5 Perfect Thank-You Gifts Under $50 

When you are thanking a friend, colleague, neighbor, or other person who you are close to or who has been a great help to you on a regular basis, why not send them a little something in addition to the words you express in a card? The key to making the recipient happy is to choose something that will make their everyday life something little brighter. It is even better if it is not too expensive, but has a special touch that seems a bit out of the ordinary in a good way, something you would not have chosen for yourself.

In this article, we would like to introduce products under $50 that are perfect for "Thank-you" gifts. All of them are small in size that take up little space, and are full of charm that are unique to Japanese tableware. Tableware that adds color to mealtimes, an essential part of daily life, would make a great gift to show your appreciation for the people you care about.

Yatsuyanagi Sakura Pail Akita Cherry Bark Work Single-Flower Vase

A great gift for interior design lovers is this chic brown colored vase for a single flower, full of the natural charm of kabazaiku (wild cherry bark work). The bark of the cherry tree creates a unique sheen and pattern that makes it an eye-catching item.

Many people have larger vases, but do not often have single-flower vases, and it is also an item that is easy to coordinate if you have many of them depending on their chemistry with flowers. They go well not only with Japanese-style interiors, but also with any interior design, adding a touch of elegance to any space in your home.
