    Thank you gift ideas

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I am collecting donations for my May Tour de Cure ride. A few friends have contributed over $20 and I would like to give them a little thank you gift (around $5). Any ideas?

    If I were you I would keep it very small and inexpensive. People donate because they really want to contribute, not get something of value back :-)

    I would be surprised and happy to receive maybe an attractive card saying something about the ride, or just a single piece of quality chocolate with a personalized wrapper.

    I agree. I think a personal note of thanks would be more than enough thanks. I have given to many of my friends' causes over the years and have never wanted anything in return. I did get a lovely note from one and another sent a thank you in the form of a photo (of her at the event) card. That's a nice touch.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    I was going to say a photo collage card from the event would be nice.

    We've traditionally done cookies as thank you's for donations from local people. Worked where we were getting lots of contributions from people at work/other places that were easy to deliver to. One year, I did a thank you breakfast for folks who donated in my office. Just depends on the context as to what's appropriate!

    I was also going to say a Thank You note with a nice insert (could be anything, piece of chocolate, pretty paper). Maybe spend 5-10 dollars total, not per person.

    Not much point in their having donated if you expend any real $$. That might make them wonder why they bothered.
