Just wondering your opinions (especially if you are under age 30) on the trend toward not sending thank you notes? I am seeing this trend in not only wedding gifts, but also wedding shower gifts and baby gifts. I have kids in their twenties who I taught to write thank yous for bday and Christmas gifts ever since they were old enough to write......so for me it really feels like the recipient did not appreciate the gift. Also, unless I handed the gift to them, it leaves me wondering if the mail lost it or delivered it to wrong address, or did the gift enclosure card somehow get lost? I know that not everyone was taught to do this growing up, but is this something that is still included on checklists and advice for new brides and new moms, or is it considered totally outdated? I know that sending a thank you note can never be the wrong thing to do, but is it optional and not expected anymore? I don't want to be judgey or to have wrong expectations, so I would love it if you younger gals can chime in on why thank you notes are so often not mailed out for wedding and baby gifts? Thanks for your input!!
