"How to Write a Thank You Note"

Disclaimer: This may come as a cop out blog, since I did not write this which is the centerpiece of this post (obviously, since it is on another blog written by another human.) However, I HIGHLY recommend that you read the short but incredibly insightful piece on how to write a thank you note to knock the socks off anyone being thanked for any reason ever.

For those of you to lazy to click the link, key points include:

1. Don't write "thank you" on anything that already says Thank You. That's child's play stationery right there. Get yourself some monogrammed notes or some nice card stock. Ed. note: my favorite Christmas gift this year were Crane & Co. cards with the legal Scales of Justice embossed in gold. SWOON.

2. Start out with "You," because everyone likes hearing about himself. Example: You threw such a fantastic New Year's party! It was a delight to be included, yadda yadda yadda.

3. Don't say "thank you" until the very last sentence.

Presto-chango, you have the most adult sounding/looking/seeming Thank You Note in the history of pseudo-adults, and all it took was some precise wording and cards that didn't already scream "HEY LOOK WHAT I'M ABOUT TO SPEND A PARAGRAPH SAYING TO YOU!"

You're welcome.

Something to think about
