Write a Thank You Note Expertly for Any Occasion

It is obvious that we should write a thank you note for a wedding or shower gift, but when is the last time you sent a thank you for a birthday present?

Often we assume that saying “Thank You” right when we are handed a gift is thanks enough.

Yet, if we took the time to mail a thank you for that birthday gift, it is certain to make the gift-giver feel as special as we did when we received the gift!

We might also consider sending a thank you for a favor, a kind act, or a job well done.

Wouldn’t our world be better if we took time to write a thank you note to the clerk at the hardware store who helped us find just what we needed to fix the sink—and saved us money on a plumber?

A thank you note to your co-workers for their assistance with a project strengthens teamwork; a card sent to a client generates business.

A favor thanked is a favor returned. The old adage is true: you get what you give!

Thank You Notes


To the Manager of Bob’s Hardware:

Today I was shopping in your store and “Gene” helped me find the thing-a-ma-bob that I needed to fix my air conditioner. I thought I would have to call a service out to fix it, but Gene took the time to explain everything. He even jotted down a diagram so I knew how to get the cover off! I followed his instructions and now our house is nice and cool.

I will be sure to shop at Bob’s again.

Thanks!

Dear Pam,

Thanks for taking over the sales reports this week. With the director on vacation, I was swamped. Everything was in order and the board didn’t have any questions during our meeting. I’m so glad to have you on our team!

Sincerely,

Dear Mom and Dad,

Thanks for the birthday dinner last night. You always remember how much I love your homemade strawberry shortcake. It gets more delicious every year! How can that be?

Thanks again for everything!

Love,
