It’s the Thought that Counts

What’s the best way to acknowledge a gift received if you really hate it?
I hate to toot my own horn but this is something that I’ve gotten pretty good at. You do always want to send a thank you card to anyone has sent you something. My standard thank you note says “Thank you so much for the thoughtful gift. It really means a lot to me that you thought of me on my special day.” And you also want to make sure and mention what the gift was somewhere in the card. Whether it’s a not so attractive sweater or some art that doesn’t go with your decor, I think you should always mention what the gift was. Hope that helps!

  1. Brandy–Thanks for letting me be part of the Gift Tree Family this 2009 Holiday Season. I really appreciated all the support and all the fun that was had in customer service. I hope to become part of the Gift Tree Family in the future. Have a wonderful Holiday Season.

  2. Maybe it’s about time we bring back the traditions of the days of yore (LOL). Seriously, nobody does thing thank you notes nowadays. There are some who do, but it’s becoming an art form in itself. The moment you blogged about it here and the fact that some people had to inquire about it means that it’s a practice that’s not being done anymore. I will apply it in my circle of friends and see what happens.

  3. So… thank you so much for the ugly sweater, that was really nice of you? Ha ha. Just kidding. You’re right, though. Even if you don’t like it, it’s the thought that counts, and I appreciate it when people think of me and give me gifts! :)
