Acknowledging Value of Handwritten Thank You Notes
I surprised my 14 nieces and nephews who are all young adults with a gift of $100 each this past Christmas. All expressed thanks - even the one who is a very high earner. Four took the extra step of sending a handwritten thank you note. Is there a reasonable way to make this an opportunity to show them the value of writing a note? I plan to give them $100 again next Christmas. Would it be ok to give the note writers an extra $5 or $10 and make a brief mention of it at our family Christmas gathering?
