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.
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.
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 have someone mail them to you. Thankfully, lobster mail is now a reality.
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…
Flowers are a classic thank you 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.
Here’s what every parent really wants, even if they don’t want to admit it: “One night away from the kids! One night! Just a few hours even! A few minutes would do! Just please, someone, please watch these kids for a while and let me do something for me!” Say thank you by being that someone.
It would probably be underwhelming if you just gave someone a few pieces of fruit as a thank you present. But cut the fruit into shapes, skewer them on some sticks, and arrange them to look like a bouquet of flowers? Now that’s a thank you gift!
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.
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.
