THE IMPORTANCE OF THANK YOU NOTES

Even in our face-paced world, a written thank you note is the most polite way to acknowledge a gift. The person who took the time and effort to purchase it, deserves to be thanked.

A note doesn’t need to be long to be sincere. Thank the person for the gift, express your gratitude for it or mention something special about it, and end by restating your thanks or appreciation for their thoughtfulness. Even if the gift is a duplicate or something you don’t care for, express appreciation to the person for their kindness. Never ask where you can return it.

It is important to write your thank you note without delay. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to express your gratefulness and the feelings you had when you opened it. It’s that simple, and you won’t leave the person wondering whether or not the gift was received.

Recently, I heard a lady recount about a college scholarship her family gave yearly. It wasn’t an enormous amount, but it was done in honor of a family member who had passed away. She mentioned that few students actually took the time to write a note of thanks. However, one young lady did and her note expressed heartfelt appreciation for the scholarship. It meant a great deal to her and she wanted the family to know that she was grateful. Because of that note, the family decided to surprise her the following year with additional money to help with her college expenses. People love to give to those who are appreciative. Of course that isn’t the objective behind writing a thank you note. It is to express thankfulness for a gift that you received.

A note of thanks can be written for other kindnesses as well. An unexpected thank you note will bring untold joy to the recipient. What an easy way to brighten another’s day, and your own!
