Sometimes a simple gift is a perfect way to say "Thanks." The gift doesn't have to be expensive.

  • Consider homemade cookies, or a simple bouquet of flowers as ways to show your gratitude.

3. Say Thanks with a Banner or Sign

An unexpected banner or sign that expresses your gratitude is a fun way to say "Thanks."

  • The sign can be any size and can be hand lettered or professionally printed. You can choose to put up a banner written with chalk on their garage door or have a sign maker create a printed banner or sign to be placed in the front of their house. Either way, you will surprise them and they will feel your gratitude.

What you say on the sign is up to you:

  • You don't have to specify exactly what they did. 
  • The key is to surprise them with seeing your gratitude expressed in a public way.

5. Say Thanks with a Letter or Card

5. Say Thanks with a Letter or Card

Sometimes your "Thank You" begs for a little more explanation than you could give on a brief note or banner. This is when you need to write a letter or card.

  • Be sure to customize the card by mentioning what they gave you and how you will use it. 
  • If someone was particularly thoughtful or kind, be sure to mention specifically what it is they did or gave you. If you enjoyed spending time with them, recap a particularly fun part of the trip.

Regardless of whether you say "Thanks" with a gift, a card, or a banner, the important thing to remember is to give your thanks quickly and with sincerity.
