Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in both the United States and Canada, which is celebrated officially to give thanks for being blessed with a good harvest in that year. While there are both religious and cultural connotations given to this particular holiday, it is celebrated these days as a secular holiday. This is a day, which is commemorated towards giving thanks to all the blessings, in terms of happiness, love, family, security and all the other good things that have come your way.
While celebrating Thanksgiving the traditional way is still popular, it goes without saying that there is no reason why you should not add something new to these traditions. Sending unique gift baskets to friends and family who do not live in your neighborhood is a great way of expressing your feelings. However, when you choose gift baskets for such special occasions, it is always imperative to understand what you are trying to say and how best you can say it. In other words, different gift baskets hold different meanings and choosing the best one to serve your purpose will make the gift and the day extra special.
Here are some ideas to make your recipient’s Thanksgiving Day special:
- Fresh Flowers: One of the best ways in which you can express your feelings is by gifting fresh flowers. While the age old bouquets are definitely worth the consideration, having baskets that are unique and customized to suit the recipient is definitely worth a choice if you want to do something different. Of course, it is always important to make sure that the person loves flowers and is not allergic to any particular one.
- Chocolate gift hampers: Whether it is love or simple joy or gratitude, there is nothing better than chocolates to express your feelings for your recipients. And when gourmet chocolates enter the equation, it becomes perhaps one of the best ways to convey your feelings. For example, you can gift a hamper filled with Lindt truffles, Harry London Cookie Joys, a fudge cup, chocolate loreos and marshmallows to express your thanks or even love to another person for simply being there. Of course, when you know the likes and dislikes of the other person, you can always get it customized to suit their needs, making it even more special.
- Relaxation or spa gifts: When you are gifting a parent or someone whom you know has been offering you rock-solid support and has been handling several things to make your life easier and joyous, relaxation should be the foremost theme on your mind. What makes it really special is that you could choose from a wide variety of items, including coffee, tea, shower gels, bath salts, body lotions, organic foods; just about anything that will put a smile on the person’s face and ensure that he/she feels relaxed and pampered. Tea hampers, coffee baskets, spa baskets etc are perfect gifts for saying thank you to someone really special.
- Gourmet gifts: If you want to take it a notch higher on the elegance front, you could always opt for gourmet foods like cheeses, wines, chocolates, Italian foods, crackers etc, which not only make the gift special but also add an elegant touch to it. When all these ingredients are placed in an elegant leather basket or something equally special, there is no denying the special nature or the high level of sophistication involved in such gifting.
While the type of gifts that you can give someone for Thanksgiving is endless, the choice will ultimately depend on what they like and what you want to express. Therefore, know the tastes and preferences of your intended recipients before you start searching for unique gift baskets to convey your thanks and appreciate their presence in your life on this Thanksgiving Day.
