Thank you letters are a quick and easy way to show your appreciation to others for their thoughtfulness, and few other romantic ideas are as affordable or affective at letting someone know how much their actions mean to you. Especially in today’s impersonal, fast paced world, a few short, simple, hand written thank you cards are wonderful romantic ideas that will make a person feel great.
But unfortunately, many of us limit our thank you notes to friends and colleagues who have done something special for us, or to people who give us gifts. Sending thank you letters to gift givers and other people is great, but when is the last time you sent a romantic thank you note to that special someone who does more for you than anyone else in the world?
In many romantic relationships or marriages, especially ones that have gone on for some time, it’s easy for partners to take for granted all of the wonderful things their significant others do for them on a daily basis. While some of us wouldn’t think twice about firing off a thank you card to a colleague who helped us with a business lead, we might overlook the fact that our sweetheart does much more significant things for us every day.
Regardless of whether or not your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife has hinted that they might like a gesture of gratitude for the time and effort they put into your relationship, it helps to keep in mind that everyone and I mean everyone appreciates getting a “thank you” every now and then for the things they do. I don’t care if you think your love would think it’s sappy or silly to receive a hand written note thanking them for being a great partner. I guarantee you they’ll love it!
And your thank you note to your husband, wife, boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t have to be for any specific, special event, either. Why not write to your sweetheart just to say thanks for loving you? Or for being there every day? Or for anything at all?
What form of a thank you note you use is up to you. You could grab an inexpensive romantic card on the way home from work and add a few short words of your own, or pen a long, flowery, romantic letter if that suits your relationship better. You know your special someone better than anyone else, and oftentimes a few short words are just as powerful and moving as a long letter.
Speaking of a few short words being just as powerful… I need to wrap this post up! Now go write your special someone a thank you note, doggone it!
