Unexpected surprises can make someone’s day

Unexpected gifts can always brighten someone’s day and this time of year is the perfect opportunity to show your appreciation for their kindness. Whether it’s the mailman who drops off your packages daily or the friendly cashier at your local bank, a gift is a small gesture in seeing that you receive ongoing customer service all year long and shows that you are thankful they are available to provide service.

It doesn’t have to be something pricy or elaborate, just a gift that shows you want to thank them for always stepping up to assist you. As the festivities of the season come to a close, why not take the time to make a list of people that have helped you during the year, so you can give them a little surprise as we all return to work.

Ideas that they will enjoy can be as simple as:

  • A coffee tumbler with some holiday chocolates or hot cocoa mixes
  • A holiday plant for their desk
  • A gift card to a local sandwich shop
  • A candy jar filled with some special treats
  • A set of gourmet spices

Anything that says you thought of them during this season will definitely make their day. So whether you are in a holiday mood or not, remember it’s the little things that make a difference. This is the season that we should all take a few moments to show our appreciation to others and be thankful for all the people that cross our lives and help us throughout the year. Plan to make someone’s day magical by giving them a gift as a token of appreciation.
