Thanks a Million! - Gift Basket

Expressing gratitude is such an important gesture in personal and business relationships, yet, so often people never get around to it. It’s not because we are ungrateful creatures, but we so easily get caught up in a daily routine, that we let the moment slip by.

However, sending someone a token of your appreciation, be it a thank you note or a gift, is such a powerful tool that it can open doors that might otherwise be closed; it can influence people to help you; it can create lasting friendships and partnerships.

When to send a Thank You gift?
Good manners require that you send a thank you gift when you have been a guest at someone’s house; when you have been referred to a potential client, for service above and beyond, or any time when someone spent their personal time to help you.

What all people want is to feel appreciated.
This stems from our very human need to know that we are useful. And by the way, a little recognition prompts our brains to release the feel-good chemical, dopamine. So, when someone does something nice for you – they feel good because they satisfy their desire to be useful. When you send them a thank you gift or a note of appreciation, they feel happy because their usefulness was recognized.

How would you feel if someone sent a thank you gift to you?
You would feel great! And you would never forget the person who took the time to send a gift that made you feel so good. Keep that in mind and always remember to show your appreciation, be it in a form of a thank you note or a thank you gift basket.
