When you send someone a gift on a special occasion, it is a good idea to send a letter accompanying it. This will make the gift more personalized and also prove to the recipient that you value him or her. A gift unaccompanied by a card or letter may appear materialistic, which is something that a letter will be able to rectify. The letter will convey that you really care about the person and you are not just getting a formality over with by sending a gift.
Here are some tips to write a gift letter:
- Convey your true feelings in the letter while keeping it concise.
- If you are sending the letter with an official gift, the letter will have to follow a formal format. However, if you are sending the gift and letter to friends or some acquaintances, you can afford to be casual.
- Being casual does not mean that punctuation, grammatical and spelling mistakes are allowed and you have to check the letter thoroughly for these.
- If you are sending the gift and letter on a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, remember to greet the person.
