@Sharebear:  I would have to disagree with your friends, you write a thank you card ANYTIME ANYONE gives you something or does something nice for you.

Christmas/birthday/wedding/house warming/bridal shower

Pet sitting/House sitting/Tire Changing/etc. etc.

But my family sends a lot of cards 🙂

@mchitt329:  Wow, they sure do. For me the majority of the stuff you listed would just get an in person thank you. For gifts though I always had to write a thank you card/letter/email whatever to aunts and uncles for gifts when I was growing up.

Send thank yous!  Do it promptly as you’ll have more emotional raw material to go off of.  Your friends are probably just trying to justify their own faux pas.

If someone went through the trouble to buy me a gift, I will go through the trouble to write them a thank you note. Shower gift? Thank You card. Wedding? Thank You card. Hosted a brunch or shower? Thank You card.

You will never go wrong by thanking people.
