Do you do thank you cards for holiday gifts?

The thought never crossed my mind, but now I'm wondering if I'm supposed to?

Re: Do you do thank you cards for holiday gifts?

  • I send thank you notes for everything, but I think I'm in the minority these days.  DH's family thinks I'm crazy and frequently makes fun of me for sending them.  I just can't *not* send them.  Too engrained from too early an age.

  • Same... I send a thank you for any gift we get regardless of when it is.  I wasn't allowed to play with toys growing up until I wrote the thank you note!

  • It is something we do as well. I have them written out, but need t address them and send them still.

  • I only do thank you cards for gifts that I wasn't able to thank the giver in person.  Usually for the holidays, that means I don't have to write many/any.  If someone sends a gift in the mail or has someone else bring a gift to a party that they were able to attend, then I definitely do. 

    exception being wedding/baby showers - I still sent thank yous even though everyone saw me open the gift and I thanked them there.

  • If I do not open a gift in front of the giver, I send a thank you note.  Example: a close friend who lives in Houston sent me a gift, I mailed her a thank you note.

    I don't send thank you notes to my immediate family (parents, brother + his family), since I open the gifts in front of them and thank them in person.

    There are a few exceptions to these guidelines for me, but that's my usual.

    Every word of this. I send thank yous any time I get a gift.

    Me either!  And, mean mommy alert, I think I'm going to do the same thing to Kate.
