My Favourite Appreciation Gifts

Anika May // fashion and lifestyle blogger // love to give gifts to say thank you. And there’s just so much happiness in giving or making someone else smile because of a little present. It shows appreciation and is like a giant hug. I always light up whenever I receive a gift that’s personalised, as it shows that person genuinely knows me and thought of me when decided to send me a little prezzie.

I’m always giving gifts to close friends just to say thank you and I love you, so here are some of my favourites:

Printsome | quick t-shirt printing

Printsome are a UK-based t-shirt printing agency which is ideal for personalised products. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with hoodies, so when I discovered this site can create printed hoodies as well as shirts and vests, I was over the moon! The service is fast too, so this is a great store for last-minute gifts. | A Little Hug… In The Post

I discovered this adorable product when searching for gifts to cheer up one of my closest friends. She lives at the other end of the country, so I couldn’t drop everything and be by her side, but I discovered this gem and knew it would be perfect! I love that this gift is quirky, inexpensive and just so pretty to look at!

Personalised Gifts Shop | A Massive Hug Personalised Retro Sweets Hamper

I have a cousin who is obsessed with retro sweets and candy, so after a quick Google search I came across the Personalised Gifts Shop (which I’ve never heard of, but is actually really cool) and found the idea appreciation gift. Plus, the hamper is so perfect for picnics after all the goodies have been devoured!

Anika May // fashion and lifestyle blogger // Florist | Foundation Sunflowers

I absolutely adore sunflowers. The colour yellow just screams happiness, gratitude and humbleness. I’m always using sunflowers to represent positivity online and I think they make an awesome thank you gift. The flower is cheery and bright! I chose Waitrose as they have a brilliant foundation that’s partnered with Fairtrade to improve the lives of farm works who harvest these beautiful plants. | Personalised Classic Pink Scented Jar Candle

My favourite colour is pink, so 90% of the time, the gifts I send have an element of pink involved. I came across this pretty candle after someone sent it to me as a thank you gift. It’s safe to say the scent is amazing and fills a room in minutes. I love that you can have a personal message on the front, wonderful for showing appreciation.

Etsy | Thank You Mug

What’s a gift post without something from Etsy?! I know the minute I get engaged I’ll be going through this site day and night. I found this thank you mug, and it immediately caught my eye because the handle is a cute little heart! I love the simple design, I’m actually tempted to buy one and just send it to myself.
