Do you send Thank You notes? If you do, how and when do you do it?
I prefer in person Thank You’s. If I can, I have our children thank the giver immediately in person. If it’s something that they get in he mail, I have them phone the giver that day. I no longer send notes unless it is from someone I don’t have a phone number for or won’t see in person.
I send cards, gifts, etc. quite often and seldom even get acknowledgement that the package arrived let alone a thanks. That makes me wonder if my/my children’s thank you notes are even received. If we talk directly to the person/people that gave a gift to us, I know that they know how much we appreciated their thoughtfulness. It also gives us a chance to connect with family and friends that are far away. Of course, in person is my favorite! I want people to know that I love that they thought of me.
What do you do?
