I have always think Thanksgiving Day as the most significant day among all the festivals. In the course of our lifetime, there must be more than one person to whom you bear profound gratitude. This day gives us a justified reason to extend our thanks to these persons.
A thanksgiving gift is the manifestation of our gratitude. But what kind things should we send as thanksgiving gift? This is question many people find hard to decide. More often than not, people tend to think that only gifts that are expensive can manifest the sincerity and profoundness of their gratitude. However, being financially limited, most people can’t afford such expensive gifts such a iPod newly on sale or an elegant Parker pen. As a result, they simply choose don’t to send gifts at all on this special day.
Yet to my opinion, such thought is totally wrong. It isn’t what Thanksgiving Day means for. A thanksgiving day is originally meant to remind people bearing a heart of gratitude for those people they owe to. In this sense, the value of your gift means little as long as you bear a heart of gratitude. Anything that carries your sincere gratitude can be a good thanksgiving gift.
Actually, those gifts that ordinary yet practical is all the more touching and convincing than ones high in price yet useless. For example, a son can apply a gym membership card for his father as thanksgiving gift. It won’t cost much, but the father will know his son’s goodwill: father, I hope you will be sound and healthy forever. Or a comfortable spa for your dear mother. Have you ever felt guilty when seeing your dear mother bustling with chores and trifles? If so, taker her to a spa club and let her feel the real joy of life. I think every mother will feel reassured for her son’s consideration. And then how is the thanksgiving gift for your wife? If you aren’t a lousy husband, you will definitely know the thing your wife has been craving for. And that will be a perfect thanksgiving gift. For example, a bottle of aromatic perfume or a piece of elegant silk scarves. As a matter of fact, my thanksgiving gift for my wife is just a silk scarf of exotic air.
In all, you don’t have to doubt whether they will like your thanksgiving gift or not, it is just superfluous. Mind you, what they care is your heart rather than the gift your send.
