A Thank You Book
One of my favorite gifts to send people is a book, especially when I have a book that I know a particular person will really enjoy or get value from. Sometimes I like to do this anonymously, but other times I send it with a personal note when it relates to a particular conversation we may have had. Today's act of kindness fit into the latter category.
I was staying with a friend of mine recently and we had many conversations about his business. I mentioned to him a specific book that I knew would be perfect for him. Though he might eventually get around to checking it out, I figured it would be faster for me to just buy him a copy and send it to him (or order through Amazon). I ordered it today and had it shipped with a note so that he'll have it next week.
Gifts like these really let people know that you're thinking about them because they're so targeted to a specific need or conversation. I know my friend will love this book, so I'm eager for him to read it.
