It is always nice to know that you are in someone’s thoughts or to have some support when you are going through a hard time. Whether this is a close friend or relative, or even a colleague who has helped you out at work, it is important to make sure that those around you who have offered you that support and given you their consideration know that you appreciate it. If you are wondering how to say thank you to an individual or a group of people for helping you through a rough patch, or just want to show them how much you appreciate their existence, here are some great ways to do this.

1.   Send Flowers

This is a simple but effective way to offer a token of your appreciation, and flowers are always lovely to receive. They can help to brighten up any room, and a bouquet sent from a professional florist is all the more special. Often you can add other gifts such as chocolates, small bottles of sparkling wine, a vase for the receiver to keep, or other items if you want to take this gift a step further.

2.   Gift Hamper

If flowers don’t seem appropriate for the person you’re trying to thank or show them that they’re in your thoughts, a gift hamper can be a perfect alternative. Often these hampers are filled with tasty treats, or perhaps a selection of fine wines, but you can also get gifts stocked with beauty products, book goodies, games, or other items that would suit their personality well. You can easily find the perfect range of hampers to choose from with a quick online search, and there will be something for every budget too.

3.   Take Them Out for Dinner

If you have a close enough relationship with this person, whether that is professional or personal, taking them out for a meal is another way you can show your appreciation for what they have done for you, or to celebrate a special occasion. Treating them to a delicious dinner at a quality restaurant is always a pleasant experience and a great treat when someone else is footing the bill.

4.   Write a Personal Letter

Letter writing might seem like a thing of the past in the digital age (and you could always choose to send an email if you would prefer), but there is still something special about receiving a handwritten letter in the post. Taking the time to write a letter to express your gratitude or to offer some words of support or comfort will be a lovely surprise and the receiver is likely to be truly touched.

5.   Tickets to a Show or Other Experience

Another option you could explore is getting them tickets to a gig, theatre performance, or even another type of experiences like a spa day or a fun tour that they might be interested in. It’s a great opportunity for you both to spend some quality time together, or for them to take a friend or relative out for the day if you are unavailable or don’t have that kind of relationship.

If you want to show your gratitude to someone and let them know how much you have appreciated their help or their presence in your life, consider these suggestions and see which one would be most suitable for your circumstances.
