****Proper wording for thank you note to boss for TWO generous gifts?????

edited November 2013 in Etiquette
My boss and his wife (who were invited and attended our wedding) gave us two VERY nice gifts ~ a Keurig and all the accessories we registered for to go with it and a very generous check.  I'm struggling with the wording of the thank you note to incorporate both gifts.  Any suggestions out there?  Thank you!

Re: ****Proper wording for thank you note to boss for TWO generous gifts?????

  • Just sincerely thank them for both gifts.  It doesn't need a canned response.  Make it conversational, yet heartfelt, and they will appreciate it,

    Yeah, I don't get the problem. Just say thank you. Mention using the Keurig etc.

    I was thinking of wording until you came back with your sassy pants on. Next time you ASK for help, just read the responses and keep it moving. 

    PS- it really isn't that hard.

    No one is going to write your thank you note for you, it has to be genuine and come from you. But to give you some ideas: say how much you appreciate their generous gift and you look forward to using it on the honeymoon (or whatever you plan to do with it) and that you are looking forward to using the Keurig. Husband loves hot chocolate and you love the hazelnut coffee(or whatever they bought you). Then thank them again for coming to the wedding.

  • Seriously? This is not a problem. Just write it like you would any other thank you but mention both gifts.

    "Thank you for the Keurig and your generous check. The Keurig will certainly make our mornings more pleasant and your generosity will help us do BLANK." 

    Whew, that was tricky. Took me a whole two seconds to write that masterpiece.

    Is this your first time writing a thank you note?

  • I had a similar issue that I don't know how to handle - my boss gave me a gift 1 month prior to my wedding that he did not attend. I sent a proper thank you note immediately. Then, he contributed to a group cash gift that was given to me at my wedding. Do you send a TYN twice to the same person? Do I go out and buy a new type of TYN so that I do not send him another written note on the same exact stationary?

    Send him and every coworker a thank you note. Stationery doesn't matter.

    How very generous! But that doesn't make the thank you note much different from any other note.

    "Dear Supervisor and Wife, Thank you very much for your generous gifts! We have already put the Keurig in our kitchen and are looking forward to many cups of delicious coffee. The check was also much appreciated. We will use the money for a decorative birdhouse we've always wanted. It was wonderful to see you at the wedding." Something along those lines.
