Ways to Give Thanks

A thank you note

Thanksgiving is not just a time to get together with your family and friends to have a meal! It’s a time to celebrate and give thanks for the good things in your life with your family and friends. There are plenty of ways to express your gratitude, which can make it difficult to choose. In this week’s The Eclipse at 1450 Blog, we’ve got a few ways you could choose from to show your thanks!

Write a Letter

Take some time to write a letter to someone you wish to thank! A personal, heartfelt letter is a great way to express your gratitude to anyone who’s made an impact in your life. Since it’s long form, you can use the opportunity to write down anecdotes and personal stories to illustrate just why you’re so grateful to the recipient. Give these letters in person when possible, but if you can’t, just make sure they receive it! 

Thank You Notes

If you aren’t a person of many words, you can skip writing the letter and write thank you notes. These notes are short and sweet, so you have to be succinct. Whether you write them on a sticky note, note cards, or on a mirror, make sure they’re heartfelt! A fun way to use these thank you notes are by placing them in spots along the path of the person you wish to thank, so they can find it as they’re going about their day. 


Gifts can be a delicate way to express your gratitude. There are many people who find it difficult to accept gifts, but the right person would love it. If you are going to purchase a gift for someone, make sure you do your research! It’s important to find a gift that they’ll like, rather than getting whatever you want.
