Thank-you notes writing tips

Posted by Manjusha Filed in English Writing

Thank-you notes express thanks. Because they have a specific purpose, thank-you notes have to be organized more carefully than personal letters. Follow these guidelines when you write a thank-you note:

  • Mention the specific gift or act of kindness.
  • Explain why the gift or kindness was appreciated. Be as specific as possible.
  • Send the letter promptly, since this can help avoid misunderstandings, as well as show your appreciation.
  • What happens if you didnít like the gift? No matter how stinky the gift, it still deserves acknowledgment. Don't lie and gush about the gift. Instead, be polite and more general in your thanks.
