I don't know anyone who looks forward to writing thank you notes, especially not when there's a long list of card recipients, but it's one of those tasks that's best done promptly. By making a list of gifts and givers while the event is fresh in your mind, you can avoid embarrassing missteps. Then, arm yourself with the list and sit down with your notes and a pen to write them according to the simple formula of naming the gift and saying at least one polite, sincere thing about each item. By writing your cards and sending them out promptly, the gift givers will feel appreciated and you'll have one less post-celebration task hanging over your head!
