All Occasion Thank You Notes for the Win
Saying thank you is one of the most powerful ways to convey your emotions of gratitude. There are hundreds if not thousands of occasions when you want to say these two simple words, and doing it in a personal way is essential. Thank you notes have been a part of formal etiquette since the dawn of time, but in this day and age, it’s easy to neglect sending them when you really mean it.
The truth is that your thank you note can make or break your relationship with someone, so when you need to send one, there are certain aspects to keep in mind so that it comes across as sincere and not trite. Here are some things to know before sending a handwritten thank you note.
How Long Should I Wait To Send The Note?
A handwritten thank you note is appropriate in all sorts of situations. If you’re thanking someone for helping you move, taking care of your kids for an afternoon, or bringing food over when you’re sick, it’s not only polite—it’s expected. Even if it seems like your coworker did something small (like bring in donuts), that gesture still deserves recognition. However, since we tend to associate handwritten notes with special occasions and larger gestures of thanks (like your friend getting promoted or one of your colleagues smashing their sales goals), there’s usually a little more time before you need to write back.
That said, there are no hard-and-fast rules about how long you should wait between sending out those thank-you cards; follow whatever protocol makes sense for whatever situation you’re dealing with.
