Q. I have been receiving email ‘thank you’ notes for gifts that I have sent for various reasons.
Are email thanks you’s acceptable for receiving a gift (housewarming, baby, birthday, etc) or should hand-written notes still be sent? Does this vary by age?
A. Handwritten notes should be sent rather than email greetings. However, given how many people don’t write their thanks at all, an email thank-you is better than none at all.
