  1. E-Card
    If you got a package from your relatives who live in another country, the best way to say thank you is to send them an e-card. Somecards.com helps you customize cute and creative greeting cards and emails it directly to them.
  2. Letter
    Show your appreciation through handmade greeting cards. Nothing beats handwritten and custom-made letters. So get your scissors and art papers, and let your creative powers work its magic!
  3. Video Message
    If you can't say thank you personally, show them how thankful you are and make a video message for your loved ones. You can show them the gifts you got and you can also send a video message to other relatives who live far from you as a Christmas greeting!
  4. Snap Them
    Loved your Christmas gift? Then take a photo with it! They say a picture is worth a thousand words so why not send them a thousand "thank you"s. Here's a tip: if you have a Polaroid camera, snap a photo of you with your gift and snail mail it to them with a little token of appreciation.
  5. Personal Thing
    If you can say thank you in person, do it. A simple thank you and a hug can mean so much more. But if you want to try something different, maybe you can sing them Christmas carols or bake them cookies to show how thankful you are for the gifts they got you this Christmas.
  6. Friendship Bracelets
    You don't have to necessarily say thank you for the material things you got for Christmas but you can also say thanks for the wonderful year you spent with your BFF. Give something personalized and fashionable such as a friendship bracelet. Add cute charms that represent your friendship and give it to her! We are sure she would love it!
  7. Mix Tape
    Make a mix tape for your friends that consist of Christmas carols or even just your favorite songs. And if you're creative enough, you can record a message for your friend or maybe even sing for them!
  8. Relaxation
    Your parents don't have the time to relax anymore. And after the busy year of non-stop working for you and your family, it's time for you to take care of them. The best way you can give thanks to your parents is through relaxation. A day in the spa and quiet time wouldn't hurt and maybe after pampering them, they can go out and have a sweet and romantic dinner together.
  9. Master Chef
    If you want to try out something new, cooking would be the best option! Spoil them with holiday treats and look for new and easy recipes online. If you're planning to bake them cookies, look for the cutest cookie jar or even just a regular jar and fill them in. To add your personal touch to it, you can also design the jar with regular acrylic paint. Nothing says Merry Christmas than a very happy and merry tummy!
  10. Covers
    You don't have to have that golden voice in order for them to appreciate your efforts. How about make them a cover of their favorite song or even just a song from their favorite band. Burn it in a CD, and design the CD case with a collage of your pictures with her or pictures of her favorite band.
