Experiences Are The Best Gifts
There are not many “things” that we treasure above our memories. Who would trade the remembered experience with someone we love for a mere physical object. So instead of buying something for someone, do something with them instead. You will never regret it.
Taking them out for a nice dinner is a pretty classic thank you gift, but honestly, they may have had enough of you by now. Get them a gift card to OpenTable and them them go out to the restaurant of their choice, with whoever they actually want to go with.
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.
When traveling, some people really like an element of predictability to anchor their experience in an unfamiliar place. With a recognizable name like Hilton, you know exactly what to expect. Unfortunately, that name and that predictability come at a premium. What better way to say thank you then taking the sting out of a vacation’s most expensive element by picking up the tab ahead of time?
Whatever they did to earn a Harry & David’s basket as a thank you gift must have been pretty danged special. Like, did they rescue you from a burning building? Give you a winning lottery ticket? Slay a the dragon threatening your castle? Because these baskets are incredible.
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.
When someone has done something good for you, it’s time to show your gratitude. But you’re a tough guy (or gal), and you just can’t seem to choke the words out. It’s like trying to swallow tree bark. Here’s a nice, sweet way to let someone know you appreciate whatever it is they did.
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.
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!
