After reading about the bride that refuses to send thank you notes to those that gave her wedding gifts, I started to wonder… have we lost our manners?  The bride simply refused to write “thank you for the gift”. How ungrateful. Maybe she’s putting it off because it is not fun.

Is Writing Thank You Notes Painful?

It is sometimes painful to write thank you notes. What you have got to do to get over the pain is to change shoes. Put yourself in the gift giver’s shoes. I’m sure they put some thought into your gift. If you had given them a gift instead, wouldn’t you like to know that they appreciated it?

Show Your Appreciation

In your thank you note tell them that you appreciated their gift. Even if you’ve returned it already, let them know you enjoyed seeing them and appreciate the thought they put into your gift.

At A Loss for Words?

If you don’t know what to say in your thank you note, use a trick that my grandmother taught me. When she received a gift she wasn’t sure that she liked, she’d say “Isn’t that something!”  Of course, everything is something!

Use the same trick when you write your thank you notes – write your gift was really something!

Please don’t be rude. Please take the time to thank those that give you a gift.

I stumbled upon the website and was curious about how many places has customers – how many towns across the nation have ordered from us.

After a quick database query to pull unique zip codes (if we have shipped to a zip code many times, I only got the zip code once). The total zip codes came to over 6000!

I fed the data to TargetMap and here’s what came out
