When someone does something for us, we might feel a certain sense of responsibility to express our gratitude thoughtfully. It could be that they just did something small, like help us with a project, showed up for an important event in our life, simply helped us through a difficult. No matter how big or small their act was, it is good to thank them.
But without going over the top or making them feel uncomfortable with something too extravagant or inappropriate, how can you adequately show your gratitude? Of course, most of the time, people find that a simple “Thank you.” is enough. But you can do so much more without going overboard.
