Six Steps to Top-Notch Thank-You Notes
Learn to take your thank-you notes to the next level
Use tools that show you care about how the note looks. No scribbling with a worn out marker on the back of an old homework assignment!
Greet the person by name (and be sure to spell it correctly). Example: Dear Aunt Jasmine,
Express your feelings about what the person did for you. You might use some of these words:
Thank you for, I appreciate, I’m so thankful, I’m grateful for, your kindness, your generosity, your thoughtfulness
Tell what the person did and describe the result. It might sound like this: Your kind words after the concert made me feel like all those piano lessons were really worth it. Or: I’ll be sure to snuggle up in those pajamas when it gets cold this winter.
End with a kind observation about the person. For example, you can tell Grandpa how nice it was to see him or wish Cousin Parker a safe trip home.
Use a closing and sign your name. Try Much Love, Sincerely, Yours Truly, or Your Friend.
