Saying Thank You is Always In Style

Cards c/o Treat, but opinions are all my own.

From a young age my mother taught me the importance of a handwritten thank you note; every time my sister or I got a present she had us sit and write one to show our appreciation.  While I may have found this annoying when I was younger, today I am so thankful that she got me in the habit of writing thank you notes.  It makes me sad that in today's day we've gotten away from writing these simple sentiments.  I am someone who loves receiving a thank you note, and notices when someones does not send one.  Thank you notes are a classic way to show gratitude and are something that are always in style.

Today there are so many pretty options for different cards and stationery, and using them will add a chic touch to your note.  This is where Treat (the new greeting card website by Shutterfly) comes in! They have a wide variety of  super cute thank you cards and stationery to choose from.  Treat allows you to really customize your cards by adding pictures, changing wording on the cards, and even adding your signature for you.  If you want Treat will even send the card out for you making everything quite simple for you!

Tips for Writing a Thank You Note:
-Be sincere, always write a thank you note from your heart.
-You only need three sentences when writing a thank you note, which makes them easier to write.
-Be timely and send your note out as soon as possible!  Do not wait longer than 2 weeks to write it.
-Use a pretty card or Stationery, like the ones from Treat, to add a special touch.

Thank you notes can show off your class and style, and are so simple to write out.  Handwritten notes are chic and something that are always in style, no matter what.

  2. I agree thank you notes are SO important and these ones are truly fabulous!

  3. I totally agree that thank-you notes are underrated nowadays, but people really do appreciate it when you've taken the time to properly thank them.

  4. My biggest regret from my wedding came in the months afterwards. I had the thank you notes designed, printed out, stamps and envelopes ready and a list of what to thank people for, etc all done- and then life happened. We found out we were pregnant, then not, then it was months later and I never sent them. Of course, we thanked them in person, but what an easy thing to do that we completely missed.


  5. I love those cute and simple thank you cards! So cute! Technology has totally taken over and I feel like people forget how important (and sweet) a simple thank you note is!

  8. Truly nothing better than a handwritten note - people remember yours thanks so much more when you take just a little extra time to make it special, opposed to an e-mail or text! And you have some extra cute stationary here! :) Xo, Alison
