Default How to thank a special somebody?

I have this person in my life whom I feel has kept me afloat in terms of my emotional well being but I don't think this person is quite aware of the important role they play in my life so I want to say thanks but don't know how

It really depends on their relationship to you. Family member, friend, professional..? How do you know this person/in what context?

I’d say just be completely honest and let the person know how you feel, but as Elysium said it depends on your relationship with this person. Use discretion, and don’t go overboard if you know what I mean, but express your gratitude and feelings in a manner you deem appropriate.
Life is too short to hold back, and regret not speaking your mind. At least that’s what I’ve learned from experience.

If you're friends, then writing a card or letter or buying them a thoughtful gift are good options. Ultimately, you know them best and you best know what they'd like, what's important and special and meaningful to them.

I’d say that some time when alone just say
“hey I wanted you to know that you’ve been like a rock in my life and that’s a huge thing for me. I really appreciate all you’ve done and your an awesome friend”
Then give that person a big hug

In my world a hug is worth a lot. Not something just anyone can give me

If someone was that nice to you then I'm sure they aren't the kind of person that would expect anything in return. My advice is to just be there for them when they need a friend. And that will happen. It's very unusual for someone to live a life without going through hard times. Other than that I would say pas it on. Make the world a better place. That's what they would likely want you to do.

If you are set on giving them something why not the receipt from a donation to their favourite charity that you made in their name?

Like Newleafsfan said some people like that do not even expect to be thanked. They are just good people.

Find out how they would be st respond. Some people prefer being told, or being hugged, or having a gift gotten for them. It depends on the individual person. Maybe flowers, or a small thoughtful Christmas gift and personal card this year.
