A thank you note – is it really necessary?

Face it, we all struggle with writing thank you notes.   And perhaps there is no time that this is more apparent then after the holidays.  In these days of electronic communications – phone calls, text messages, social media – it even really necessary to write a personal thank you any more? WHY A personal note is a classy gesture.  There are many quick ways to express your thanks, but a personal, handwritten note will stand out above any other forms and lets the recipient know that they are worth it and that they mean something to you.  It’s true that hand-written notes are becoming a thing of the past (thanks to so many forms of quick and easy electronic communications), but it is for that very fact that your hand-written note will be even more appreciated.  Think about going through your mail each day.  If you are like most Americans, the first items to be opened will be something in a nice envelope with a handwritten address! WHO Thank you notes are appropriate for holiday gifts, shower or wedding gifts, birthday gifts and even to express thanks for a kind gesture.  And a handwritten note for a job interview is always a must and one thing you can do to set your apart from all the other candidates.  However, don’t stop there.  Think about dropping a note in the mail to thank a hostess for a great party or even to offer congratulations or condolences.
