If you are looking for a way to say thank you to another family, couple, or a person that has gone out of their way to help you, there are some things that you can do that don't require you to spend a lot of money. You don't have to go to the local gift shop or spend hours wondering what you can get them to tell them how grateful you are. Instead, a small gesture that doesn't cost a lot of money can be just as meaningful, especially if it's with you. Consider the following.
Dinner or Drinks
Dinner or drinks only costs you the amount to feed them, or for a few cocktails, but it shows you are going out of your way to spend time with them, and to show that you are grateful. Find a local restaurant that they have wanted to try, or somewhere that you know they like to go, and invite them out for a meal on you, and then everyone can spend some time together. If getting together is difficult to schedule, even a gift card to that local restaurant may be nice.
Concert or Show Tickets
If the two of you have a band or performance interest that you share, or their family likes a group of performers, getting them tickets for the event is something that they will enjoy. You can get tickets for you to go together, or you can send the couple or the family. This is a well thought out gift that isn't generic.
Food-Themed Gift Baskets
There are a variety of gift baskets you can send with trinkets and flowers, but something that they can enjoy or that you know that they like may be better. Look into these types of baskets:
- Meat and cheese baskets
- Wine and cracker baskets
- Fruit baskets
- Dessert and pastry baskets
- Coffee or tea baskets
The type that is the best for the person will depend on what they like, and what they would use and enjoy the most.
If you are looking for a way to say thank-you to someone and you want to do more than just write them a card or give them a generic gift card, these are some of the things that you can do. All of these options show you put some time and thought into the gift before you purchased it and made the arrangements.
