I always believed in living well by living thoughtfully. Thus, I never fail to send a thank you note whenever it is in order. I always thought that whenever someone sends me a gift, hosts me for a day or a weekend or had me for a dinner party, a handwritten thank you is not an optional response, in fact, it’s the best response. You and I mus know that nobody loves an ingrate.
That being said, I always have an ample supply of stationery. Most of what I have are personalized ones, some I had printed from Crane’s, and some are directly bought from the Crane’s store in Manhattan. I believe that your stationery reveals a lot about you, so you have to pick something that you really love. I like writing thank you’s like I’m speaking to the person.
It is however acceptable to just pick up the phone when you are to say thank you to your sister or your mother in law. What matters is you expressed you’re grateful and you did what was proper.
