  • Depends on where the gift came from.

    Parties, holidays (co-workers and such), etc within the week.

  • I always send them right away (for me, right away usually means 3-4 days!)

  • I never send them. And I usually feel guilty about it. But I always call the person and thank them.

  • Within a week.

  • Right away if the gift was received by mail.
    The next day if presented with a gift in person.
    Within the week of coming back from the honeymoon.

    The sooner, the better because then it feels more genuine.

  • I always send a thank you card the day after I receive a gift. I also send a thank you card the day after we've had dinner at someones house or if they took us out for dinner.

  • I never send them. I have never seen the point. I say thankyou when I get the gift, why do I have to do it twice? I'm not a big fan of getting them either. I feel like I didn't give the gift so I could get some kind of recognition, I gave it because I care about the person, getting a Thankyou not just makes me feel guilty and greedy!

  • I try to send them as soon as I can cause if I don't theres a really good chance that i'll forget.

    Answer by Finkette at 11:45 AM on Sep. 6, 2010

  • I will forget if i don't get them out right away.
