Hello friends, happy weekend wishes! The gifts are unwrapped your decorations are put away and I’m hopeful your smile continues. I hope you keep the feeling of Christmas with you throughout the new year. Now it’s time to sit down and write a thoughtful thank you card.
Whether you’re saying thank you for a gift, for hosting a party, or for staying at their home for the holidays, a personal ( not electronic) thank you card is a thoughtful way to spark happy memories. This simple acknowledgment makes the gifter know just how much you appreciate their thoughtful gift, kindness, etc. even more.
My daughter is rolling her eyes right now and saying, “Mom nobody writes thank you cards anymore, send an e-card”. I’m sorry, I just can’t do it.
General etiquette dictates we send a thank you card out as soon as possible. But, if it’s been more than three weeks, consider starting with an apology ( not an excuse) just something brief, like, “I’ve been planning to sit down and write you to say thank you for ___________
Giving thanks with a handwritten note is the sweet gesture they will remember. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just sincere.
Please, let’s keep the art of writing a personal thank you card alive and get them in the mail on Monday. I hope these Tips For Writing a Thoughtful Thank You Card will help you say thank you in a very special way.
