Analysis
sample thank you letter

Dear Bernie,

Lisa and I are still talking about the great afternoon and evening you gave us in New York. It is an occasion that we will long remember.

Although you probably take New York in stride, everything we saw and did was a grand adventure: the boat trip around Manhattan Island, cocktails at the Stork Club, dinner at the Four Seasons, the famous cheesecake at Lindy’s.

The buying trip was very successful, and my boss was immensely pleased with my selections. Never again will I believe the old adage, “You can’t mix business with pleasure.” You provided the pleasure — and, incidentally some of the business. Thank you!

Sample Thank-You Letter

Don’t view writing a thank-you letter as a chore, as so many children do every year at Christmas and their birthday.

  • Be enthusiastic and genuine. Even if you don’t like something, there is always at least one nice thing you can find to say about it. So find it — and say it.
  • Be warm. Write in a friendly, personal style.
