Send a smile!

WED­NES­DAY, DEC. 26 NA­TIONAL THANK-YOU NOTE DAY

Woman's World - - News -

When we asked eti­quette ex­pert Diane Gotts­man of The Pro­to­col School of Texas for the se­cret to writ­ing a sin­cere thank-you note, she shared this “time-tested” for­mula: “In­clude a line or two thank­ing them for their kind­ness and specif­i­cally men­tion­ing the gift,” she ad­vises. “Then give de­tails on how much the ef­fort meant to you

or how you in­tend to use the item.” For ex­am­ple, Thank you for the beau­ti­ful bou­quet. It bright­ens my foyer and brings a smile to my face every time I pass by. Not a gift you can use? “Thank them for the thought,” says Gotts­man. “Write: ‘You clearly put a lot of thought into this gift. I ap­pre­ci­ate your think­ing of me.’”
