How to Say Thank You

The attitude of gratitude, counting your blessings or giving thanks are well known keys to happiness.  As children we are taught that "Please & Thank You" are magic words and it seems our Mothers, Grandmothers and Giddy Aunts may have been right!  Saying "thank you" to someone who has made a difference to your world makes their world a little better too!

While we try to say thank you all year round, at this time of year we're on the look out for extra special thank you gifts for teachers, coaches, team leaders and staff.engraved whistle thank you gift

A gift of thanks or a card is made even more meaningful with the simple word "thanks" but sometimes we want to say more. It isn't always easy to find the right words so your Giddy Aunts have a collection of favourite sayings that may help with the inspiration!  Just about everything in the Giddy range can be hand-engraved with a word or message - please contact us if you would like to ensure your words will fit.
