The Art of the Thank You Note

When I was younger, my mom always made me write thank you notes after receiving gifts. It seemed like such a hassle at the time but now I am really glad my mom had me do it. It shows good manners and it is just a great think to do!

Over time, I have mastered what to write in my thank you cards. I think part of it is just knowing what to say. I came up with a simple formula.

Intro- Write Dear whoever you are thanking
Sentence 1- Thank the person and state what you are thanking them for
Sentence 2- Say if what you are using their item for (or plan to)
Sentence 3- Thank them again
Closing- Say Love, Thanks, Sincerely, etc. (depending on who you are writing to) and your name

Example:

Dear Grandma,
Thanks for the Starbucks gift card that you got for me! I cannot wait to use it to buy my favorite iced coffee and a cake pop! Thanks again!

Love, Katie

Thank you cards are as easy as that! Half the battle is having thank you cards on hand. I've included some of my favorite thank you cards that will have you dying to write one soon!
