Creative Ways to Say Thank You
November is nearing its end, and as we prepare for the winter chill and the festive frenzy of the holiday season, Thanksgiving is a time to stop, take stock and be thankful for everything and everyone in your life.
When it comes to recognizing what you have and showing your loved ones how happy you are to have them, why not express your appreciation with some selfless gifts and gestures? Christmas may be just around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start giving gifts now — just to show you care. If you’re looking for some creative ways to say thank you to your loved ones this Thanksgiving, start with these sweet ideas.
Getting the Little Things Done
Gifts don’t always have to come with cards and wrapping paper — thoughtful gestures can mean just as much, if not more, than the best-picked store-bought present. Is there something your loved one always gets done for you — like folding the laundry, doing the dishes, taking out the trash, getting the groceries or doing some cleaning around the house? Perhaps they bring you a cup of coffee every morning. Or maybe there’s a particular chore or task you know your loved one dreads but does anyway.
This Thanksgiving, return the favor to show them just how much they mean. Beat them to the task and get some extra work done around the house. Take care of their least favorite chore to take some pressure off of them. It will mean the world.
Taking the Hint
Is there something you know your spouse or loved one has been coveting for ages but hasn’t sprung for — like a particular piece of jewelry or clothing, a gym membership, a subscription to an app or program or something special to put up in the house? Surprise them this Thanksgiving by treating them to it — they’ll be touched not only by the gesture itself but also by the fact that you’ve been listening.
Crossing off the Bucket List
If you want to spring for a big gesture, think about whether your loved one has a bucket list. Is there somewhere they’ve always dreamed of going or an activity they’ve always wanted to try but never been able to? Show your loved one you support their dreams and invest in their happiness by helping them cross an item off their bucket list. Skydiving? A cruise? If you’re looking for a big-ticket gesture, this is it.
Making a Home-Cooked Meal
Sometimes the sweetest way to say thanks for everything your loved one does for you is to warm their heart and their stomach with a home-cooked meal.
