Grandparents do many things for their grandchildren, such as giving gifts, telling stories and offering useful advice. Many grandchildren are grateful to have grandparents, yet they have no idea how to show appreciation for everything their grandparents do. Writing thank you notes, short or long, is a heartfelt and sincere way to tell your grandparents that you care.

  1. 1

    Find some stationery and a good pen that writes smoothly. Start your thank you note with the date and a salutation to your grandparents in your best handwriting. Write the note in cursive instead of print if you want to follow traditional style.

  2. 2

    Address the purpose of your you note -- for example, thanking your grandma for a gift, good advice or a favour.

  3. 3

    State why you appreciated the present or advice in your thank you note. For example, write: "The advice you gave me earlier really helped me make a very difficult choice." Inform your grandfather of how you benefited from his good deed, which will make your thank you note sound more sincere. Expressing how you benefited also will help him learn what he is doing that pleases you.

  4. 4

    Show interest in what's occurring in the life of your grandma. For example, write: "Have you got around to reading that book I told you about?" Write a sentence to update her about your life as well.

  5. 5

    Skip two spaces after the body of your note and write your closing signature.

Tips and warnings

  • Send a thank you note by e-mail if you prefer communicating electronically. E-mailing thank you notes is a good option for anyone with poor handwriting.
  • Try not to send thank you notes long after you received a present. Sending late thank you notes often diminishes sincerity.
  • Take your time when you write. Writing a rushed thank you note will give your grandparents the idea that you don't care enough to write something of quality.
