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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Stroke someone’s ego again and again with a fancy box full of compliments. They’ll feel so good about themselves that they’ll be eager to help you again. Remember, flattery will get you everywhere.
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.
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.
