These days, there are always reasons to thank loved ones and strangers alike. Perhaps a friend stood by your side in a time of need or a family member flew across the country to be with you for a special occasion. Whatever the case, there are times when a simple card just does not seem enough to express gratitude.

Gifts That Say Thank You

One easy way to create a thank you gift is to put together a basket of specialty foods. The basket can be varied or tailored to fit the tastes of the recipient. Many companies offer pre-made baskets, but often it can be more fun--and more rewarding--to design a gift from your own imagination.

Popular choices are special jams and jellies. These can range from sweet to savory and are almost always a delight. Mustards, too, come in a range of types and flavors and last for quite awhile. Many places even have special imported vinegars and infused olive oils which are great a great choice for anyone who loves to cook.

If the basket can be delivered, by hand, there are some other options to consider. For those who enjoy it, smoked fish is a real treat. Many people enjoy the flavor of smoked salmon on bagels, or smoked trout as an appetizer. In a completely different food category, but no less loved, are truffles. Truffles are a delicious wild mushroom, prized by many, and are a wonderful addition to egg, pasta and potato dishes. Any combination of specialty foods is sure to delight and is a great way to show your thanks.
