Greeting Cards Tips for Seniors: How to Say Thank You the Right Way

Proper etiquette dictates that you should send greeting cards or a thank you, especially for seasonal events such as the holidays.  But are you doing it correctly?  There are certain ways that greeting cards can be worded to help get the full effect across.

Here are a few tips on how to ensure that the greeting cards you send out are at their best!

Tips on How to Write Greeting Cards

Keep Things Simple

When writing greeting cards, it is best to keep things simple, but also be specific.  If you want to thank someone for their help, or for a recent gift – make sure that you note that in your greeting card.

People don’t always remember or catch on if you aren’t specific about it, so keep that in mind.

Acknowledge the Intent of the Greeting Card

If you want to thank someone for something in particular, make that sentiment very clear!  It makes people feel very good about themselves if someone notices something that they did for another.

Mention How You Spent Any Gifted Money

If someone gave you money for any reason, you should mention how you spent the money when writing a greeting card.  For example, you can tell them how you bought such a pretty sweater, and how it was so generous of them to provide you with a means to purchase it.

Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t mention the amount that they gave you when writing the greeting card.

Don’t Forget to Include Your Love!

Remember that if someone did something nice for you, or even if you just wanted to do something nice for them – be sure to include an ending sentiment that shows you really and truly appreciate them.  You should always make your love and wishes are well known in any greeting cards that you might send.
