    concrete gesture

    Hello

    I was watching a movie and i reached this sentence:

    As a more concrete gesture of our gratitude we'd like to offer you a favor.

    I want to know the meaning of "concrete gesture".

    Thanks

    It means a real gesture. "Concrete" is something you can feel.

    "Concrete gesture" means something more than mere words.

    They're not just thanking the person- they're offering the person a favour, something beneficial in return.
