How to Say You Matter: A Gift Giving Guide

You Matter Gift Giving

Give a Gift to Someone Who Matters in Your Life

Giving gifts can be a daunting task. What do you get the person who seemingly has everything they could want or needs? It can be especially challenging when trying to find gifts for people who seem to have it all together. However, there are a few unique gift ideas that will let the recipient know that they matter, no matter what.

Why is it important to tell someone — You Matter?

Everyone wants to feel like they matter. When someone takes the time to show us that we do, it’s one of the best feelings in the world. It can be tough to know how to show someone they matter, but with a little effort and thought, it can be done.

One way to demonstrate this is to pay attention to them. Really listen when they’re talking, and make an effort to remember the things they say. Another way is to do something special for them. Something that shows you took the time and put thought into it.

Since it can be difficult to get started, here share some ways to help you. It’s important to remember that it’s the thought that counts, and even the simplest gesture can make someone feel special.

What are some things you can do to make someone feel special?

1. Express your appreciation

  • Start with being honest. If you typically struggle to express your true thoughts and feelings, let them know.
  • Keep it simple. You don’t have to gush over them and say every thought that comes to mind. It can be as simple as saying, “You are important to me. Thank you for being you.”

If you aren’t able to form the words during a conversation, that’s alright. Skip skip to the next idea…

2. Write a handwritten note

It might seem like a small thing, but there are so many reasons to write a card. Maybe you want to tell someone you care about them, or that they did a great job. Maybe you just want to make someone’s day a little bit brighter. Maybe there’s something you want to say, but don’t want to say over the phone, through text, or in person (or struggle to form the words when you are together — no judgment here, we’ve been there!).

No matter what the reason, there’s nothing quite like getting a handwritten card. It’s personal, it’s (often) unexpected, and it always makes you feel special. It also serves as a reminder that someone took the time to think of you.

So why not make someone feel special today by writing them a card?
