The Ultimate Guide to Showing Gratitude

March 5, 2019 No Comments

Most of us are lucky enough to have supportive people in our lives. Very often, these are individuals who have helped us through rough times.

Or it could be family members who continually provide support. Perhaps it’s just a friend who always manages to make us laugh or smile.

Whoever they are, they’re someone special. And so, you may want to thank them for being a huge part of your life.

To help you with this, we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to showing gratitude.

Put It into Words

Do you hold on to meaningful cards and letters? If so, we don’t blame you. Sure, texts can be fun to receive – but a written note typically lasts longer.

For this reason, why not write down how you feel about your chosen gift recipient. To find the right words, consider your relationship with them. If they’re your best pal, you could create an annotated timeline of your friendship, for example.

Or if you want to celebrate your mum, how about a poem? Alternatively, you can boost her mood by listing her many qualities in a card. For a variety of choice, look to greetings product specialists. Brands like Card Factory deliver a particularly vast selection.

Express your feelings in words, and you could produce a powerful effect.

Make it Personal

What’s the best present you’ve ever received? Most likely, it’ll have been specific to you, your tastes and preferences.

Personal gifts live up to their name: they mean something to whomever receives them. Therefore, you could show your gratitude to your chosen someone with a treat that’s tailored to them.

Again, we recommend that you think about your bond with them. Is there an item or memento that connects the two of you? A souvenir from a memorable holiday, maybe? Likewise, you could make a collage out of tickets from gigs, plays or any other events that you’ve attended together. However, you personalise your gift is entirely up to you.

This isn’t just a productive activity; it can be a fun one, too.

Give the Gift of Time

Our busy lives can keep us away from our loved ones. More often than not, who we see is more important than what we do outside of our daily duties.

So, if you’re low on money – or you just want to save it – you could give the gift of time. There are various ways to present this kind of present.

For example, you can offer a certain number of hours or days dedicated solely to them in their birthday card. Or you might prefer to ask them which date and time suits them for a catch up.

With the latter, you can hand over the reins to them. They’re the one receiving the present, after all. This may be the perfect way to highlight how much they mean to you.

If you want to convey how you feel to those closest to you, you aren’t alone. Several of us do. Luckily, once you know how, this can be easy to achieve. With these tips, you’ll be able to illustrate your gratitude completely.

  • Finally got round to trying these @cosrx pimple patches. ⠀ ⠀ I don't get too many spots, maybe the odd hormonal one every now and then. However, I do have some whiteheads that are under the skin - you can't see them till you pull the skin tighter but I know they are there as I can feel them under the skin.⠀ ⠀ I had tried several times to extract them but I didn't want to damage my skin and they were proving very stubborn.⠀ ⠀ So, I used a sterilised needle, to pierce a small hole in them, making sure to go just deep enough to hit the whitehead. ⠀ ⠀ Whacked on one of these pimple patches & voila! Over the next 24-48hrs they pulled out all the contents and the whiteheads were gone. ⠀ ⠀ It's much less trauma to the skin to use these patches rather than squeezing and picking and running the risk of scarring or PIH.⠀ ⠀ If you've not tried these, then I really recommend giving them a try. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. ⠀ ⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ,⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #theinstagramlab #howyouglow #abcommunity #kbeauty #koreanskincare #rasianbeauty #koreanbeauty #abblogger #kskincare #abskincare #asianskincare #kbeautyblogger #asianbeauty #skincareaddict #instaskincare #skincarejunkie #koreancosmetics #skincareproducts #skincarecommunity #abbeatthealgorithm #thatsdarling #cosrx #petitejoys #theeverygirl #nothingisordinary #pimplepatches #화장품그램 #ABMhappylife #화장품추천 #스킨케어⠀

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀ ⠀ I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀ ⠀ This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀ ⠀ These are the seven products you get:⠀ ⠀ 💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ 💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀ 💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀ ⠀ I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀ ⠀ Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ #instaskincare #skincarecommunity #skincareroutine #skincarebloggers #goodmolecules #beautylish ⠀ #skincarejunkies #skincareblogger #budgetbeauty #budget skincare #affordableskincare #theinstagramlab #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight⠀#skincareobsessed ⠀ #skincareaddict #glowyskin #clearskin #dryskin #discoverunder20k #howyouglow #skincarelover #iloveskincare #365inskincare #palmbffs #facialserum #facialoil
  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀ ⠀ Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀ ⠀ Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀ ⠀ Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀ ⠀ Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀ ⠀ What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #coffeescrub #veganfacescrub #scrub #petitejoys #theeverygirl #theinstagramlab #instaskincare ⠀ #organicskincare #cleanbeauty #upcircle #upcirclebeauty #repurposed #repurpose #upcycle #upcycled #circularskincare #circulareconomy #coffeeskincare #caffeinatedskincare #sustainablecosmetics #coffeewaste #coffeerecycling #cleanskincare #veganskincare #greenskincare #skincarecommunity #plantbasedbeauty #plantbasedskincare #skincareroutines #skincarebloggers
  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀ ⠀ This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀ ⠀ I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀ ⠀ After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀ ⠀ My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀ ⠀ I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀ ⠀ This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀ ⠀ Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #honeypotion #farmacybeauty #skincare #skincareroutine #skincarecommunity #skincarejunkie #skincareproducts #skincareobsessed #skincarenatural #skincareluxury #facemask #facemasks #farmacy #propolis #royaljelly #honey
