10 Great Gifts for Terrific Thank Yous!

Sometimes, a simple thank you card isn't enough. Your thank you cards might be stylish, personalized and expertly written, but there are some occasions that call for a more substantial gift to accompany your thank you cards. These events can be anything from a warm welcome at a friend's home to an overnight stay on your neighbor's yacht–anything that makes you feel particularly grateful to a friend or loved one. Here are ten great gifts to slip inside your thank you notes to show your gratitude in style.

Elephant Fun Thank You Card
  1. A handwritten poem. Whether you compose the poem yourself or simply copy a beloved verse out of an anthology, this gift is touching, heartfelt and fits easily inside your thank you notes.
  2. Gift certificates. Send gift cards tucked inside your thank you cards and treat someone special to a free movie, a dinner out at their favorite restaurant or a little shopping spree.
  3. Personal Photos. Stick some of your favorite photographs of you and the person you are thanking into your thank you note for a special personal touch. This works well when you include photos from an event that you are thanking guests for their attendance at.
  4. Tickets. Tuck a pair of tickets to a sporting event, concert or theatrical performance inside your thank you card to treat a deserving friend to an exciting night out on the town.
  5. Party Favors. Small children's party favors like comics, stickers and temporary tattoos often slip easily into thank you note envelopes.
  6. Charms. For a delightful favor for adults, include a small charm or trinket in your thank you cards. Whenever they see it, your charm will always remind them of your generosity.
  7. Bookmarks. Whether store-bought or homemade using old cards, photos or crafting supplies, bookmarks make excellent gifts for sophisticated or literary friends.
  8. Scrapbooking supplies. Have any good friends who love to scrapbook? Send them inspiration in the form of stick-on letters, ribbons, old ticket stubs you used together–anything to get their creative juices flowing!
  9. Personalized stationery. What better gift to tuck inside your own thank you notes than personalized stationery for your friends and family?
  10. Tangible Memories. For longtime friends, old photographs, programs from shows you attended or even an old childhood letter make excellent additions to your thank you cards.
