Thanksgiving Day isn't the only day to show thanks to your loved ones! 💖
It doesn't even have to be loved ones/people you know for you to give thanks. It can be the person who helped pick up your groceries when you dropped them coming out of the store. Or the person delivering them when you order on Instacart! It can be the person who let you go 1st when in traffic, or even the person who didn't flip you off & honk their horn when you accidentally cut them off. (I bolded the ones below that would be nice/more appropriate for strangers)
Below are 20 ways on how you can show people your gratitude without breaking the bank. Most of these ideas are free!
Tell them you love them & are thankful they’re in your life
Write a letter/email/text
Buy them flowers
Send an edible arrangement
Set up a weekly date to FaceTime/video
Volunteer to be their accountability partner
Bring /order them soup when they’re sick
Send them a funny gif
Take them on a picnic
Give them a big hug
Surprise them with a random act of kindness
If they’re parents, offer to watch their kids
Be present when they speak to you
Smile and look them in the eyes
Write a recommendation for them on LinkedIn
Give them a compliment
When they’re venting to you, instead of giving advice, ask “how can I hold space for you”?
Celebrate them when they accomplish something
Host a gathering & invite them
Acknowledge them publicly
