Most of us have at least one friend that we can completely rely on. They’ll help you settle into your new home, look after your pets when you are out of town for a business assignment or lend a helping hand at your sister’s wedding, this endless list of favours can just go on. So, never let their gestures, their acts of kindness or lending a helping hand go unacknowledged and unappreciated. There are so many ways to thank them for all that they do to make your life shine.
From a box of assorted chocolates to handcrafted cards or the latest e-gift cards, possibilities are simply endless. Choose something that suits you as well as them, something that forms a memorable gift as a sweet ‘thank you’. Let’s discuss the top 6 ways to thank them for being there with you.
- Handcrafted or Greeting cards
Handcrafted cards or the old fashion greeting cards are seriously great for your best friend. If you have a creative bend of mind, make a card and write the words that you actually want to say to them, but if you are not all that creative, just choose a card that represents their as well as your personality and style. And do not forget to write a personal message as it is this personal touch that makes it even more special.
- Do Something Special for them
Take them out to dinner or a movie or may be prepare a meal for them. Make them feel special and appreciated and let them know how grateful you are to have them in your life.
- Make a You-tube Video
Hearing someone say their message sounds great, but what if they take it a step forward and create a you-tube video as a thank you gift. May be ‘awesome’ is the word that comes to your mind!
- Deliver cookies or chocolates
Who doesn’t like a box of chocolates or handmade cookies? Spoil your friends with a box full of chocolates and cookies and give them a sweet treat that they surely deserve. And as a thumb rule, do not forget to include a personal message.
- E-gift Coupons
If you are not very sure of what they would like as a gift, an e-gift coupon from their favourite brand comes as the best choice. There is simply no point giving something that they may not like. Instead opt for e-gift vouchers from premium shopping brands and let them shop for what they like.
- Reciprocate Their Help
There is no better way to thank a friend than reciprocating their help when they need it the most. It is never considered cool to give a random gift to a friend who helped you in the difficult hour and then forget the favour. Help them back, even volunteer for it, and they will never think twice before holding your hand again in difficult situation.
A good friend is hard to find, never let them feel unappreciated for being there with you. Express your gratitude in a way that suits you the best.
