Thank You Notes
Those dreaded thank you notes! Even though we procrastinate to write them, the recipient is very grateful to receive them. Don’t you feel the same way when you receive a thank you note?
Why must I write them? First, it’s a nice gesture and second, it lets the gift-giver know you received their gift. You hate to say it but people remember if you don’t acknowledge their gift just like they will remember if you sent them a thank you note.
What do I write? We have all been faced with that blank piece of paper. You don’t have to write a lot. For example: “Thank you for the towels. They will look great in our bathroom. We appreciate you thinking of us at this special time in our lives.”
Below are some Do’s and Don’ts to writing thankyou notes:
