When to Be Extra Thoughtful with
Your Holiday Thank You Gifts
Does the following sound familiar?
The gifts have been shared and adored. You find yourself reminiscing about the lovely time you had, staying with a close friend or family through the holidays. They mean so much to you, and you'd like to send a gesture of thanks for the wonderful memories.
Or perhaps this?
You enjoyed a thoughtful gesture, such as a neighbor clearing your driveway for you. Or a loved one surprised you with an heirloom you'll adore for years to come. You appreciated their thoughtfulness so much that you want to spread the good cheer around one more time.
If either of those strike a chord, we have some suggestions for giving an unexpected, but soon to be cherished, treat to the loved one that made your holiday unforgettable:
Take the time to hand write a thank you letter or card. We have some great tips to get you started!
Schedule time to have them over when they're next in town.
Create a heartfelt journal of written memories and photos of your time together.
Buy a gift that reflects what's special about your loved one, like a book featuring their favorite animal, unique artisanal jewelry or fashion accessories, kitchen supplies for the chef, or an art piece for the museum-goer.
For a host you stayed with, a memento representing the town they live in is incredibly thoughtful. It's also considerate to give a home essential that you noticed your host needs. To go above and beyond fabulous, here's our top ten gift ideas for the host.
Treat them to relaxation with an in-home spa set.
Find a gift that will help them make the most of their free time, such as a flowing set of loungewear, or perhaps an item that complements their hobbies.
Schedule a dinner reservation at their favorite restaurant, or get tickets to an event they would like near them.
Remind them through the year how wonderful they are, by treating them to a monthly gift of a beautiful floral arrangement or a crate of delicious treats.
You'll feel even more joyful knowing that your loved ones and neighbors will feel appreciated. Your gift will tell them that you fondly remember their kindness this holiday season.
