If we’ve learned anything this year it’s that our essential workers are truly making our worlds go ‘round. They are utterly essential. Our package deliverers, medical professionals, mailmen and women, grocery clerks, and baristas are an integral part of our day-to-day. They were essential prior to the pandemic, but it is crystal clear now how much our lives depend on them. As we complete one year of living with all of the necessary pandemic precautions, why not put together some gifts of thanks to share with the essential workers in your life?
Give the Gift of Custom PPE
Stay on-theme with the pandemic by gifting your essential workers with a set of custom PPE items. Fill a small gift bag with several personalized face masks with a quippy statement like “still smiling” and then add a couple of bottles of custom hand sanitizers. Personalize your message of thanks on the masks, sanitizers or a custom gift tag to make sure they know how grateful you are!
Refresh Your Delivery Drivers with Cold Drinks
Create a custom koozie with a message of gratitude and offer your essential workers a cold drink, complete with a personalized can cooler to reuse. Set a table on your front porch with a cooler of sodas or mineral waters, along with instructions and the personalized can coolers. You’ll brighten their day and offer them a refreshing drink— it’s a pandemic gratitude win/win!
Share Delicious Snacks in Custom Bags with Tags
Offer your essential workers something tasty by filling cute bags with artisan popcorn or mini donuts or whatever your favorite to-go snack is. Create a heart-felt design of gratitude on the personalized cello bags and tags, tie it up with ribbon and voilá! You have a beautiful gift and tasty gift to offer the essential workers in your life.
Add a Personalized Note to Your Thank You Gift
Write a card to tuck into your thank you gifts to express your gratitude to your essential worker. Any thank you note is appreciated, but take your note up a notch with custom designed stationery from For Your Party. With endless paper colors and foil stamping options, you can create a signature look that is unique to you.
Whatever gift you decide to offer your essential workers, be assured that your kindness will not go unnoticed. In such tenuous times, we all could use an extra measure of kindness shared, and giving your essential workers a thoughtful, personalized gift is a perfect way to do just that.
