Thank You Note Tips

Nothing says Thank You, like a hand written thank you note for anything from a gift, to just a thank you to say, "thanks for calling" or thank you for being my friend! Here are some recent tips I found from our etiquette expert, Emily Post, Etiquette, 17th Edition

A Handwritten Note is a Joy to Receive.
*Remember: Be sincere and write promptly.
*Write from the heart.
*Use expressions that are natural to you.
*Keep it brief and to the point.
*Don't forget to include the date.
*Do your best to write legibly.
*Include a "How are you?"
*In thank-you notes, be appreciative and say something specific about the gift
* Note life events with personal letters.
And above all, be gracious
