The best Christmas presents as a kid were the ones you actually wanted and asked for right? But sometimes you receive a gift you did not ask for (or something you did not expect) and it ends up being the best Christmas present of the year. Why? Because it those gifts say (without actually saying)the two simple words that mean so much ‘thank you’. Though the best ‘thank you’ Christmas present is different for every person you can hedge your bets by trying some of these tips and tricks for giving 'thank you' gifts this Christmas:

A Trip

What is more fun or enjoyable than spending family time together on an exciting trip/adventure? And what better way to say ‘Thank You’ to your kids or special someone? It does not have to be a trip to Disney every year, but try to save up some money and tell your kids about an upcoming trip you will be taking. You could take a trip to the nearby Zoo or Aquarium. You could go to a nearby lake, pond, beach. Whatever you do, try to make sure it is something a little more out of the ordinary and special than what you do on the weekends. 

Sturdy

If you are going to buy a ‘Thank You’ toy for a gift make sure it is sturdy. Read reviews, ask around, and do your best to see how long it is going to last. The gifts that work and last the longest are usually among the best Christmas presents. Kids can tell when a toy only cost a dollar, why? Because they are the small cheap toys that your kids get in a gift bag every time they go to a birthday party. If you can’t afford a lot of gifts, spend more on one gift that truly says ‘Thank You,’ a gift that is going to last and be fun for a long time.

Fulfilling a Wish

Again, as a recipient the best ‘Thank You’ Christmas present is the one you actually want. As the giver, try to fulfill a Christmas wish list - or at least one or two things on that list and. The gifts that are asked for are usually the best gifts. If you do not know what your child or family member wants, do not go around guessing and buying the first thing you see. Ask what they want, ask them to make a list and do your shopping based on those answers and lists.
