Pick Them Up In A Limo
Here’s a classy gift that says thank you in a bold way. Tell them you want to take them out for dinner but show up in a stretch limo. They will be begging to do you more favors. Seriously. Don’t forget the champagne.
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.
The beer world has truly exploded with breweries over the last decade-plus, which is great for anyone who likes trying new things. However, this proliferation of choice has a dark side. Dyed-in-the-wool beer lovers now face overwhelming anxiety every time they go to pick up a six pack or fill up a growler. The Craft Beer Club removes this pain point by making the necessary choices for all involved, so beer time can go back to being the sweet revelation it used to be.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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…
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.
