One of the many things I was taught at a very young age was to always write Thank You notes for gifts, after staying at someone’s home, and as I got older – after job interviews. There is something about a handwritten note that is so personal and heartfelt.
I was told by one of my past employers, that aside from my experience, one of the reasons why I stood out was because I sent a handwritten note thanking him for his time.
I make sure that my boys follow in my footsteps when it comes to this as well. I instill in them thankfulness and appreciation. Something as simple as the handwritten note can means something so much to the recipient, as it always does to me – and I want them to understand that.
The boys have a few days after their party or the holiday to relax, but then I am on them to get the cards completed – with a personalized little note and into the mailbox.
I also have a thing for stationary (and pens) so you can imagine the note cards I have accumulated over the years!
When each of the boys were born, I had note cards printed with their names on them to use as Thank You notes or to accompany the newest baby picture. (Yes, I am also old school in that I still mail out to my family the boys’ school pictures.)

I have a penchant for monograms. I have notes monogrammed with my initial(s) similar to these:
