Gratitude 101: How To Write a Thank You Note

While the thought of writing thank-you notes can be daunting in this age of email, it is much easier than you think and so much more appreciated than an email. Without further ado, sit down with some beautiful stationery and show your gratitude. Here's a quick how-to to get you started. . .

Handwritten Thank You Note

1. Greet the Giver ~ although an obvious one, the "Dear Aunt Jane" line is often overlooked.

2. Express your Gratitude ~ without any unnecessary lead-ins, simply say "Thank you so much for the fill in the blank." If the gift was money, thank them for their generosity but do not directly mention money.

3. Discuss Use ~ say something nice about the gift and how you will use it.

4. Mention the Past, Allude to the Future ~ let the giver know how they fit into your life. {"It was great to see you at Jenny's birthday party, and I hope to see you soon."}

5. Grace ~ express your thanks one more time.

6. Regards ~ Simply wrap up the note using whatever sign-off feels right to you (love, yours truly, etc.).

7. Get it in the Mail ~ address the envelope, stick a great stamp on it, and post it.

Think of the sense of accomplishment you will feel, how appreciated the giver will feel, and the continued stream of gifts you will receive from a happy giver!
