Coming up with gift ideas isn’t always something that comes easily to everyone. Depending on how well you do or don’t know someone, you may be completely stumped on what kind of a gift to give them.
For the occasion of giving a gift as a way of saying thank you, there are a few gifts which stand out from others. Here are some of the best gift ideas which do the trick of saying “thank you” in a big way.
A Personalized Gift
Giving a gift which has an extra touch of personal flair makes something more personal and meaningful. The nice thing about personalized gifts is that you can either buy them or do them yourself.
Either way has the same amount of sentimentality and thoughtfulness and will be appreciated. Ideas include anything from personalized photo frames, to t-shirts or even coffee cups. The end result will be something unique which no one else has other than that person.
Gifting a service to someone can be a great way to encourage them to take a break and enjoy themselves. Whether it’s giving them a massage, a manicure or pedicure, or anything else which will help them relax and feel pampered, it’s sure to brighten up their day.
If you don’t know the person very well just make sure that you’ve done your homework and give them something that is relevant to their interests.
Gifting an experience is something unique because rather than giving someone something that they can hold in their hands you’re giving them an unforgettable memory.
Experiences have the potential to be even better than something tangible since it’s something enjoyed and appreciated. Rather than simply used or consumed.
If you’re not sure what kind of an experience to get, base it off of what their interests are. Some people may love sporting events, while others are huge fans of live theatre. Your gift will ultimately depend on the individual character of the person you’re trying to say thank you to.
A Gift Certificate
There is a common misconception that a gift certificate comes across as generic or less than heartfelt. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Giving someone the ability to be able to choose their own gift from a place which they enjoy is the ultimate freedom and luxury.
There is the drawback of course of them being able to see how much you spent on the gift. However much you want to spend is up to your own discretion and it all depends on how much of a “thank you” that you’re looking to express.
That’s not to say that you should necessarily put yourself in debt either. Find a nice balance which fits comfortably into your budget. At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts.
