Today's tip is about showing gratefulness to loved ones, whether they hosted you for a holiday weekend or sent you what will be your new favorite pair of earrings.
At plainjane designs, our favorite way to communicate our thankful attitude is through a handwritten note. You may be thinking, "Wait a minute. The kind with real paper, a pen and EVEN a stamp?! Yep. We're talking about those.
We live in a society who communicates via text messages, emails, Facebook posts and Instagram comments - so why do we need to write a note? Two reasons:
1. The extra time you take in crafting a note, stamping it and handing it to the postman makes it even more evident just how grateful you are for the receiver's friendship and generosity.
2. When you sit down to write a letter, your notes are often more personal and less harried, producing a sincere and kind thank you note.
So, next time your friend takes you out to dinner or even if they're just being extra encouraging lately, return the favor with a thank you note!
