4 Meaningful Ways to Show Gratitude for Thanksgiving 2020
It’s been a trying year, one that has had us all thinking about how precious time is. For some, it’s even been hard to do something as simple as leave the house, go grocery shopping, or spend time with loved ones.
That’s why this is the perfect opportunity to tell the people you love, the people you work with, and the people you see everyday how much they mean to you. In these times, a little encouragement or a little note of thanks can be a deeply touching sentiment.
So whether your Thanksgiving is October 12th (for Canadians) or November 26th (for Americans), celebrate the season with one of the many ways that show your gratitude with Boodles of Baskets.
Keep Your Distance But Stay in Touch
Since travelling is still discouraged because of the effects of COVID-19, keeping your distance is still very important to protect the health and safety of others. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still show your loved ones that you’re thinking of them from a distance!
Be thankful that you can still communicate by phone, text, email, or video chat. And if you’re feeling extra grateful, you can also communicate by online gift basket!
Spend Time with Friends & Family
As for any local family and friends, we recommend that you get together to spend some quality time. Even with social distancing rules in place, you can enjoy brisk walks and long talks – as long as you’re six feet apart. Choose apple-picking for a unique outdoor activity, or hunt for pumpkins so you can create some scary Jack-o’-Lanterns later on.
If you have friends and family in your household bubble, you can also make silly crafts to get in the festive mood and spread some joy. Colouring isn’t just for kids anymore! Print out some Thanksgiving images or use an adult colouring book to relieve stress.
For those that can get together in person, you can contribute to the cooking by helping out with the turkey or making your own dishes for a buffet dinner. Boodles of Baskets has many thanksgiving gift baskets that you can open for dessert at your house, or send to friends and family far away that couldn’t make it this year.
Remember People Who Are Forgotten
It seems as if the world has been working harder this year, so why not show your appreciation by telling those you encounter how much you are grateful for their efforts? It can be a store worker, your neighbourhood postal worker, a delivery person, a taxi driver, a teacher, or a medical worker.
While you know we’re going to suggest giving one of our handcrafted gift baskets that feature premium products, sometimes a card can be just as powerful, especially in this digital age. A written message or a simple “thank you” can go a long way, motivating people to keep doing what they’re doing.
Send a Thanksgiving & Autumn Gift Basket
Sending or giving a gift basket will help people feel appreciated, which is what we need more than ever in 2020. Little things, like telling someone how much their work means to you or spending quality time can also have a profound effect on people, touching their hearts.
