Writing a thank you note or card to let someone know that you appreciate a gift for a new baby is not only good etiquette but is also a nice gesture that will let that person know how grateful you are.
- Handwrite the note/card, it will be more personal and intimate.
- Thank yous don't have to be long, a few lines is usually sufficient. Focus on content rather than length.
- Send out your thank you within a few weeks.
- Mention the gift in your thank you.
(Thank you for the baby mattress, it will help our little one rest comfortable through the night.)
- If you received a money or gift card, don't mention specific dollar amounts, you can mention what you'll use it for if you choose.
(Thank you for your generous gift, we'll be putting it towards a set of baby bottles to feed the new baby with.)
