, but when it comes to sweet, wholesome fruit, who better to turn to than “The Fruit Company”? With plenty of different combinations to choose from, and quality unlike anything you’re going to find at the grocery store, it’s just like planting a magic tree in the backyard and letting it do its thing. Except even a magic tree doesn’t deliver its fruit wrapped up all nice in a basket, and magic trees never think to include some cheese or jam as a bonus. When you think about it, magic trees are actually kind of lame. A fruit subscription is way better.
A great gift for repaying a small favor that could pay off in a big way - They do you a favor. You say thank you by giving them lottery tickets. They win a truckload of money. Now it’s them who owes you a thank you gift. They can certainly afford it.
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.
If you’re indebted to someone the best way to pay them back is with money. That’s pretty obvious. But giving cash feels a little impersonal, like you just bought their help. Turn that cash into a money bouquet, and now you’ve got a work of art, which they’ll feel better about accepting. At some point in the future they will pull it apart and spend the cash. Which is what you wanted in the first place.
Flowers are a classic gift, but they’ve got one fatal flaw: no matter how beautiful, they tend to wilt too soon. But you’re smarter than that - you like to play the long game. The Flower of the Month Club lets you automatically replenish those flowers at regular intervals so that there’s always a fresh collection in the recipient’s house. Even if you’re not a hippy, you can always employ a little “flower power” to make someone feel loved and appreciated.
Lobsters have many, many great qualities, not least among them are their nutritional and flavor profiles. But they’re dumb as dirt, exceptionally slow, and don’t drive. So if it’s inconvenient for you to go all the way to the ocean to find the best lobsters, you’re going to have to get someone to mail them to you. Thankfully, lobster mail is now a reality.
