    How do you write a thank you note after your birthday?

    A:

    Thank you notes for birthdays address the recipient and make a specific reference to anything that she gifts to the writer. Every note should bear a unique personalization, even if the recipient only sends a card, attends the party or brings refreshments to the party rather than a present. If the writer gives his thanks in person, he isn't obligated to write a note, though writing one remains a thoughtful gesture.
