Some thank-you notes are elaborate, while others are simply thoughtful. When you use floral thank you cards from Shutterfly, you get to choose the message that is inside. How can you know what to say or whether you should send a gift along with your thanks? Some gift receivers feel that the gift they were given plays a role in the type of thank-you card that should be sent.
The fact is, not all gifts are equal. If your aunt sent you cash while an uncle sent you a homemade dresser, you have to say thank you in different ways. The gift should dictate how you thank the giver. For example, to thank the aunt who sent money, you may want to let her know how you’ll be using these funds. For the uncle, on the other hand, you could send a picture of the dresser in its place or let him know how useful it will be to you.
As you craft your thank you, you should incorporate the gift you were given. This will show the correspondent that you will use and that you like the gift they sent. There are a few ways you may choose to include the gift. First, you can add a picture of the gift in use. For example, if it’s a sweater, send a picture of you wearing the sweater. Second, you can also acknowledge how you will use the gift in the future. If someone sends you a customized photo book or photo collage poster as a gift, you can talk about the enjoyment you will get from looking at it for years to come.
By allowing the gift to dictate what you say in the floral thank you cards, you are able to make each note a little more personal. You want to avoid sending a cookie cutter thank you to friends and family.
