Sure, we can say "thank you". But, when you give a person a present, isn't it like being a kid again? All excited and proud of the person's reaction! Here are a few ways to thank a person without "saying" it:

Goodies

Housewives are good at doing this! Make a batch of cookies for the mail person, the neighbors, the pastor, guests, etc.




Yard Sale Items

Go to yard sales and find like-new items. Wrap the items up in pretty packaging.


Items Found Around Your House

A good example of this is my neighbor, which is a good example of Paying It Forward. She gets free donated groceries from an organization. She goes through the groceries for what she likes then what she does not like, she gives to me. If you have food in your pantry that you don't like, why let it spoil?




Donation Boxes

For example, my church has a box for donated groceries and a box for donated clothes.


Gift Baskets/Gift Jars

Go to the local dollar store and buy little "giffies" to place in a box, basket or jar. Wrap it up and you are set!


Gift Certificates

These can be bought or homemade! For example, why not make a homemade gift certificate for a couple for free babysitting so that they can get a break and go out on a date?


Finally, a neat way to present these gifts is to place them where the person won't notice you.

Make sure these gifts are like gifts that you would want presented to you.
