If you actually have to get a card that says thank you in order to give another gift then it’s not worth receiving one from you.************ *Well, we don’t have to worry about that, now do we?In the case of the gifts I did not receive a thank you for, 2 of the gifts were delivered through family members and I never even saw the gift recipient.
In the case of my son, all but 1 of his graduation gifts were sent in cards through the mail.
He does need to send a written thank you.During the year, he makes calls to out of town family members tothank themfor birthday and holidaygifts and thanks others in person.
I usually send a thank you note to friends for gifts, as I just think it is the nice thing to do.You obviously disagree, but I think that wedding and baby showers, graduations and other formal-type events require written thank yous, no matter how you obtain the gift.
If someone has taken the time, money and thought to go out and purchase a gift or send money, they need to be properly thanked.
