Saying thank you can be hard. As much as it is extremely good for us to remember our Ps and Qs and be polite, it does make it harder for us to make someone know exactly how grateful we are for something they have done just by saying the words thank you.
Instead, if you truly want to thank someone, you need to make a gesture rather than simply saying the words.One of the best places to start is with a handwritten letter. Taking time to write a letter shows that you have not only taken the time to say exactly how much you want to thank them, but have done it in a very personal way too. With so many people using technology to communicate, something written by hand will be even more cherished than ever.
Thank you flowers will also make a big difference. You can get same day flowers and make the gesture even more impressive as they will be able to get their thank you flowers so quickly that it will prove just how important to you it is that they know how grateful you are. Same day flowers are also a great way to be individual as you can create a bunch that is totally aimed towards them whether you use their favourite flower or a bunch that is their favourite colour.
Finally, make sure you say it in the right way. Using clichés in your letter or just sending a generic bunch that you have put no thought into will make it seem like a courtesy you felt obliged to do, but making sure the gesture seems honest and from the heart, with a lot of thought put into, will show that you really do want them to know that you treasure their deed.
So when you want to thank someone, make sure you don’t tell them. Make sure you show them.
