how to write a heartfelt thank-you note
Nothing can replace a good old-fashioned hand-written thank-you note. But have you ever noticed how long your pen can linger as you struggle to find just the right words? If you’ve got a case of writer’s block, here are a few tips for creating the perfect thank-you note.
Handwrite the note
Even if you don’t have the best penmanship. Just make sure it’s legible.
Don’t worry about the length
The length of the note doesn’t matter, but avoid writing just a single line.
Be sure to mention the reason for the note
Your note should include a thank you for the wonderful evening, your appreciation of a thoughtful gift, or the host’s amazing generosity.
How did the gesture make you feel?
Let your note’s recipient know how their act of kindness made you feel or how you’ll find a great use for the gift.
Before you end the note, add a friendly, “Looking forward to seeing you soon!”
