A royal thank you

I have recently been honoured with a thank you letter from Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. This post will teach you how to write a good thank you letter, just like the one I received.

A thank you letter must first and foremost be sincere.

Following that, the rest is easy. Just follow these guidelines:

1. Mention the gift you received

2. Describe what you like about it

3. Talk about how you are going to use it

Dear Aunt Rosa

Thank you for the lovely cake stand you gave me for my graduation. I love how it perfectly matches the colour theme of my kitchen.

I will display every cake I bake on it.

Love from,

Jessica

A thank you note must be sent within a reasonable time of receiving the present, this is usually a week. If you forget, just send it as soon as you remember, preferably before another present arrives.
