While to some writing thank you letters or notes may seem like an outdated practice that is not necessary in today’s fast-paced world, the very fact that it is less common makes it that much more special when you do send or receive one. Whether the person you’re writing to recently gave you a gift, did you a favor, or just imparted some good advice, thank you notes are always welcome and are certain to make the recipient feel sincerely appreciated.
If you’ve never composed a thank you letter before, don’t fret. Just follow the simple outline below to write an excellent thank you note at your One 51 Place apartment:
Begin the letter by addressing the intended recipient as “Dear Mr./Ms.” followed by their name (or just their first name or nickname if it is a close acquaintance). Remember to include the date and address at the top of the page.
Next, tie in the benefit that the gift or favor you received added to your daily life. For example, begin with a sentence like “Thank you so much for your advice about my job application. Due in large part to your help, I am now working at a job that I love.”
After that, write about how you will make use of the gift or favor you have received, such as “Now that I have a new deluxe wok, I can learn new recipes and prepare the delicious stir-fried meals I’ve always wanted to make.”
Make sure that the letter includes personal details about your life, even if they have nothing to do with the gift in question. Most times, if a person went out of their way to do something for you, they care about your well-being.
Finally, just write from the heart. While this may seem like obvious advice, if you are sincerely grateful for the gift or favor, it will come through in your writing. Just finish up the letter by saying “Sincerely” or “With thanks,” sign your name, and you’ll be ready to send it off to its intended recipient.
While it may be easier to sit down at a computer and send an email, taking the time to hand-write a thank you letter at your apartment in Alachua, FL is the sort of personal touch that will make your communication all the more personal.
