Be a Butler For A Day
If you decide to do this, go all out. Show up at 5 in the morning dressed impeccably in a tuxedo. Proceed to handle all unpleasantness with quiet grace, never faltering, never betraying any emotion save unswerving loyalty to the person whom you owe bottomless gratitude.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pay it forward. Don’t just send a thank you gift and move on. Show your gratitude is real by helping someone else in the name of the one who helped you. There are plenty of deserving charities out there, so find a cause the person you want to say thanks to holds dear.
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.
Standard hotels are convenient and something of a social institution, but when it comes down to it they’re all the same, except that in the cheaper ones the desk clerks are a little creepier and the maids are drunker. Airbnb takes the predictability out of travel lodging and replaces it with an endless variety of unique experiences. The perfect thank you gift for people who appreciate the human touch.
If you really owe them big time, there’s no better way to show your gratitude then treating them to a day of shopping. If they would be hesitant to accept this type of monetary repayment from you, just tell them you won a free gift card to their favorite store but couldn’t find anything you wanted.
