Thank you notes are such a great way to make someone’s day. With texting, calling, and social media, thank you notes are not as common as they once were. We used to sit down and hand write a note to someone about the dinner party they hosted, but now a quick text will suffice. Here are some ways to get creative with your thank you notes this summer. There is no doubt it will put a smile on your friends’ faces.
May and June are exciting months for people graduating from high school or college. It is such a milestone for students and parents. Usually for graduation parties, the graduate receives lots of cards and gifts. It can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with who brought what gifts and what the gift was. Keeping a list while unwrapping gifts will help keep everything straight so it will make writing thank you notes easier. Writing thank you notes to everyone who brought gifts may feel like a daunting task to the new graduate, but it is important to remember the effort people went through to bring the gift and come to the graduation party.
Thank You to your Party Hosts
This next one is not only for summer, but for all year. Parties, barbecues, and get togethers are so fun especially in the summer when you can be outside and enjoy the sun and nice weather. It is so fun to get to enjoy life with your friends and family especially for special occasions. After a Saturday at the lake or a weekend at the beach, send a quick note to the host letting them know what a great time you had. These simple gestures will make your host smile and hopefully invite you back again.
Appreciation to Teachers/ camp counselors
As summer is on its way, the school year is wrapping up and that means kids will be moving up. Teachers receive gifts at Christmas and during Teacher Appreciation week, but they worked hard all year to teach your kids more than just reading and math. A simple thank you note from a parent and child could make your teacher’s day. As summer rolls around many parents will put their kids in summer camps even if it is just a vacation bible camp at a local church. At the end of the week a thank you note could make their whole week.
These small gestures and something as simple as a thank you note go a lot further than we think!
