It’s inevitable. At some point you are going to need a thank you gift. You might try your hardest not to rely on others for favors. One day when you may be least expecting it, someone will do something totally awesome for you. Maybe you get stranded with a flat or need a last minute babysitter for your dog.
Regardless of the circumstance, when you get bailed out of a sticky situation a thank you gift is a MUST. Gift cards are ideal, because the recipient can really take the time to treat herself to something extra special.
Here’s some thank you gift card ideas for every type of person in your life.
Saved by the woman who also happens to be a killer hostess? You know the type. She’s always throwing dinner parties and taking strays in (the human kind) on the holidays. She probably loves to show off her home and her new favorite recipe. If the woman who just helped you out of jam fits this description, she’d go wild for a gift card to one of these merchants.

It’s safe to say, the metro man probably has a closet better stocked and organized than your own. He’s refined, well groomed and pays attention to all the details down to the last accessory. Maybe he helped you prepare for an important business presentation or a job interview.

All moms are amazing, but the super mom seems like a super hero. Did she pick your son up at soccer practice for you when you had to work late?

Even super heroes need a way to recharge their batteries, so does the super mom.

The guy’s guy definitely always looks good, but it doesn’t mean he’s always (if ever) wearing a suit and tie. The guy’s guy probably feels more at home in leather boots and jeans. He still probably likes button up shirts, just in more casual styles. If the guy’s guy helped you in a moment of need, thank him with a gift card to one of these shops.
