Dust Off the Stationary and Begin Practicing Your Cursive

With all the quick communication with emails and cell phones, the class of handwritten communication is often lost. When it comes to writing thank you notes, however, nothing is more respectful than a classic handwritten note.

A handwritten thank you note is one of the most personalized and sincere forms of communication. When you take the extra time to write a thoughtful word to a friend or loved one you are showing that you have put extra thought into recognizing their kindness towards you. Timeliness is also an important consideration; your notes should be written within a week of a party or reception of a gift and it should be short and to the point. The most important part is not following a specific format, but being yourself and being personal. Your friends will enjoy any acknowledgement and thanks, wouldn’t you?

Please leave a comment about any thank you note suggestions you may have!
