Here are quick tips to help you compose a thoughtful note of thanks:
Intro. Begin by writing Dear… and the person’s name. It gives your note that personal touch.
Just the facts. Name the specific present with a simple sentence that says something like, “Thank you for the lovely fluffy slippers.”
Fluff. Add another sentence or two about how you plan to use the present or what it means to you. Make it as sincere as possible. “I’ll enjoy wearing them on cold days to keep my tootsies warm.”
Closing. Just wrap it up with a simple something like, “Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.”
Thank you notes don’t have to be long and involved, but the simple show of appreciation in written form lets the person know that their gift was received and their thoughtfulness was appreciated. Set a good example by writing them yourself and helping your kids write them too!
