3 Sweet Ways to Show Your Appreciation

Sweet Relief



For those who have gone above and beyond, like that bestie that never lets you down, why not give them a gift certificate for a spa treatment? A relaxing massage, facial or a mani-pedi would make anyone feel pampered and appreciated. However, you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to show you care.

Sweet Pictures

Or one where they brought you flowers that they picked themselves? Buy an inexpensive frame, decorate it with paint pens, seashells or dried flowers and insert the picture of a sweet and considerate thank you gift.
