After the intro, it’s good to say thank you right away. State the gift received and feel free to add a bit of flourish. A “thanks so much for…” or a “I’m very thankful for…” definitely work.


Step 3

Name a specific feature you liked about the gift, how it will be useful, or why it is relevant. For example, the bedazzled orchid jewelry box from Aunt Judy is Pantone’s color of the year. Find a positive and focus on that!
