Show your appreciation: ways to say “thank you”


The English language is a powerful thing and there are two little words that generally mean more to someone than anything else – thank you. It’s something most of us say at least once every day, and best of all – it’s free.
Whether you’re simply being polite (if someone hands you a meal for dinner at a restaurant), or you are truly telling someone you love that you appreciate something amazing they have done for you – there’s nothing quite like hearing “thank you”.
So why is saying thank you so important? It is simple really. It shows someone they are appreciated and being appreciated is something that motivates people – whether in the office or in the home. In the home, you might want to show your wife you appreciate everything she has done to prepare a dinner for the family; show your child you are proud that they have worked hard to achieve good grades at school; or show your husband you love the renovation he’s just finished in the bathroom. In the office, telling one of your staff members they have done a good job will not only keep them motivated to continue to do good work, but it will also help to retain them as employees.
Feeling appreciated goes a long way!
Saying thank you is pretty easy. The best way to go about it is to make eye contact with the person you are thanking (that helps them to believe you are being sincere); give them a huge smile; be clear when you speak and keep your tone friendly; and make sure you tell them exactly what you are thanking them for.
If you don’t feel like that’s enough, one of our favourite ways to say thank you to those who matter is to give them a special gift that they can keep as a momento of the occasion.

Here are some ideas:
Custom engraved Acrylic Awards: Acrylic awards are a unique and modern way to show someone you appreciate them. Get them laser engraved with any type of message (of course a simple “thank you” would suffice but no doubt you can find something better) and you’ve given someone a gift that will last forever. These are fantastic in the workplace, but are also a great Father’s Day or Mother’s Day present to show your parents how much you appreciate everything they have done for you over the years. Custom designs are available, or you can choose one of the styles available online already.
Award Plaques: It might sound strange to give someone a plaque to say “thank you”, but you have to admit – it is original. And there is no doubt the recipient is going to be impressed. These plaques are available in crystal and glass which can be engraved or colour printed - presented in a protective gift box as an added bonus; timber – made with engraved metalic or marbelised face and with optional printing and either wall mounted or desk mounted; and black marble with can have a special custom design with timber base.
Glass Awards: These are most popular with sporting events but also make a great thank you for your staff, for encouragement, or to show appreciation with a little bit of fun. You can get these engraved with your logo, text or an image. A great idea for a loved one is to get a photo engraved in them. You might choose from popular options like champagne flutes or wine glasses, and you might add an engraved timber box to the mix. They become a permanent keepsake.
Saying thank you not only helps the person you are thanking to feel good, but it is guaranteed to give you the warm and fuzzies as well. It’s always nice to know you are making someone feel better about themselves. And more than that, showing someone gratitude will result in positive payback for you – in the home and the office.
