My daughter went to a b-day party 2 mths ago & never got a thank you card. Do you sent out thank you's when your child gets a gift for something?

  • I do thank yous for everything. I did for my wedding, baby shower, any gifts that were received when my dd was born, and just recently my dd's baptisim. I believe I get to caught up with the event that I don't even get a chance to talk with everyone and a thank you is the least I can do. We have rather large parties but even for small ones I would do thank yous.

  • not when the person was at the party, we thank them in person. If we get something through the mail we will either call or send a thank you card.

  • we always send thank-you cards/notes. i try to be a cheerful giver, but when your thoughtfulness goes unacknowledged, without even a quick phone call to say the package or card w/money-giftcard tend to not be so cheerful. i mean, how hard is it to write a quick note, an email, a text say 'thanks'??

  • Only for relatives. I don't think a random classmate from my daughters' classes would appreciate it as much. They do say their thanks when receiving the gift and when their guests leave, they thank them for coming.

  • I have never sent out thank you cards.. We thank in person.
