Thank-You Note How-To and Sample Ideas

Posted by infinitygoods on January 1, 2008

It’s easy to write a thank-you note if you keep it short and simple. It doesn’t need to be long. It could even just be a small card preprinted with the words “Thank You” that you simply sign and mail. These days so few people send thank-you notes that you’ll really make someone’s day. Just keep it simple and keep it sincere, and it’s never too early to teach children to send a thank-you because even a newborn can draw a scribble.

Here are some samples:

  • Thank you! I love it!
  • Thank you for (fill in the blank). It was such a pleasant surprise on Christmas morning.
  • You made my day! Thank you for the (fill in the blank).
  • So sweet of you to remember that I like _____ . Thank you!
  • Thank you for thinking of me. You are such a thoughtful person.
  • Thank you for _____ . It will be so useful for _____ .
  • I’m so lucky to have a friend like you. The _____ is fantastic. Thank you so much.
  • Thank you doesn’t seem enough for a (fill in extravagant gift), but you leave me speechless.
  • Thank you so much! You are great!
  • Thank you for being so nice. I love the _____ .
  • You couldn’t have picked better. Thank you.
  • Thank you for _____ .
  • Thank you so much!
  • Sweets from a sweet person like you are twice as nice. Thank you for remembering me on (fill in occasion).
  • Enjoyed your homemade treats. Thank you for taking the time to make (fudge, toffee, etc. fill in the blank).
  • Thank you for thinking of me this Christmas (or appropriate occasion).
  • I always love your gifts. Thank you for being such a special (fill in the blank, friend, mom, sister, etc.).
  • Thank you. You’re the best.
  • I will have so much fun (reading, eating, etc. fill in the blank appropriately). Thank you!
  • Love it! Love you! Thank you!
  • Thank you!

Time For The New Year And Thank-Yous

Posted by infinitygoods on January 1, 2008

wfmwbluebanner.jpgResolve to write a short thank-you note to each person who gave you a gift.

The person who gave you a gift took the time to either make it by hand or to brave the nasty Christmas crowds and traffic. Neither rain, snow nor sleet prevented them from going out just for you. They wrapped the gift just for you, and they might even have had to wait in those long post office lines. They could have spent their time and money on plenty of other people, including themselves, but they chose to do something nice for you.

The least you can do is show them your appreciation by sending them a short note. It doesn’t have to be long, but it will make them happy, and even more so these days when so few people send thank-yous. So be one of the polite people.

And I’ll let you in on a little secret. Even if you don’t want to be polite, even if you don’t give a hoot about that kind person who thought so nicely about you, even if you are just one big selfish person, it will be in YOUR best interest to send them a thank-you note. Today, so few people send thank-yous that you’ll get noticed in a good way and people will give you EVEN MORE GIFTS.
