There are many different ways and reasons one would sent a thank you card. Most people would think that thank you cards are only sent for wedding gifts and so on. But you could send thank you cards for birthdays, graduation,weddings, engagement parties etc. There is no limit to sending out thank you cards to people that came for something at your house or where ever.
The celebration of your wedding anniversary is one of the anticipated events that can happen yearly. You can choose to have a grandiose celebration and create unique invitations for your guests.
Call your attorney and cut them out of the Will. Kidding! There is nothing that you can do other than speak to your brother or sister about the situation. ”X, you know that I love Janie and Lisa, but it bothers me that they never acknowledge the gifts that I send. My time and resources are not infinite and I put a lot of effort into remembering the girls on their birthdays and on holidays. It hurts me very much that they don’t think enough of me to say ’thank you’. They are fine young ladies and I know how hard you work at raising them properly.
No, if you thank someone at the time they give you the gift, you do not have to send a thank you note. However, if the person when to a lot of effort (made you a quilt, found some rare thing you collected.) it is a very nice thing to let them know how much it meant to you with a little note. We all like personal mail and we all get very little of it. So five minutes of your time and a 37 cent stamp can really add joy to the giver’s day.
Personalize each note. Don’t send the same, generic message to each guest; it sends the message that you were tired of writing notes and too lazy to personally acknowledge them. Take the time to pen something individual and thank them for their specific gift by name. You may even want to mention how you plan to use it.
