With graduation parties often come many gifts from friends and family who received personalized graduation invitations. Say thanks to your besties to show them that you appreciate their generosity! Thank you notes can be just as stylish as graduation announcements. Here are a few tips to make the process of saying thank you more efficient:
- Keep a list of gifts as you receive them. There’s nothing worse than sitting down to thank your aunt and then completely forgetting what she got you in the first place (and we don’t recommend making something up). By keeping an organized list, you’ll be able to quickly and accurately complete your thank you notes.
- Tell them what their gift is going toward. Most high school and college grads receive money as a gift. While you may accidentally spend the cash on fast food, you may want to tell them that their money will go toward helping you get through college or find a job.
- Keep it brief – especially if you have many thank yous to send out. You don’t have to write out a novel to show them how appreciative you are of their generous gift. Stick to about three to four sentences. Choose a simple card that is going to be appropriate for the length of your message like this Heartfelt Thank You card.
- Mail your note as soon as you write it. This may seem like an obvious piece of advice, but if you let it sit on your counter, you may forget about it and find it a few months later.
