If you have been invited to a holiday party or get-together, it is important to show your gratitude for the invitation by sending a thank you note, or a thank you email or text at a minimum (or you could always call!)
There are tons of inexpensive and beautiful cards you can find at Target, Amazon, and Hallmark. Stock up on thank you notes for every occasion for around $5, ranging from birthdays, weddings, parties, and holidays. They last for a long time, and are a great investment for future outings!
You only need 2 lines to write on the note, but it goes a long way. It shows that you care about the invitation given from the host, and you appreciated the party they threw. Some people stop giving gifts for holidays when they are repeatedly not thanked, because they do not feel appreciated for throwing a party.
Just think about it this way, if you were on the other end, you would like to be acknowledged for your celebration, and have your guests be grateful to enjoy it with you. It only takes a few seconds to do it, and you were always taught to say “please” and “thank you” so don’t forget to thank your host.
