Be careful not to overlook an important aspect of the gift-giving season: thank-you notes.
The thought behind the thank-you should be equal to, or greater than, the thought that went into the gift. But it does not have to be the chore we all dread. In fact, if you follow the “3” rule, you can have this chore beat in no time.
In 3 days… Ideally the thank you note should be written within 3 days of receiving the gift. However, even if it’s much later, it is still special.
On 3 lines… That’s all it takes. (Not including the salutation or your signature)
Make 3 statements…
· Acknowledge the gift, (“How thoughtful of you to remember that I love teapots.”)
· Explain what you will do with the gift, (“I have a box of Earl Grey that I am dying to try.”)
· Express a future meeting or hope of a meeting, (“Looking forward to seeing you at Jack’s party in a few weeks.”)
That’s it. Sign your note. How easy is that!?
Now, there IS one thing more thing that must be done…but this is the fun part! No matter the occasion, start with the paper, the actual card.
When choosing the perfect stationary, look for one that’s elaborate in detail and intricate in design. Envelop lining and artwork, heavier card stock, decals, embellishments and gold leaf script, always boast well. Once retrieved in the mail, it will stand out from the mundane and make the recipient feel special.
Emily Post suggests,” the letter you write, whether you realize it or not, is always a mirror which reflects your appearance, taste and character.”
What a joy to receive a rare treasure —a handwritten thank you note from a family member or friend. No one has to know just how easy it
