Handwrite the note

Even if you don’t have the best penmanship. Just make sure it’s legible.

Don’t worry about the length

The length of the note doesn’t matter, but avoid writing just a single line.

Be sure to mention the reason for the note

Your note should include a thank you for the wonderful evening, your appreciation of a thoughtful gift, or the host’s amazing generosity.

How did the gesture make you feel?

Let your note’s recipient know how their act of kindness made you feel or how you’ll find a great use for the gift.

The closing

Before you end the note, add a friendly, “Looking forward to seeing you soon!”
