From taking that trip in a lifetime to visiting family and friends our summer vacations are always events to look forward to.  When we visit and stay with friends and family it’s always appropriate to thank them for their hospitality.  Doing this can always be an enjoyable occasion as it can be done as shared time together or a gift to arrive after your departure. 

Saying thank you as a shared time together can be as simple as treating your host family out to dinner at a nice restaurant in their neighborhood or nearby.  By enjoying their company in these final hours of your vacation it is great to relive your experiences with them and to say thank you for putting you and your family up for the stay.  To say thank you with a gift you can make your selection prior to your vacation and have the thank you gift shipped to deliver after you leave or place your order when you arrive home.  A beautiful gift basket thanking for their hospitality is always acceptable very much appreciated.  The toughest part of thanking is deciding what kind of gift to send!
