How To Write a Thank You Note in 6 Easy Steps

Do you want to write a note, but aren’t sure what to say or how to say it?  I have six steps that I follow every time I write a thank you note, and they’ll make it a lot easier to put your thoughts down on paper. How to Write a Thank You Note…

How to Write a Thank You Note


I’m a big believer in thank you notes.  And thank you treats. ☺ This technologically savvy world we live in has provided us with super fast ways to communicate, including text and e-mail. But when it comes to saying thank you, nothing beats a hand-written thank you note.  I’m talking about a good, old fashioned, lick the envelope, put a stamp on the front and drop it in the mailbox kind of note.  Isn’t it the BEST feeling when you check the mail, and find a letter addressed to you that’s not junk mail or a bill? Something meant just for you?

When you take the time to write out a note, you’re telling someone that they are worth the extra effort.  It doesn’t have to be fancy,  just a simple expression of your appreciation. Even when job interview etiquette dictates that an e-mail thank you was acceptable, a written note is the extra mile. Who knows? It might be just the thing that helps you get the job!  When you get married or have a baby, and receive lovely gifts, send written notes–they will tell each person how much you appreciate their thoughtfulness.

I’m trying to teach this to my children, and I hope that starting them young will ingrain in them the importance of gratitude, and taking the time to show it.

I also love dropping by a cute bag of cookies, a mason jar full of chocolate, or some other fun treat as a token of my appreciation.  I know I love when some yummy treat shows up at my door!

I’ve created some really fun printable tags for just this very purpose.  I use a 2 inch circle punch to cut them out, but you can use also use  scissors.  They fit perfectly on top of a mason jar lid, along with some baker’s twine tied around it!  Ribbon, twine, or even a strip of fabric would also be really cute. You can also punch a hole in the top of the tag, and tie it on a clear bag or box filled with goodies.

SO easy and SO cute!
