Wantist: Give Amazing Gifts

Saying Thank You with Brandi Bernoskie

We Heart Paper Thank You

A favorite quote goes, “Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” For our first in an ongoing series on thank you notes, here’s Brandi.

I started writing thank you notes routinely after watching a lecture on time management given by Randy Pausch. Randy was an incredible professor and person and firmly believed that one of the best things we could do was thank other people for their help. There’s always a pile of blank thank you notes on my desk, making it easy to grab one and write the moment I think about it. What’s even more amazing is how much people appreciate a hand-written thank you — I’ve been thanked just for sending a sweet thank you. Here are some of my favorite thank you notes out there right now:

Up top, my first pick, something simple from We Heart Paper.

KTF Design Thank You
Something fun from KFT Design.

Steel Petal Press Thank You
Something sweet from Steel Petal Press.

Rifle Paper Co. Thank You
Something stylish from Rifle Paper Co.

Positively Green Thank You
Something inspiring from Positively Green.

Terrain Thank You
Something witty from Terrain.

  2. handwritten thank you notes {or just notes in general} are gifts within themselves. great idea to keep a stack on your desk for staying on track.

  3. Hi Brandi–yes and I love the sweet and-written note you sent me a while back and these are all lovely as well. So happy you will be moving closer and I’m excited for your future! xocc
