Thank-you gifts are a wonderful way to express the depth of our gratitude, especially when words alone are not enough.
But how do you choose something that expresses how thankful you are?
We’ve compiled a few suggestions of luxurious thank you gifts for those that deserve something truly special. Whatever your choice, the recipient will be touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity.
A Deluxe Box Of Chocolates
No matter where you go in the world, a box of chocolates can be a wonderful way to say, “Thank you.” If you’re expressing gratitude for a small act of kindness, you can look at something simple, but if the favour you received was deeply meaningful, you’ll want to give them something special.
Hotel Chocolat’s The Everything Chocolate Gift Hamper would be perfect. The luxury box of goodies contains a little bit of everything in case you’re not sure of their taste in chocolate. They’re sure to love the assortment of salted caramel puddles, patisserie chocolates, Billionaire’s Shortbread, and exotic dark fruit and nut slab from one of the UK’s best chocolatiers.
Champagne And Macarons
Treat them to a flavourful experience by giving them the thank-you gift of champagne and macarons for two at iconic brand Ladurée’s salon de thé in Covent Garden. They’ll enjoy every sip, every morsel, in the chic new tearoom; an experience that will leave no doubt about the sincerity of your gratitude.
Say “Thanks” With Flowers
You can’t go wrong by saying, “Thank you” with flowers. A bunch of flowers still wrapped in cellophane is nice, but you could do so much better – by having one of JamJar Flowers’ unique arrangements delivered to the recipient. South London-based JamJar was founded by Melissa Richards in 2009, and the brand is famous for its floral art pieces created with seasonal flowers and undeniably gorgeous jam jars and other interesting containers. It’s a thank you gift that will make an impression.
Cocktail Flight And Snacks
If you’re considering expressing your gratitude by treating him or her to cocktails, we’re happy to recommend a visit to Adam Handling’s incredibly hip Eve Bar in Covent Garden. The venue’s talented bartenders will serve a flight of expertly crafted cocktails to be enjoyed with a charcuterie or cheese platter. It’ll be an experience to remember.
A Kintsugi Vase
A piece of beautiful art or exquisite homeware can make a lovely thank you gift. We love this kintsugi vase, which is made using vintage Japanese pottery and gold powder. It’s a fine example of kintsugi, which is the repairing of broken objects using a paste containing gold. The practice transforms the item, whether broken intentionally or accidentally, into a new work of art. Your gift will take their breath away.
An Energising Massage
If they’re tired and stressed, and they could do with some pampering, give them the opportunity to enjoy an energising booster treatment package at Gazelli House as a thank you gift. They’ll enjoy a luxurious massage and facial at the holistic spa founded by Jamila Askarova. We’ve no doubt they’ll love your gift.
A Fragrant Gift Set
Would you like to express your thanks with a gift of fragrant lotions and potions? They’ll be thrilled with Jo Malone’s Luminous & Luxurious trio. The beautifully boxed set includes Wild Bluebell cologne, a Peony and Blush Suede scented candle and Wood Sage and Sea Salt body crème. Saying thank you never smelled this good.
A Private Museum Tour And Lunch
If they’re a lover of art, history, and good food, give him or her a thank you gift that lets them explore the Foundling Museum on a private tour. The first children’s charity in the UK, the Foundling Hospital was a home for abandoned children.
In addition to seeing objects from the hospital archives, the tour also includes 18th-century artworks and the largest collection of Handel memorabilia. The experience will be followed by a sumptuous lunch at the celebrated Anglo-Indian restaurant, Benares.
A Bottle Of Champagne
A bottle of champagne may be the best thank you gift for the occasion. If this sounds good to you, choose something with a bit of pizzazz. Consider a set such as Veuve Clicquot’s Summer Rich Basket. The beautiful straw basket contains two different bottles of the iconic brand’s bubbly as well as six glasses. It’s a delightful way to show your gratitude.
Their Own Blend Of Coffee
Is he or she a coffee-lover?
If so, give them the chance to create their own coffee blend as a thank you gift. They can join the knowledgeable staff at Ozone Coffee, where they can explore different coffees from places such as El Salvador and Guatemala, before brewing up a unique blend to take home. They’ll talk about your fabulous gift for years to come.
A Hamper Of Luxe Goodies
A gift basket is a fine thank-you gift if you don’t know the recipient that well enough to cater to specific interests. A hamper of luxe goodies from Fortnum & Mason is even better.
We love the Globetrotter hamper, which includes tea blends, coffee, and a selection of sweet treats as well as savoury delights. Every mouthful will be a delectable reminder of your thankfulness.
Jack The Ripper Tour
Looking for a thank you gift with a difference for a fan of murder mysteries? Give them the opportunity to join expert Ripperologist Paul Mansfield for a thrilling Jack the Ripper tour that will take them to the various sites involved in the infamous crime spree that took place in White Chapel almost 200 years ago. Your gift is sure to take them by surprise.
A Box Of Artist’s Pencils
Do you need a thank you gift for someone who draws, sketches, and creates colourful art? Choose a gift that is inspired by their creativity. We think the Derwent limited edition box of 120 artist’s pencils is fabulous. The recipient will be touched by your thoughtfulness.
London Eye Private Capsule And Michelin Dining
Express your thanks by treating them to an evening they won’t forget. Let them enjoy champagne and truffles in a private capsule on the London Eye, before heading off for dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant. They can enjoy a bliss-inducing take on French fine dining at the Greenhouse.
Each of these is a splendid way to let someone know that you appreciate what they’ve done for you. Choose one (or more!) and give them a thank you gift they won’t forget.
