Books

  • A Modern Guide to Writing Thank-You Notes will provide you with everything that you need to be a successful thank you note writer. I compiled this book after two years of working on this blog as some people prefer to have a printed reference. There are templates, tips, and over 400 examples because sometimes you need a little help with knowing what to say in a note. 
  • In A Simple Act of Gratitude, author John Kralik shares his truly inspirational story of how writing over 300 thank you notes to family, friends and business contacts in one year changed his life.

Tools

  • Grammarly is a tool that you can use to check your grammar. Copy your thank-you note text into the Grammarly editor and get feedback on where commas should go and other grammar fixes. There are free and paid versions available. I highly recommend this tool for job interview thank-you notes when incorrect grammar may reflect poorly on you. And, Grammarly can catch the issue where a word is spelled correctly but it's the wrong word (their vs. there). 
  • Gift List Tracker is a printable PDF to help you keep track of gifts given at events like baby showers, wedding showers, weddings, and graduations. I failed to use a document like this when I got married and still do not know who gave us a mini-crock pot.
