Further things to consider when writing gift letters to family
Gift letters are letters you write to appreciate or say thank you when someone gives you a gift. Whether it is a birthday, Christmas, or business gift, the best way to show appreciation is by crafting a gift letter. There are many scenarios for when you might want to thank someone for a gift, especially if the gift was unexpected. May be it is a gift in the form of goods or services. Perhaps it is in the form of money. It is always a great gesture to show gratitude for a gift you have received. Gift letters should be sent as soon as possible after the gift has been received.
Perfect Gift letters should be brief and straight to the point. Start the letter by thanking the recipient for the gift and then add a warm thought like "You are the best." Mention the gift, how important it is to you, and explain what you are going to do with it or how you have benefited from it. Clearly let the recipient know how much you appreciate his/her gesture. End on a happy note and mention the next time you hope to talk to the recipient.
Letters to Family
Letters to family are letters written to people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, who commit to the mutual relationship. In most cases, these letters are sent by people who are away from their families. The purpose of writing to family members is mostly to let them know that you care about them and that they are on your mind. Apart from greetings letters to say hello to your family, you could send a congratulation letter to your daughter for graduating to the next class, an apology letter for missing your son's birthday or a thank-you letter for a gift from your wife.
Letters to family are usually casual. Therefore, the tone should be warm, sweet, and friendly. Depending on the reason for your writing, you can address a family letter to a specific person or the entire family. Open the letter with warm greetings. Deliver your message clearly. Where necessary, mention important news or events. Write in a conversational manner that makes the recipient feel as if you are actually talking to him/her. Close with a statement of reassurance of your love for the recipient and/or a request to write back.
