I'm looking for some ideas for interesting gifts to thank people for help, tell them I'm thinking of them or just to brighten people's days.
I'm trying to express myself and be more appreciative, friendly and thankful to those around me who support and help me succeed. Along with verbal and written acknowledgements, I'm looking for other opportunities for people who've gone above and beyond to help me out. I've started baking cookies and brownies for folks, but don't them to think I'm just trying to fatten them up, so I'm looking for other ideas.
Ideally, inexpensive is better than expensive -- I'm not trying to really impress people by throwing around lots of money or make them think they have to write me a thank you note for the thank you gift, just give them a laugh or show them I appreciate them.
I love the unique stuff offered by Think Geek:
Stuff like that, and/or stuff like that for non-geeks would be awesome. Some of the cards form SomeEcards are awesome, but some are really not appropriate for the professional environment.
Any suggestions, ideas or thoughts?
Thanks for your help!
