Thank you gifts - what's appropriate?

Recommended Posts


A long time friend of mine is a graphic designer. She is the one who created my avatar, she also did our invitations, tickets for our stag and doe, labels for our favors and thank you cards. We paid for the printing but sheâ€s put a lot of effort into the design portion.

I want to get her a token of our appreciation but I donâ€t know whatâ€s appropriate?


I asked another friend of ours who is also a graphic designer but she told me not to go overboard and to get her something very small. Iâ€m really torn… she gets paid hourly for all her work and Iâ€m sure she spent a fair amount of time on my projects. I offered her money but she wonâ€t take it.


Any advise on what I should do?

you cant go wrong with a restaurant gift card, or a gift card or certificate for her favorite boutique or shop. or even a massage or spa day! if you give a gift card its not cash so she cant turn it down, and by picking a place or activity you know she would enjoy it shows that you appreciate her and know her well :)

She would probably enjoy time with you. A girl's day out at the spa or shopping, you pick up the tab for lunch and the massage. Thoughtful is better as her gift to you was very thoughtful (and priceless).

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
