I gave myself this tag and I "Like" myself too!
- May 4, 2006
This is always how we've done it amongst family and close friends, but then again the gifts are also usually exchanged in person, so that makes a bit of a difference. The exception to this would be shower or wedding gifts, where I think there's at least some small expectation of a written Thank You, regardless of how the gift is delivered. I must say I haven't received a Thank You card for years though although I've certainly given my share of shower and wedding gifts.Any card "you" give me is going to end up in the trash. Christmas, Birthday, Thank You, etc. All end up in the trash. Now of course if a co-worker gives it to me, I am taking it home before it going in the trash.
My ex-in-laws thought it was very strange that first Christmas when I sent Thank You notes. I guess it is just not something they do. After that I stopped. Just say Thank You when you get the gift and done.
