Acknowledging Appreciation: A thank-you for a thank-you

by epi on August 7, 2012

Q: A nonclient recently sent me a $100 dining gift card to thank me for spending some uncompensated time advising him.  Should I send a thank-you note for his “thank you” gift card?

A: Absolutely.  If  the other person had simply sent you a thank-you note, nothing more would have been required on your part.  But in this case, the gift requires a thank-you note not only to show your appreciation, but also to let him know that you received the gift card.
