Sometimes it is easier to pass up the chance to say thank you than to actually say those two tiny words. Let’s show some gratitude this season with some fun ideas that will make anyone’s day.

Make a list of your favorite things about that person. Someone once did this for me and it is one of the most treasured things I own (and it is free).
Write a “Thank You” email. I know handwritten notes are basically dead so let’s jump to the thing we are on all day every day. Here I’ll get you started… Subject line: Thank you
