Dear EtiKate
Happy New Year! Do I need to write thank you letters to my family when I have already thanked them on Christmas day?

Dear Readers

The best way to thank someone for a gift is in person. Thank you notes are needed as gifts are usually opened away from the giver.

Thank you notes should be sent to people to let them know that you have received and appreciate the gifts.

If you have thanked your family personally after having opened their gifts, then you do not need to send a thank you note. Bear in mind though, the more “old school” members of your family might still expect a thank you letter, and you should write to them.

For those who spent Christmas with another family, remember to write to thank them for their hospitality.
