I read your article regarding written thank-you notes. It mentions notes for gifts received at holidays like Christmas. I always thought that it was not expected at that time of year, as the gifts are usually exchanges between two people. What is considered a proper “thank you” for such gifts? I have a 2½-year-old daughter and would like to make sure I know the most appropriate way to handle such situations.
