Writing a Thank You Note Celebrate every gift with a thank you. A handwritten note is a simple and elegant way to express your  feelings. Download "The Art of Saying Thanks"  booklet from Crane & Co. Here is a simple formula for a thank you: Greet the giver. Express your thanks. Say something nice about the gift and how you will use it. Mention the past, allude to the future. Repeat your thanks. Here’s an example:   Dear Ellen, How did you ever remember that royal blue is my all-time favorite color? The sweater is amazing, and  all the more special because it came from you. I’ll be sure to wear it next time we meet for dinner in the  city. Thanks again. Best, Anne People always remember a thank-you note, long after they forget what exactly they did to deserve it. Of course, there are the usual occasions to write thank-you notes, but what are often more interesting are the unexpected ones. Thank them for the overseas phone call on their nickel, for arranging the blind date who you actually dated again, for the wonderful cassoulet followed by the

soufflé au chocolat. Thank them for noticing, for being there (or for not being there), for the three-day stay that turned into three weeks, and for that delicious fruitcake that has been stowed away in your cupboard since Christmas. THANK-YOU BASICS There are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to writing thank-you notes. We prefer to follow this rough guideline. 1. Write the thank-you note. 2. Affix stamp. 3. Mail it. Of course, we’d prefer if you wrote it on Crane’s stationery. If you’d like a few more useful tips on the actual writing of the thank-you, we’ve been using this formula for years and have yet to have one note returned. If you are the succinct type, a correspondence card works perfectly, as does a small foldover note. Punctuality counts – and it certainly appears more sincere. Generally speaking, the message is brief and usually consists of four parts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
