The Gifts Received & Thank You’s form is a reminder to show appreciation for the kindness of those
who have graciously blessed you or your family with a gift. Though you probably expressed a verbal
“thank you” when given the gift, a hand-written note is a tool to cultivate a grateful heart while
making a deeper connection with someone who cares about you.
Don’t you feel appreciated and loved when someone has taken the time to craft and send a thank you note to you? Model for your children how to receive a gift with enthusiasm and grace, regardless of their personal feelings about the item or the person giving it. Then, coach them to write their own thank you note to bless the giver.
