Mind Your Manners: 5 Thank You Note Tips

Writing thank you notes has become a lost art form. While phone calls, text messages and emails may get the job done, a handwritten thank you note says so much more. Last month we met with Erin Condren, founder of her namesake stationery and lifestyle essentials, including the beloved LifePlanner. Condren, who was celebrating her brand’s 10-year anniversary in Soho, New York, shared five pro-tips to writing a thank you note and why thank you notes remain an essential part of today’s digital world.

As stated by the mother-of-two, taking the time and effort to send something thoughtful and tailored is much more heartfelt, and is a tangible way to show your appreciation. Not only do Condren always make sure to write thank you notes myself, but also she often saves the ones she receive. “It’s so nice to look back at sweet words of thanks and relive the memories of past celebrations,” Condren said.

Below are Condren’s five pro-tips to becoming a thank you note connoisseur.
