Cheap Thank You Gift Ideas


Sometimes a friend has just the right words to encourage you. Friends show up at just the right time, offering a shoulder to lean on or an extra pair of arms to help you move. It would be kind to show your appreciation with a small token or gift. Thank you presents do not have to be pricey or showy. Give an inexpensive gift to show your thankfulness for a friend's selfless act.


  • Pens are items you never have enough of. A message pen is a worthy gift for a helpful friend. This pen comes in blue or black ink and has a printed message on the barrel. Messages like "Thank you for being there" are meaningful. A set of gel pens that come in a zip bag for easy storage is a good option. Whimsical friends might enjoy a flower pen. Flower pens have silk flowers taped to the ends. The pens are usable but decorative when the rest in a pen cup or jar.

Stress Toys

  • Stress toys are inexpensive gifts to present as thank you gifts. Friends get stress relief from squeeze the handheld ball. Stress balls come in round shapes like the earth or have the image of a character on it. Other cheap stress gifts are novelty keys that slide over a keyboard. A set of three plastic keys slide over the keys of your keyboard. The novelty keys say different words like "Rats!" or "Argh!"

Sweet Treats

  • A tin of hard candy is a cost-efficient thank you present. Give cinnamon, butterscotch or flavored hard candies. People that love chocolate would enjoy a small sampling of wrapped truffles or chocolate candies. Fill a glass jar with candy-coated chocolate pieces.


  • Notepads tied with silk ribbon make a pretty presentation. Lavender-scented stationery with envelopes is inexpensive to give. Small white thank you notes are a good present for a thoughtful friend. For a special touch, open the package, and write a personal note of appreciation in the first card. Frogs on lily pads or ballerinas dancing make good backgrounds for printed notepads.

Hand Care

  • A tube of hand lotion tucked in an organza bag makes an instant present. Give hand lotions with a vanilla scent for added relaxation. Alternatively, give a jar of hand scrub with an exfoliating agent in it for a good clean. Write a note on a small gift card, and tie it to the pump of the scrub.
