Looking for ways to say ‘thank you’ this Christmas?
Want to show your appreciation for someone this year?
There are so many reasons why we’d like to thank someone:
- For their support
- For their help
- For their understanding
- For a gift
- For supporting a business
- For their time
- For brightening your day
- Just for being there
The list is endless!
Expressing gratitude strengthens our connections and bonds with each other and the smallest gesture can go a long way.
So take a look at our ideas for saying ‘thank you’ this Christmas:
May sound obvious but flowers, either personally hand-delivered or sent with a personalised message are universally appreciated.
Flower subscriptions are also a great idea. Fresh flowers are sent regularly, you choose for how long.
Suitable for all types of thank yous, flowers make beautiful and happy gifts.
- HANDMADE TREATS:
A wonderful way of saying thank you to someone is to bake for them. Or cook a meal! Everyone loves homemade goodies - cakes, biscuits, flapjacks, pies…!
Baking takes thought, time and effort and this will be very much appreciated.
- PERSONALISED GIFTS:
- A framed photo, photo collage (you can never have too many!) or selected photos put into an album.
- Blankets and throws, which can be personalised if wished.
- Gift-card for their favourite coffee shop or restaurant.
- A hamper with their favourite treats, we can help you with that - you can Make Your Own Hamper here.
- Gift-card for a hotel break.
These are heart warming gifts to say ‘thank you’.
- SPA/SELFCARE TREATS:
These types of gifts show you care about their well-being and are kind ways of showing your appreciation. They allow the recipient to take time for themselves and relax.
It could be:
- A selection of pampering products to boost the mind and soothe the body.
- A voucher for a spa break/ beauty treatment.
- Calming, peaceful candles.
- HANDWRITTEN COFFEE MUG:
A light-hearted but thoughtful keepsake, why not give them a mug as a way of thanking them?
Personalise with their name, a message or (if you're really artistic) a handrawn photo. Here is a guide on how to personalise a mug at home.
- PET PORTRAIT:
Your recipient will cherish a customised painting of their pet. A wonderful alternative to a photo, it makes a personal and touching ‘thank you’ gift.
