When writing to a close friend or relative:
Dearest Aunt Ricki:
It's beautiful and we love it!!!!! How thoughtful
of you to give John and me such a lovely family treasure. Grandmas'
hand-crocheted bedspread will be my most prized possession. We both thank
you from the bottom of our hearts!
Love and Kisses,
When writing to a person you don't know very
Dear Mrs. Smith:
Mother just gave me the beautiful crystal cake
pedestal you left and I couldn't wait to tell you how lovely it is. John
and I will think of you each time we use it. Thank you so very much.
When writing to a group of friends who have
gone together on a gift:
Thank you all very much for the place setting of
sterling you so kindly have given to us for our new home. John and I now
have a service for eight and are so looking forward to using it for every
special occasion in our life. What a thoughtful idea. You are such a great
group to work with and I appreciate each one of you.
If less than ten people have gone together on the
above gift, then a personal note to each must be written. If more than ten
have participated and signed the enclosure card, such as in the case of
coworkers in the same office, one note, placed on a bulletin board is considered
proper etiquette. Be sure to speak to each person individually as the
opportunity arises and express your gratitude.
When writing a thank you note for a gift not
really cared for:
Dear Randy and Nicki:
Thank you so much for the gum ball machine.
We'll be sure you're among our first guests to visit, so don't forget your
pennies! Looking forward to seeing you soon.
When writing a thank you note for monetary
Appreciation for monetary gifts are expressed in
the same way you would thank a friend or loved one for a purchased item.
If you have a particular item you intend to buy with the money, you can share
that with them.
Dearest Aunt Debbie,
John and I want to thank you so much for the check you sent for our wedding. We
have been saving for a down payment on our first home and
have added your gift to our special account. It was so thoughtful of you.
Someday soon, we will be inviting you to our housewarming!!!
Can't wait to see you and Uncle Jay again.
