Giveaway! The Art of Saying Thank You

It seems that saying Thank You is becoming a thing of the past.  Showing one's gratitude was once something that people did automatically.  People often wrote thank you notes when others showed signs of endearment, gave gifts, or when they received hospitable service from friends and family.

Nowadays, you are lucky if you get a text message saying thanks. What happened?

Saying Thank you is simple. But in addition to saying it, you must mean it. It is one thing to say Thank you, but it is more important to say it, like you really mean it.  

Arvind Devalia wrote a great article titled, How to Master the Art of Saying Thank you, which is  great read.  Be sure to check it out.

I was always taught that sending a note of thanks to those who go out of their way to do kind things for me, was the proper thing to do.  It doesn't have to be a long and drawn out thank you.  Just a few simple words of thanks will suffice.

If you have never personally written a thank you card, it is very simple.  Here is a quick and acceptable example:

Dear Alicia,

Thank you for your kind gift!  I truly appreciate it!


This style is short and sweet.  Yet, it gets my message across to the recipient. 

For a more formal Thank you note, you can go into a little bit more detail.  Here is an example:

Dear Dena,

Thank you for accompanying me to Toy Fair in NYC.  I truly enjoyed our adventure together and your company.  Your kind gestures and encouraging words were very much appreciated.  I look forward to seeing you again in the near future on our next adventure!  Until then, I wish you much success in your endeavors.


Picking out the perfect Thank you cards is an easy task.  Just pick ones that match your personality.  I tend to go for simple styles.
