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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…
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 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.
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.
