Want to acknowledge and appreciate a loved one but just can’t figure out what to do? We’ve got a few ideas for you! Through these simple yet effective gestures, you can express your love and gratitude to your family members, colleagues, and friends.
Make a Toast
You don’t have to wait for your friend to get married or get a cool new job in order to make a toast! Even the simplest of occasions can serve as the perfect opportunity to say a few words of appreciation out loud.
Whether you’re out fine dining with your squad, meeting for drinks together after work. Or just having a cozy pizza party at your home. You can honor the special individuals in your life at all times. The next time the whole gang gets together, stand up, raise your glass (or can of soda). And make a sincere toast for people who mean the most to you.
Offer Them Your Assistance
Your relationships need the right balance between give and take. You can’t expect someone to go out of their way and rush to your side if you don’t treat them the same way. One way to practice the art of giving in your relationships is by offering to help them out with something without making it look like you’re doing them a huge favor.
For instance, you can buy them coffee the next time you’re out together, or offer to babysit their kids every once in a while. If there’s an errand they’ve been meaning to get done with but haven’t gotten the chance yet, why not offer your assistance there? Not only will you be helping them out, but you’ll also be showing that you care deeply about them.
Treat Them to Dinner
Good food is definitely a great way to bond with someone. A steaming bowl of noodles and prawn tempura, chicken roast with mashed potatoes, or a gourmet meal, everything sounds better with scrumptious food.
Why not treat your loved one to dinner to show your appreciation for them? It doesn’t have to be at a fancy restaurant. You can even prepare a homemade meal for the two of you to enjoy together.
Bonus tip: treat them to their favorite food.
Get Them a Personalized Gift
The best about gifts is that they don’t have to be expensive. The whole idea is to surprise someone with a token of appreciation, and your gift can take any form.
Instead of buying an expensive watch they’ll never wear or a yet another vase for their home, get a gift that’s thoughtful. It can be something that reminds you of a particular memory or makes you think of them. It can even be homemade! The more you personalize your gift, the more it shows that you’ve put serious thought into it, and your friend will be touched by your gesture.
