I’m leaving my job and several customers surprised me with gifts with thanks for my years of service. do I send thank you cards for thank you gifts?

Yes, even thank-you gifts get thank-you notes.

I am a huge proponent of thank you notes for many occasions. I am wondering though is there an environmental consideration when writing notes? Sure, we can chose recycled note card paper and envelopes but I am wondering if there is or is going to be an email thank you note acceptance at some point. I am choosing to think about this as an option with technology these days and new-age thinking. I don’t like all new-age thinking but would love to dialogue about this issue. and especially about a group email thank you note. Does it depend upon how it is written to the recipient???
