The Art of Thank You Cards5:30:00 AM
Call me old fashion, but I still appreciate it when people write thank you notes. Whether it’s for an interview, a gift or for a lovely dinner, it’s always a nice touch. No, I’m not talking about a text message! I mean a note that was neatly hand written on stationary that is either mailed or hand delivered. Showing your appreciation by writing a hand written note can go a long way and is completely underrated.
Here a few tips for those who are new to this act of kindness:
- Hand write the notes – the extra effort you take to write this speaks volumes
- Purchase stationary – No need to spend a fortune, these can be found at any office supply store
- Personalize it – Make sure to refer to the actual gift or what you enjoyed talking to them about
- Slow down – Take your time to write legibly and neatly so they can actually read the words!
It seems like so many people are moving away from writing thank you's and just sending a quick, impersonal text message or not even thanking someone at all. I just can’t imagine! Not only is it good etiquette, but is simply a nice way of showing your gratitude.
