I love traveling, and I love food. Quite often I choose to travel to a destination just to sample the local cuisine. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to travel and enjoy all the gorgeous meals I’ve had without the hospitality of some wonderful people I’ve met. And when people do those lovely things for you, I love to say thanks in my own way. Here are some of the best ways I’ve found to say thank you:
Sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a lovely way to say thank you when someone has put you up in their home. It takes time, effort and lots of extra cleaning and tidying to have a guest stay in your home. I really do appreciate all that extra work when I stay at a friend’s home or with my family. Arranging a flower delivery by Flowers For Everyone offers a token of thanks after I’ve left. It says I’m remembering having a lovely time.
When I am invited to a home-cooked dinner, I think it is polite to bring something for the table. Lots of people like to bring a bottle of wine. Not all my dinner parties include alcohol, though. I’m just as happy bringing the dessert! Sometimes it’s nice to bring a fruit basket. They always look so beautifully presented as well. It all depends on how healthy I’m trying to be!
Sometimes when I’m on my travels, I find I’m offered extra help here and there. Most people are really generous with their time and go out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable. It’s really sweet, so I try to remember that with a thank you card. It’s always nice to receive a thank you after you’ve helped someone. I’ve even sent them to companies whose staff have gone the extra mile to make me feel welcome. I love music and I will check out how much are keyboards are. After purchasing one, I will learn up and dedicate a song to my love one! That would make a great gift too!
Of course the best way to say thanks is to reciprocate. If I’ve had a lovely meal with a friend, then I want to invite them to my home to enjoy the same. I love spending time with people. And best of all, I love a good meal! I do my best to cater to all tastes. I try to provide the same good accommodation when I can too.
If you know the person well that you want to thank, then you might be able to select the perfect gift. Perhaps they’re into horse riding? A crystal ornament of a horse can be a lovely way to say thanks. My musically minded friends always love it if I find them a rare recording of a much-loved artist. Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money. After all, it’s the thought that counts.
