Lauren Berger reports:
"Write the note. I suggest that you always write the thank[-]you note instead of ignoring the situation. You don’t want to be the person who didn’t write the thank[-]you note or the person who was 'ungrateful'...Acknowledge the tardiness. Start the note by saying, 'I know this is a very belated note, but I wanted to make sure I wrote to you and expressed how much I loved your gift' (or something of that nature)...Keep it positive. Don’t worry too much about the fact that the card is belated. Keep the note brief, upbeat, and grateful. Thank[-]you notes only need to be 5-7 sentences...Reference the gift. Since your note is so late, make sure you reference the gift and how much you love it, used it, or continue to use it today...Mail it. Don’t just hand this note to someone[;] send it to them. It will feel more authentic that way and like you put more into it."
