How to write a thank you note…It never hurts to review.
Tip number one is Hand-write your response.
Write it as soon as possible after you’ve received the gift.
Mention the item in some way. “it’s my favorite color”, or “it fits perfectly on my shelf”. Be gracious. Remember “it’s the thought that counts”! Refrain from saying: “You shouldn’t have”, or “you didn’t have to”. These remarks undermine the giver’s gesture. All you need to say is: Thank you.
The note is best kept simple. Use words like thoughtfulness, generosity and gratitude.
