When to Send Thank-You Cards

With a great gift comes a great responsibility of sending thank-you cards. While it is part of an etiquette to send out appreciation every time you receive a gift, it has been considered as one of those endangered habits that people should bring back from extinction. So, how do write a thank-you card and when is it necessary to send them?

  • For wedding gifts. Wedding gifts are usually expensive and they could come from various types of people in your life, whether they’re close friends or distant family relatives. Therefore, it is just necessary to acknowledge these gifts with a written note. Also, Wedding Thank-You Cards are not just for gifts but also for those people who helped make your wedding a special day.
  • For congratulatory gifts. Birthday gifts and graduation gifts are just a few examples of presents given to congratulate you for an achievement whether it’s reaching a certain age or finishing a course or grade. Most of these gifts come from family members so you don’t have to be overly formal. Keep it short, casual and sweet while telling them how you’ll use the item you received.
  • For shower gifts. Guests usually bring gifts during events for your baby or showers in your honor, so even if they are your closest friends and you had the chance to say thanks in person, you should still send a thank-you card in a timely manner such as within four weeks upon receiving the gift. Also, make sure you mention the gift while keeping your thank-you note short and simple.
  • For gifts received during an illness. To help you show your gratitude for the concern and well-wishes people shower you during a hospitalization, DIY Thank-You Cards are a way to go. This type of card should be written as soon as you feel well enough to acknowledge the gifts received during your confinement.
  • For a scholarship or donation received. Most people do not get this type of opportunity so, it is always a good idea to show your appreciation to any person or organization who gave you the chance to learn the field that you want to be a part of or the chance to be able to help others in need.

If you think you need thank-you cards for any of these occasions and events, feel free to browse through these templates and use them to show how much you love and appreciate every person around you. These templates are editable allowing to you change some elements according to your needs and preferences.

Elements of a Thank-You Card

Whether a thank-you card requires a formal tone or a casual demeanor, you should address them with care by using appropriate words and format. They can be elaborate or simple as long as the message is sent across in a clear manner. Here are some basic elements that you should always include when writing a thank-you note for your cards.

  • The first sentence. Without further ado, you should start your thank note by stating its purpose or what the note is for. Aside from the phrase “thank you,” this is also where you mention and acknowledge the gift or opportunity that you have been given.
  • The second sentence. On the second sentence or next piece, you can explain how much you appreciate the opportunity or gift. Here, you can also let them know how much you like it and the reasons for feeling so. Furthermore, you can also say how you plan to use them.
  • The third sentence. This time, you can use the second paragraph of your thank-you note as a way to continue the connection or keep the relationship you have with the person. It could be plans or statements hoping to catch up with each other soon.
  • The signature. Whatever you state in the body of your letter, you should make sure that you end it with a closing remark and your signature in order to make your note sound pleasant and friendly. It is also one way to make your card more personal and intimate.

Tips to Remember When Writing Thank-You Notes

When you have your design and needed elements for your thank-you cards in place, all you need to do is to go over these tips to make sure your Thank-You Cards are perfect for the kind of message you want to send across.

  • Timing is all. First of all, perhaps the most important thing about saying thank-you is to do it in a timely manner. Even though just saying thank-you is better than not doing at all, it is still imperative to do it immediately before everyone forgets. This is one of the ways to let someone now that you took the time to acknowledge their efforts and kindness.
  • Kind of message. When writing your message, being simple and straightforward is the best way to go about it. For most thank-you notes, formality is always forgone as these types of letters are more personal; although some need a little bit of structure especially notes that are sent to companies and organizations, like the Post Interview Thank-You Letters.
  • Type of message. As mentioned before, there are other ways to send a thank-you message other than written thank-you cards. You need to consider the level of formality your note should have before deciding to send it via text messages or emails. Think of the person you are sending these messages to like your grandparents who may not know how to use computers.
  • Additional notions. You can always choose to bump your thank-you cards up a notch by making it personalized and special. One way to do it is to decorate your cards with details that are relatable to the recipient like ribbons or stamps. You can include a photo of the gift showing how it is being used or an extra trinket such as flowers or baked cookies.
  • Always proofread. Even though it’s just a simple note of thanks, a wrong spelling or grammatical error is always a turn off as it could mean that the card is made in a hurry or just out of respect. Another thing to remember is to keep your tone polite and friendly as well as avoid sounding like promoting or asking for more favors.

There are many ways to structure and arrange the elements in your thank-you notes, but the most important thing is you should always write them from the heart. Also, you have to be careful not to overdo it as it may sound superficial instead. So, while you’re here, don’t forget to check out the different articles available on this website, such as the Printable Thank-You Card Templates for more ideas.
