How to Write Thank You Notes

Rajib Singha Feb 8, 2019
Writing thank you notes is an essential aspect of etiquette and thoughtfulness towards people. Such notes should be simple and reflect the sincerity of the writer.
Writing thank you notes is about letting people know that you appreciate their kind favors and everything they have done for you. These notes if filled with heartfelt appreciation, sincerity, and meaning, always work wonders.
You can write these notes on a rough piece of paper, and copy it on a fresh sheet. Always use a smooth pen, and go for cursive handwriting. Calligraphy gives a more refined look to a note. Traditionally, thank you notes are headed by the date and a salutation. For example, 'Dear Aunt May'.
Before thanking someone, do not forget to put down the appropriateness of the act that you are thankful for. This helps in giving more depth to your note.
