Lifestyle: Thank You Cards

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Saying "thank you" is something that we all are use to saying when someone goes out of their way to do something nice or pay a compliment, the first thing that you will say is thank you! But how about taking "thank you" a step about sending a handwritten thank you card?

Most cases when a thank you card is being sent; it's because you have either attended an celebratory event where you purchased a gift, you have been interviewed for a job etc...I think you catch my drift.

Now here is where that step further comes into play....if you are in a management position at your employer and your team(or employee) goes above and beyond on a task or project, or a classmate helped you study for that final exam you have been dreading and you received a passing grade or maybe your mentor (or a mentor in your head) said or wrote a message and it spoke right to you. These are instances where you can send a nice handwritten thank you card thanking that individual. 

When writing your thank you note...SPECIFY why you are thanking that individual.

Let me add...I have not sent a thank you card in a while(insert shame face here), but I plan on it, because lately, I have been purchasing some of the cutest thank you stationary cards just for this reason. 

Thank you card stationary does not have to cost an arm and a leg. I normally purchase mine from either TJMaxx, Marshall's or the dollar spot at Target. Such as the ones below.

What are some reasons you would send a thank you card? When was the last time you sent a thank you card to someone?

  2. I have boxes of cards. I believe that people like to receive things in the mail other than bills, so I love sending cards. While I definitely believe that you should send thank you cards to help those who have helped you. But you really don't need an excuse to send a card. Send a thinking of you or a just because. You never know how much you can brighten someones day.

  3. I love giving out thank you cards to those that do sweet things for me or my kiddos without me having to ask. It's a cute and simple way to let people know you appreciate them.

  4. I love thank you cards. I sent one for a bereavement check-up recently. Your post is a reminder how much I should send them more. (Especially since I love making them). Thx

  5. Haaa... I literally gave a "Thank you" card today, I love sending handwritten notes and small gifts as a token of appreciation to surprise ppl when they least expect it. It's such a nice gesture and added touch of joy to bring a smile to someone's face.
