    Not usually, since most gifts are given in person and I am giving them a gift as well. I did send a thank you note to FI’s aunt who doesn’t usually come for Christmas but does send us gifts.

    I would just call the person and say thank you, f its long distance and i am not going to see them anytime soon. However, if I wanted to send out thank you cards I would just do an E-card… no postage!

    Absolutely! It’s still totally necessary to send Thank You cards for gifts. The fact that so many voted no is a little sad to me 🙁  It’s a dying art, that’s for sure. I love getting personalized Thank You cards from people.

    Usually just a call or email, or thank them again in person the next time I see them & let them know how I’m using the gift. Generally, I only receive gifts from someone to whom I’m also giving a gift, so it just feels redundant to expect us to Exchange thank you notes after the fact.

    I send thank you cards for gifts that I receive in the mail, which is mostly now just gifts from my grandparents. If we exchanged gifts in person, then I don’t send a thank you card.

    @hisprettygirl:  

    frankly, my husband’s family would think I was over zealous if I sent out Christmas thank yous. My Darling Husband thinks I way overdo thank you cards as it is.

    depends on who its from. From some super close friends, no a hug and/or call normally suffices. From my parents and/or siblings, no. From Aunts/Uncles/Grandparents/other older relatives, YES. From people I’m not extremely close with, yes.

    It depends. I typically only exchange gifts with family members, and we give each other a gift in person. We’ve never sent thank you’s in the family for Christmas because we figure we’re both giving a gift to each other. If it’s a non-family member, then yes I’d send a thank you.

    The holidays are a gift-giving time of year. If the gift was given in person and thanks were expressed, then I see no reason to send out thaqnk you cards. Now if the gift was sent, THEN I will send a thank you card.

    I almost thought about doing it (same with Christmas cards). I decided not to. I don’t care if I receive them I’ve noticed so there’s no point in me sending them.

    Yes…. because the person got you a gift.

    I do for the most part. We don’t celebrate Christmas, so I don’t usually have a massive gift haul. For gifts received from students I give them thank you cards. We got a gift card in the mail from my father in law and his wife so we certainly sent a thank you note for that. My mother in law gave me a gift in person so I was able to thank you her then so I didn’t send one. I see my parents all the time so I never send them thank you notes lol.
