Guides for personal thank you notes:
Keep it real. Be sure your thank you note
fits the person you are thanking by the
tone and style of your writing.
In your thank you note, mention the gift and
what you plan to use it for. Even if the gift
is a monetary one - you can tell the giver
what you want to do with it.
Be sure to acknowledge how wonderful
and/or useful the gift is in your thank you note.
Always send your thank you notes within
a weeks time or as soon as possible so
that the gift and what it means to you is fresh in your mind.
