Early thank you notes?

I would write a thank you note now, since the tickets are confirmed. It’s not a promise of a future gift, they are bought and paid for and now in your control.

Personally, given the generosity of the gift from a non-family member, I would ALSO make it a point to purchase a gift of a local specialty for your boss while on your honeymoon as a thank you once you return along with a card with a handwritten note talking about how wonderful your honeymoon was and thanking them again.

That’s a nice boss. Thank yous are due as soon as you are given a gift. In this case, I’d write the note as soon as the tickets are purchased. I agree that I’d write another one in this case after the trip as well.

I agree, send it now and get a thank you gift while you’re on the vacation.

There’s really no such thing as an “early” thank you.  As soon as you receive a gift you should send a thank you note.  Bringing him a local gift afterward is a great idea.smile
