The holiday season is a crazy time for parties, gatherings with family and friends, gift-giving and overall excitement. Once the festivities are over and you have a moment to catch your breath, you should think of the individuals that made a difference in your life this holiday season. Maybe a relative gave you an extremely generous, thoughtful gift, or a friend watched your children on short notice when the babysitter fell through. No matter the favor, large or small, it’s important that you show your appreciation. Here are five ideas for thank-you gifts you can send to the people who have made your holiday special:
- Guilt-Free Sweets
With all the sugary desserts everyone has been eating during the holiday season, you might want to send along a tasty treat that won’t have your recipient feeling too stuffed. Try sending along some healthy snacks, like a fresh fruit basket. There are also plenty of different delivery boxes with health-conscious snacks that can show your appreciation while keeping their New Year’s resolution intact.
- Appreciative Arrangements
When you want to thank someone for making your holiday season special, you can’t go wrong with a classic-yet-chic bouquet of flowers. Check out Teleflora’s selection of winter flowers, which will bring color and life into their homes even during the cold and gloomy months of winter.
- Gracious Gift Cards
Naturally, one of the easiest, most useful ways to show your appreciation for someone is through a gift card. You might decide to treat them to a meal at their favorite restaurant or put the gift card toward a few drinks at their favorite coffee shop. Not only is this a gift that anyone will love, it’s easy to get; all you have to do is stop into the business of your choice or go onto their favorite retailer’s website to order a gift card in the desired amount.
- Take a Page Out of Our Book
If your friend is a big reader – or has made a resolution to read more books in 2019 – you might consider getting them a new book. Maybe they’ve had their eye on a recent best seller or have always wanted to read one of the classics. Or perhaps you’ve heard good things about a book and think that your friend might enjoy it. It’s a small yet thoughtful gift that will allow them to think of you as they turn the pages or catch a glimpse of it on their shelf.
- Sincerely, You
If you’ve spent too much money during the holidays, you might prefer giving your friend a gift that won’t cost you much – if anything – at all. Instead of giving them a material item, consider sending a personalized note or letter in which you detail your gratitude, reminisce on your friendship and thank them for their support. With all the gifts still sitting under their tree, your friend would love to receive a gift that won’t take up space, but that displays your care in a non-tangible way.
