How To Say Thank You: 17 Inspiring Ideas
How To Say Thank You
From the earliest days, one of the first things we are taught is how to say thank you, and with good reason.
“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls” Aesop.
Being grateful is one of the hallmarks of a life well lived. It is not happy people who are thankful, but thankful people who are happy. But sometimes just saying thank you isn’t enough.
We have collected a list of other ways for how to say thank you.

Personalised Thank You Gifts – A Bit More Pricey
Aerial Thank You Message – ??? £Lots
Have you got some spare change? Do you want to thank a lot of people all in one go? Like Swindon? If you want to thank Swindon for something then this is how to do it: sky writing.
When a text and an email won't cut it, the post is an awesome way to send a message. But let’s face it, cards are boring. They taste bad, they take too long, and they don’t look great on a cake. That’s why we built Morse Toad’s chocolate messaging service. Just visit the site, write something tasty in chocolate, then import a photo from your phone or instagram to be printed on the card insert. Unlike the chocolate (which will disappear in a flash), our wallet-sized card inserts can be kept, so that the photo and message can be kept forever. Next time you want to send a special message, make sure it's delivered in personalised chocolate .
