Gifts?! (11)

For the first time I have a happy question to ask everyone! XD

Basically, my aunt and uncle just gave me a lot of money to help me pay for my first semester of college. They knew my mom and I were having trouble coming up with enough, and they just called and said that they were going to contribute a great deal to help me out.

The problem therein lies in that I have no idea how to thank them. Normally I'd just write a note and bake something, but I think a gift of this magnitude deserves something more than that. How can I possibly show my gratitude for this? Any suggestions would help!

Thank youuuuu~!

Write a sincere letter, find out what their favorite baked good are, and bake them a lot. There's really nothing else you can do, other than offer profuse thanks and be sincere about it.

Also, it's cool knowing that I'm not the only one who likes to give out baked goods in thanks ^_^

> me pay for my first semester of college.

Read that own bit of your own post. Slowly. Again. Now, do you see where I'm going?

Haha, yeah! Everyone likes baked goods, so maybe I should give them lots of them...

No... I don't.

The best thank you gift you could do to them would be to work hard, do your best, and succeed in your studies. And when you graduate, you go to them and thank them.

Oh, how wonderful. A thoughtful letter is the best start, thanking them for the money and promising to do your very best in school. From then on, I recommend possibly something they can see and be reminded of you.

I can only second what's already been said here. My grandparents did the same for me. When reading the letter they were so happy they even cried and told everyone. They still love it and said they sometimes read it in the evening, because it makes them happy.
I think a sincere gesture of gratitude which you made yourself and from the heart is the best way. And what use would it be if you spent the money you just got on a present?
Plus, of course, do your best at college!

>>3 Some colleges run in semesters, not quarters.

OP here.

I ended up writing them a really lengthy letter and sent it, and although we eventually decided to decline their generosity, I think everything I wrote still stands.

Thank you for all your help, everyone~!! <3

You didn't get it. Read >>5 for further understanding.
