Yes yes yes. My Mother taught us always to write thank you notes. Me and my next older brother even send thank you notes to each other and the family! It is a touch of grace and kindness in our lives that should not be overlooked.

Unfortunately I am still holding a grudge from years ago where I bought a good friend a nice wedding shower present and never received any thank you note or otherwise.


Congratulations and well wishes on your wedding!

I love sending thank you notes and really wish more people sent them as well. That's why I love the holiday season, first I get to send holiday cards to pretty much everyone I know, and then after Christmas I get to send thank you cards. In my family, there's only a couple of us who send thank you notes, my two cousins after they receive gifts of any kind and myself.

As for getting people to write more thank you notes, I'm not really sure what would work. I would think that receiving one would be enough to make them think they should as well. But, I do like the idea of including a set of cards and stamps to inspire them.

I wasn't raised to write thank you cards. It was the example of an older friend who inspired me to start--and she did so by giving me some really pretty cards. I'm not always so good about it now though, but I do try. My wedding and even shower thank yous were a high priority so I understand you there. Congrats, by the way :)
