Thank You Gifts

It isn’t about feeling obligated, thank you gifts are a great way to truly show your appreciation when someone does something nice for you! Whether it is a friend, family member, coworker, or a service worker, a simple gift is a great way to let someone know you really are thankful for their help. A wonderful doctor, a great mailman who always goes out of his way to say hello, a friend who was there for you while you were sick, or a family member who took time to help you out. No matter the occasion, a thank you gift is always appreciated. If you are unsure what the perfect gift is, look no further. Our selection of thank you gifts ideas are appropriate and also gifts people actually want to get! If you always get someone a box of chocolate and a card, think about something different this time around!

10 Things to Consider When Buying a Thank You Gift

Looking to tell someone ‘thank you’ by getting them a nice gift? Keep these ten things in mind while you shop!

1. Keep it simple

Keep in mind that (minus a few exceptions) a thank you gift is supposed to be something simple that is a nice show of appreciation for what someone did for you. This is not the time to overwhelm them with a large gift, in most cases that will make them feel uncomfortable! Instead, pick something nice and sweet that you know they will enjoy.

2. When in doubt, pick something else

On the fence, if the gift is appropriate? Err on the side of caution and go with something else! The last thing you want to do is make someone uncomfortable when you are just trying to do something nice. Instead, pick something that you know will make them happy and won’t be even sort of questionable.

3. Be consistent

Did you recently get help from a group of people? Perhaps it is the end of the school year and you want to thank your teachers? Be sure to not accidentally insult someone by including everyone and getting them all a thank you gift.

Did your siblings recently help you move? Don’t just get a gift for one of them, be sure to include them all! While the gift itself isn’t necessary, it can end up causing tension if you aren’t careful. If you don’t think you can afford gifts for a group of people, it is best to not get anyone anything so you don’t upset anyone by mistake. That is the opposite of what you are trying to accomplish!

4. Don’t spend too much

Similar to what we mentioned in tip #1, be sure you don’t spend too much money on your thank you gift. For most people, an expensive gift will make them feel uncomfortable and like they ‘owe’ you something in return. That is not the point of a thank you gift. All you want to do is make the person feel appreciated, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to do that. Gifts from the heart are always more special than gifts that cost a lot of money, especially in this situation.

5. Be careful of allergies/restrictions

If you are getting someone a gift, especially if it is food or drink, make sure you are aware of any allergies they may have. Again, if you aren’t sure, pick something else! Also keep in mind a person’s personal preferences, diet, or even religious views. If someone chooses not to drink alcohol, a nice bottle of wine will probably not make the best thank you gift!

6. Food can be a good idea

Don’t let tip five scare you away from getting someone food. Food can make for a great gift idea - who doesn’t like food?? Whether you get someone a nice assorted gift basket or even cook or bake them something yourself, it is sure to be incredibly appreciated and enjoyed. Do you know their favorite food or dessert? That makes for a great gift idea!

7. Say something

Actions do speak louder than words, but that doesn’t mean words aren’t nice or aren’t appreciated! While an actual gift is certainly wonderful, including a handwritten thank you card will take your gift to the next level. Take some time (we are talking just a few minutes - not a lifetime!) and write something heartfelt to the person who helped you out. We promise it will mean the world to them!

8. Personalize it

If you are worried that your gift feels too impersonal, personalize it! No matter what the gift is, there is likely a way to make it more personal. Whether that means having something engraved or embroidered or simply drawn, you can turn the gift into something meant just for that person. If you are trying to cut costs, do the personalization yourself. If you aren’t that crafty, maybe recruit a friend who is, or look into cost effective options.

9. Figure out their interests

A great way to ensure you get someone a thank you gift they will enjoy is by understanding what they like. Do they enjoy going out to dinner? The movies? Travel? Art? Sports? Even a basic idea of something they like can help tailor your gift idea and ensure it is something they will really enjoy. If you aren’t sure, try asking around and getting info from a co-worker, friend, or family member!

10. Pay it forward

Finally, sometimes the best thank you gift idea is simply to pay it forward! If someone has done something nice for you, take the time to do something nice for them in return. While ‘getting even’ is not the right mindset when doing something nice (as in, if I do something nice for you, you better return the favor!) returning the favor can actually be a great thing to do, especially when it is your idea and not the idea of the person who did something nice!

Unique Thank You Gifts

In a world filled with distractions and bad news, it is important to remember all of the wonderful people in your life who do great things. From simple acts of kindness to larger favors, there is so much good out there in the world. So, what is the best thing to do to acknowledge those good things? Get those people a thank you gift!

The gift does not have to be expensive, but simply taking the time to get something to thank someone for their work is something that the person is not soon to forget. For most people, doing something nice for someone else is done out of kindness, not for recognition. However, no one could deny how nice it is to be recognized!

Whether you get a small Christmas gift for your mailman, a spa set for a special nurse who took care of you, a sweet basket for your favorite teacher at school, or something similar for a co-worker, friend, or family member, this gesture is a great way to truly show how thankful you are.

Sometimes words aren’t enough, it is nice to go the extra mile! Anyone truly deserving of a thank you gift would never expect one, but that is what makes them so special! A thank you gift is not only nice, it is a pleasant surprise that will raise the spirits of anyone who receives it.

What to Get? That's What We Are Here For!

It is easy to decide that someone is deserving of a thank you gift, but the hard part is deciding what to get! Especially if you are purchasing a gift for someone who you do not know well or someone you work with, you do not want to get anything that could be considered inappropriate. You also want to make sure you aren’t purchasing too extravagant of a gift (you don’t want to make the person feel bad!) Rather, the gift should be a sweet token that shows your appreciation for the help they gave you.

Not sure where to start? You came to the perfect place. Our gift guide is filled with perfect options that make for great thank you gifts. Depending on who you are shopping for, you can find an appropriate and thoughtful gift that will make their day.

Making Memories with a Thank You Gift

Are you looking for a gift for your spouse? Sometimes a more expensive gift is okay, it just depends on the situation! Did they recently help you score a new job? Help you through the loss of a loved one? There are plenty of wonderful things we do for our loved ones, and a thank you gift is just one way to show your appreciation. For those very special moments, and the most special people in your life, sometimes a nicer thank you gift is more than appropriate.

It is always the right time to say thank you to someone and get them a nice gift! Take them by surprise and get them something truly special that they will appreciate for years to come.

Whether the gift is more long lasting or is meant to be enjoyed quickly, the memory itself will last a lifetime. As it is said, people always remember the way you made them feel! A thank you gift is a great way to make someone feel good and feel appreciated.
