When receiving a gift or a kind gesture, a thank you note should always be written. What goes into a well written note? Here are a few tips:
Greeting = “Dear XX”, “Hello”
Appreciation = “Thank you for…”, “It was so kind of you to…”
Acknowledgment = “The five piece place setting of our formal china”, “The Cuisinart mixer…”
Planned Use = “We can’t wait to have you over for dinner”, “The vase looks lovely on our buffet”
Salutation = “With love…”, “Sincerely,”
Remember, be prompt with writing the notes, acknowledgment should occur within one week of the gift’s receipt. If it was from a wedding, two weeks maximum if you’re taking a honeymoon.
