There’s nothing like a hefty dose of gratitude around the holiday season. While patrons flock to big box stores and online manufacturers with next-day shipping to load up on Christmas gifts, there are a couple of businesses out there on a mission to remind us that it’s the thought that really counts.

Read on to learn more about seven businesses that are here to help you say thanks this Thanksgiving.

1. Homesick

While typically a destination for sending scented candles designed to bring the comfort of home to an out-of-state loved one, Homesick’s Thanks Candle is a great way to show a little gratitude. With a deliciously aromatic blend of cucumber, lemon, and patchouli, this candle allows you to personalize a handwritten thank you note directly on their packaging.
