Do you send thank you notes to family and friends? Does it matter what method one uses to send?

I LOVE making cards, so yes, I send "Thank You" cards, as well any kind of card....my momma brung me up rite.

What gets to me is the "no thank you" non-cards I don't receive....so rude !

To me, a thank you note responds in kind to someone who went out of their way, stopped their everyday life, to pay attention to you. Sending the very least of acknowledgments, a slight nod by email, is ungracious, a response not in kind.

Writing paper is Stationery, a statue is Stationary.

ah but this is poetry 446, perhaps this misapplication was intended by the "artist"

Just a thought - it simply does not occur to me to have a preconception of how someone should respond to what it gives me pleasure to do. If I have mailed or sent a substantial item, I do appreciate knowing it was received, and when people make acknowledgement of any kind I am warmly impressed. I try to always acknowledge gifts appropriately, but the manner of acknowledgment seems to me to be proportional to the gift or gesture. When, for example, people insist on paying for a meal, I always say, "I'll get you next time!" and then make a real point to do so. I guess I am saying I think it is gracious to put the expectations on oneself, rather than others.

Glad this is anonymous!

I thank in person when possible, and e-mail later if I remember to, but my elderly mother-in-law gets a hand-written thank-you. In general nobody thanks for presents, in our kids' families - the next generation - which I think is poor training for the younger generations. An e-mail would be fine.
