- We don't think it's necessary to give your partner/spouse a thank you card for a gift. We do find an unexpected thank you note for being awesome or doing something sweet is always appreciated!
- Christmas: If the person who got you the gift is there to watch you open it, it may be alright to forgo a thank you card...but this still makes us a little itchy.
- Birthdays: For whatever reason, we still like to give cards even if the gift-giver is there to watch us open it. If you're like us, you probably got some new stationery for your birthday so may as well give it a whirl now!
- If you are ill and cannot pen a note, do not fret - Only a-holes would expect a thank you!
Full disclosure: We both love stationery so it is very possible that our love of sending out thank-yous stems from our love of buying and hoarding stationery.
NOTE: We do not judge those who do not love the act of giving thank you cards, so by no means should anyone be thinking, "Oh poops. I didn't get her a thank you card. I hope she's not mad."
