Every gift must be acknowledged with a thank you note, so save the cards and write down who gave you what as you open the gifts.
To make this task easier, order personalized thank you notes well in advance of graduation. Consider ordering the graduation themed return address labels. We offer a good selection of graduation thank you cards and return address labels Insert affiliate link here.
We suggest that you set a goal of five cards each day. It’s best to get them out within six weeks of the party. Tape the checks to a cupboard and only deposit them when the thank you note has been mailed.
Always hand-write the thank you notes and hand address the envelopes. Mention the gift specifically in your note and express your appreciation. If the gift was money, don’t mention the exact amount, but do mention how you plan to spend the money.
Avoid making every thank you look like a form letter by adding a personal reference.
Here are some suggested templates for thank you notes, but please try to make them personal.
