With so many formalities being forgotten, the thank you card seems to be on its way out. Even Emily Post says that if you open a gift in front of someone and you thank that person in person, then you don’t have to send a written thank you note. But, if the gift giver is a person from an older generation, do send a written note. The thank you note becomes “an appropriate gesture of respect and consideration.”

I think if someone takes the time to give you a gift, that person should receive a thank you note. According to Emily Post, a thank you note should be written as soon as possible but better late than never. In order to make thank you notes into a positive activity, think about the gift you received or the kindness someone offered. If someone emails a greeting via an “e” card, then an email thank you is appropriate.
