Saying Thank You with a Gift Caricature

Saying “thank you’ is one of the smallest sentences you can say, but has huge impact on the person receiving it if done from the heart. Reports say that saying “thank you” over “thanks” can increase the pleasure of comment by over 50% in the way a person receives it. “Thank you” sounds more genuine and heart felt making it the preferred way to say thank you. Since I read that many years ago I have tried to use “thank you” over “thanks” whenever I want to tell someone how much I appreciate their work or service. It’s a small thing but a big thing as well.

If words can improve the way a person receives appreciation what would a gift do? The way the gift is received will determine how the appreciation is perceived. Gift giving takes appreciation giving to another level. Some people are focused on money and how much a gift costs to determine it’s worth level, others focus on finding something fast like a gift card to show appreciation. Those methods work fine but if you want to show real appreciation then a heartfelt gift that’s unique regardless of the price is the way to go. It can be the cheapest gift and even homemade but if it is given from the heart and personalized for the person receiving it then it will be a hit. Price doesn’t come into play at all. Some of the greatest gifts are those that are passed down from a former family member or something created by someone with their own hands. You can’t beat those gifts because they are from the heart.

Some of the most unique gifts are gift caricatures and they fit a variety of situations whether for someone retiring, a unique gift for Christmas, or just a way to say thank you. They are personal, created by hand, and given from the heart, so they are always effective. The one issue with gift caricatures that you have to think about is the time factor. Because of their unique status they do have to be created, you can’t walk into Walmart and buy a gift caricature. Most gift caricatures take two to three weeks to create and even longer in busy periods like Christmas, so think ahead. Need ideas for your gift caricature, click here!
