First, even in this digital age, the ideal form of gratitude is a handwritten note or letter. Sure, you can send a quick email but it’s still important to follow up with a note that you took time to write. Even if you are not a writer, a few lines with a specific reference to the gift that you received should suffice and not take oodles of time.
To make thank you note writing more enjoyable and less of a chore, consider keeping a stack of thank yous handy and some stamps handy so you can grab one conveniently at home and work on it while you’re sitting watching a favorite show or relaxing to some music.
If you have received money as a gift, you should include a line in your note that speaks to how you plan to use it. If you are really stuck for words, ask a friend or family member for help or go online and look for some sample notes to get you started.
Most importantly, don’t procrastinate! Try to get your thank you notes in the mail within a week of receiving your gift.
