  7. Give the Gift of Cooking — They say that experiences are often more meaningful than things. If you believe this to be true, give the gift of a cooking class as a unique way to say “thank you” to someone.

Oftentimes the best way to say, “thank you” is to give them something heartfelt and unique. Consider upcycling or repurposing everyday items, like creating a unique gift made from wine corks.

  10. Write Up Your Recipes — Although it may seem like a big task, putting together a small booklet or binder of your favorite recipes is a sincere way to express your appreciation for someone. After all, as the saying goes, the way to the heart is through the stomach.
