Hmmm, here’s a conundrum. Mrs. E. and I are the grateful recipients of thank you gifts, hostess gifts and anniversary gifts that were left beneath the tree in the library during the party. (I must learn to specify no gifts on the invite…. still, they are lovely and very well-thought out.) We will, of course, send notes of thanks for the anniversary gifts. But what about the hostess gifts? Does one pen a note to say thank you for a thank you gift?
The answers are a mixed bag, with the most popular being “a thank you on the spot is sufficient.” Unless it is a particularly expensive gift in which case a phone call the next day or a quickly penned note of thanks is not remiss.
What do you think? (And isn’t it a lovely problem to have?)
