Encore thank-yous

I’m a big fan of what I call the “encore thank-you”.  That is, the repeat thank-you you give somebody a while after you’ve received their gift.

Pretty much everyone – except the rude or tardy – thanks the giver when they receive a present.  It’s what you do.

But it’s lovely to thank someone once again after you’ve had a while to use and enjoy their present.  Then you can really say thank you with meaning.  Because of this, often the encore thank-you means as much, or more, than the original thank-you.

I once contacted an old friend to let her know how much I was enjoying some tableware she had given me ten years ago.  She was delighted to hear her gifts were still in faithful, almost daily, service.
